How we process our Wood Camping Sign
Our process is quite different than what you might experience with crafters who make signs on the spot at a fair or craft event. We use the best, clearest wood, clear redwood and clear western red cedar. Both woods are at the top of the list for woods that take the longest to decay outdoors. We do not cut our sign blanks in advance, so that we can make sure that all the lettering is carved as evenly as possible. No letters are deeper or lighter than their neighboring words, because the wood when we carve is straight and true.
We use professional sign paint for our borders and lettering. Because of it's composition it takes a long time to dry, and therefore our total process takes at least 3 days and sometimes up to 5 or 7 days. How long our signs take depends on the humidity level, and the humidity level depends on where we are making the signs at the time. We like to travel. So many summers we are living in our RV and making signs in our work trailer. Humidity levels can be a real bear during the summer camping season. It just takes a little longer to get the wood right before we carve.
Once the sign is carved and the lettering and edges are blackened we paint any color graphics by hand along with paw prints. Therefore some of our graphics are limited to the size they are shown in the example, and can't be squeezed into smaller spaces, if we are to hand paint them. RV units with all their details get very very small spaces to paint, and we've given up on trying to do that.
Gary then assembles the parts to the signs, along with a coat of colored water repellent sealer. They dry again overnight and I pack and ship along with printing the labels. One or both of us makes the trip to the Post Office, or if we are in an ideal location, our postal carrier picks them up and they are off to their destination.
All of this takes more time than people expect, and it is very hard to predict in advance, the exact number of days it will take to produce a sign. Of course that calculation is also dependent on what comes before your sign, and whether the humidity and wood cooperate for the 10 signs before yours as well.
