Custom Electric Sign

Custom Electric Sign

By special request, we created this truly cool Reddy Kilowatt sign.

Reddy Kilowatt was a a company mascot in the 1920s and become a household name. A bolt of lightning, an electrical socket for an ear and lightbulb for a nose, this caricature became a symbol used by power companies up and down the country for decades. 

There were a couple of challenges with this design. A few sections had to be connected (around the ear), particularly sharp corners had to be rounded out, and his lightning strike "body" widened a little to prevent it being just too bendy at the "joints" and mid-section. 

The laser cut the design beautifully!  The lightly textured powder coat gives it a slight rustic look. We love it and it really pops on this kitchen wall.
