Wonderful reminder of growing up in PA on my parents’ farm in Dutch country. Hex signs are a part of my heritage and I’m happy to have one on my home in Fairbanks, AK now. Wonderful quality and shipping was fast. I’ll probably be ordering more, as I found it hard to choose just one. Thank you 😊

Since the Kutztown Festival was not held in-person this year, we wanted to support some of the vendors. We wanted something that reminded us of the Festival and opted to order a Hex Sign. We browsed the selections and decided on this one. Order arrived quickly, within two to three days, and was packed extremely well. The piece itself is beautifully crafted and the paint work is well done! We would not hesitate to order from HEXcite again.

Store owner was extremely personable and professional. Extremely kind with his craftsmanship and thoughtful. I will definitely be purchasing more in the future. The sign itself was high quality. Nothing beats handmade. I love being able to see the brush strokes and the unique character put into it. 10/10

Absolutely stunning piece of art! The hex sign itself is sturdy, great quality, that will surely stand the test of time. Colors are exactly as shown in the picture. Communication with the seller and delivery was fast! Highly recommend! Can't wait to hang on the porch of my farmhouse!
Authentic, 100% hand crafted, Pennsylvania Dutch folk art made in Berks County Pennsylvania.
HEXcite signs are traditional Pennsylvania Dutch hexes made by Eric Claypoole & Andrew Shirk. They paint in the spirit of their predecessors & mentors - Johnny Ott, Milton Hill & John Claypoole.
While some makers employ other methods like factory printing, silk screening, and computer stenciling, HEXcite signs are 100% hand crafted.
Shirk learned Claypoole’s method of hex sign making during his apprenticeship with Eric and to this day they both use the same process & materials. It starts by hand-sawing each wood disk from its original 4x8 sheet and sanding the rough edges. Then they white coat the disks three times with a high grade exterior paint. After the disks are finished the artistic fun begins! Each individually crafted design is pencil sketched with free handed elements. Once the hex sign is laid out it gets colorfully painted using a superior quality lettering or bulletin enamel. The process is only complete after the hex sign gets delivered and hung for display.
Thank you for taking the time to read about our history & process.
We appreciate your support of our local folk art!

Are your hex signs intended for outside use?
Yes, all our hex signs are made with exterior materials. However, like anything, after years of exposure to the elements the product will eventually begin to age & wear.
What type of paint do you use?
We use two types of paint. The white under coat is a high quality exterior latex paint. The hex sign design colors are an exterior lettering or bulletin enamel.
How do I hang my new hex sign?
You can hang your new hex sign with a single weather resistant screw placed through the pre drilled center hole.
