Sandblasted Redwood Signs and Wood Signs
When you are looking for textured or three-dimensional signs redwood can't be beaten. It has a natural elegance and appeal. Sandblasting brings out the dramatic beauty of the grain and gives the sign a carved look.
The Natural Beauty of Redwood
Redwood lends itself to unique shapes - ovals are popular as well as arched tops - with custom cut corners and edges you can get nearly any shape you can imagine. You can even have your sign enhanced with gold leaf for a truly luxurious look. Since each piece of wood blasts differently, every redwood sign is completely unique.
One of the World's Most Durable Woods.
Redwood is less likely to warp, split or cup than other wood sign option. Natural resistance to moisture, decay and insect damage has made it the premier choice for both indoor and outdoor signs. With a minimum amount of maintenance, your new redwood sign will last a lifetime. Redwood is a very strong sign surface that is rarely affected by the wind. TheSignChef uses only select grade, clear heart redwood. We offer 1.5" and 3" finished dimension redwood, and our standard blast depths are approximately 1/4" to 3/8".
The Creation Process begins using Grade A cedar planks that are double kiln dried, which better protects the sign from bowing. They are then bonded together with biscuits, dowels, and high-grade, weather resistant epoxy. Next, the wood is cut to shape and the sign blank is covered with a rubber mask cut from the digital design. Sections of the sign that are going to be sandblasted have the mask removed, leaving the raised areas protected. The design is then sandblasted into the wood, leaving a natural, beautiful wood pattern. Signs are then primed, hand-sanded, and primed again as many times as it takes to ensure that the sign is properly sealed against weather elements. Finally, the primed, sandblasted sign is hand-painted to match your design.
