What Are Carved Signs?

Carved signs are extra durable, distinctively designed signs that can be incorporated into almost any form you need. They can be used for everything from hanging signs indicating a business’s location to foot traffic to larger and more decorative storefront signs, to smaller directional and informational signs along pathways or in office buildings, and so much more. They can be made from natural and synthetic materials, depending on specific needs. Natural materials tend to lend the sign more character and are chosen often for their more handmade-style visual appeal. Synthetic materials are easier to carve into the exact shape or look wanted and tend to be more resilient. Whatever material they’re made from, however, carved signs draw people in with their unique look and indication that the owner cares about the details and impression they give potential customers. They serve not only as sources of information, but as a reflection of the care someone has for each aspect of their business, organization, or event.

What Features Do Carved Signs Have?

There is a wide array of customization options for carved signs available, from size, to color, to carved lettering and graphics, and more. We also offer many options for size, shape, and display method. We’ve created wooden engraved signs that are large, small, in between, in the shape of logos, standard rectangles and circles, and more. Ways of displaying them vary, according to the best ways to mount different kinds of signs, but we have provided sign posts, wall mountings, hanging from a support or pole, and many others. Some of the most popular choices include:
