Quality By Design
Skywatch Signs


What materials do we offer? Some of the materials we can offer you are high density urethane, acrylic plexiglass, aluminum, duraply, foam board, gatorfoam, ultraboard, lexan, polyethylene, sintra to just name a few. As well as wood, cedar and mahogany. Most of these woods are available in 3/4" and 1" thickness.

High Density Urethane, or (HDU) as it is commonly referred to comes 3/4" thick, 1" thick, 1-1/2"thick in either 15lb and 18lb densities. It has gained popularity because it is readily available in plentiful supply whereas redwood is becoming more difficult to attain and more expensive if and when you can find it. High Density Urethane has proven to be superior in both outdoor durability and indoor applications. (HDU) typically lasts longer than most signs yet costs about the same as wood or in some cases less. This provides superior value for your clients. The ability to not only sandblast, but also to carve and rout, HDU easily allows us to create signs that were previously unaffordable to our clients yet creates an image for them that far exceeds that of non-dimensional signs. We also work with cedar and mahogany for the rich rustic look and warmth it provides.

We can also incorporate the use of PVC and Acrylic plastics in varying thicknesses. Another material we are capable of processing is ColorCore, a two color fused laminate material that comes in assorted thicknesses and 10 different color combinations. It requires no painting and can be routed to look like a carved sign. We can even cut DiBond aluminum, brass, and some stainless steel. If you have a specific question about what material is suitable for your project please contact us and let us help advise you.
