3 New Signs

Here are 3 new signs ordered and installed by our customers.

First up is this sign from Finders Keepers Crafting, created for a trade show booth.

The word bubble and individual letters were waterjet cut from 1/8 inch thick clear polycarbonate polycarbontate plastic and painted and installed by Finders Keepers. Using a tough plastic like polycarbonate makes their sign lightweight and durable for portability. Here's their crew after the installation:

Next up are the plaques on an outdoor monument for SK Design Group

The plaques were waterjet cut with Basic Finish applied from 1/8 inch thick aluminum and installed by the customer. Aluminum has good corrosion resistance for an outdoor application. Note that the standoffs give the sign some depth for extra visual impact.

Finaly, we have this logo for the Urban Trends Collection retail store. We waterjet cut the from 1/4 inch thick aluminum 6061 and applied Basic Finish.

The customer installed the lettering in several places around the store, as well as outside the entrance.
