From Your Design

When creating artwork for a carved sign, there are a few guidelines to follow.  Please see below for details explaining what we need to ensure production goes smoothly.

Try to think in Black & White.   For a carved sign, whether sandblasted or V-groove routed, some areas will be raised, and some will be recessed. You must picture your design in these terms and think about how shapes will be separated from each other.

We need vector or line art to be emailed to us in EPS, Adobe Illustrator (AI), or FlexiSign format, although PDF or JPG files are fine for quoting purposes.  All fonts used in your layout must be converted to outlines/curves.

We recommend emailing us a layout for a quote, or for help with how to make a design work as a carved project.

Finishing signs in your shop will help us give you the fastest turnaround time.  If you have questions about how we finish our signs, we can help and provide information on our methods.  If you'd rather we finish them and they arrive ready to install, we understand that too.  All we need are the colour specifications.
