The Natural Look

We use the best piece(s) of wood we can to match the color and feel you want with your sign. We most commonly use Cedar, Redwood, Oak, Maple, and others. Each piece is joined and treated to resist weathering, blasted or routed, then stained and painted to create your design.

​High-Density Urethane, also called sign foam, is extremely lightweight and naturally water resistant. The material is easily carved, molded, and shaped, allowing for intricate three dimensional designs. HDU is mainly used for routing, and can also be sandblasted to create a false wood grain, giving it the appearance of a wooden sandblasted sign.

Sandblasted and routed Wood


Built to Last

Roadside, building-side, or inside, we can fabricate and install just about any side you can think up.

Wood: Large single sheets of composite wood, or MDO, are used for for lettering and decals. Thicker and heavier than metal, MDO is preferred for hanging signs. Can be painted any color.

For a beautiful wood grain look, we use natural wood; commonly Cedar, Pine, or Oak.
Metal: Aluminum is a trade standard for wall signs, standing signs, parking signs, you name it. Comes in several thicknesses and colors to match your artwork's needs. DiBond is a composite board, made of a synthetic core sandwiched between two thin pieces of aluminum. It's thin, light-weight, durable, and weather resistant. Lighter than plain old aluminum, comes in white and black.

Synthetic: Many new options are available for interior and exterior projects alike. Ask us what's good for your project.
