Fetch Sign – Woof 2

Files are ready! – our HDU is on the MultiCam table and we’re ready to cut. We are going to end up with a 3″ sign panel once the two halves are glued together so we’ve planed our 2″ HDU down 1/2″ then cut the face. We’ll insert out steel tubing, glue the panels together and our panel is done. Now it’s on to “The Bone”.

Fetch Sign – Woof 1

It’s an exciting day here at KDF. We were asked by our good friends at Fetch Bar & Grill in Warwick, NY to update their sign based on a new logo that was just refreshed by our favorite designer, Nanette Hoey . After some quick sketches we designed the internal frame that will be made from welded 1″ steel tubing – this will be incredibly strong and make for a very simple installation. Our files are created in Enroute Pro and prepped for cutting

Wright Family Farm Sign

We were very excited about this sign. Our friends at the Wright Family Farm in Warwick, NY needed to replace an old sign on the main road in front of the farm. This farm has been around for over 100 years so we felt very privileged to be involved. So we stepped in to help with the task by creating a new design that would incorporate everything they had to offer. Nanette jumped on the design and came up with a wonderful sign design that everyone was extremely happy with.  Now we have to make it…

Sign Shop Sign

Our good friend Robin from Foley Sign Shop in Orangeburg, NY was in the market for an oversized dimensional sign at her great new location. We were happy to work with her on it and had a little fun with her great logo. The bed on our Multicam 3000 is 4’x8′ – the sign will be 5’x8′ so we are going to have to piece it together. We are cutting the Palette out of 2″ 15# Precision Board HDU and the letters out of 1.5″ 30# Precision Board HDU. To lighten the sign we hog out some material. Once We’ve assembled the palette we cut the letters and other elements.

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.

Speeds and Feeds

One of the more frequent inquiries we receive at Coastal Enterprises involves questions about machining Precision Board Plus HDU. For those that are experienced in working with the product, we typically hear things like, “this stuff cuts like butter” ,“my cutters last longer”, “I can set my CNC to a higher feed rate” or our favorite,..

I’ll take a Wrap and a Giant Hot Dog Please

This project allowed us to meld two of our skills, vehicle wraps and 3D Sign Making,  into one “unique” looking vehicle.  Our client Callahan’s Hot Dogs in Norwood was in need of a new vehicle wrap to match their now famous Hot Dog Truck. So Nanette dove into the design then Dan called and asked… “Can you build a giant hot dog for the top of the van?”. Of course I said yes This is how we did it.

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. The clients logo needed some tweaking and unfortunately wouldn’t work on the sign.  We started by taking the logo and reformatting it to match the “feel” of the store and to better represent what you would see inside.
