PolyEngraved signs are here!

Our PolyEngraved signs are made from a 1/2"- 1" thick high-density UV stabilized polyethylene. This tough sign material won't delaminate, chip or peel and is designed to withstand a wide range of environmental conditions. This UV stabilized sign board material won't fade in direct sunlight and can withstand rain, cold, hail and wind. It resists graffiti, the non-stick surface protects against spray paints and markers and it is also impact resistant.

Available in a variety of color combinations, they are made from 3 layers of High Density Polyethylene (recycled milk bottles, a "green" product). The inside core of the signboard material is a different color than the outside layers. So when we carve or engrave it, this inner core color becomes exposed, giving you the color contrast desired. It looks just like painted wood, feels just like painted wood, but outlasts painted wood by many years!

PolyEngraved signs are our most durable sign and will withstand the harshest weather and they are vandal resistant. Our PolyEngraved signs are perfect for Business signs, Church signs, School signs, Farm signs, Residential signs, etc.

We use a solid core high density polyethylene signboard material, NO WOOD, which means no need to worry about warping, rotting, etc. Click Here to see complete info and pricing.

Wood vs PVC?

We occasionally have customers ask us for wooden signs. As shown on our website, here is why we prefer PVC over wood:

Why we use NO WOOD in our signs...

Signs made from wood are subject to splitting, cracking, rotting, and warping. Wood naturally expands and contracts with temperature and humidity variations. This "movement" of the wood fibers can lead to the wooden sign swelling, causing hairline cracks in the protective paint, graphics or finish coat. Thus inviting even more moisture into the wood. A wooden sign will require regular maintenance to protect it from further damage by moisture. You will need to have your wood sign repainted or refinished often to keep it looking as new as the day you bought it. Further, most wood that is available today is of poor quality. The wood is cut from "new growth forests" using the heartwood. This wood is not as wide as boards taken from "old growth forests" and need to be laminated (glued) together to make it wide enough for a sign. Hence, "new growth wood" tends to cup, warp, split and rot much more today than when we were able to create signs from "old growth wood".

Why we use solid PVC signboards instead.....

Here at we use a solid core, dense PVC signboard for all of our Carved Signs, Market Street signs and most of our New England Style signs. The PVC "builders-grade" signboard is weather resistant and designed for long term outdoor use. It will not soak up moisture and expand and contract like wood does (like the wooden sign photo below). With built in UV stabilizers, it withstands the elements extremely well. In fact this very same product is now used widely in the construction industry for exterior trim on homes and buildings. If you are going to spend the time and money to get a new sign, don't you want it to last a long time?

Eagle Scout Sign Project

Congrats to Nick Stagliano on recently becoming an Eagle Scout. Was a pleasure working with you Nick!

On August 3rd Nicholas Stagliano from Pine Bush Boy Scout Troop #37 earned the rank of Eagle Scout. The highest award that can be given to a Boy Scout. Nick's journey in Scouting began at the age of 6 when he became a Tiger in Pine Bush Cub Scout Pack #37 sponsored by the Infant Saviour Church in 2001. Over the years, through Scouting Nick has been able to learn many life skills as well as attend many camping trips,summer camps, dog sledding in Canada and last year along with his Troop climbed Mt Whitney the highest peak within the continental US. (14,497') Nick's Eagle leadership project was to install a Trail head sign, question box and information posts along the Verkeerderkill Park Hiking trail. These markers list many different species of trees as well as facts about our local area. Nick invites you to please visit the Park and walk the Trail. Nick would like to thank everyone who helped him complete his project, especially Mrs. Mary Webb, Mr. Richard Sherman, Mr.Ed Horton, The Verkeerderkill Park Committee and ofcoarse all the Scouts and leaders from Troop #37. Nick plans on remaining active within the Troop helping younger scouts advance and becoming a counselor at summer camp next year.
