Richter Ranch Sign

Richter

I think I made this sign over 20 years ago.  My customer brought it back to me recently and asked if I could clean it up with a fresh paint job.  What I like to call a "liquid overhaul".

Our Lady Guadalupe Catholic

Our_Lady_Guadalupe_Catholic_Poteet_Texas

This lettering is for a Catholic Church just a few miles away in Poteet, TX. I always love the black metal contrasting against the white limestone. 

A side note, when mounting letters like this you, need to be cautious of how the shadows between the metal letters and white rock might affect your ability to read the letters at a distance. The best way to fix this is mount the letters close to the rock or whatever your mounting them to so that a shadow can't get behind the letters very easily.  Looks like the installer did a good job on this install.

I cut this sign back in July and have been waiting to post the pic since it was a wedding gift.  Can't risk ruining the surprise.  A customer contacted me about cutting out a silhouette of this couple forming a heart with their hands to be given as a wedding gift.  It came out great and I really enjoy doing these unique items for people.  This sign was shipped out to San Diego, CA.   Click the "Continue Reading" link to see the image the customer first sent me.

The Oaks at Heavenly - Helotes, TX

The_Oaks_At_Heavenly

The Oaks At Heavenly is a beautiful wedding venue in Helotes, TX.  They needed to block a view on their property and requested a metal panel with a reverse Oak tree cut out.  The 3 panels that make up the tree measure 7 foot tall by 10 foot wide.  They also added a blank panel that forms a 90 degee turn that measures 7 foot tall by 8 foot wide.  The panels are finished in a rust colored paint and mounted to 4x4 inch square tubing post.  The art features 2 doves "leaving the nest" and symbolizes new "Love Connections".  The tree panels will also feature back lighting for a wonderful glow in the evenings. This project turned out beautiful and I'm glad that I got to be a part of it.
