An extremely popular option for custom signs and what we specialize in is laser cut metal. These signs can be cut from a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel, and aluminum or painted in a wide array of powder coat colors to match your color palette or style. The laser cutting process allows for intricate details and precise cuts, making it possible to create a wide range of designs.
One use for custom custom laser cut metal signs is to display a business’s name or logo on the storefront or inside their office building. This adds a professional touch and and helps to establish your brand. Although the workplace is an extremely common and functional space for custom signs, decorating in and outside the home can really elevate your space. Some of the most common residential applications are to laser cut a custom design, your last name, or help your home stand out with a custom address plate.
Our most popular sign style we offer is a laser cut panel mounted onto a wooden sign back. The added depth of our reclaimed wood backs is the most common way to dress up your home or office and is what we feature in our Fargo, ND showroom. While the wood back really changes the look of the sign, you can take it one step further by changing the wood species, staining the sign back, or just lightly sanding the natural wood, you can add great color contrasts with the painted or powder coated steel panel and wooden sign backs.
Another sign style is laser etching or burning the design into the wood instead of laser cutting the metal. This offers a completely different style to the more industrial look of the laser cut steel panel. However, there are far more limitations to the laser etching such as sign size and color control of the burnt area. Because of these variations and restrictions laser etching isn’t a style that we typically offer at Grain Designs. Combining these two styles of laser etching along with the mounted steel panel creates a beautiful contrast between the two materials and adds depth to the sign.
Wood and metal signs are versatile and can be used in a variety of settings. They can be used to display a company’s name or logo on the storefront, to add a personal touch to your home, or to create a unique piece of wall art for your office or living space.
In addition to custom wood and metal signs for homes and storefronts, these materials can also be used to create unique office signs. Laser cut metal signs can be used to label building entrances, conference rooms or to display the names of employees on their office doors. Wood and metal signs can be used to create directional signs or to display the company’s mission statement in the lobby.
Custom wood and metal signs are a great way to add personality and character to any space. Whether you are looking to create a sign for your home, office, man cave, or storefront, there are endless design possibilities with these materials.
