Farm Signs

Tuesday, November 02, 2010
farm sign for Wild West Farms in MDFarm signs have been around as long as farms have been. In the past it may have been as simple as a pile of stone placed in a specific pattern so everyone new the owner of the property behind the stones. We all remember the post and rail fence with the high board entrance that the cowboys rode under in the westerns.

Options: The Right Sign for Your Farm

Today there are a number of options available to farms that range from post and panel signs, blasted or carved signs placed on a monument or the simple hanging sign. The sign we will deal with today is the simple post and panel sign. The photo you see here is an example that we've created here at Blue Water Signs. 

These signs can take on different shapes from the panel being a simple square to some that have routed and sculptured edges. Panels are often made out of a marine grade painted plywood that has very good durability and is very stable in the weather for many years.

Other panels include cedar and redwood. Then there are aluminum clad polymers that are becoming more popular because of their cost and ability to withstand the elements. In an earlier post there were examples of routed signs in the park that can be used for farm signs.

The graphics on these signs can be printed, or cut from vinyl or a combination of both. When designing to use a printed sign the print must be protected from the elements, including the UV rays from the sun. There are two ways to achieve this protection: a liquid laminate that is sprayed or rolled onto the print, or a hard laminate that is rolled onto the print (either hot or cold). Either one of these solutions will add years to the life of the print on the sign.

Being located in a rural community, Blue Water Signs has lots of experience with designing and installing signs for local farms. We also know how important it is for that sign to reflect the character of the farm, yet still present a professional image to local customers.
