this sign is a new record for me personally in several ways.

1. it is almost 50 feet wide and 14 feet tall.

2. it is 20 some feet in the air at the high point... 3 levels of scaffolding to set it up.

3. It is the fastest sign start to finish. The .75 " sign foam arrive in Alaska a week late. leaving me way short of time to carve, paint, seal and install the piece. The Owner had to have it installed by the 25th, a Monday. I got the Foam late on Thursday. Started cutting out the foam on Friday. ( about 8 hours start to finish for all the letters. fish and Critters. ) The Moose also got some 3 D horns, and the Bear got and 3 D nose added.

the letters have a .15 " deep border around the edge requiring. The CNC ran at 300IPM the entire process. Love cutting sign foam.

Saturday and Sunday were paint and Seal days. Monday we set up scaffolding at 8:30 am and were done at 4:20 Pm. The Last thing to go up was a little "One Fish, Two fish, Red Fish, Blue fish"..


Very exhausting weekend but the client is very happy, and I can buy more bits now...

The big letters are 42 " tall and the Moose it 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide.


thanks for looking..

You get Corafoam or another brand?? It's great stuff to cut.

People here that use it use 100% acrylic paint, no sealer, and guarantee them for 10 years.

How'd you fasten them to the building?

Again, the paint job sets it off. Hats off to you. How'd you get paint by number sign foam??

I guess you deserve a cold one after that ...... after you pay for the new bits. lol

Found out once we started mounting that the siding is that permanent concrete board... So drilled through that and ran flat head timberlock screws through to the plywood backing. than touched up the paint as we completed each piece.


You have to specify "Paint by number" when you order the foam.


IT was an off brand of sign foam. This job took 8 sheets, I deal to ship in a dozen sheets.. so now have some to play with.
