One of a Kind Metal Art

Unique Metal Art, Deer Metal Art, Outdoor Metal ArtAlabama Metal Art always enjoys doing  Unique Metal Art! Although we have our standard pieces that we individualize for you, we also welcome your unique, individual ideas. We recently received an order for this beautiful and unique deer piece. We wanted to share the finished results with you, as well as, the comments from our very satisfied customer!  This turned out to be a beautiful piece.

Unique Metal Art, Deer Art, Natural Metal Art“Here are some photos of our big beautiful deer in place and we are so happy with how he looks!  Even from the back side you can see how cool he is.  The metal work is so good – we think he looks spectacular but fits so well with a natural setting without being ostentatious!  My neighbor  asked for your company information so I gave it to her – I told her I thought you could do any silhouette in metal so I hope I am right!

We are so pleased – I can’t compliment your company and metal artists enough! Thank you so much!  Linda W.”

Thanks so much for allowing us to work on this unique metal art house number sign.  This sign was made from 1/8″ thick steel and was cut out on our laser.  The laser uses a computer generated program to cut the design.  In the above example a larger sheet of metal was used.  After the cut-out is complete, the metal is run through a grinder to eliminate any sharp edges.  Normally, the art piece is powder coated; in this case our customer desired the metal to age in the environment.

Over the years Alabama Metal Art has done many different unique designs.  If you have a design you would like us to consider we would love to talk with you.  We can be reached Monday thru Friday 7:30 AM CST – 4:00 PM CST.  Call us at 256-246-0001.  We look forward to talking with you!


Custom Business Sign Testimonial

Custom Company Sign, Metal Company Sign, Alabama Metal Art Business SignAlabama Metal Art recently had the privilege of working with a new Integrative Social Media Marketing Company. Together  creating custom business sign for their office.  Robbie Hillis, founder of Inbound Marketing Specialists, came to us with his logo. He asked if we could make a sign for his office.  We were thrilled to take on the project, and to put our new CNC laser burner to work.

The process for creating a custom business sign is simple. You provide us with a digital image of your logo and let us do the rest! We create a custom CAD drawing based on your logo. Then covert this drawing for use on our laser. Next the creation begins.  We allow you to get as creative as you wish when it comes to color choices. With over 6500 powder coat choices the possibilities are endless!

We Can Help With Design Specifics

In this specific sign, Robbie chose to come look at the project along the way. After the metal was cut, we worked together to decide what colors would be best for the look he was trying to achieve.  If you are not local, and would still like to see your product in the process, we will work with you in that aspect.  We invite our customers to be involved!

We asked Robbie to provide feedback as to the process, and these were his words. “When I began to place things in our new office space at the Shoals Entrepreneurial Center I knew right away that we needed a cool looking sign for the door.  That’s when I floated the idea to Robert after learning about their new laser cutting machine.  Then he quickly got on my website and found a digital image of my logo.  In the end this process was so quick and easy from start to finish.  This piece definitely speaks to who we are at Inbound Marketing Specialists!”
