Both of these signs are painted with platinum artwork. The raised sign’s artwork is cut from acrylic, and then painted silver. The etched sign is masked, laser etched, and then silver painted directly onto the wood.
The words “Development, LLC” are at the minimum thickness for raised artwork.
Pricing for raised signs is partially dependent on part count. Each piece is cut, painted, and assembled by hand. Etched signs are created as a single piece, so complexity does not affect price.
