Customize your entrance door with a family or business crest

Aside from adding a shiny new entrance door to a home or business, you could go several steps further and make an even bolder statement by adding your family or business crest. Skilled stamped sheet metal workers can create your crest in copper, bronze, zinc, lead-coated copper, stainless steel, aluminum and other metals. You can place the crest on or above your door. 

Heather and Little’s craftsmen have created ornamental sheet metal pieces for new and historic buildings throughout North America, from the restoration of existing statuary to new crests and other designs. Ornamental and decorative sheet metal has always been a way for people to add their personal signature to buildings. Adding a crest to your kalamein door is a great way to show the world what your building represents, as well as adding historical, traditional touch.

Decorative entrance doors for the home or business

Stamped metal is a beautiful and versatile medium that enables you to decorate your entrance door in almost any way you choose. An entrance should not be purely functional. It is the face of your building and should communicate the spirit of your home or business to all your visitors. You could start with a customized, metal-clad door with your choice of metal and finish, and then add the final touch with a unique crest or logo. Our stamped metal artisans can fashion any crest you want, whether it is an existing design with a long, proud history or something brand new of your own design.

Design or use your own family crest

Don’t have a family crest? Not many families do these days. It is possible to do some genealogical and heraldic research and find a historical crest associated with your family name. On the other hand, you could start a brand new tradition of your own. Even if you don’t have any artistic skills yourself, you can work with a designer to create something that speaks powerfully and uniquely to your family’s name, history and interests. Whatever design you choose, our artisans can stamp it into metal for you, creating a beautiful and lasting piece for you to mount on or above your door.

Design and display your corporate logo

If your door is being made for your place of business, you can always have your logo carved in steel or bronze - or the metal of your choice - to take pride of place over your entrance door. Your existing corporate logo can be fashioned into an impressive - even intimidating - business crest that will be associated with your business and base of operations for years to come.
