Since we have had several inquires as to the finish of our signs, we want to take this time to explain our process and the meanings of our terminology so that our customers understand what to expect when purchasing a sign from us.
1. All boards are cut to size and sanded down once an order is placed.
2. A base coat is applied to each board and allowed to dry completely.
Below is some of the terminology we use throughout our website and their meanings.
timeworn - worn or impaired by time. Showing the effects of age or antiquity; antiquated. Having deteriorated through long use: showing the effects of having been used for a long period of time.
distressed - made to look older: artificially given an old or worn appearance.
extreme prim - by request only. We will sand the top coat down completely, allowing the base coat to show throughout the whole board revealing grain marks, giving it an extreme aged look. Lettering will also be sanded down more than usual to complete this primitive look.
