This beautiful personalised oak sign is the perfect finishing touch for your home. Like all our products this is hand made and carved to your exact requirements.
The medium size is perfect for mounting on a wall, fence or gate. Letters can be finished in a natural 'as carved' state or optionally we can hand paint each letter in black (other colours on request) for greater prominence (see example photos for comparison). We can also carve symbols (eg arrows) at no extra cost.
As standard we apply 4 brass screw inserts to provide a nice finishing touch. Alternatively we can omit the brass and instead countersink the natural oak holes or even apply 'secret' keyholes on the rear (see photos) for a hidden fixing. A decorative chamfer is generally applied to the outside edge but can be omitted if preferred.
The sign is finished with 2 coats of a specially formulated (OSMO) liquid wax oil with UV filters designed for exterior use. This ensures that the natural beauty and colour of the oak will be retained for many years to come.
Text is typically carved on 1 or 2 lines but will be dependent on your requirements. We don't specify a maximum character limit but please bear in mind that text will become smaller as the number of characters increases.
We can carve in numerous fonts so feel free to specify one if you wish. Our default font is Times New Roman.
Upon order we will provide you with some 'mockup' images of the proposed sign showing options for text placement and size. We want your sign to be exactly what you are looking for so will, if necessary produce further mockups until we gain your approval - then we get making!
There is some flexibility on sign size and we will try to design the piece to best fit the text however typical sizes will be up to the following:
Single Line of Text: L: 500mm x W: 80mm or L:350mm x W:170mm (both options will be considered)
Double Line of Text: L: 350mm x W: 170mm
Unless otherwise specified all signs will be made from a single piece of solid oak 22mm in thickness.
