    Looks really good Paul, did you do the design or work from customer specs. If the design was your companies how did they decide on this style?
    How much would they have paid for a sign like this?
    I hope you dont mind me asking but we seem to be struggling a bit at the moment when it comes to pricing.

    the brief i got was ‘we want a sign, here, but a bit like those over there’

    now those over there were made from plastic to look like wood and aluminium and they were horrid

    have a look at my orig design for them and the materials included

    hand selected timber posts, stained
    aluminium box section, brushed finished by hand
    aluminium tube, brush finished by hand
    aluminium top caps, brush finished by hand
    folded di-bond panel
    all held together by stainless steel machine screws
    aluminium was painted with a two pack clear lacquer

    and the cost was somewhere in the 650 to 700 region
