About

All in the family

In 2012, Amanda began dreaming up signs to be used as wedding guest books. After researching wood types, paint, and sealer, the team began creating the "guest books." Amanda's original design continues to be the most popular sign in the shop.

Amanda hand picks every single board used to create the signs. She uses high quality, sturdy wood and the best materials to assemble the signs. The finished product is an heirloom quality piece of art that can be passed down for generations.

The wood is cut, and prepped for painting by Aaron and Amanda's dad, John. The two "handy-men" have several other responsibilities around the shop, they also smooth out each board and assemble the signs. Their help has been a blessing on Amanda who can now use the majority of her time designing and painting.

Amanda and Aaron marvel at the thought of the thousands of families who have one of their hand painted designs hanging in their homes and they are grateful for each one.

The guest "book" wood signs are created with high quality fresh wood, not reclaimed fence posts so there is no chance of rotten or bug-infected wood. Each piece of wood is completely stained for the protection of the item. Signs with a painted background will be stained first, then the sides and the front of the sign will be painted.

The wood varies in color (light brown to deep brown tones), grain, holes, and natural knots/cracks. Requests for specific wood grain/tone/character can not be accommodated.

Frequently asked questions

Rush Orders

We save room in the schedule for a limited number or rush orders each month. Just send a message if your order is needed within 2 weeks of the order date to make sure we can get it out to you in time for the event.

Guest Book Sizing

The standard size is about 18" x 30" which can hold a wedding of up to 250 guests well. For a small wedding the 18" x 24" sign would be best. Any of the designs in the shop can also be painted on a solid wood 16"x24" piece.

Wood Finish

We are often asked which wood finish is best. If you intend to use the sign as a guest book alternative, we suggest the light wood so your guests can write on it with a Sharpie marker. Paint pens can blob and smear.

Materials

We use the highest quality wood and materials to build the signs. Each sign comes ready to hang with either a wire hanger or keyhole notch.
