Help finding a custom exterior hand painted sign co in SoCal

Can anyone recommend a company or individual who still does custom exterior sign painting in the Los Angeles area? We rent office space in a landmark building and the owner will only allow a wood sign (I guess MDO okay) with painted lettering to match the existing (unique font) building name painted right on the stucco. The company who did the original artwork is out of business. I hand drew an example of what we would like our sign to look like and used photoshop to scale a mockup onto a photo of the building, which he approved... However, I am a novice not a professional artist and believe my efforts could be improved. Not to mention that now I am having trouble finding anyone who hand letters or will use paint anymore. Approx size of the sign 5 ft wide by 2.5 ft high; second story installation.

I suppose we could separate out the artwork and installation if necessary. Just attached two low res photos.

I am sure someone here can help you.

To post the photo, open your PDF document in Photoshop, then check the size. Resize it to 700 pixels and save it as a JPG. It should load fine to this site. You can EDIT your first post and add the image there. Afterwards I can delete this part of my reply.

Call me and I will give you the name and number of someone in LA. I'd be happy to do it but I'm in North County San Diego..
