Wooden signs are the best and one of the rare eco-friendly alternatives which allow you to share your thoughts and your message with other people. Custom made wooden signs are truly different. They allow you to choose every single aspect about them and to get a sign that is 100% as you want it to be. There are no limitations and everything is possible.
Dimensions and Shape
Usually, this kind of signs is made from bamboo or pine board. In both cases, the thickness may be between 0.3 up to 1 inch. Additional thicknesses are available, but they are rare. Dimensions can be as you wish. Some standard models have 48x48 inch dimensions, but it is possible to get much smaller ones, with 5x5 inches. Those made from pine board are bigger and heavier.
No matter how big a sign is, it can be hung with the help of hangers. These are small elements, mounted at the back of a sign. Smaller ones have just one or two hangers, but larger require more.
The shape is one of the extremely important aspects of each sign. It has to be specific in most cases and in some, it must be original. Custom made wooden signs are the most common in a rectangular shape, but we also have those in other shapes. A great possibility is the fact each user can choose a shape he prefers. Irregular shapes are harder to make, more expensive, but they are completely original.
Text and Graphics
Here, we have two alternatives. The first one is laser imprint, which is quicker, more affordable and more accurate. It is also a permanent choice. A great fact about this method is that all types of texts and graphics are possible. No matter how small or big they are, the laser will imprint them perfectly.
A second technique is drawing the text and graphics by hand. It is slower, more expensive and more delicate procedure, but it is more personal and more appealing to people. The paint, used for these signs is UV resistant. As such, it can withstand all temperatures and UV rays, obviously. The average lifespan is 2 years, but if sign isn’t exposed to the elements and the sun through the entire year, or it has a protective coat, the lifespan is much longer. It can even achieve 10 years.
In both cases, the text and symbols must be perfectly written, imprinted on a wooden sign. Errors and mistakes are not allowed here and they can ruin the entire sign!
A real pleasure is being able to get a wooden sign with the rustic effect. It means that a sign will look vintage, but it will be completely new. There is no point to buy vintage wooden signs because they can cost a lot, so they are a money-saving choice.
They are not more complicated to make than ordinary signs and they also come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Although, their colors are specific.
