Carved Lake Residence Sign, with Raised Text, 2.5-D Multilevel Relief, Artist Painted with Artist Brush and Airbrush

We offer custom carved 2.5-D, 3-D and engraved dimensional address signs and plaques. These are fabricated from wood (cedar, redwood, mahogany, oak, maple, cherry) or HDU. We also make metal-coated HDU (24K gold  and silver leaf gilded, brass, bronze, copper, silver-nickel stainless steel, and aluminum) and sell wood and wrought iron posts and scroll brackets. We recommend HDU for painted outdoor signs; they last longer, require less maintenance, cost less and carve more precisely. We recommend wood (usually Cedar or Redwood ) signs when you want a wood or rustic look; most of our wood signs are stained and clear-coated rather than painted. If you can't find a design you like in this Gallery, we will design you a sign for free. We will design and build the exact custom sign you want!
