Tucked off a gravel road north of Harvey, Tim Beyer spends his days creating anything from 3D carved signs and engraving tumblers to lettering vehicles and embroidering apparel. There isn't a day that Beyer and the team are doing the same thing.
Red Rocks Signworks, a member of Pella Cooperative Electric, was started in 2010 by Beyer after he and a friend drove to Maine to purchase a CNC router to support his hobby of woodworking.
"When I started out, I was just going to do woodworking project," explained Beyer. "Then I bought a vinyl cutter and other equipment like a wide format printer and a laser engraver and soon we're doing all sorts of projects based on customer's needs and ideas."
Beyer has created many projects not only across south-central Iowa but the Midwest as well.
"As the business started to expand, my goal was to have my own niche," says Beyer. "With the CNC, I'm able to do the 3D carved signs. I have quite a few of them in the city of Pella such as American Wood Fibers and others."
"We love doing the three-dimensional signs that draw maximum attention, standing out from typical flat signs, to better promote your business or accent your home," says Beyer.
The Red Rock Signworks facility does everything from initial design to installation with a complete fabrication and production shop, using the most current equipment and technologies to produce signage of all types. From decals and banners to vehicle graphics and wraps as well.
Most recently, Beyer has added a new addition to his shop that will enable him to expand more into the apparel side of the business with embroidery and screen-printing services. With a larger install area for vehicle graphics as well.
