Custom Logo Sign

Oh how we love our friends at Jura ! Not only are they wonderful people but they make the greatest coffee makers on the planet! As they are building out their new headquarters they requested KDF to fabricate a large logo for the reception area.This logo is approximately 4’x8′. 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.

What’s the Life of your Sign?

We all know Mark Roberts at InterSign Group is an avid Precision Board user, but he also works with other materials. In the June issue of Sign Builder Illustrated, he wrote an article on the process of restoring redwood signs (p16). The great thing about Precision Board HDU is that it doesn’t require the maintenance of wood and has an indefinite life span. Since it’s..

A Trip to the Police Station!

Don’t get the wrong idea. KDF is honored to have been chosen by the great Borough of Northvale, NJ to create some custom signage. Here are some of the signs before they go out the door for install.  We used Precision Board HDU, both 15lb and 30lb,  and cut the relief of the patch with a 1/6″ Ball end mill on our MultiCam 3000 CNC.  Everything was painted  with Modern Masters Metallic Paint.

Still “Frozen” this Christmas…

Once again we had the great fortune to work on the “Frozen” display at the Disney Store in Times Square. This was a lot of fun as usual and my daughter Mary got to meet Olaf in person! The client gave us sketches of the Frozen Castle and our challenge was to make a display out of acrylic. We came up with a few concepts and started building it half scale to work out the kinks. Once we had the design down it was time to build it full size which was about 8′ tall. Here is the main structure made out of gator foam.

Full 3D Dolphin Art Piece

We recently had a great opportunity to work with an artist client of ours.  His piece incorporated a  five foot long three dimensional dolphin. Of course we immediately said yes to the project and jumped right in. We started by sourcing a 3D Model of the “perfect dolphin” for the job – the client reviewed all the options and once he settled on the final shape we began our work. In the 3D model we removed the fins which will be cut separately and attached later.

Sign Recreation: Ben & Jerrys

Technology is truly awesome! We were recently contacted by a retail store that had  their sign damaged beyond repair in a storm. The client had to have the same sign recreated – this was a hand carved Ice cream cone and logo. She decided to ship me the parts to inspect so I could recreate it. The package arrived and yes it was beyond repair and covered in dirt and… mold. As I was putting the parts together to get measurements Rad, our Production Manager, walked by and said “Just 3D Scan It”.  I hadn’t thought of it but that sounded like a fun way to reproduce the sign. So I put together the broken sign on the floor and ran our hand held Cubify Sense 3D scanner over the face of the old sign and it appeared on the screen in 3D model form.

Rustic Sign – The Catskill Mountain Storehouse

  We just had the pleasure of working with Tim Luby at the Catskill Mountain Storehouse   for their new retail location. They wanted a simple sign that had a rustic “trail” feel. So we set out to get it done. We cut it out of 18lb Precision Board HDU on our MultiCam 3000 CNC. We’ve cut two panels that we’ll glue together

All done and ready to install.  What a fun sign to make – We hope this draws in people from far and wide to stop into this great shop.   John is on the street! After shoring up the existing sign bracket and doing some spot painting on the new steel he’s ready to hang the sign.  All done! Good Luck Adam and the gang – We wish you the best with the new store! Oh and can you stock Reggie Bars?
