Adding a little character to a sign

When working on larger projects it’s the little details that really make the difference for both the client and for us! Our current project is no different. We are creating a “themed” environment for the Fox Island Creamery & Café in Hewitt, NJ.  We’ve  created a nice little storyline and have developed some characters which should make the experience fun for both the kids and parents. This sign is for a little beaver character that we created and his boat company. The Chubby Beaver Boat Building Co.

bfree Sign: A Dimensional Sign of Metal and Wood (or maybe not)

I am lucky enough to live in the great town of Warwick, NY – we have wonderful restaurants and shops and its a destination for many people on weekend getaways. There is a new trendy shop opening, bfree  and we were lucky enough to be called to help with her “new” look.

Oh how we love our friends at Jura ! Not only are they wonderful people but they make the greatest coffee makers on the planet!

We are making it out of 1 piece of 15# Precision Board HDU which is 2″ thick. We remove excess material from the back to reduce the weight.
