The rectangle is the universal application style for most applications. Still, certain aspect ratios of length to height are more pleasing to the eye than others. Strangle but true fundamental basis of art. The Long Boy is useful for signs with sayings and text that is long or multiple graphics. The design is rustic and the edges are uneven and not crisp as are most of our custom personalized cedar signs. If you choose to have your sign finish treated; then, if you refresh the finish once a year with our spray Cedar Treatment & Refresher, it will not turn gray from exposure for a long, long time.
