So if you see something you like and want the matching glassware, or the matching fruit skewer or drink stirrers to match one of our glass themes. please message me. I am working very hard at getting everything listed, but of course this all takes time.

Each sign has its own personality . . . the wood may be a bit different, it may be painted slightly differently, the design may have been modified a bit, an imperfection here or there, your customization added, etc. They make wonderful house-warming gifts, as well as a me-to purchase "chust for nice"! These laser-engraved Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Signs are crafted from premium hardwood and hardwood veneers in a variety of sizes and wood species. After the hex design is laser-engraved into the wood it is cut to the desired size. Then its meaning and/or any custom text is engraved on the back. After lasering, the hex designs are either hand-painted or darkened with natural brown to make the engraved design "pop". The final hex sign includes an informational card, explaining the meaning of the design and symbols in the hex (see explanation of meanings below).

Hex signs are normally painted using the primary colors - blue, red, green and yellow. (If you dig deeper into Hex Lore, each of these colors has a meaning). We use these same colors, when painting the hexes. However, if you opt for the dark-brown filled then note that we have dedicated a great deal of time to creating the hex designs so that the design looks great even when not differentiated with colors. All versions are beautiful and a matter of choice.

T H E - B A C K - S T O R Y:
Hex signs are a form of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art, related to fraktur, found in the Fancy Dutch tradition. Being in the midst of PA Dutch country we see hex signs on homes, businesses and barns. Many folks attach meanings to the symbols and colors in the signs. We do include this information, but I see the hexes as purely decorative, or "Chust for nice" as in the local dialect. Almost all of the hex signs represent Luck, Goodwill and/or Happiness. Interestingly Hex signs are a Pennsylvania Dutch custom, not to be confused with the Amish who did not adopt the custom of decorating their barns and do not use hex signs to this day.

We have PA Dutch in our blood and grew up with our Grandma and Mom speaking Dutch whenever they did not want us kids to know what they were saying. Even to this day Dutch phrases, such as snicklefritz, nix-nux, rutching around and Gott Im Himmel were directed to our children and now to our grandchildren! My kids even learned Dutch in pre-school and we can all sing Happy Birthday in Dutch!

We love taking the traditional designs and making them laser-friendly. Marrying these folk-lore symbols with new technology was a bit tricky, but well worth the results. Offering wooden designs first was the obvious place to start, but now we have designs in many other substrates such as acrylic, sun-catchers, laserable metallics, stained glass and paint-your-own kits. Stay tuned for more or simply ask

Additional policies

WHOLESALE and/or CUSTOM ORDERS: I can modify just about any item we offer. If you like an item but want a different color, style, shape or size. If you want your logo, your name, special text, special etching or whatever, we are here to accommodate you. Message me so we can determine your needs and make a private listing for you.

ALWAYS ASK US, IF THE SHIPPING SEEMS HIGH! Computers don't do a very good job of calculating shipping charges on combined items. Nor can it determine if shipping more economical in a flat rate box. Trying to combine weight and dimensions of multiple items sometimes results in overcharges. We can always review your potential order to see what shipping will be. We are more than willing to adjust if we can do better!
I sympathize as I am a terrible last minute shopper? We strive to ship all orders as quickly as possible. All items are custom made-to-order and most shipped within 3-8 working days, but some items may take longer to complete. If you have specific deadline by which you need to receive your order, please contact me to ensure I can meet your expectations.
Most listings will tell you if you can customize an item. And you can enter that info checkout screen there is an area labeled NOTES TO REDTAILCRAFTERS. This is where you should enter the customization / personalization details and any special instructions you have for the order. If you want something personalized, and you do not see that in the listing then please message me. Together we can try to work out a solution.
Yes you can. Many of our items have the option to choice the quantity in the drop down choices, and the larger the quantity the less per item. Other items qualify for a quantity discount code, which is noted in the listing. And if you need a custom quote on a larger quantity, simply message me with your request.
We can add a gift message to any and all items. You simply need to include the message in the order notes. Gift wrapping is not as easy as some items items are too large to properly wrap. However, you can always ask and I can let you know what I can and cannot do.

Please Note: We do NOT include any pricing on our packing slips.
That's OK. Sometimes it is hard to envision what the monogram style will look like with your letters/text. Simply place your order for one of the styles you like and include a note with 2 or 3 other styles that interest you. Once I receive your order, I will mock-up your selected styles with your letter(s), so you can view them and make a final decision.
