Home / Outdoor Signs / Carved Signs
At Signs NYC, we offer carved signs made of natural wood or high-density urethane (HDU), dense and durable materials that can keep your carved sign looking great for years to come. They are designed to be displayed outdoors and are given further protection against the elements with careful weather treatment.
If you’re considering an NYC carved sign for your business, property, or organization, we can provide it for you. No matter what kind of carved sign you need – storefront, blade, hanging, directory, or something else – we can custom make it to your specifications.
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.
WHERE DO YOU SEE THESE Carved Signs?
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:
Sandblasting can accentuate the wood grain of your natural wood sign or add texture to the background of your HDU sign.
If you want to add some extra color to your sign, we offer both hand and machine painting. If you need us to use a specific color to match a logo or company theme, we can do that as well.
A touch of gold on your sign adds sophistication and a sense of high-end glamor to it and your business. Often added to lettering, it can also be applied to simple graphics, logos, and anything else you include in your design.
Add a visually arresting, dimensional quality to your sign with letters that stand apart from the rest of the sign. This not only elevates the overall design, it makes it easier to read, and informs passersby and potential customers of your location from a greater distance.
Signs can be made from all kinds of materials, making them one of the most customizable and distinctive looking signs you can use in your building or other place of business. All that needs to occur is that the sign is placed off of the wall in some way.
