“This is an example of how we sometimes do a flat sign with a full-color laminated print with dimensional effect applied to lettering,” says Sandy.

“This is high density urethane board over an Extira exterior panel,” says Sandy, “which gives us something solid to attach hardware to. The HDU graphics fit into routed indents for easier painting and clean edges when assembled. We also fabricated a custom welded bracket this sign hangs on.”

Early in our 30-year history, we decided to be a one-stop shop with a diverse list of products and services that we could provide in-house, including silk screen graphics and embroidery. We live in a rural community and it helps to do multiple products.

While dimensional signs are our favorite, we do flat signs, monument signs, sandblasted cedar signs, digital printing and vehicles. We screen print flat signs and 3D objects (like electrical enclosures) as well as apparel. We offer embroidered apparel, business cards and stationery, brochures, postcards, nametags and promotional products of all kinds. We have jokingly told customers, “If we don’t do it, you don’t need it!”
