We make custom carved 2.5-D, 3-D and engraved dimensional signs and plaques. These are fabricated from High-Density-Urethane (HDU) wood composite; extremely tough engraved High-density Color-Core Polyethelene (HDPE); wood (cedar, redwood, mahogany, oak, maple, cherry; metal-coated HDU (brass, bronze, copper, silver-nickel, stainless steel, and aluminum; and gold- and silver-leaf gilded HDU.

Text, numbers, logos, art and borders can be higher than the background or engraved (carved into it), or both. Styles range from the formal to elegant to contemporary to rustic. All of our HDU signs are made of heavy-duty  20 lb/ft3 High-Density-Urethane and have a protective coating to extend lifetime and ruggedness. Our extremely tough and durable HDPE signs are ideal for parks, playgrounds and other public facilities where wear-and-tear or graffiti could be a problem. These dimensional signs will last as long as cast aluminum.

We can make a single sign to match existing signs, or a complete set of signs for a complex which has the same style, color scheme and logo for all signs. We will design custom signs for you at no cost. We also make wood, aluminum and wrought iron posts, finials, scroll brackets, and sign frames. Please reference the ID number (e.g. F15009) if you want your sign to be similar to one or more signs shown in the Galleries. If you can't find signs or plaque designs you want in this Gallery, we will design them for you at no extra charge.  We will work with you to design and build the exact custom signs or plaques you want.

Entrance Sign for the City of Coos Bay, Oregon

We made two of these very large (12 ft high) entrance signs for the City of Coos Bay, Oregon. They were carved in 3-D relief from 20 lb/ft3 High-Density-Urethane (HDU). The sign was prime coated and painted with Matthews and 1-Shot sign enamels, using an airbrush and artist brush. The entire sign was then coated with 2 coats of long-lasting Matthews polyurethane acrylic clear. This plaque will last over a decade in the marine climate without the paint fading.
