The city is bounded by Batiquitos Lagoon to the north and San Elijo Lagoon to the south. Old Encinitas is a small beachside town with small retail and funky housing near the beaches. Cardiff-by-the-Sea  and Leucadia are beach communities that are a part of Encinitas. The best known beach is Swamis. The inland part are neighborhoods or track houses, shopping malls and El Camino Real. For a small city, shopping is everywhere : Encinitas Village Shopping Center, Encinitas Ranch Town Center, The Small Mall (603 S Coast Hwy 101), Moonlight Plaza Shopping Center, Rancho Santa Fe Plaza, The Lumberyard and Camino Village Plaza are all there.

Boutique Retailer Signs

Looking for a unique sign for a unique shop? Finding that great idea is not easy. Here are a few

Halo Lit channel letters. Halo Lit Letters or Reverse Channel Letters are made from aluminum faces and sides, called returns. The light is from LEDs inside the letter. The letter is mounted with standoffs about an inch away from the wall. This lights the wall creating a halo effect around the letter. These are commonly seen as professional, or upscale.  Here are a few examples.

Internally Illuminated Acrylic Letters. We call these hog out letters. There are 2-piece CNC routed letters. Normally we use 1” thick Acrylic, paint the top and leave the bottom clear or white. It has a similar halo effect, but the light exits the side and not the back. These can be flush mount

Push Through Pan.  A push through is made from two parts, a sheet of Aluminum and a sheet of Acrylic.  The Aluminum is routed out, so the letters are holes in the Aluminum.  The Acrylic is thick, ½”, ¾”. We route the letters about 75-80% through and leave a flange. The letter “pushes through” the Aluminum, but the Flange will not go through. Light exits the sides like the “Internally Illuminated Acrylic Letters” (Hog Out) above.

3D Letters, routed out letters. We call these FCOs (Flat Cut Out Letters. These do not light, but they are idea for inside malls, under awnings, in other sidewalk locations.

Sandblasted signs. Before CNC routers, Sandblasting was used. It is old world sign making and is found in older classic areas. It makes a shop look like it has been there for a hundred years. If you want that old England, London Shop, this could be your ticket.

Blade Signs. Blade signs come in all sizes and shapes. They are used in walking areas, sidewalks, indoors, under canopies, breezeways and the like.
