Hondorosa Ranch - Hondo, TX
In 1997 when we bought our land, my husband designed a sign made from wood for our front gate. It lasted 19 years. Sadly my husband passed away in 2006. When my children and I were discussing replacing the sign, we all wanted to keep the design that Tommy had made. I found Torchcraft online and sent a picture to Jerry Kirby to see if he could copy the sentimental design in metal. Jerry sent back drawings, we emailed and talked on the phone and I felt very comfortable getting him to make our sign. He sent pictures of progress as he went along, then one day it was finished! I could not be more pleased with the finished product. Jerry does excellent work and I believe he could do about anything! He is a true artist. He also is very easy to work with and one extra bonus when the work is done, you will feel you have a new friend! Thanks a million, Jerry!
The Torchcraft Difference....
Torchcraft cuts most outdoor signs from 3/16-inch (7 gauge) new plate steel. Indoor signs may be cut from 1/8-inch steel. It's easy to see from the photo the difference in thickness of Torchcraft steel vs the "other guys". Most other artist cut from a flimsy 14 gauge steel such as the one pictured above that I picked up from a local art show. When you think about your metal sign, do you want one as thick as a paper clip or as thick as 4 dimes? Thats an 82% difference.
