Carved Wood and HDU Signs

A Few of Our Recent Signs & Plaques

WE HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF UNIQUE CUSTOM DESIGNS AND WE USE ONLY PREMIUM MATERIALS. ALL OF OUR SIGNS AND MATERIALS ARE MADE IN THE USA.. We create beautiful, attractive and unique Three dimensional (3D) carved and 2.5 sandblasted signs, with letters & art elevated (raised and bas-relief) or engraved (e.g., incised, bas-relief recessed, V-carved) into the sign. Our signs range from very simple, inexpensive sandblasted or routed text signs to more expensive signs with complex art, construction, and high-end materials. We make our signs and plaque substrates from wood (Redwood, Cedar, Mahogany, Maple, Cherry, Oak , and vintage barnwood); synthetic wood equivalents and plastics (i.e., 20 lb/ft3 and 30 lb/ft3 premium Precision Board High Density Urethane (HDU) ,acrylic, PVC, glass, and Extended Polystyrene/EPS); and metals (aluminum, steel).

We use advanced computerized design, computer-controlled carving, routing and cutting ,3D bas-relief carving, computer-controlled laser engraving and water jet cutting (for metal); hand-carving; multi-level sandblasting; polishing and burnishing; and cut-out and stand-off letters & art appliques to achieve 3D effects. We make dimensional and carved plaques and signs which are then hand-painted with colorful long-lasting UV-resistant enamels, and/or stained and clear-coated (wood only), and/or gold- or silver leaf gilded, and/or metal coated (bronze, brass, copper, silver-nickel, stainless steel, antique iron). We can also add a digitally-printed vinyl applique for photos or detailed art onto a carved sign. We have a unique capability for combining various artistic techniques, manufacturing technologies, and materials into a single sign that will last for many years in any climate.

We make indoor and outdoor dimensional signs and plaques for both residences, businesses, government organizations and non-profit groups (such as churches) in sizes from 6 inches to 20 feet wide. We have a wide variety of designs; we can make almost any design, any shape, any font style, any color scheme, any logo/ emblem/ art, and we design and build custom carved 3D bas-relief designs that most sign shops cannot or will not make. Our craftsmen are the best, and we guarantee customer satisfaction on every sign or plaque. We have a 3 year warranty on every sign or plaque.

We also offer wrought iron hangers and scroll brackets, wood and metal posts, and monument sign rock & brick and Extended Polystyrene EPS foam bases & pillars. We design & integrate signs, and install signs in Southern California. We can also arrange for a local contractor to install our signs anywhere in the USA or Canada.

We can modify any design shown in the Galleries, replicate an existing sign from a photo, develop a completely new custom design for you, work collaborately with you to develop your own design, or build- to-print an already completed design. We offer a very wide range of styles including formal, ornate, elegant, bold, commercial, stylized, whimsical, and rustic/western. Much of our business is one or few of a kind signs or plaques for residences and businesses, but we also do large production jobs, up to thousands of similar signs or plaques for apartments, residential communities, hotels, golf courses and retail chains, and we sell our products wholesale to over 300 sign retailers, including sign shops, designers, contractors, and brokers (see Wholesale to Sign Retailers).
