Seven Lakes community | city entrance sign with 23kt gold leaf prismatic letters

This is one of my favorites; it is Smooth finished HDU with appliqued letters and graphics. It has custom hand finished prismatic 23 kt. gold leaf letters for the name Seven Lakes. And a removable panel to take a tagline or message when it's decided on.

In this viewthe diference betwen the ordinary flat gold letters and the prismatic letters can be clearly seen. 

What is a "prismatic" sign letter? 

If you are familiar with many old grave stones where the letters are carved / chiseled into the face of the stone in the form of a "V" groove. These letters come to a point in the middle of the stroke width of each letter and if you were to take a cross section of any letter it would look like a triangle or piramid.

Well these letters do exactly the same but instead of being carved into the face they raise up out of it. The reason for this is no matter where the light sauce that iluminates the sign some part of each letter will catch it and therefore be more noticeable.

In this instance the Seven Lakes letters have an additional raised black outline, this ads yey another dimension to the sign face making it evcen more noticeable. Its very subtle but if you could comoare one sign with and one without you could certainly see the difference.

Below is a closeup of the logo before it was attached to the sign. The sandblasted texture frfracts more light and the gold leaf Heron sparkles with so much texture. We discovered that gilding a sandblasted texture like this takes a lot of gold leaf as it is more than twice the original area if it were to be layed flat
