do I mount my sign?
can install eye-hooks or add slots on the back to make it easier to
hang. We can also pre-drill holes so that you can just screw it
directly to a post, tree, railing or building. We also add different
hardware options so that your project can be hung like a painting.
I hang my sign outside?
cedar is one of the most durable woods available, hanging your sign
outside will not ruin it. If the sign is made from a material other
than cedar, we can provide recommendations for its proper care.
about project sizes?

correctly. Once payment has been received by us, you will be able to

font styles are supported by our design software.

black or dark brown is recommended for house or property numbers since
these colours give maximum contrast for viewing at a distance. Other
colours are possible and can be quite striking.

usually take 1 to 3 weeks to complete from start to finish. Because of
the amount of work that goes into each item, and that we rely on
customer input throughout the process, this time frame is approximate.
It will also depend on the number of orders we have in progress. Some
boxes and “just for fun” signs are in-stock items.
