Sign Galleries


Art SignWorks, Inc. is an independent family-owned and operated manufacturing company with a National presence throughout the USA and Canada, and many overseas locations. We  specialize in designing and building artistic dimensional carved hand-crafted wood, High-Density-Urethane (HDU), and bronze and brass signs and plaques of all sizes which are completely custom, yet are easily affordable for small and large businesses, government agencies, the courts, the military, police and firefighters, and non-profit organizations such as churches and clubs, farms, apartments & condos, and residences. We have three generations of family working in this family-owned  business. We were founded in 2005, and are chartered as a Corporation in the State of California. We are certified as a woman-owned small business. For Federal contracts and PO's, we are listed in SAM (System for Award Management), and have products listed on the GSA schedule, as well as on many state and city registries.We sell our custom products  retail (factory direct) to residential, commercial, non-profit, military, and government clients throughout the USA. We also sell our products at wholesale prices,  to over 400 independent and franchise sign retailers and re-sellers in every US state, and Canada. We are a preferred supplier of carved wood and HDU signs to several National sign companies, including SignWorld, Fast Signs, Signs-by-Tomorrow, and Signarama. 

Most of our operations and personnel  are located on a 11,000 ft2 factory  in two adjacent industrial buildings in Murrieta, CA, at 41785 Elm Street, Suite 302, in the Temecula Valley in Riverside County. Our location is not important, because we ship our custom products to every US state and Canadian province, as well as most overseas locations. We also have over 400 sign shop distributors located throughout the USA. 

However, our design and manufacturing factory is located in Murrieta, in Southern California in the Temecula Valley.  The Temecula Valley is well-known for its over fifty boutique wineries and vineyards. Our factory is located 60 miles north of San Diego, and about 90 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. We are surrounded by beautiful mountains, the highest being Mt. Jacinto, 10,834 ft, snow-capped in winter.  Our customer relations staff, project coordinators, computer design facility and manufacturing factory are all located at our Murrieta facility. We design and fabricate over 6000 signs and plaques each year in this facility. You can call us M-F 9-5 Pacific time at 951-698-8484 or email us at Our three customer service representatives, Christie, Regina and Liz will be happy to discuss with you your signage needs. They are ably supported by our three in-house designers, Kevin, Derrick, and Chris, and our three 3-D contract designers.

In our factory we have extensive computer design facilities with a network of 9 computers, printers, vinyl cutters, a large sandblast booth (handles up to 14 feet signs), a fully-equipped paint spray booth, and a complete woodworking shop with many saws, routers, sanders, planers, joiners, drills, lathes, and five  large-table (5 x 12 ft) computer-numerically-controlled (CNC)  routers and 3-D carving machines. We also have our metal shop located there, where we can cut, bend, weld, and coat various metals, and make custom aluminum signs, wrought iron hangers, and steel and aluminum posts and frames. 

Members of Our Production Team

 We use a  CNC water-jet cutter that  cuts elaborate metal and plastic sheet shapes precisely with smooth edges.   We have a metal-coating and polishing facility (bronze, brass, copper, silver-nickel, aluminum and stainless steel) and a special clean area where we apply hand-crafted gold-leaf and silver-leaf gilding.We also can print full-color digital vinyl for photo or artist painting appliques on our signs and plaques. We have a large  heated temperature-controlled drying room where we can cure the coatings on our signs & plaques. We have  rigorous manufacturing process, QA and schedule control  systems to ensure every sign we make is compliant with client specifications and meets our high  quality standards,  and is delivered on time.  We have a very experienced and professional staff to ensure your signs or plaques meet your expectations. Visitors are welcome any time to our factory  during our business hours; we will give you a free tour and show you some sign samples.The short video below shows some of our design & manufacturing processes.
