This 17.5″ x 10.5″ steel shield was originally customized for a retiring battalion chief from the Spokane Fire Department. Since the shape is so versatile, we made it available as an option for any order. It will carry art as well as it will handle an image, and makes great sense to commemorate major events like promotions, retirements, and graduations.
Completely customizable, you choose the six lines of text. Please include these at checkout. A proof will be emailed to you for approval.
We source raw steel from a local company here in Spokane to start with. Through our imperfectly perfect process, a distinctly distressed image is the result. These are not defects. It is never the same twice, and gives each individual print a personality. Unpredictable, but guaranteed to please.
A part of the process we really enjoy is that an almost tin-type result occurs over metal. The metallic shimmer shines through the image, unlike the white that shines through photos.
Everything that leaves the shop comes coated in automotive grade acrylic UV protectant. Unless otherwise requested, we use a matte finish, because reflections suck.
Hanging steel can be, well, interesting. Your piece will have hangers that suit the weight of your piece when completed. Feel free to give us input as to what you want. The beauty of custom work is making it truly custom. Want to hang it with cables or chains? Drill holes and lag bolt it into your wall? Invisible stud moaning? We can make it happen.
Want your own art on a piece of metal? Send us a convo and let’s make it happen.
Signs will ship within 7-10 days of ordering.
