No home or business is complete without a custom bar sign made by CNCROi.com personalized to your individual liking, each aspect can be customized, from the font size and type to imagery, shape, design and wood species (or metal).
This custom bar sign was made from 1″ thick laminated Acadia, you can see the strips in the wood so the first step at CNCROi.com into transforming this into a sign is to cut it closely to size – it will be cut a second time based on the references created by our laser.
Before laser engraving this Acadia though, it needs to be sanded to remove the clear coat over it that is applied at the mill.
The custom bar sign is now ready to be laser engraved, this will be doe in several passes in order to create both depth and contrast in the Acadia wood species used.
Corian or solid surface material is also a great choice for custom signage, especially for outdoor applications.
The advantage of a laser engraved and carved custom bar sign is that there is nothing that will fade, crack or peel over time, the laser is creating charcoal, yes, it smells great in the shop during production as well.
When it comes to your font options with custom bar signs made by CNCROi.com, they can literally be any font you want, any size and any further modifications to the font itself, meaning extended it or having it multi-layered.
For indoor use, CNCROi.com can also customize a sign using lamacoids and plastics.
As for images for your custom bar sign, as long as they are vector based, they come out crisp and sharp, and can literally be anything complexity wise as long as they are black and white for the best contrast.
When it comes to shape and design options for your custom bar sign, they are just as limitless, prefer something oval, the shape of a tractor or have all this sign crammed into something the size of a coaster? No problem for CNCROi.com!
CNCROi.com is also material agnostic, meaning if you want this custom bar sign fiber etched out of stainless steel or out of a slab of Black Walnut live edge, that’s no different to us than anything else, we make custom all day, everyday.
Each material has it’s plus and minus when it comes to design options and possibilities, there is no perfect material, only the best at hand.
You may have noticed in the video CNCROi.com is passing over the same areas multiple times, the reason for this is to create additional depth, shadows do play a significant esthetic value to custom signage.
The second reason after depth is contrast, we are simply creating more charcoal out of the wood surface, burn it multiple times, you get a darker color, though this is highly dependent on the wood species and the texture/distribution of wood resin and density in any particular area.
When ever CNCROi.com creates a custom bar sign, we help our customer with the design process, whether that’s laying things out or helping with wood selection or other options that may come into play.
Of course, if you want metal signage, we can make it out of stainless steel or we can use mild steel and paint it to any color you wish.
The bright light you see over the custom bar sign is the instant vaporization of the wood pulp, resin and anything else that was once in the space presently occupied by a beam of light.
It does look cool to see light dancing over wood in this fashion though your eyes are too slow to capture the true beauty of this spectacle, a perfectly time camera shot does a fantastic job though at capturing the moment.
This custom bar sign is now complete, the next step is sanding off the burned charcoal and resin that settles around the laser engraved areas.
Custom signage doesn’t need to be big, we also make custom smaller signs of all shapes and sizes.
After cutting it out perfectly to size than sanding the surface, the true wonder of this custom bar sign is ready to be revealed to the world by CNCROi.com.
But CNCROi.com isn’t done yet, the next step is applying protective coats of tung oil over the entire surface, front, back and sides of this custom bar sign to really make the wood grain pop.
And that’s how CNCROi.com made this “simple” custom bar sign for our customer to hang in their house.
Taking a look at this awesome signage from a few different angles, you can see how beautiful the Acadia came out, especially after it has been finished and polished.
Wood, stainless steel or plastic, whatever material you want your custom signage to be in, we can make it and ship it right to your door!
When it comes to custom wooden signage, CNCROi.com has extensive experience producing amazing signs for a huge variety of projects and applications.
I really love the idea the idea the customer had about having a martini glass instead of the “i” for Live, it’s a wonderful signage accent.
This job was really a lot of fun to make at CNCROi.com, next step is making more for other people around the world!
