Here are some recent pieces we’ve made. Our shop has been quite busy with orders, new designs, and expanding the shop.

We finished a 6′ tall letter H the other day. It’s made of thin gauge sheet metal and is built for hanging on the wall. I’m thinking we need to make some taller letters now, maybe 10 or 15′ tall, and the whole alphabet!
Been working on a sign for our new shop. The pictures show the progress. It’s close to finished in the last 3 pics. If you are looking for custom signage for your retail space, office, restaurant or home, let me know what you are looking for and I’ll see what we can do. This will hopefully be hanging at our new shop next week. Why have a boring typical sign like everybody else? We can also do them with a distressed paint job.
This sign is 8′ x 3′ and it’s built like a tank.
Today I stumbled across some vintage sign letters that were going to be sent to the scrapyard. They are made out of tin, 32″ tall each, and show signs of fading and wear. I’ll get some better pictures of these soon.
Here’s a combination of a couple things that I enjoy, New York and vintage industrial design. This subway sign was inspired by an old one I saw the other day. It measures 60″ wide x 12″ tall x 1.5″ deep and is meant to hang on a wall. Priced at $475.
After watching the show 9 by Design, I felt inspired to make some sort of big city sign. I decided on this one which was inspired by a French subway sign. This piece is intended to be a console table top, but after I built it I realized that it could stand alone on a wall as a decoration. So I’ll be offering this (de)sign for sale. This top is quite heavy, maybe 30 lbs, so I’ll be making a thinner gauge version which will look identical, just weigh half as much. You could also tape pictures behind each letter to make an interesting gallery. The steel has a vintage patina, like a dark blue and gray, and the metal has a matte sealer on it. This will be priced at $350 approximately. I could do custom sizes too. Size is 36″ x 16″ and it is 1.5″ deep.
And here is the layout for another sign I’m working on based off of a vintage NYC subway sign. This will probably be 5′ wide and priced around $695. It’ll be all steel with rivets on the face, just like the Metro sign above.
