Many types of signs in Production at Typestries this morning!

By Typestries, November 2, 2006

The shop is brimming with many different types of sign projects. We’re actually really versatile when it comes to signmaking. We have the capability in house to produce all types of signs and visual identity products. Short run decals, specialty truck and vehicle lettering, custom static cling, window posters, and our favorite, carved, gold-leaf prismatic cut out letters.

These are the first of a few signs that have been ordered as holiday gifts. We’ve got an excellent display of carved house signs that make great gifts in our Ship Bottom store, and this year I’m adding a twist to the holiday gift signs that should make a carved house sign a gift anyone can enjoy. Most of our custom house signs start in the $300 price range. This year we’ll be offering a $95 holiday gift sign. I wanted to make a nice sign at a price point appropriate for all gift giving opportunities. Like their more expensive counterparts they’ll have gold leaf, be carved, and will be designed to provide many years of enjoyment. If you know of someone looking for a unique gift or are looking for a gift yourself, please pass along the details of our special offer. Email me if you need details or to place an order, or you can download a PDF info sheet here. .

Prismatic letters in the production process. They’re for Debbie Whitcraft’s Museum of New Jersey Maritime History in Beach Haven. When complete, they’ll be bright, shiny gold leaf letters, and for a twist, will mount on a curved wall. Once we get the leaf on these, I’ll post a few more photos detailing the extensive finishing process we go through on this type of work.

A portion of the graphics required for the M & L Marine service truck. After printing, we will cut these in a special plotter with an electronic eye that aligns the cut to the print.

Admitted weakness at Typestries: Keeping brushes clean. As a kid when I helped my Dad paint, he trained me better than this!
