We are a private family business operating since 1983 producing unique aluminum castings in the age old traditional fashion - by hand. The same care and attention to detail is put into every casting, a fact to which our customers attest through the complimentary notes we receive. Our products are hand made in Canada. We ship worldwide.
Stages in the Making of a Cast Metal Sign
Answers to Common Questions:
Included with Castings: Stainless screws are included for wall-mounted castings, "S"-hooks with hanging castings
Hanging Brackets: Hanging brackets are available for most sign sizes.
See Price List Family Crests: We have produced many Family Crests. You can see some examples on our Sign Types pages. For practicality and visual appeal, it is often best to use a portion or key element of a crest rather than the entire crest. We will require good reference, either in colour or black & white with all colours noted, or written outside the image. Fax or call us for details and custom emblem prices.
Posts: Black heavy-duty steel posts with Cast Ball & Flange are usually available. Singles for pickup only (10' lengths). Large quantities we do ship.
Custom Emblems: Good reference is required, preferably from line drawings. Generally, custom emblems cost between $85 and $125. Logos and crests, depending on complexity range from $125 to $200. Multiple quantities, Street Signs and Dedications are priced on request. Exact duplicates cost 15% less than original. A custom emblem is a one-time charge.
Delivery Time: In most circumstances we ship in 5 to 6 weeks from receipt of order. Each step in the process takes time. Try to plan early to have gifts ready for Christmas or special occassions. If that isn't possible, you may give a brochure noting that the casting will follow.
Business Hours: 8am to 6pm, N.A. Eastern Time, 7 days a week. In case we have stepped out when you phone either call again, write, e-mail, fax, or leave a recorded message. Our recorder clicks on after the 4th ring. Colour
Brochure: For a copy, please send your name and address, e-mail or fax us. Many emblems are illustrated, but not all. Eventually most will be available to view on our site. It might be noted that a significant number of our customers come back to us over the years with additional requests - gifts for friends, relatives, and business associates - retirements, presents, honorariums, etc.
