Carved Sign Customization and Options

Carved signs can be customizable. We use a state of the art CNC router for most of our carved signs, which delivers crisp shapes into several different types of material. Currently, we are able to carve and engrave:

  • Inns
  • Churches
  • Spas
  • Town/Village Entrances
  • Antique Stores
  • Tattoo Parlors
  • Yoga Studios, Restaurants, and More

For wood signs, especially, we will also use woods that are weather resistant given that these signs are primarily for outdoor/external use.

We also have HDU available. High-density urethane (HDU) is a synthetically engineered material that can be carved with even more precision than cedar or oak, while still providing that same custom appeal. HDU is even more resistant to rain and sunlight, compared with wooden signs that need to be weather treated from time to time.

Customization options for these signs are almost unlimited, in the sense that the CNC router is able to create thin cuts even in close proximity without necessarily damaging the material – although this may not be ideal for some types of wood and plastic. We have additional customization available, such as gold leaf and sandblasted signs.

Benefits of Carved Signs

Carved signs are a classic form of signage that has roots that extend well into history. These signs were used by small towns all over the United States, carved or engraved almost always into wood to provide the city and stores with an easily visible street sign.

Today’s carved signs are even better, as the machinery that we use makes it possible to carve on more materials and create finer, more perfect cuts. The benefits of these types of signs include:

Classic Appearance

These signs can be perfectly given an “older” look, which is used by antique stores, churches, and cities due to the association with being quaint. But even the more modern carved signs have a classic appearance recognized by most people that see it.

Long Lasting

These types of signs, in any material, are made for the outdoors. They resist almost all weather and are easy to clean and maintain as needed. They are also durable in a general sense, given their thickness and the materials involved (like HDU).


Using a CNC router, these signs can be cut to very specific shapes without any loss of quality. You can cut to shape logos, create depth, and give each one its own colors and character.

Carved signs have been popular for hundreds of years, and even though some of them have modernized they remain popular today.
