Island House Beach House Sign

MY SOUL IS FULL OF LONGING for the secret of the sea, And the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

No doubt the owners of Island House on Long Island, New York, would agree with Longfellow’s thoughts about the ocean. In fact, beach house signs make up a large part of the signs that people design and order on our sign designer website. It is just a fact that the sea has an irresistible attraction for most of us, and if we are lucky enough to have the chance to spend some time there, we will jump at it. Great memories of warm summer days spent with family and friends, time out from the regular routine and normal faster pace of life, and best of all, just taking in the beauty and vastness of the sea and sky – these are all part of what people want to remember. In making a beach house sign, they want to capture this in a name and image, too.

The seashell on this handcrafted sign was sculpted using hand gouges and painted by hand. The main text was incise carved by hand as well, and gilded with 23kt gold leaf, while the subtext was carved and painted. A brushed texture gives this sign the look and feel of wood, though it is really made of high density urethane (HDU), a closed cell substrate that has the density, weight and look of wood, but outlasts wood since it is completely waterproof and insect-proof. The paints are Australian engineered UV resistant exterior acrylics which will weather whatever the ocean may bring.
