When the folks at Hamilton were looking for a sign, they wanted something a bit retro - something that would reflect their history (established in 1924) that you would see at a glance. Hence, the hand sculpted artwork of their iconic wooden door frame - which looks exactly like wood but is actually made of a closed cell substrate known as high density urethane. This material is the same density, weight and feel as wood, but will outlast it by many years - since it will not warp, crack, rot or split like wood eventually will. The carveability makes it great for sign-making - and we laminate the HDU with a PVC core to give it extra stability.

The main text is hand carved (no CNC routers in our sign shop!) and gilded with 23kt gold leaf, while the smaller text is carved and painted. We think it turned out great - and was a perfect fit for this quality company.
