High Density Urethane Signs are the sign makers dream!
I spent last summer in the USA learning about HDU signs. The work they do there is fantastic. It seems that the UK has a bit to learn about making attractive signs.
The company I was staying with does a lot of 3-D sculptures and gilding work, so the signs really come alive.
Anyway, the upshot is that we now make HDU signs ourselves. The company I learned from mostly makes business signs, but we focus on the house sign market. HDU is perfect for that.
I will be posting examples of our work, techniques for working the HDU, gilding information etc. I doubt I will manage every day, but you never know.
