Associates in Periodontics Sign

Feb 9, 2021 | Recycled Repurposed Sustainable Signs

associates in periodontics signNowadays, customers seem to prefer signs made with recycled or repurposed materials. For example, the owners of Associates in Periodontics liked the idea of using old cedar fence pickets. They also liked combining the seasoned “old” wood with snazzy “new” gold leaf. The resulting Associates in Periodontics sign (pictured) shows what happens when “old” meets “new”. It takes sustainable signs to a whole new level.

When old meets new

Interestingly, there’s an attractive fusion when revived old wood and shimmering gold leaf share the same artistic space. Ultimately, it’s as if the two materials were destined to co-exist in 21st century art and outdoor advertising. With this in mind, we went to work designing and building the 27″ x 42″, Associates in Periodontics sign.

Building the Associates in Periodontics sign

Early on, our client liked the rustic cachet of exposed roofing nails, and lots of them. Additionally, the nails served to strengthen the sign.

To start, we selected and cut the fence pickets. Next, we sanded and stained them. Then, we combined two gold-leafing techniques: 1) we gold-leafed the AIP logo in 23k gold. This included an interior gold leaf border; 2) we surrounded both elements with a wider, variegated gold leaf border. Last, we gold-leafed the clinic’s entire name. To finish, we added an attractive powder-coated metal frame. The resulting sign is rustic and elegant.
