From time to time, one of our customers will send us a picture of their sign by a door, swinging from a rustic wooden post, or above a mantelpiece. Although we see and handle every sign as it takes shape in our shop, there’s a certain satisfaction and poetic feeling of completeness in seeing our work “at home” – in homes, on farms, cafes & antique shops, in downtown New York & Outback New South Wales, and a good number of other places too.
Everything comes in waves, and over the past two weeks, many such photographs have come in, mainly from all corners of the United States:
I think The Fire Escape Bar & Grill is my favourite. What a unique slogan for a restaurant – “Not trendy, just friendly”. It sounds like the perfect place for chewing the rag with the locals, over a Detroit Lager. I’ll have to stop in, next time I’m in Metamora.
If you happen to be the owner of one our signs, feel free to send us a nice picture of yours as well!
This custom hanging sign that we did recently was shipped to a clothing designer in Graz Austria. It is double sided with the the logo at the top and the carved skirt done as add-ons to give a 3 dimensional effect. All the gold is is gilded by hand with real gold leaf. It is simple yet attractive and gives a feeling of quality. With the real gold gilding that does not tarnish and the UV resistant acrylic paint it should attract customers for many years.

All our House Signs are made with the highest quality materials.
Every so often we receive an unusual design request. The sign below, given the name Arthur, was certainly one of them. I never inquired as to the intended purpose of the sign but I assume it is doing it’s job well. Certainly it is not a house sign but we enjoyed making it all the same.
Having just come into the business here at Clover Signs I was pleasantly surprised to receive a request to design a sign to be presented as a house warming gift. In further inquiry into the design we found it to be headed for the coast of South Africa to a house overlooking the Indian ocean. The sign was to reflect the beauty of the view and the patriotic feelings of the intended recipient. Here is what we came up with after some back and forth with the benefactor.
If your looking for a special sign as a gift, or for a property of your own, visit us at Clover Signs and we’ll be glad to help.
