Please take a minute to view our shop and the items we offer to see what makes Life In Grain the right choice for your next gift idea!

What makes us different?

* Best customer service * We pride ourselves in having the best customer service! When you contact Life In Grain, we promise to respond as fast as we can to ensure your questions are immediately addressed.

* Free design proof, available upon request, with every custom order * Most shops charge extra for this service. We don't believe you should be charged extra to ensure you're happy with your order.

* High quality material * We use only the best available materials. Our personalized signs are made using a single piece of select pine. "Select" refers to the grade of lumber and is the highest grade available. Due to the potential health hazards related to volatile organic compounds (VOCs), we DO NOT use MDF, or other inferior grades of "wood" products. For more information on VOCs please visit the EPA website: https://www.epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq/volatile-organic-compounds-impact-indoor-air-quality

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

All of our items are made to order and processing times vary throughout the year. Each item will have an estimated delivery date listed in the "Shipping & returns" section.

We always strive to meet this date, however it is just an estimate and may vary depending on current workload. If you need your item by a certain date, be sure to let us know! Sometimes we can accommodate certain requests if enough notice is given.

Can I see a proof before you carve my sign?

Absolutely! We provide a free design proof, upon request, with custom or personalized orders. Please note that due to the time involved in designing, we only provide design proofs for completed orders. You can make unlimited changes to your design if necessary.

How do I care for my sign?

We recommend indoor display for all of our wood items due to the nature of wood to warp, fade and/or decay outdoors. When displayed indoors, the only care necessary is an occasional dusting. No need for additional finishes to be applied. Please do not use chemical cleaners or wood polishes as this will negatively affect the finish of the wood.

If outdoor display is required, we can use a wood that is more suitable to the outdoors and apply a spar urethane finish to further protect the wood from the elements. This urethane finish would need to be re-applied annually. When choosing an outdoor location for display, an area that is out of the rain/snow and direct sunlight is best (under a porch overhang is ideal)

What if I give the wrong information or misspell something?

Check your spelling! We can't stress this enough!

If you realize that the wrong information was provided with the order, please notify us immediately. If we have not begun carving your order, we may still be able to change the design. If carving has begun, unfortunately there is nothing we can do to "fix"it. We can offer a discount on a replacement sign if you would like to correct the mistake.

We always double and triple check that the names and dates we carve match the information provided. However, it is possible for us to make mistakes as well. If we do, please let us know and we will get a replacement to you as soon as possible, free of charge.
