Announcement   We have grown enough to be busy all year round. We are no longer taking special event requests for delivery less than 2 weeks out. Please order well in advance of your gift giving date. Christmas orders should be placed prior to November 20th.

Order early for holidays, such as Father's day and Christmas. We get absolutely swamped, and you'll get much better customer service in May and September than in June and December, when the majority of our time needs to be devoted to making and shipping signs, rather than helping direct people to items that are easily searchable.

Signs are custom made from redwood or cedar wood. Our creative process takes at the least 3 days, and depending if there are color graphics can take up to 5 days just to produce your item. The process involves several drying processes and we take great care to produce a delightful hand crafted sign that will endure for many many seasons. We personalize them to your specifications. Our selection includes temporary grave markers, beach, lake, rv and camping items. Cabins, cottages and getaways make lovely backdrops for our redwood and cedar signs. Please put instructions for lettering and graphics in the "comments to the seller" section of the purchase. Our wood carving can accommodate almost any Windows font. However we are limited as to size. 11.25" is the largest in one dimension that we can provide. We ship within 14-16 days of your order. All signs are coated with a UV protectant guaranteed to retain color for 5 years. We do not recommend coating our signs with polyurethane.

Because of problems with prior orders we will no longer be accepting requests to ship to any address other than the ship to address on the actual order. We also will cancel and refund any orders that our layout mock ups are not approved though email.

We expect our customers to read our emails and to be sensitive to our requests to keep emails to a minimum, thereby not asking duplicate questions for things already answered. PLEASE READ your mock up email in it's entirety. We will not respond to requests for information that has already been answered. Please please please check our DESCRIPTIONS (below the photo), the listings for PRICE and SHIPPING information (found on the shipping and policies tab below the photo) and realize that if we show blackened edges and lettering in every FINISHED photo on our website, your finished sign will have it also. We cannot show blackened edges and colored graphics on our mockup photos because we have not yet produced your sign.

3 out of 5 stars

The sign that I ordered from this shop is gorgeous and what we ordered, and if I was only reviewing the sign it would get 5 stars. The customer service, however, was not great. The estimated shipping time was within 14-16 days when I purchased the sign, which was completely fine. After about 2 and a half weeks, I had gotten no email or confirmation of shipping so I reached out and asked when it would be shipped. I was told “a few days.” Another week and a few days passed with no information and no shipping yet, so I emailed again and asked when it would be shipped. I was again told 2-3 days. Finally, about 4 days later, it was shipped. My sign didn’t ship until over a month after I ordered it, which would’ve been fine if the store would’ve communicated with me and kept me updated throughout the process, but they did not.

    We plane the wood, cut out the shape, design the layout, carve it, route it, clean up the sawdust, paint it, sand it, clean up more sawdust, coat it, package it, print labels, and deliver to the Post Office. Dispose of sawdust. Anyone want some?!?

Frequently asked questions

How do I customize my order

To customize your sign enter preferred font, text and graphic information in the comments to seller box on the 2nd page of the order process. See shipping estimates under the shipping and policies tab.

Why can't I get my sign within the week?

Our creative process takes at the least, 3 days, and depending if there are color graphics, can take up to 5 days just to produce your item. The process involves several drying processes, and we take great care to produce a delightful hand crafted sign that will endure for many many seasons.

The remainder of our 10-16 business days is taken up with other orders ahead of yours and possible production problems or supply runs.

Many people who do not receive their sign by a gift giving date use the mockup photo in a gift card. The recipient then is able to have two surprises instead of just one, when the sign actually arrives.

Will my campfire be colored even though you don't show it colored on the mockup photo?

All campfires ordered will be colored in our finished product.

We cannot show color on our mockup photos due to the limitations of the design program. The mockup photo is to correct spelling and layout issues only.

Why can't I select Express One Day Shipping?

Making custom signs is like working in a hamburger shop that offers a hamburger with 57 different condiments. We do our best to get it right. And that means for us to turn out a product that is just the way you like it that we have to narrow the options to make everything the same in some ways. So everything is always shipped USPS Priority Mail, 2 days to the East Coast, and 3 days to the rest of the United States.

How do I care for my finished sign?

No sealant is necessary since Redwood and Cedar are naturally resistant to decay. We apply a coat of deck sealer to help retain color. It should last a good 5-7 years.

We do not recommend sealing with polyurethane We only recommend spar varnish or urethane for exterior use.

Our wood slabs are already sealed with Spar Urethane, nothing else is necessary.

Why can't I change the shipping address after I've placed the order?

It's against our posted policy to ship to any other address than the address listed on the order. Both Etsy and Paypal will not back the seller if the there are any payment disputes, if the sign is shipped to somewhere other than the address on the order.

We can however cancel the old order and replace it with a new one with the correct address.

Why can't I place my order or ask question by telephone?

I'm sorry but we are online only. The Etsy website is our only method of placing an order. I don't have a way of taking credit card payments other than the website. Etsy will not allow me to place an order on my own website.

I will be more than glad to answer questions through Etsy message or email, but most of the most common questions can be answered within each listing itself. Please view the item details for information about size, wood type, graphic choice, font choices and shipping estimates.

I like the listing I chose but I want different types of signs below the main sign.

Add on signs can be your choice of children's names, his n her sign, location, est date or dogbone signs. All add on signs are interchangeable.

Child's name signs and dogbone and Cat oval signs are only large enough to carve a single name.

The rectangle shape can be made larger to accommodate several names. We do not recommend putting 6 single names on one sign because we restrict carving smaller than our standard of 1" lettering in order to be able to be blackened and sanded.
