Custom Shape Wooden Hand Painted Sign Maker in NJ

While Blue Dot Signs can create and fabricate custom signs in almost any size, shape, and design, there is nothing quite like a hand painted sign. There is something unique, special, and “real” about custom hand painted shop signs and other painted signage that almost no other displays can offer, simply because no one else will paint that sign exactly the same.

Blue Dot Signs may be a sign printing company, but we also have genuine artists available – capable of providing hand painted custom signage that match the personality of your business. Not only can we hand paint on nearly any material, including metal and glass, but we are also one of the few companies capable of creating custom hand painted wood signs.

Custom Hand Painted Signs NJ

Most signs are designed to stand out with bright colors, lights, a large size, and other eye-catching factors. But a hand painted sign stands out because it is one of a kind. The custom artistry of each sign, no matter what it is made of and where it is used, makes for an impactful sign that both captures the attention of your customers and gives your business a style of its own.

Custom Signs Painted by Hand in NJ from Blue Dot Signs

Of our hundreds of different sign types, almost any can be hand painted. However, the most common choices of a custom painted sign are:

  • Hand Painted Wooden Signs
  • Hand Painted Posters
  • Hand Painted Carved Signs
  • Hand Painted Metal Signs

To create your hand painted sign, we first cut the base material to the size and shape you need. This part is usually done by inputting the design into our state of the art CNC router, which automates the cutting process to produce an exact and clean edge. A CNC router makes it possible to cut even intricate, decorative shapes in wood, metal, and more.

The sign is then hand painted by our in house artisans. We use paints that are weather and UV-resistant so that they will maintain their look either indoors or outdoors. Signs can then be sealed with a clear coat lacquer to help protect the wood and paint from wear when used outside.

Since hand painting refers to the method of adding graphics to your sign rather than the type of sign, we can create a sign that fits into your space. This includes:

  • Hanging Wooden Signs
  • Blade Signs
  • Wall Mounted Signs
  • A-Frame Signs
  • Menu Boards and More

There are dozens of options for designing your hand painted sign, and many go beyond simply choosing the graphic. Because we have both artisans and expert designers of staff, we can help you create a sign with elements that work together and stand out in your chosen location.

Benefits of a Unique Hand Painted Sign

At Blue Dot Signs, we believe that each sign we create is meant to send a message to those that view it. Sometimes the message is simple, such as “this is the floor number you are on” or “this is the product we are trying to market.”

But much more is said with hand painted signs, which have qualities that very few other signs are able to create. When people see a custom sign, they see:

  • Experience - Even a new sign gives the impression that you know what you’re doing because you have a sign that has vision, and required a true artist to create.
  • Unique/Special - The fact that each sign is hand-painted, and that no two signs can be exactly alike, is not something that is lost on those that view it. Your customers know and understand what hand-painted means in terms of its quality and how special it is. They see it each time they look.
  • Art - Art captures people’s attention. Whenever we create any sign here in New Jersey, we create it to get noticed, and we have graphic designers available that can make sure that the design is meant to draw the eyes. But hand-painted signs do that naturally, simply because viewers can sense the artistry that is necessary for each brushstroke.

Our hand-painted signs in NJ here at Blue Dot Signs are simply some of the best available, with a level of quality and detail that few other New Jersey sign companies can offer. And because we have graphic artists available, you do not even need to design the sign yourself. Our custom sign painters can take your ideas and turn them into a reality if you need us to, or paint your own design in vibrant colors.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Are Your Signs REALLY Hand Painted?

    Yes. We have some excellent artists available that create designs that match your expectations, using long lasting paint that is best used for the material you choose and the location that it is going to be placed.

  • How Do I Design a Hand Painted Sign?

    The answer depends on the type of sign and what you need. If you don’t have a design in mind, our designers can plan it out for you. If you want, you can also design a sign in digital form and we’ll hand paint it according to the look of your idea. Let us know what you need, and we are here to help.

  • How Long Does it Take a Hand Painted Sign to Get Made?

    This is a tough question to answer, because there are hand painted signs with numerous details as large as a car, and hand painted signs that are smaller, limited to a typeface and used outside of bed and breakfasts. If timing is an issue, it is usually a good idea to contact us first for a timeframe.

  • Why Should I Choose Hand Painted Over a Custom Print?

    There is something special about a hand painted sign that custom prints cannot provide. Customers can sense that the sign is valuable and one-of-a-kind. The human component – being able to see the paint and the strokes – also impresses potential customers. We print all types of signs, but there is definitely something unique about hand painted signs that people love.

  • Can I use a hand painted sign outdoors?

    As long as it’s made from the right material and has the proper protective coating, hand painted signs are durable enough to use outdoors. It may also need future touch ups or reapplications of a protective coat to keep the sign looking fresh.

  • What is the cost of a hand painted sign?

    Each sign is crafted by hand and is as much a piece of art as it is a sign. This personalized attention can result in higher prices than other signs that require little more than printing a graphic on the desired material, but business owners usually find the results well worth it. When you give us a call to share your design ideas, we can provide a quote.

  • How do I install my sign?

    This will depend on the type of sign. Many hand painted signs are smaller and can be easily mounted or hung with limited handyman experience. Your sign will include installation instructions when you receive it. Alternatively, we also offer installation services to help you get your sign in the right place.

  • Can you make a hand painted chalkboard sign?

    We can create both a permanently painted sign in a chalkboard style, or have our artisans create chalkboard art that can be changed out as needed. Both options are available.

  • What areas do you serve?

    We are based in the New Jersey-NYC area, and our installation and restoration services are centered there, although it is possible to ship signs outside of our service area. Please give us a call so we can discuss your needs and options.
