Channel Letter Signage

Channel Letter Signage

One of the capabilities that our new CNC machineIMG_0295 has allowed us to do  is the ability to create high quality channel letter signage.  Channel letter signage is a type of signage where the letters in the sign are dimensionally raised off of the material.  It adds a unique 3D look to a sign and really makes it literally eye popping.  We recently had the opportunity to test out this new capability for a client on their new sign.  We were able to blend both print and CNC abilities to create precision cut and colorful letters for there sign.  Adding a custom routed artwork shape of clear acrylic further added to the uniqueness of their sign.

The Process

Creating a channel letter sign starts with figuring out what parts of the design or text in the sign will be raised.  We generate custom cut files and route out the shape or words on our CNC machine on a variety of different materials.  Assembly follows where we use industrial adhesive to bond the text or shapes onto the signage material using an exact template.  The end result is a high quality eye popping sign that is weatherproof and durable.  We can turn simple flat text and shapes into amazing dimensional pieces!

Custom and Unique Signage

Be different and set your businessIMG_0304 apart with a channel letter sign.  We can custom tailor a channel letter sign to your exact specification and design.  Our printing and CNC abilities allows us to create signage in a variety of different shapes and sizes.  The options are endless, email us today with your signage needs!

 

Custom Beer Tap Handles

Custom Beer Tap Handles

Check out these cool and custom beer tap handles we did for Juneshine, the world’s first Hard Kombucha bar in San Diego.  IMG_0329They approached us with a need for unique, custom, and long lasting tap handles and we came up with these cool handles.  We routed a custom tap handle shape on our CNC machine out of 1 inch Birch plywood and dark stained and polyurethaned the pieces for a lasting and rustic finish.  This project was a great demonstration of the design, print, and CNC capabilities at Plak That Printing Co.  We have the ability to do both small and large quantities of custom shaped prints because of our unique setup and custom tailored workflow.  For your custom beer tap handle or point of sale need, email us at contact@plakthat.com.

Custom Printed Wooden Ornaments

Check out these awesome custom printed wooden ornaments we did of the Ocean City, MD logo.  We designed, printed, and CNC il_570xN.1421216330_edqncut these cool ornament shapes all in house at Plak That Printing Co.  Utilizing the latest printing technologies we UV printed a whole 4’x8′ sheet of birch plywood with individual Ocean City, MD logos positioned closely together.   We then designed a CNC cut file that took into consideration the exact location of each logo on the printed board and sent it over to our CNC cut shop for processing.  The end result was the ability to have a printed sheet of plywood that would be have the logo shape cut out exactly where each logo was. By combining design, printing, and cutting technologies together, we were able to maximum yield on a single sheet of plywood while producing high quality printed shapes in a short amount of time.  Not to mention we created some pretty awesome custom printed ornament shapes.  Email us at contact@plakthat.com with your custom ornament ideas today!

Photos on Solid Plywood

Photos on Solid Plywood

Plak That now offers photos on solid plywood as a wood print option.  Different from our Planked style wood prints, the solid plywood is a great alternative because it eliminates the possibility of plank lines going through photos when printed.  It provides a clear unobstructed canvas while also adding a rustic touch to your photos. Great for wedding photos and photos of large families.  The solid plywood features slightly less pronounced “heartgrain” than our traditional planked wood prints but will still have the woodgrain look showing through areas of white or light colors .  It also has a softer blush color tone in the wood, which complements any photo.
