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