Signs & Plaques of the Month - August, September and October

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

Sample of Our Favorite Signs & Plaques made this past Year

We made these signs & plaques from Mahogany (Homeland Security plaque), California Redwood (Norman's Nursery), and High-Density-Urethane / HDU (all other signs in photo). These were carved 3-D, or 2,5-D, or engraved. Some were sandblasted, others were carved smooth.

This page shows  some of the beautiful signs & plaques we have  made in   August, September and Octoberfor 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.

Our Favorite Recent Large Signs of the Month

Although we make many thousands of small signs and plaques each year, we love to make large signs! On the left is a large carved and sandblasted 3-D HDU entrance sign for the Urban Greenway at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. It features two carved egrets and a lake scene. The 12 ft wide sign was reinforced with an aluminum backplate and heavy perimeter aluminum beams. On the right is one of our large wall plaques, which we made for the Haverford Police Department. This supersize wall plaque features a 3-D bas relief carving of the Coat-of-Arms and V-carved engraved text. We gilded the border, text and the eagle and ribbon with 24K gold leaf. Gold leaf changes color from dark gold to nearly white depending on the lighting.
