Hand Painted Signs

Hand-painted signs continue to be a reliable choice for businesses that value precise customization and durability. Utilizing traditional techniques, these signs are crafted with attention to detail using materials such as HDU and cedar wood, and high-quality One Shot paints. Manhattan Sign Shop specializes in these bespoke signage solutions, catering to a diverse clientele.

High-Density Urethane (HDU): HDU is chosen for its resilience and smooth finish, ideal for painting. It is resistant to water, temperature changes, and decay, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments.

Cedar Wood: Cedar provides a naturally durable option with a distinctive appearance. Its resistance to moisture and decay makes it a preferred choice for outdoor use.

One Shot Paints: For hand-painted signs, the selection of paint is critical. One Shot offers superior coverage, brilliance, and durability, making it an optimal choice for signs that need to withstand the elements and maintain their visual impact over time.

Hand-painted signs are created by skilled artisans who apply designs and lettering manually. This process allows for a level of detail and customization not typically achievable with automated methods. The signs can be tailored to fit specific aesthetic and branding requirements, making them suitable for various commercial applications.


In today’s digital age, “hand-painted signs” refer specifically to those signs that are manually painted by artists, rather than produced by digital printing methods. This distinction highlights the artisanal quality and custom craftsmanship of hand-painted signs, which Manhattan Sign Shop proudly offers to its clients. These signs are especially valued for their precise customization and durability, utilizing traditional painting techniques that set them apart from digitally produced alternatives.

Manhattan Sign Shop offers hand-painted signs that embody traditional craftsmanship paired with modern materials and techniques. These signs are not only functional but also enhance the visual appeal of any space, providing a sophisticated and tailored signage solution that stands out from digitally printed options. Whether created freehand or with the aid of stencils and rollers, these signs represent a commitment to quality and individuality in signage.
