Aloha kanes and wahines!
I just finished up this big sign for a client in Hawaii and thought I'd show it to you. It is for some new tiki bar in Waikiki. I just sprayed the sealer coat on it and we are shipping it tomorrow. I know UPS will cost a lot, but the client is willing to pay for it. The post office won't take anything this big - it is six and a half feet long by two and a half feet high and it is heavy, solid redwood. I haven't weighed it yet. Any other ideas on how to ship it that might be cheaper than UPS?
Mahalo

I love your signs, my friend! You always do such a great job.

If they're willing to pay why not just do UPS?

Another Great one, Excellent sign.
Shipping can be done thru Trucking companies pretty easily. Just crate it and take it to their facility. Another possibility is "Go Greyhound" I shipped a dolphin coffee table by greyhound once. The glass top was a 6 foot by 3/4 inch oval and weighe in at 250 pounds in the crate and the dolphin was also 6 ft and weighed the same. Put it right on the bus.

Does Greyhoud go from California to Hawaii? I suppose that would be cheaper than flying.

Aloha all,
Thanks for all the nice comments. We're heading out to UPS in a few minutes. The client is okay with economy shipping because he says they are still waiting for other work to be done on the place, so no rush. I looked into flying over and taking it on the plane with me, but the airlines won't take anything that big! Too bad, I almost got a free trip to Honalulu!! Oh well.
