Special Services
We can make your text in about any shape you can imagine words can take! Just ask if you don't see what you want below.
We can easily match an arch that's part of a circle, just measure the width along the widest point (baseline) and the height from that line to the highest point.

If the arch is irregular, such as starts out curved and then flattens out, is pointed or the like, you may need to send a sketch or photo.



Curving, arching, or distorting, add 20% to base cost, minimum $10 charge

Adding shadows is easy. For soft shadows we cut out duplicate letter shapes which are used to mask your painted letters- you then stencil softly around the edges. A hard shadow is a separate overlay which you line up and paint after the main letters.

Adds 50% to the base cost. Specify hard or soft in your instructions, as the technique is different.
