Description

18"x36"- If you want to bring happiness to the world, go home and love your family. Quote made famous by Mother Teresa. Popular seller in our Etsy shop. Shown in two color combos: First with a white background, black lettering and our burnt umber frame. Other color options available in checkout.

Every sign you order is created from scratch once we receive your request. The process starts with painting your background color on a 1/4" piece of plywood, we then use your lettering color choice to paint the design on the background. We then finish it off with your choice of rubbed frame color and a clear coat satin sealer for long lasting durability that will stand up to moisture and UV rays over time. Hand-crafted and designed by Sophistiqā. We mix our own finish colors so no two signs will be exactly identical as each piece of wood we use comes with natural imperfections (nicks, knots, chips or pits) and will absorb our finishes differently.

<<<<<SOME SPECIFIC DETAILS BELOW>>>>>

TURNAROUND TIME IS 5-6 WEEKS FROM THE TIME OF PURCHASE. BE SURE TO CHECK OUR SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT MESSAGE ON OUR HOME PAGE JUST IN CASE THIS HAS CHANGED BEFORE YOU ORDER. We do our best to get your order out as soon as we can but also strive for perfection and superior quality.

PLEASE BE SURE THAT ALL CONTACT INFORMATION ON YOUR ETSY ACCOUNT IS CORRECT PRIOR TO PURCHASE: SHIPPING & BILLING ADDRESS, EMAIL, ETC. THIS MAKES LIFE EASIER.

If you accidentally order the wrong color or change your mind, please request a refund within 24 hours and re-order with the correct information. We cannot guarantee color or custom changes after the order has been submitted for more than 24 hours unless you follow these instructions. This just keeps things organized for us and cuts down on human error in our production room.

EACH SIGN HANGS EASILY WITH SMALL FINISH NAIL OR TACK FROM LEDGE ON BACK OF WOOD FRAME. FOR SIGNS LARGER THAN 24" WE RECOMMEND USING SHEETROCK ANCHORS FOR STABILITY JUST AS A PRECAUTION. Hanging hardware is NOT included.

I love this. It doesn't sit flat on the wall, and it's a little wonky, but it looks great. My only complaint was that it too longer than the stated time (which was already 6 weeks) to ship.

Additional policies

CUSTOM ORDERS: We are thrilled to accept custom orders. If you don't see something on our Etsy page you want please send us a message with your ideas and we will offer a mockup of your custom design. Once design is approved we will host a custom listing for payment.

Natural imperfections: We cannot guarantee perfect duplication of any sign as each sign is unique and one of a kind. The wood we use is different with every piece due to natural imperfections and this can cause our paint colors to vary ever so slightly from one sign to the next. Some signs will have minor imperfections that occur naturally in the selection of wood used on your sign but will never compromise the quality and integrity of the design. We feel these imperfections add to the custom and unique quality of our product. We do not intentionally distress any of our signs in any way but some distressing may occur in the finishing process naturally. However; if you would like the lettering or sign to be distressed please include a note when you make your order and we'd be happy to do this for you.

We also DO NOT provide any hangers/brackets for your sign as there are numerous variations that are custom to your environment and art space. We can recommend some options if you need our advice but our signs are designed to hang from the back of the frame on a simple nail in stud application.

Sophistiqā reserves the right to cancel any order for any reason. If order is canceled you will be notified within 48 hours of purchase and we will issue a full refund.
