3D Sign-Making DVD: Watch 18 Signs Come To Life

Dayna Reed, owner of Sign Art Signs in Hood River, OR, has been making signs for over 30 years and recently released a signmaking DVD in collaboration with SignCraft Magazine, “More Super Cool 3D Signs.”

Dayna is a huge fan of Precision Board HDU and after telling us about his DVD, and how many of the showcased signs were made with Precision Board, we couldn’t wait to see what he had put together. We received our copy of “More Super Cool 3D Signs” last week and were quite impressed at the amount of knowledge packed in this video. Set to some rockin’ tunes, the DVD shows Dayna as he works on 18 different signs.


Watch Dayna on camera as he demonstrates many interesting techniques such as:

  • Mounting HDU letters to a flatbed printed surface
  • Combining different substrates and media (Alupanel, Dibond, HDU, PVC, etc.)
  • Adding an Iron Oxide finish to HDU
  • Adding texture to 3D HDU letters
  • Gold leafing
  • Airbrushing
  • Repairing a damaged (by a tree) HDU sign
  • Installations
