When your potential customers see your business as they pass by, your hand crafted wooden sign can say so much about your business. This type of sign communicates so well:
Care & Detail– A hand crafted sign gives your customers the impression that you are personally involved in your business. All the way down to the minor details. You put love, thought and detail into the work that you do.
Natures Touch (Non-Mechanical) – With mechanical, plastic and other “cold” types of modern signage being the norm, a wooden sign stands out as something, warmer, more human and more relatable to the customer.
“Historical” Look – Wooden signs are a nod back to the early days of signage, suggesting that your business is well-run enough to have lasted over the decades, and that your history is one of prosperity.
High Quality Materials – We use high quality locally sourced materials at Sea To Sky Sign Co. including our selection of woods, pole brackets, bracket blades and paint. This allows this sign to become the unique “face” of your business to the public for many years to come.
While other signage options may be flashier, a wooden sign is mature, self-respecting, and sophisticated, letting your customers know that you aren’t desperate for their attention because your business already receives it on its own merits.
