Since our last blog post we’ve produced our first commissioned sculpted sign. Mike and Lois Purcell, owners of the Bull Run Tap House in downtown Lewisburg originally contacted us with a request for a new wooden entrance sign. Like many of our projects, the process evolved from there.

We don’t work with wood; instead we use more stable, long-lasting materials. As we explored the options with our clients, a custom sculpted sign piqued their interest, and they visited the MCS office to get a first-hand look at ours.

The project was a go. We started by designing a new logo (right), then moved onto the sign fabrication and installation. A blend of high-tech materials and old-world craftsmanship, sculpted signs are very labor intensive, But the results speak for themselves — Mike and Lois report their new sign has gotten lots of attention and compliments.
