Custom Cut Shapes

The BMCC Mascot cut out of Gator Board with a full color graphic.   Have you ever wondered how certain designs are created where the design is a cut shape?  Typically, a CNC Router is used in the creation or production of the display or sign.  The artwork has the graphic such as the BMCC Wolf Mascot and with a DXF line the computerized router can cut the shape to fit the design.  Then applying the full color graphic on the face of the cut out makes the design come to life. 

There are a variety of material to be used as well.  High density foam board or Gator Board is a light weight material is great for cut out shapes.  Other materials for exterior use is also available such as metal composite. 

Once the design is created a cut line can be added to create the ability to cut out the shape or sign board.  Signs will become more creative and unique, cut letters can be created or unique designs will become 3D when cut and graphic are applied.  Your imagination is all it takes with some creative ability by a designer to make it all happen. 


Make Unique Signs and Shapes That Stand Out   

The ability to cut custom shapes to be used for signs and displays adds a wonderful feature to any promotional effort.  A unique shape adds to the custom look and feel.  And many times a cut shape its what is required for the design to become reality.  Several projects such as the BMCC Wolf mascot or the Ship's Captain cut out (shown below) has to be cut out in order to make the design effective.  There are a variety of materials to use for cut shapes as well - gator board (high density foam), metal composite, and wood.
