American Craftsman Address Sign
This stunning American Craftsman Address Sign is perfect for your American Craftsman Home. The font’s simple, classic, no-nonsense design would make Frank Lloyd Wright flash one of his famous toothy grins and dance a little jig. We think this American Craftsman Address Plaque is very representative of the American Craftsman movement and a good fit for your bungalow, mission, prairie, or arts and crafts home.
The American Craftsman style of architecture is a decorative arts style that began around the last years of the 19th century. Some of the early examples of Craftsman Style can be found in Southern California homes. Some of the prominent characteristics of this style include:
- Open floor plans
- Exposed beams
- Natural woodwork
- Low pitched roofs
- Stone covered foundations
- Stained glass windows and doors
- Tapered columns on the exterior
- Large or full front porches
American Craftsman Address Signs
Our Signs and Plaques have a base of modern 30 pound High Density Urethane (HDU) board (a type of plastic). This is a product that was developed for the aerospace industry and has been used for signage for over 40 years. It’s light weight, waterproof, and will last decades in an exterior environment.
We coat our HDU with a cold applied real metal coating that is in use world-wide as an architectural and industrial coating. It is a well-proven, tough, and beautiful coating that gives the look of cast metal without the limitations of weight and cost. Therefore, when you receive your order, you will notice that it is light weight. Since it is HDU with a thin metal coating, it is light and easy to hang on any wall without fear of testing the building’s structural integrity.
Our signs and plaques receive a marine grade lacquer coating prior to shipment. “Marine Grade” means that the coating is designed to protect even in harsh coastal environments. That being said, our metal coatings are a “living finish” and you can expect some changes over time even though they are protected with a high-quality protective clear coat.
