Sandblasted, Routed, V-groove or Wood Signs Make You Look Fantastic!
Did you know that we can turn high density urethane into a breathtakingly beautiful sign? Did you also know that we can use a process called sandblasting on this material as well as on different types of lumber for great results? Choosing these kinds of markers for your lobby or for exterior usage is a growing trend that appeals particularly to niches associated with old-fashioned products, artistic services or those that are located in historic downtown areas where the use of building markers is tightly regulated.
Who Commissions Sandblasted Signs?
When you need a sign with character, sandblasted markers are the products of choice. Whether you operate a whimsical shop in a town square setting or operate an upscale golf course community, this signage choice meets your needs. You frequently see examples of these markers hanging from crossbeams in areas where the ambiance is purposefully set to create an old-fashioned shopping appeal.
What are the Options?
- Sandblasted signs We start with a sign blank that is masked off for a three-dimensional look. The mask contains the information that needs to show. Next, we expose the sign to pressurized air that eats away at the material. As the background recedes from the protected areas, the 3-D image becomes visible. After painting and sealing the surface, it turns into a sign that will last for years to come.
- Routed markers What happens when you want the effect to be reversed? If you would prefer to have the signage blank stand out while the company’s name and logo is carved into the material, we would use the v-groove routing process. Reversing the technique is easy to do and results in a marker that pops because of the color choices as well as the dimensional look of the information.
- Embossed appearance Do you like the look of the sandblasted as well as the routed marker? Is it difficult to decide? If so, why not simply choose an embossed appearance? The CNC carving process allows us to add definition to the backdrop while having a raised foreground. In effect, all major parts are raised, much like you would expect from an embossed image.
