About GaroSigns

On Etsy since 2011
Video summary: The film crew and I had fun filming this together. A special thank you to Tim and Tyler for your hard work. We hope all who watch enjoys it.

We want to revolutionize the lackluster desk wedge market - with our modern design made from the best domestic and exotic hardwoods around the globe.

Our story begins in the early 1950's when my grandfather decided to uproot his life in New York and make the trek across the country to Oregon. He'd decided to drastically change the course of his life in a better direction and make a name for himself as a craftsman. It was then he also took the last name Garo not knowing at the time how much his life change would shape our own lives many years later; creating from that point on a family line of woodworkers.

My father, born shortly after, grew up in Oregon watching my grandfather mill and build custom furniture as a craftsman while also splitting time at the local lumber mill. Naturally, the woodworking gene was passed down to my father without much effort and like clockwork he passed the gene onto me. While none of us began our professional lives as craftsman each one of us has stumbled into this natural passion as something that was just an inherent part of our nature. A financial man by trade, my interests in woodworking developed when our first son was born and I decided to build custom furniture for his room. Still spending the days in the office setting I noticed there was one thing the corporate world was missing. Thus, Garo Signs was born one evening when my wife and I decided to create a better desk nameplate that we thought could revolutionize (modernize) the lackluster desk wedge market.

Little did Heather know that the woodworking gene was contagious and she herself had been exposed. Except only this time we had a female's perspective with delicate taste and a knack for graphic design. In little to no time at all we had a prototype of a perfectly modern new nameplate that we couldn't wait to launch online. Again thanks to our family line of craftsman we had been previously exposed to etsy and thought it the perfect marketplace to introduce our products. Shortly after we were ready to hire outside help to keep up with the demand.

Only a few weeks after the desk nameplate hit the market we also introduced the family name sign. My father had also started an Etsy shop under the name Custom Signworks and was having success selling engraved signs. Heather was loving decorating our house with Hand Painted signs so we decided to introduce our first family name sign. We feel the desk signs and hand painted signs are a perfect complement to each other and we're honored to offer products that are made by us to live in your home or office.

Garo Signs is still growing and constantly hiring. We remain dedicated to creating signs made with the highest quality domestic and exotic hardwoods while staying true to our roots. We built this company on strong principles and continue to strive to quickly respond to our customers needs while also being willing to roll our sleeves up and give you a uniquely personalized buying experience.

Thanks so much for stopping by - please stay a while and look around.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to produce and ship my order?

Here at GaroSigns we know you're excited to see your custom sign and we work diligently to ship your product quickly. Standard sized office signs have the fastest turnaround 4 - 7 business days. Bulk orders over 20 items are typically 10 - 14 business days. Family Name Signs 5 - 10 business days. Large custom business signs 14 - 21 business days.

I made a mistake during checkout or just want to change the information for my order?

We are certainly used to this by now. We have a quick internal process to fix your order if it's not too late. Just message us as soon as you can and we'll update your order notes. If your order has already been personalized then we can offer you a 50% off coupon code for a replacement sign if you'd like to make a change or fix the mistake.

Do I get to see a proof before my order ships?

Absolutely! For personalized signs (as most are) we always send a proof before your sign goes into production. We do ask that you first make an order and we'll send you a proof as we reach your order in the production line. We ask that you be specific with your colors and fonts to help us save time as we have many signs to process every day.

I gave you the wrong shipping address?

Please contact us as soon as possible with the correct address and we'll update your order notes.

My information has changed and I'd like to update my current office name plate?

Not a problem! We designed our name plates with you in mind. Simply purchase our "acrylic only" listing for half the price of the entire sign. If your sign was mounted with silver standoffs then they are easy to twist left and unscrew in order to mount the new piece.

The acrylic seems crooked mounted to the wood sign?

Also not a problem! If this applies then you purchased a business sign that is mounted with silver standoffs. Sometimes the acrylic can shift during shipping. Simply twist to the left and loosen the standoffs; re-center the acrylic and tighten away.

How much longer does International Shipping take?

It's hard to estimate that exactly. However we generally ask that you allow an additional 6 - 10 business days for international orders. For instance Canada, Australia and Europe are generally the quickest and everything else can take longer. (We can also offer international priority shipping for quicker delivery times but you can expect a substantially higher shipping cost. Please contact us for individual quotes.)

We ask that you please refrain from using profanity or vulgar gestures.

We do see this from time to time and are unable to accommodate expletive wording or pictures on our signs.

Do I need to approve my custom proof before shipping?

To keep up with our production timeline we ask that you approve proofs in a timely manner. If we have not received a response on a custom proof after 48 hours it will be automatically be moved to production and shipping.
