The No-Limits HDU: Dimensional Signs of Any Size

Precision Board: Widest Variety of Sheet Sizes for Dimensional Signs

For signage professionals, no two projects are ever exactly the same. Every sign or display requires its own unique dimensions, different surface finishes, and special considerations that need attention. Since projects can vary so significantly, the worst thing for a skilled sign maker is to be held back by their materials. Many popular HDU sign boards are only available in a small range of sheet sizes, thicknesses, and densities. This forces sign makers to either alter their design to account for the limited substrate options, or cut what they need from a larger sheet, wasting a large amount of expensive material. No more! It’s time to stop tip-toeing around the capabilities of other manufacturers. It’s time to get exactly what you need for your dimensional signs with Precision Board Plus!

Business Signs by Gibbs Graphics


Gibbs Graphics cracks the code for memorable HDU business signs

Gibbs Graphics is a full-service marketing team based out of Leavenworth, Washington. With a talented team of artists and designers on their roster, they can tackle the marketing needs of a company from top to bottom. This includes designing and building some very cool dimensional business signs with Precision Board HDU! Check out some of their weatherproof creations from last winter.

This time around, the job was to fabricate a sign for the Nutcracker Museum in Leavenworth, something fun and engaging to draw curious patrons from off the street. They designed a friendly-looking Bavarian nutcracker figure (affectionately nicknamed Karl) to hang above the heads of passersby. The nutcracker and its faux-wood mounting bracket would be made from Precision Board PBLT-18, then attached to steel frames for additional support.


The initial shapes for Karl the Nutcracker, the mounting bracket, and a secondary sign were carved on the shop’s AXYZ CNC router. The Gibbs Graphics crew routed out a front and back face for the nutcracker and the mounting brackets, then used hand tools for the detail carving. Both high-tech CNC routers and basic hand carving tools are equally effective on Precision Board, giving sign makers a lot of freedom in their tool selection. 


Next, the team primed their creations with our FSC-88 WB Primer. For painting, they used a bright color palette for Karl the Nutcracker and a faux-wood stain for the mounting bracket. You can see that the mounting bracket now closely resembles a long-handled nutcracker, right down to the acorn between the teeth! It’s this high level of detail work that really sets the piece apart and gives it personality.


The final step was to mount the two signs over the Nutcracker Museum itself. The two pieces provide some great atmosphere for the museum, and will definitely generate a lot of foot traffic. Another job well done by Gibbs Graphics! Be sure to check out their website for more of their handcrafted designs.
