Custom Carved Wooden Signs and Plaques

Product Line 3 - Custom Carved Wood Signs & Plaques

Welcome to  Product Line 3,  which shows a few of our  wood (Cedar, Redwood, Mahogany, Walnut, Cherry, Oak and Maple) indoor and outdoor signs & plaques. We have over 200 photos of examples of wood signs on this page, and we have over 2000 photos of wood signs and plaques distributed in other Application Galleries throughout this website  (e.g, farm signs, beach-house signs, military signs, etc.) on this site.

If you have just entered our website and you want an overview of our company and all our products or other informational web pages such as our  Home page, you can view these by clicking on a title in the  gray box in the upper left margin. Other Product and Application photo galleries can be viewed by using the slider to scroll down that gray box and clicking on a numbered title.   If you are using a cell phone, you can click on the 3 red bars on the top right of your screen to see this menu.

We make our wood signs  and plaques  for both outdoor and indoor use. We use the very best materials and manufacturing processes to create our wood signs. We use prime, kiln-dried, knot-free, vertical grain all-heart Redwood and Western Red Cedar woods for most of our outdoor wood signs and some indoor plaques. Our indoor plaque s& signs  can also be made from furniture-grade  hardwoods such as African Mahogany,  Walnut,  Oak, Maple, Cherry, and Teak. See the figure below for examples of grain structure,   but the colors depend on the color stain used.   Our wood signs are often  stained (we use Minwax fine wood stains) and clear-coated with Matthews 2-part MAP. They can also be painted solid colors with MAP automotive-type 2-part sign paints. We provide a warranty of 2 years, and our  outdoor wood signs and plaques should  last for over a decade with proper maintenance.  Indoor wood plaques and signs will last many decades.

Wood Species we Use for Our Signs an Plaques. Most Outdoor Signs are Made of Western Red Cedar or Redwood

2.5-D Multi-Level Relief Marquetry Plaque with Walnut, Maple and Walnut Woods

 

We have many different styles to choose from. These premium carved, natural wood signs and plaques can be carved in  2 1/2 dimensions (2.5-D) ,3 dimensions (3-D) or engraved relief . They can also be sandblasted to accentuate the wood grain.

2.5-D signs differ from 3-D signs in that the artwork, borders and text have flat top surfaces, usually at three to five levels of relief or elevation.  3-D signs have rounded or curved top surfaces, like bas-relief sculptures. Sometimes we carve small 3-D appliques out of HDU  (e.g., trees & flowers, domestic animals, wildlife,  fish,  birds, etc. ) and paint and mount them on wood signs or plaques. We also engrave text, borders, and artwork directly into the wood. They can be  engraved by either V-carving (prismatic) or U-carving (flat bottom).

PRICES. Our custom designed smaller 3-D signs, 18 inches to 24 inches wide, have retail prices that range $200 to $500. Medium size single-face signs, from 24 inches to 48 inches wide, have retail prices from $500 to $1000 and up. Large signs, from 48 inches to 96 inches, have retail prices from $1000 to $3000 and up. Our sign prices depend primarily on sign area, whether they are single or double-faced, their design detail and complexity (e.g., depth of carving, complexity and fine detail, number of paint colors and amount of hand-painting, and any special features (e.g., steel reinforcements and frames, overlays, gold leaf, etc.). These prices do not include posts or support structures, which we sell separately. More detailed information on sign retail prices, along with their design features, are described on the Retail Prices & Design Options  page.

Wood signs have higher prices than High-Density-Urethane (HDU) sign, because the price of wood blanks is typically 2 to 3 times as much per square foot as HDU blanks. We strongly recommend use of HDU  for outdoor signs, especially if the wood will be painted, rather than stained. HDU signs look identical to wood signs when painted, cost half as much, last much longer, and require less maintenance. However, we do make painted outdoor Cedar signs for the National Park Service and for applications where high sign strength and robustness is required because of possible vandalism or misuse, because wood is stronger than HDU.

We make faux wood HDU signs that look very much like stained wood signs, including wood grain structure patterns. You can view these in Gallery 1A , Carved & Painted Faux Wood HDU Signs,  where  hundreds of examples of these beautiful and impressive signs are displayed.

We use real wood as described in this Gallery 3 primarily for high-end stained outdoor signs and indoor signs and  plaques.
