Custom Home Sign

Seeing that we make custom signs that are built to amaze – it was only fitting that we make one up for my house. Now our Graphic Designer,Nanette, has the challenge to come up with a real cool design that will go well with the rustic surrounding of my property. I love the “steam punk” look so I asked that it had that feel. And here we go.

This is the vector file of the design.design

So from here I take the file into Enroute Pro and begin making the 2D image 3D. I then put some nice textures on it to look like hammered copper and I added the rivets.

Once we settled on the final look we start cutting. – this is a double sided sign so we’ll cut two and mount them back to back.

Once cut the two signs are ready for priming. Then the fun begins making this foam sign look like old hammered copper.

All painted and ready for assembly – Brian starts by building the frame that will hold the sign. Here is Brian doing a little welding in the shop. (Cool Mask). weld
