After graduating from Plymouth State College with a BA in Art, Steve McAnney learned the basics of sign crafting from a local artist and mentor. He later purchased the business in 1985, rebranding as McAnney Fine Carved Signs. After 30 plus years in the industry Steve has perfected his craftsmanship and artistic abilities to satisfy thousands of clients with their custom-designed signs. Although a lot has changed within his business over the years, Steve's passion and commitment to quality has remained constant with each new project undertaken.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS MADE FROM?
At McAnney Fine Carved Signs we primarily use two materials: mahogany and high-density urethane or HDU. HDU is our most common material. It is a man-made product and has many advantages over wood construction. All the materials used are carefully selected to ensure a lasting finished product.
HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?
The sun is the biggest culprit contributing to the aging process of a sign. The painted finishes on our signs will last from 10 to 15 years depending on the exposure. South-facing signs, for instance, will fade faster than a north-facing sign. (TIP: for 2 sided signs, turn the sign around every 2 years to ensure equal weathering.)
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Cost of a carved sign is determined by three factors 1) size 2) complexity of design and 3) whether the sign is single or double sided. Double-sided signs are approximately 70% more than a single sided sign. Contact us with your specifications for a free preliminary estimate.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The design and manufacturing process typically takes 6 to 8 weeks.
