This is a handmade subway style sign. My aunt and I make these together...and we love to put some fun into each one to make each one 100% unique! We also use 100% recycled wood, with knots, dings, and dents included :) to leave the character in our pieces...We hope you enjoy our special touch for your own home and for gifts for your loved ones! We designed this layout personally.

Approx. 12" x 36" (12" boards actually measure between 11"-11 3/4" ) in YOUR COLOR CHOICE...
This sign was made by request of a customer in white in all these bright colors to be childish and fun including misspellings...you can have it any color you like with multiple colors of your choice or one color for the writing...all handwritten in paint by my own hand, no stencils, vinyl, or print-outs...lay-out original..

"How to Really Love a Child
Be there.
Say YES as often as you can.
Let them bang on pots and pans.
If they're crabby, put them in water.
Read books out loud with joy.
Go find elephants and kiss them.
Encourage Silly.
Giggle Alot.
Remember how really small they are.
Search out the positive.
Keep the gleam in your eye.
Go see a movie in your pyjamas.
Teach feelings.
Realize how important it is to be a child.
Plan to build a rocketship.
Stop Yelling.
Invent Pleasures together.
Surprise them.
Express your Love. A Lot.
Children are miraculous."

Custom signs are currenlty on a 21day wait due to our heavy line-up before shipping. Thank you for your patience and please email me ahead if you have a time constraint to be concerned of ...for example a gift for a birthday, holiday, etc...Also, These do not fit in flat rate boxes.

The recycled wood will be painted in your choice color then hand-lettered in whatever color you choose with no stencils, no carbon, no print-outs, no vinyl lettering...only my own writing. We then lightly distress the edges and the entire board including the lettering so this will instantly appear as though it's been in your family for years...The sign is also sealed with a clear coating. The back is unfinished, has a sawtooth hanger for hanging and has been signed. Measures about 36" x 12". Convo if interested in other sizes or check my shop... Thanks for looking!

Also, our nickname is WHAGN so if you search for WHAGN all our signs come up that way too!
