Sandblasted or Routed Sign (3D)

A sign represents your image. Image is everything in business. Although sandblasted signs are more expensive than 'quick sign' vinyl sticker style sign solutions, a sandblasted sign will last for decades. A typical vinyl sign has an exterior life expectancy of less than 5 years.

Whether you are looking for a residential entrance sign, development directional signs, business park tenant signs, lobby or reception displays, church reader boards or golf course signage, we can provide a solution that will exceed your expectations and leave a lasting impression.


Popular Substrates

Cedar - Cedar is a great sign building material because of its resistance to bugs and rot. Cedar is easily sandblasted and the resulting signs can last many years. The downside is that cedar is a natural product and no matter how much care is used in the fabrication of the cedar sign the wood is still (eventually) subject to decay. Cedar is also becoming harder to come by.

HDU (High Density Urethane) - HDU is the most popular choice of substrate for sandblasted signs today and it's the material we use for the majority of our signs. It is impervious to insects and rot and unaffected by temperature changes. Unlike cedar, HDU is readily available, is stable, carves easily, and paints beautifully. It also looks just like wood when painted.

ColorCore (High Density Polyethylene)  Colorcore is a co-extruded plastic with a thin cap layer of one color and a core of another color. By  routing or engraving  through the cap layer, we expose the core color, therefore eliminating the need to paint the sign. The material is UV stabilized so it will not fade, crack or rot; it is more durable than any wood or metal; it is chemically resistant and virtually graffiti proof. It is made with high impact resistant polymer to handle more buse than conventional sign materials and it's material cost is less than HDU or Cedar. These signs are ideal for extreme climate conditions such as marinas, parks because of their durability. But their clean appearance, low cost and maintenance free properties make them the obvious choice for playgrounds, subdivisions, apartment complexes, parking lots, golf courses and businesses as well.
