Hand Painted House Signs & Custom Painted Plaques

Very few signs look so attractive as a hand crafted and hand painted sign; either for your business, house, cabin or vacation home. The problem is that with the oxydizing qualities of the sun, even with several clear coats, the hand painted qualities will start to deteriorate and unfortunately so will the wood.

There is an answer to this problem which I discuss lower down the page.

These hand painted signs cover many different types of sign from wooden hand lettered signs to hang in or around your home to commissioned pictures of farms and vacation homes. There is even a hand painted sign picturing the historical house it anounces.

We also design and create hand painted business signs.

This page includes information relating to hand painted wood signs, and hand painted HDU signs, as well as custom painted signs on many different substrates.

Often this type of sign is refered to as country signs, and welcome signs tend to be made from materials that appear to be natural. Today we have the advantage of having materials to hand that look and feel exactly like wood but will withstand the weather and last for a very long time.

Lets think about our Planet for a moment.

Look at the picture to the left, click on it if you like to enlarge it, the wood grain apears to be totally authentic because the mold we create emulates the original to a microscopic degree. What that means to you is no one will know that your sign is not made of wood, even if they pull out a magnifying glass.

Any real hand painted wooden signs worth a fig will not be made out of a renewable wooden resource; ie: pine. If the wood grows very fast it will rot just as quickly, so by definition any hand painted wooden sign should be made from old growth wood which we are losing too fast at present.

Ok, we understand there is a certain style associated with owning a real wooden sign, but please remember, every time we make a hand painted sign, or any other sign that doesn't use real wood we are helping to save our planet.

And of course if its a hand painted sign on real wood you want, then that's what we shall make for you.

Featured Sign of the Month

Uwharrie Point Country Club Main Entrance

This PVC Monument Sign is approx 8ft high by 14ft. wide and was originally made from Redwood. After approx 25 years it had rotted. The board of the residents association were very keen to keep the original appearance exactly the same as the original but they wanted it to be from a material that wouldn't rot.  We had access to  the original architects drawings, so we set about converting the plans into a computer file engineered to be made from PVC and aluminum but to look exactly like the original. Every piece of coving and molding was made in house, and then assembled into three pieces which were transported to the site where it was assembled. The whole monument sign was painted with six coats of a high quality Benjamin Moore latex paint ( it lasts longer on PVC than paints costing over $100 .00/gall more. Then apart from the center panel all of the monument was painted once more by brush and as it was drying the brushes were dragged carefully along the length of each section creating a wood grain effect; thus removing any appearance of the sign looking plastic.
