Sandblasting is an artistically carved technique that is made from a dense sign foam. The image or text comes alive in a dimensional form. Most often the entire outer perimeter of the sign is also carved into a dimensional frame. Whether the design is simple or intricate, the addition of the framing not only adds a finishing touch, but also creates another opportunity to add an additional color to the sign. Large signs like the one made for Cypress Meadows residential community really display the impressive beauty of the 3D work. The dense foam material is very durable and is the reason that such an artistic rendering is able to be used for exterior installations. The carving gives the impression of weightiness, while the foam material is actually lightweight. This characteristic gives flexibility to installation options, which comes in handy for most outdoor placements.

The Cypress Meadows sign is two toned, high contrast design that is easily read form the street and hangs center stage on an imposing stacked stone backdrop. Such a backdrop needed a formidable  sign, like this sandblasted one, to complete the professional, upscale entrance. The large expanse of this stone wall would have visually “swallowed” any less substantial sign. Knowing what will work best on any given background, especially outdoors, is very important, and is where the guidance of an experienced sign company is invaluable.
