The Frugal Pilgrim

The_Frugal_Pilgram

A customer came to me with an idea for her brother.  He was 70 years old and had always wanted to do a 500 mile hike across Spain.  He made it, and she brought me a picture of him on the trail.  I was able to pull a silhouette of him from the pic and create this metal sign to last a life time.

Here is a sign that I did for a customer in which I didn't know the full story behind the name.  Below is from my customer after the metal sign was installed.

 

"Hi Jerry,

Sorry for the delay in getting back with you.  Crazy week or so.  I had the sign installed last Thursday in time for our housewarming party on Saturday.   Not only was my wife blown away by how amazing it looks (she was moved to tears), we also received a lot of compliments on how cool it is from our friends at the party..........

3D Rockin Armadillo

Rockin_Armadillo-1 Rockin Armadillo

I don't usually tackle these kinds of projects but a previous customer from the Rockin Armadillo Ranch asked me if I could make a 3D Armadillo like his logo for his ranch.  First I framed out the basic shape with square tubing, then added the exterior pieces made up of 1/8" and 3/16" thick plate.  Finally it was sand blasted and powder coated.   I sure got a lot of looks while pulling this down the road.....

I think I made this sign over 20 years ago.  My customer brought it back to me recently and asked if I could clean it up with a fresh paint job.  What I like to call a "liquid overhaul".

Our Lady Guadalupe Catholic

Our_Lady_Guadalupe_Catholic_Poteet_Texas

This lettering is for a Catholic Church just a few miles away in Poteet, TX. I always love the black metal contrasting against the white limestone. 

A side note, when mounting letters like this you, need to be cautious of how the shadows between the metal letters and white rock might affect your ability to read the letters at a distance. The best way to fix this is mount the letters close to the rock or whatever your mounting them to so that a shadow can't get behind the letters very easily.  Looks like the installer did a good job on this install.
