Wooden Signs / Sandblasted Signs
We specialize in the design and fabrication of custom sandblasted redwood signs in many sizes and shapes. We’re one of the few experienced sign companies with the skills to paint wooden signs or apply gold leaf techniques to them. We simply enjoy laying our hands on the wood and creating a long-lasting beautiful piece!
While redwood is our wood of choice, we occasionally sandblast into cedar or high density foam.
After design work is complete, the manufacturing process begins by hand selection of the perfect pieces of kiln dried wood. For large sign projects, multiple planks of wood are joined using traditional wood-joining techniques to achieve the desired size. Rubber masking is applied to the wood surface to protect any areas where a blast is not desired.
Following sandblasting, signs are either stained or painted using industrial enamels. Both sides of the sign must be properly finished to avoid warping over time. The finished sign is beautiful, unique and long lasting.
Medium Density Overlay (MDO)
This is a type of exterior grade plywood that comes in ½” or ¾” thickness and can be made as either a one or two-sided sign. The wood is properly prepared against moisture before sign graphics are applied over the face.
Since we are a sign company, our inks are UV echo solvent and designed for long term exterior use. We also laminate the print for further longevity and scratch resistance. (We’re not the copy store guys here, bub!)
