Longest Lasting

Important notes about my wooden signs and engraved plaques.

  • These sign letters and engraved pictures are DEEP carved CNC routered lettering, painted matt black enamel for long life outdoors.
  • Easy to read from a distance & much better than shallow laser engraved lettering which are so common these days.
    Although I can use a laser engraver for finer details and small plaques.
  • I also make House Signs and House Numbers
  • Family name signs and Bar Signs with personalised pictures

Order from me today and you won’t be disappointed!

Specialising in Rustic timber signs, some are scorched with flame, (just select option when ordering). Colour variation in photos is due to natural timber variation & also the angle of the sun in my backyard where the photo was taken. NZ Pine & Victorian Ash is a bit lighter in colour. Cedar is best for outdoors.

Sign FAQ’s

  • How long do they take to make?

    A very common question!
    It depends how many are on the list first and how many I am posting out each week at the time of ordering.
  • There is currently a waiting list for my custom wooden signs,
    I am involved in other projects which can sometimes keep me really busy.
  • But my order is urgent!
    This work is all custom made to order and takes time to craft them to a high standard. If there are other customers on the job list before you, who have already paid, then it’s unfair to make them wait too much longer.
    For example – Please don’t waste time asking for a quote and sign examples if you need it in WA by this weekend for your brother’s 21st.
  • Can you get it to me sooner?
    Let me know what date you need it and the State to be delivered to.
    I can sometimes move your job up the list!
  • You must let me know the required date and the State you are in when ordering.
  • How much do your signs cost?
    They are custom made to order, all different.
    Sign price guide << please be aware they aren’t cheap, especially if you want extras, difficult pictures that require editing or a large sign. Cedar signs usually cost between $260-$340 custom made to order depending on size and details.
  • What size wooden signs do you make?

Please see the price-size guide  If you can’t wait for a custom made sign you may find something to Buy Now on my shop pages for Signs or Boxes.

  • Do you supply screws or chain and links for hanging the sign?

No, we don’t supply hardware, but we can supply Screw Eyes if requested on the form.
For all hardware items please visit your local hardware store as there are many different options depending on where and how it is being hung.

  • What are Screw Eyes?
    They screw into the top edge for hanging your sign. (I fit them for you ready to hang)
    Screw Eyes are optional, select silver, brass or black on the form, you can also remove them easily if you decide you don’t need them or choose a different way to hang your sign.

Hello Andrew,
The Dunwurkin sign arrived a half hour ago – I am absolutely thrilled with it – and have previewed it outside with the Sanctuary sign you crafted for me. Have attached updated photos.
I’m going to have to make myself wait until 5 Aug when hubby retires before it gets put back up.Best wishes and continued success
Regards Lyn McLernon – 30th May 2016

Hi Andrew,
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the sign you have made. It is better than what I had expected. Your skill and attention to detail as resulted in a beautiful birthday gift that I can now give to someone close to me.

(asked to be anonymous)
Andrew was a caring and thoughtful professional from start to finish. He intuitively understood what I was looking for and sensitively made some suggestions around design of signs for a special space for my husband. He responded to any queries promptly and went out of his way to investigate different options for us. Andrew was enthusiastic about the project. I was also very reassured by his ethical approach to business.

    • Hi Roger, Thanks for your question. The best way to get a quote is to fill in the wooden signs enquiry form (on this page further up) so that I can have all the details I need (style, timber selection, edge finish, indoor, outdoor etc) then I will reply with an accurate quote and font examples sent to your email – you can then decide if you wish to move ahead with the order.

      If you want a rough idea of price I would estimate $280 – $300, for a custom made outdoor Cedar sign with two lines of text deep-carved and painted matt black, finished with Decking Oil – the highest durability for rain and UV exposure.
      Cedar will last for many years outdoors even in the harshest conditions. Much longer than treated pine and most hardwoods.
