“If I could give more than five (5) stars, I would! My experience with Signs for San Diego was nothing less than exceptional from start to finish. As a Project Manager for one of Gable’s largest clients, I expect our vendors to deliver high-quality product and/or services.”
We got both of our restaurant signs from them, and we couldn’t be happier! They were affordable, had incredible customer service, and the quality of their product matches their customer service! They even took care of some of our street light issues at no additional charge since they were already on-site with the lift!
They have a new customer for life!
North County San Diego is home to a mission, several old town main streets, revitalized historic Carlsbad, a quickly emerging renaissance in Oceanside and Vista.
These area are also seeing new companies with old world crafts appearing, notable the craft brewery market. These areas are instrumental in balancing the history of the city with its overwhelmingly modern rebirth. One way of achieving this hybrid balancing act is with the help of exterior signs. Signs in Carlsbad’s business community have rediscovered the charm and old world feel of sandblasted Signs. Sandblasting creates excellent signs that contain just enough old-world feel to represent the best of today and yesterday
It starts with wood, It comes from a time with no aluminum body and no Acrylic, no polycarbonate that is so common in modern channel letter or lightbox cabinet signs. It starts with a wooden board and a mask.
The board is subjected to a stream of sand that wears the wood down everywhere there is no mask. The mask is removed and the sealing and painting start. The finished sign is a three-dimensional look that is attractive and visually striking.
How do we get there? It is a labor intensive process. Redwood, Cedar and a High Density Urethan are the base materials.
This is shaped into a blank you prefer. Ovals, rectangles are common, but other shapes are very possible and appealing. Because this is generally wood there are size and thickness limitations the craftsman has worked around for centuries. These remain today – most of these signs are on the small side.
Your message, style and font are cut from a rubber mash. When the stream of sand hits the rubber, it bounces off.
When that same stream hits wood, it knocks off a little tiny chuck of wood. The removal is not exact, and fine features like sharp pointed lines, delicate details and very small features are limited. Sand Blasted signs tend to be big, bold and block like. It is the technique used that demands this.
After the blasting is complete, the wood is a little dirty and the mash is generally falling apart.
The mash is removed and the piece cleaned. Then a sealer coat of paint is applied. This is the easy paint layer. The next layers are hand painted. Each letter, boarder or other feature is carefully brush painted without mask. The amount of labor, the cost of the raw materials (wood and paint) and the time makes these signs rather special.
Standing out from your competitor is crucial for the success in any business.
