Signs & Plaques of the Month - March, April and May

Below are a Few of the Signs & Plaques We Made in the Last 3 Months

Sample of Our Favorite Signs & Plaques We Designed and Fabricated in March, April and May

We made these signs & plaques from African Mahogany, Redwood , Cedar, and High-Density-Urethane (HDU). These were carved in 3-D bas-relief, 2,5-D relief, or engraved. Some were sandblasted, others were carved smooth. Some are painted, others stained or metal-plated in bronze, aluminum, 24K gold, or Sterling silver. All are clear-coated twice.

This page shows  some of the beautiful signs & plaques we have  made in  march, April and May for our valued clients. These are included in our 45 photo Galleries  among our 8000 other photos. However, this page hi-lights the  new designs that we have developed in cooperation with our clients, who we work closely with to implement their ideas on desired sign shapes, artwork, colors, text, font styles, etc. We often incorporate their logos, seals, crests,  or favorite artwork into the designs of their signs; others we design from scratch or modify one of our existing designs. We also build to print existing designs using drawings or photos of existing signs.

Sign of the Month for March

We selected this beautiful and elegant sign as the Sign-of-the-Month for March. We made two of these very large (12 ft high) entrance signs for the City of Coos Bay, Oregon. They are are outdoor signs mounted on posts. They are carved in 3-D relief from 20 lb/ft3 Precision Board Plus High-Density-Urethane (HDU). This sign was made of 5 separate pieces of HDU carved separately on one of our 3-D routers. The sign uses a sandwich construction of two 2 inch thick HDU sheets, with an internal steel frame made of 2 inch x 1 inch tubes welded together and imbedded in the back HDU sheet. The two sheets of HDU and internal frame were epoxied and screwed together to make a seamless robust sign. Hand sanding and filling was done to make a smooth seamless sign. The sign was prime coated and painted with 1-Shot sign enamels, using an airbrush and artist brush. The entire sign was then coated with three coats of long-lasting Matthews polyurethane acrylic clear. This plaque will last decades in the marine climate without the paint fading.
