“As a dentist, I work in a demanding; highly detailed setting where perfectionism excels and everything else falls by the wayside. I needed signage for my practice and contacted Lars at Condor Systems to design and build my signs. In the process, Lars proved himself to be an excellent communicator, craftsman, and artist. His input during the design phase was thoughtful and helpful, and he was extremely patient and diligent as we worked through many possible concepts. Of note were his excellent computers drafting skills and impressive software, which enabled me to see mock-ups of our concepts almost instantly.
“Once the design process was complete, the real art began. As a woodworker, I noted Lars’ skill in material selection (beautiful, thick, clear cedar slabs) and machining. Later, during the paint phase, Lars walked me through carefully selecting colors and borders for maximum impact.
“At installation of the signs, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Lars had taken the time to hand paint the carriage bolt heads that were used for my door sign, have custom steel brackets fabricated, and triple-coat the cedar posts with sealer. He even carved the cut ends of the posts to match the finish on the rest of the post. I consistently receive positive comments on our beautiful signs, and they have increased my practice’s visual presence in a positive, beautiful, and excellent way. In a world where so few people recognize or deliver excellence, Lars Muller of Condor Systems has not only delivered me a fantastic product, but also inspired me further in my own pursuit of excellence with his incredible workmanship.”
“Working with Condor signs has been a blessing. Lars was able to assess my situation and come up with the perfect solution that fulfilled both my needs and my budget. My signs are bright, beautiful and make my business look very professional.
“Thank you so much Lars and Condor Signs. I would highly recommend you to everyone as I found your professionalism and quality of work a breath of fresh air.”

“We were super happy with our new sign. The process from the initial design phase to the completion was super easy. We appreciated the professional design tips we received from Condor Signs – it made all the difference! We love our sign and feel that it truly reflects who we are as a society. Thank-you Condor Signs for the beautiful, hand carved wood sign”.

“Got the sign from Ernie in Abbotsford today and it is great, better than we were imagining. It’s a true piece of art. Thank you. The pigeon looks as though it would be in live form. Just great!!!”
“We chose Condor Signs because we wanted a sign that was not only breathtaking and truly Canadian but rugged enough to stand up to all the mountain seasons will throw at it. We are very happy with the end result, also the help and guidance we received throughout the process. We feel the way our sign looks today and the way it was constructed says much more about our business than the words and pictures on it ever could.”
“The sign is excellent. So good that I am now taking your advice and re-designing the hanging frame.”
“Kylie and I are extremely fortunate to have meet Lars, Condor signs has completed the design build and installation of a spectacular sign to our holiday home. Lars was very helpful with every aspect throughout the project and provided many ideas for us to work with.”

“Hi Lars, Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the signs you created for The Bulldog Silver Star. Both signs are outstanding and give the building an identity. It was a pleasure working with you on creating the perfect signs for us and will be sure to look you up when we are in need of another piece.”
I have been very happy with my Condor sign. Lars produced it under very tight time constraints, to be ready for a television shoot. It has been permanently mounted on our lodge in direct southern exposure, at a 5,300 foot elevation for 6 years now and still looks great.

Finding a farm sign had been on our list of things to do for many years but I could never find the right sign maker. Then I stumbled upon Condor Signs website and I was immediately impressed. I sent an email, received a prompt reply as well as a phone call from Lars. Wow … great customer service and I hadn’t even bought a sign yet. That in itself, had me sold.
It didn’t take very long to throw some ideas around, send a few photos and receive a mock up of what our sign would look like. Even better … our sign was going to be an original.
Today we received our beautiful sign. It’s perfect and we can’t wait to show it off. Thanks for all your hard work Lars!
I highly recommend Condor Signs for their quality workmanship and fabulous customer service. Thanks again.

“What a blessing to have Lars design and build my sign. The sign looks like a piece of art! It had only been up for a week and I had so many comments about it. Lars was very patient with me and walked me through the process. He sent me many “mock ups” and we went back and forth with ideas. His creativity made it hard to decide because they all looked so good. Thank you so much Lars, for the final result. I am extremely happy with my sign.”

We chose Condor Signs because we wanted one sign that would represent our business best. Lars truely met all of our hopes. We wanted a rustic sign that also had class and beauty that no one could miss when passing through town. Lars was very professional throughout the entire process and always made plenty of time for us while listening to our ideas as well as giving great input from beginning to end. We feel he went the extra mile for us in providing a mounting bracket and clear advice on hanging and preserving the sign. Lars is an excellecnt artist with great attention to detail and truely cares about his product and his customers. We feel that our sign will be a large part of bringing customers in our door due to it’s beauty, clarity and uniqueness.
“Condor Signs has been amazing to work with. My siblings and I have now purchased three for each other as wedding gifts as the signs are of such high quality and beautiful craftsmanship. Lars has been amazing to work with, we have come to him with broad outlines and ideas and he has turned each of these ideas into pieces of art that each one of us cherishes. Not only was Lars easy to work with, he was prompt in his responses and able to adjust on the fly when we had last minute additions and changes. I would recommend Condor Signs to anyone who is looking for a unique and beautiful piece of art customized to their personality. Thank you Lars and we will see you again, when the next sibling gets married.”
With seven siblings in our family, and all of us being independent adults, its always tough to figure out what to buy for each other on special occasions. And over the last few years as we have started to get married, its become even more difficult to find the perfect gift for each other – a combination of “cool” and yet a personal keepsake to have as a reminder of our special wedding days.
Growing up skiing and boarding at Silver Star Mountain, we are all very familiar with the beautiful carved wooden signs displayed outside many of the mountain side businesses. It was from these signs that we were inspired to have our own family signs carved when each of our siblings got married. We have started a unique tradition of having the newlywed couples names and wedding date (or ‘est.’ date as we have chosen to write it) carved into a unique sign and presenting them to our siblings on their wedding days.
Our siblings spent many hours with Lars to create a personal sign and images on them that reflect what each couple is about. Each of these signs have become works of art that we all proudly display in our homes. We could not be more happy with the beautiful results.
If anyone is looking for a unique, and sure to be treasured gift, then we would not hesitate to recommend Lars and Condor signs.
