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.

Oldies but Goodies

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.
