Boyle_Logo1_4 Family Logo / Brand Hanging Metal Sign

This family logo is 36" x 36" and cut from a heavy 1/4" thick steel.  The connection between the "B" and the circle is the weak point in the design so we elected to use a thicker than normal steel for provide a more rigid design.  Note, normally 3/16" thick steel is used.

Our customer needed some help finishing up his entrance.  All pieces were cut from 3/16" plate, blasted and powder coated.  The arrowheads connecting the top horizontal beam to the uprights was a nice touch.  They did a great job with this project.  I'm glad that we could help out with the metal work. 

Shenkir Ranch

Sunrise Village wanted some rustic / rusty signs to install at their beautiful entrance to their subdivision.  While rust color powder coat looks beautiful, nothing looks as real as natural rust patina.  Each sign is cut from corten steel, which will only rust on the surface. These signs were sandblasted for a quick rust patina. They did a great job with this entrance and I'm glad to play a part in the build.

The Durando Ranch is in the North Fort Myers Florida area.  Most of the signs we do end up with a black powder coat.  Every now and then we'll do a white powder coat and it always looks great and stands out well. It's always important to consider the background and try to envision how visible the sign will be against the contrasting background colors.
