Doornbos Property Sign

THE DOORNBOS PROPERTY sign was designed by the owner of this home using the sign designer tools on Danthonia’s website. He was able to look through approximately 1,000 different artworks, trying out different ones to see how they would look on his sign. In the end, the pine cones were chosen, on a dark green background. The sign shape, size, colors, edging, font, texture, corners, etc. all had different options available, and the price was right there (mainly determined by the size of the sign) so he could keep the project in budget as he designed. He could also save as many designs as he wished, keeping them for reference or for sending to friends and family for feedback. When he was ready to go, he added his chosen design to the cart and ordered his sign online.

Pine cones were a good choice, since this sign now hangs in Oakland, Maine – where there are a lot of pine trees, as well as lakes. In fact, this town is known as the Gateway to the Belgrade lakes – and a lot of visitors come here every year to enjoy all the water-related activities the lakes have to offer, as well as the largest concentration of summer camps for children in the state.

The artwork was painted by hand directly on the sign surface, while the text was hand carved and gilded with 23kt gold. This beautiful sign will last for many years to come, welcoming all who come to this neck of the Maines woods.

  • I found your company on the internet, and used the sign designer tool. I found it very easy to use. The sign arrived quite promptly, which is somewhat surprising since it came from half a world away. The sign itself is beautiful and appears tough and durable. I’m looking forward to many years of displaying it.
