Announcement   Only 97 items (of many millions) on Etsy were chosen for inclusion in Etsy's "Spring 2013 Lookbook" (a publicity book sent to industry trend-makers). NorthStar50 is pleased to be one of the few included!

A lifelong artist and typographer, I'm interested in many areas of design. With my typographic letters and numbers, my main goal is to stay true to the shape of each form. I make these one at a time, (in my spare time) in my small shop in rural Oregon.

These started out as an experiment to see how accurately I could cut wood. I put a few up here on Etsy, and people have responded very well, so for now, I'll continue to make them.

UPDATE: Once again, I've been become so busy with design work, that I won't be able to take on any custom wood projects for a while. I may be able to post some other pieces in January that were finished a while back.

I do love it (second time I'm ordering this symbol), but I had ordered it in yellow (came in red). It is still very nice though and my son's math teacher really liked it.

These signs are super cute! We have this symbol in our business logo, so purchased two for the owners to have on their desks and now all the employees want one for their desks too. The red color is not your typical red, more vibrant. Would order again.

Shipping
We usually ship within 2 days of receiving your order. Sometimes we'll give your item an extra coat of paint for durability after your purchase which may take another 1/2 day to dry completely. We do our best to ship as quick as possible, usually USPS first class with delivery confirmation.
Refunds and Exchanges
Hi, due to the fact that these take so long to cut, sand and paint (numerous coats), and the material costs, my profit margin on them is rather low, so I'm sure you'll understand that the extra time and effort to handle returns is not feasible.

I do not offer returns unless I have blatantly misrepresented an item. Keep in mind that my items are all handmade. There are probably going to be flaws of some kind. I do try to describe items well and I include as many detailed pictures as I can. Please ask questions if you are unsure about something.
