We're glad you're here. This is the first step to ordering your new sign.

We specialize in designing and fabricating custom carved signs and decorative elements. Every day we do our best to make something that you will be proud to own. If you need a sign for a farm or other business, school, church, or neighborhood, our site is designed to help you determine the style that fits your needs.


How we work

Our goal is to make sure that you will be happy with your finished product. To accomplish this, we need your answers to a few questions:

1. What size would you like your sign to be?

2. Will a single-sided sign work, or does it need to be visible from both sides?

3. What's your budget?   $400?   $1000?   Or, whatever it takes?

4. Do you want your sign to have a hand painted pictorial, such as an animal, farm scene,  etc?

5. Do you see something in one of our galleries that is similar to what you would like?


Based on the information you provide, we will give you an estimate for the design and fabrication of your sign. To begin designing, we ask for a 50% deposit based on the total estimate. Once we've received the deposit, we'll start designing. We'll email the design, and when you've given your approval we'll begin to make your one-of-a-kind sign.





Our most popular signs are carved, using 18lb High Density Urethane (HDU).  HDU is the most reliable and durable product on the market for carved dimensional signs. We have used this product for over 20 years and found it to be an excellent material. Most of our HDU signs will have a "woodgrain" texture in the background.  We use 100% acrylic exterior paint which has superior color and gloss retention, moisture resistance and excellent dirt resistance.

How much will it cost for the type of sign I want?

Most of our carved, dimensional HDU signs cost $95-$125 per square foot. Once we have an idea of exactly what you're looking for,  we will be able to give you a firm price. The more information you can give us, the more efficient our design time. If you see something in one of our galleries that is similar to what you would like, we can give you an estimate based on that.

Will Cary sign provide the design?

Yes. The quote for your sign includes a design based on the information that you give us. We will provide one design and 1-2 revisions if needed. If you see something in one of our galleries that is similar to what you would like, we can design your sign in a similar way.

Can you USE my logo?

Absolutely! If you have something specific that you would like on your sign please send it to us so that we can incorporate it in the design.

How long will it take to make my sign?

Because every sign that we make is a custom product, the delivery date varies depending on the size and intricacy of your sign. Once we have determined the details of your order we can give you an accurate time frame. Most jobs take 4 weeks to complete. Others may need 8-12 weeks.

Do you take credit cards?

Yes, we accept Visa and Master Card. We charge an additional 3.5% for this service. 

Can you ship my order?

Yes. We ship everywhere in the world. The cost for shipping can be calculated once we know the size and weight of your shipment.


You can count on us to:

  • Take the time to listen to your needs and expectations
  • Produce a quality product that stands the test of time
  • Pay attention to the details
  • Meet your time frame
