This depends on exactly how often you need such a sign or what you want to do with it.
Many signs sell for $20-30 (Canadian). This is quite a bit more than an inexpensive plastic sign or even a wooden sign. It’s even more inexpensive than a plain cardboard sign which costs $2-4 (Canadian).
Can you make a sign online by printing or engraving you image with 3D software?
Yes! If you are interested make sure you have an online printing service. The easiest is Shapeways with their 3D sign printing service.
Do companies use laser printers or other 3D software for printing or engraving on signs?
This depends on your brand. If you want your signs to look fancy and sparkle you might want to hire a professional. If you are going to print your signs on wood you can use a machine that uses traditional engraving techniques.
What kinds of 3D tools do you need for this?
You will need at least a laser cutter. If you are a DIY person, you could use a laser engraver. You can also use a programmable laser machine if you need to.
You should also have a laser cutter as these things can be expensive and complicated. Also have a power supply for your printer. If printing for free at home, then you will be using a laser printer.
Can you make a sign without a laser printer?
No, however some people use 3D printing programs and print directly onto wood (Wood Signs).
What about engraving onto wood?
Some people also use laser engraving programs to engrave their signs.
I want to make a sign using lasers or laser engraving/engraving software; but I don’t have a laser cutter; how do I make it?
If you don’t have a laser cutter you can still make a sign using laser cutters. However when you are using laser cutters/laser engravers you might be able to get away with using a simpler laser. If you decide you need a laser, you could also just print out the design on paper and cut it onto wood.
I’d like to use laser and cutting methods to make my signs; can I just use laser engravers or do I need to use laser/fiber engraving/fiber cutting/etc?
You should be laser and cutting
