Lots of options

Here at The Sign Maker we pride ourselves on being bespoke and this doesn’t change for our ladder signs. The choices are virtually endless but below looks to outline some of the main options available.

The Timber

Choosing the right timber can be a little difficult but the main reasons for choice is price, look, durability and whether you want it painted. The first timber is oak, something you are likely to have heard off. Strong, long lasting and a beautiful grain which still shows through even when painted. Iroko is a brilliant timber (unpainted) for its oily properties which makes it durable.

We then have Idigbo a light hardwood for painted signs that is still durable but slightly less so then oak. Softwood is our cheapest timber but with least durability. The last two timbers are Tricoya and Accoya. Tricoya is a man made timber that is the cheaper then Accoya but will last for a very long time. However it does not have a grain. Accoya on the other hand is a timber, it has little grain but bonds amazingly well to paint. In fact on Accoya paint is proven to last three times longer!

The colour

As we mentioned you can choose to have the ladder sign as plain timber, a very handsome look. Or you can have it painted, a more modern, fashionable look. If you choose to have it painted the colour options are vast, with many of which being matched to Farrow & Ball colours. For a more information on the colours just click here.

The fonts and images

Fonts and images are virtually endless, but they do make a considerable different to the end finish and look of sign. So it is something to take time in making the decision. One way that we can help you make that decision is through our expert designers. They can draw up more then one proof of what the sign will look like before production so that you can get a feel of what design is right for you.
