Lately, customers seem to prefer signs that are made with recycled or repurposed materials. For example, our recent clients, Associates in Periodontics, liked the idea of using old fence pickets. Above all, they liked combining seasoned “old” wood with snazzy “new” gold leaf. Interestingly, there’s an attractive, contemporary fusion that happens when revitalized wood and shimmering gold share the same artistic space. Ultimately, it’s as if the two materials were destined to co-exist in 21st century art, architecture and outdoor advertising.

Building the Associates in Periodontics sign

From the start, our client liked the rustic cachet of exposed roofing nails – lots of them. (The nails also served to strengthen the sign.) Initially, we selected and cut the fence pickets. Next, we sanded and stained them. Then, we combined two gold leaf techniques: First, we gold leafed the logo in 23k gold, as well as an interior gold leaf border. Second, we surrounded both with a wide, variegated gold leaf border. In addition, we gold leafed the entire name, “Associates in Periodontics.” Finally, a powder-coated metal frame finished the sign’s construction. You can visit their website at,
