We work in:

  • High-Density Urethane foam board, which is lightweight, durable and doesn’t rot.
  • Western Red Cedar, perfect for applications where natural wood is desired and known to resist moisture.
  • Aluminum composites like Dibond, Alupanel or Omegaboard, available in a broad range of colours and finishes including brushed and polished metals.
  • Acrylics/Plexiglass, often used to cut back-lit lettering, which yields attractive and thick lettering that is impervious to weather.
  • Hardwoods that can be beautifully carved on our device.
  • PVC including Komatex, Intecell, Palight and Trimboard, which cut well and make great sign blanks.
  • MDF, a great option for more affordable indoor signs, with Extira as the outdoor equivalent.
  • Aluminum or other soft metals, which we cut using a cooling device designed for metal that doesn’t contain iron/steel. We can outsource plasma cutting for harder metals.
Fern Wood Medallion Inlay:  This is the first of many designs created to be inset into existing or new wood floors. The wear layer is approx. 1/2" thick hardwood, laminated onto baltic birch plywood. This allows for refinishing and sanding of the floor for the life of the building. The total diameter is about 45". Woods used are 2 types of Cherry, Walnut, Maple and Birch. The designs will all focus on Niagara Escarpment flora and Fauna.
This sign is about 14 feet long. It was carved from High Density Urethane.
