Dimensional signs are our bread and butter. Rather than strictly using paint and/or decals on a flat medium, we create signage with..... well, dimension. While traditionally our signs are made from various wood species, synthetics (plastics, foam) and soft metals (aluminum, brass) are also in our bag of tricks.
The most basic form of dimensional sign uses a technique called V-carving. In combination with our CNC Router Table, V-carving uses a V shaped router bit to create pockets in the sign medium in the shape of letters and images. These pockets are usually painted to provide contrast to the base material. Relatively simple and inexpensive to create, these signs can be both beautiful and functional.
Another form of sign we create uses a technique called Pocketing. Pocketing is the process of removing waste material to create images and lettering that stand proud of the sign surface. Often used in conjunction with V-carving, this type of sign provides more dimensional 'pop'.
Dimensional signs are not just limited to the above techniques. Sign faces and backgrounds can be textured, patterns can be created using Inlays, features such as 3D Relief can be incorporated, provisions can be made for LED lighting, plaques with personalized Engraving can be attached, the options and combinations are only limited by imagination.
