Re: Several signs we did recently

Wow, awesome work!! What weight HDU do you typically use for your signs? What type of paints for outdoor use and do you seal after painting? Thanks for sharing. All these are 15#, mostly because of what my vendors sell and stock. We use Sherwin Williams DTM and Resilience as well as Nova Color. No ...

Re: Acrylic push thru letter sign/led lit

What is a "push through letter"? It's when you make acrylic letters that have a flange on the bottom that goes through an opaque sign substrate. Use the flange to mount to the back side. You can make the acrylic letters two ways. This job we took .5" acrylic and milled down .375" around all the let...

Re: Faux brick base for sign project

That's really cool. I'm curious about the choice of foam for this base rather than brick and concrete. Was there a significant cost difference? Was there a weight concern? Typically we farm out our Foam Monument signs and love them. This time our quote for this project seamed a little high and I kn...

Re: Faux brick base for sign project

This is our first project with a hard coat, we used an exterior hardcoat from Hot Wire Factory. It's pretty hard.
Our next time I am going to add some of their additives to make it even harder.
