Sustainable Signs That Meet Your Needs

As a member of the sign industry in an environmentally conscientious world, Paxton Signs recognizes the importance of sustainability in its products and production methods. We have embraced sustainable practices as a key part of what we do, and have made them a part of the solution to protect our environment. We believe it is important to remain mindful and vigilant of our impact on our community and the world.

Selecting the Right Materials

One of the best ways to impact our green direction is to incorporate more environmentally-friendly materials in construction. At Paxton Signs, we strive to use greener materials (glass vs. plastic, paint vs. vinyl, wood vs. synthetic) in many of our creations, as well as fittings and attachments that meet this standard. When possible, we strive to use recycled materials. In fact, more and more of our clients are requesting recycled materials in their sign decisions.

Signs made of recycled materials have a unique, nostalgic and refined appearance, whether you keep the original look of the material or transform it into something entirely new. An example of this technique is the Birdsong/Katz Group sign, pictured below. The sign’s background was fabricated by using 100% re-purposed cedar fence pickets that were sanded and stained, and then attached using galvanized roofing nails to give the sign added nostalgic interest.

Our client requested a “contemporary rustic” look that incorporated recycled, stained fence pickets and large-head roofing nails, onto which water-jet-cut, brushed aluminum plate letters were off-set, giving the sign the desired traditional warmth and modern appearance.
