The Ultimate Wood Sign For Your Business

While we may be biased (we are), cedar sandblasted signs are the best choice when it comes to promoting your business. Why?

First, these custom-crafted gems are handmade right here in Chilliwack, B.C. from kiln-dried western red cedar.

Second, when blasted at high-pressure with a coat of fine sand, this lightweight, rot-resistant wood displays a one-of-a-kind, marked-grain pattern that has a wow factor of 10.

Lastly, whatever your business goals, a cedar sandblasted sign will promote and legitimize your enterprise with a unique elegance that will leave your customers coming back for more.

What Are Cedar Sandblasted Signs?

Sandblasted signs are a dimensional sign made from laminated Western Red Cedar. To achieve its 3D look, a rubber “mask” is applied to the substrate, and the negative space is removed by a spray of sand, blasted at high pressure against the wood.

Why Cedar and Why Sandblasted?

Kiln-dried western red cedar is relatively lightweight and rot-resistant for ease of transport and durability. Sandblasting cedar form a unique, dimensional look that is unrivaled in beauty. Make your business stand out with a cedar sandblasted sign.

Step 1. Select Wood and Laminating

Cedar is carefully selected, laminated with waterproof boat glue, and when size dictates, reinforced with steel bars for extra durability and strength.

Step 2. Rubbering Up

During the “rubbering” stage, a design specific mask is applied—for lettering, graphics, and border—to the wood substrate and the wood sign is now ready for blasting.

Step 3. Sandblasting the Cedar

High-pressure, environmentally benign, fine-grained sand is carefully blasted for even depth and coverage of the unmasked wood.

Step 4. How It Works

The sand hits the wood to reveal an amazing wood grain but bounces off the rubber mask leaving a custom 3D look.

Cedar is carefully selected, laminated with waterproof boat glue, and when size dictates, reinforced with steel bars for extra durability and strength. 

Roll Of Cedar In Indigenous Society

Western red cedar has a considerable history of use by indigenous societies of the pacific northwest coast of North America. The dependence of coastal tribes on the tree for basic materials is evident in the range of products crafted for everyday use, from totem poles and housing to masks, canoes, instruments, utensils, and much more.
