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. We’ve applied a wood texture and left the letters of the sign raised.

745Once done cutting we glued the panels together then primed the sign with precision boards FSC-88 Primer. We then mixed up some latex paint and painted the brown wood color with several glazes of a darker brown.  The letters got their yellow paint.

Here we printed the clients logo to 3mm dibond on our Oce’ Arizona flatbed printer – then glued in place.

HDU Letters – KENZO Window Display

This was a quick turnaround job – 1 day start to finish  – the client needed large foam letters and would be hanging them with fishing wire in a window display. The dimensions of the letters are 15″ high by 8″ deep. So we cut the letters in two layers from 4″ 10lb Precision Board HDU. Its lightweight and real easy to work with.

On the front part of the letter we routed a channel on the face to make painting the logo stripes easier.



Mark then glued the front and back piece together.


Once cut and glued its Greg turn.  Here he is sealing the foam with Coastal FSC-88 Primer – a quick coat of latex white and a the black stripes to finish it off.



We then installed eyelets for hanging.


All done – just in time….
