Wooden Signs and Wood Carving
Established in 1994, the Sign Carver offers a signage medium that says ‘who you are’, as well as ‘where you are’. The first impression and subliminal message given by a hand-carved wooden sign at the entrance to your home or business makes an important statement about who you are, your sense of style and your attention to detail.
Hand Carved Signs
Beautifully crafted hand-carved signs are best able to project certain images, be these, for example, of an ethnic, classical or unique feel. The Sign Carver designs and produces signs that reinforce your image or brand. For these reasons, imaginative, decorative signs are gaining in importance. The Sign Carver’s work was inspired by the Cape Cod, Nantucket, and New England signage style that is popular in the northeastern United States.
