Custom Pine and PVC signs

Custom Signs by RC Originals

Our sign materials

We offer two choices of sign material; Pine or PVC .
Pine signs: We use top quality ¾ inch thick premium clear pine. The face, edge and back, plus carved text and/or graphic of our pine sign are painted, stained or clear coated in accordace to the customer's specifications. Painted signs receive 1 to 2 coats of primer-sealer, 3 coats of paint and 4 to 5 top coats of exterior grade clear polycarbonate finish for UV and moisture protection. Stained signs receive 2 to 3 coats of exterior grade waterproofing stain-sealer plus 4 to 5 top coats of exterior grade clear polycarbonate clear coat to provide protection from UV rays, rain and snow. This process helps mitigate degradation of pine signs that can be caused by sunlight, snow, rain, and fluctuations in temperature. PVC signs: We use 3/4 inch thick PVC Trim Board which in its natural state is bright white. As it is moisture proof, warp, crack and UV resistant it has a projected exterior life span of up to 20 years. We face the front of the sign with exterior grade permanent exterior adhesive vinyl film in the customer's choice of colour. This provides a face colour through which we carve the text/numbers and graphic giving a sharp contrast between the white carving and the face of the sign. In accordance with the customer's specifications we can paint the carving using top quality UV protectant exterior 100% acrylic paint in the customers choice of colour. The acrylic paint is formulated for painting exterior PVC trim board. These signs have superior resistance to degradation caused by sunlight, snow, rain, and fluctuations in temperature. The molecular makeup of PVC Trim Board and exterior permanent adhesive vinyl film ensures that customers can enjoy the beauty of their sign for many years; as does the optional 100% Acrylic painted carving.

Customer Reviews

RC Originals is wonderful to do business with. I ordered a sign that said "Carol's Cottage" for my sister's birthday. I wanted it shipped to her with a Happy Birthday enclosure card, but I wanted it billed to me. I didn't see how to do this on the web site, but I sent an email to RC and Paula responded immediately with instructions. When you select the design, color and inscription, you receive a mockup from RC for approval before they actually make the sign. The quality of the product is excellent and it arrived exactly as I ordered it and in plenty of time for her birthday. I wholeheartedly recommend RC Originals and will definitely order from them again if I need another custom sign.
