We're all moved into our new commercial shop space and so excited about it! Now it's time to cut Heather loose and decorate this place. Here's a sneak peak of this minimalist sign we're putting on our reception desk.

About

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.

Payment
All Payments are required at time of purchase. Payments for your order can be made via PayPal, Credit and Debit cards.
Shipping
Shipping Method - USPS Priority, Fedex / UPS Ground and First Class USPS for our smaller office signs are the preferred methods of shipping our packages. You may expect a Hand Painted Family Name Sign to be shipped within 2-3 weeks and an Office Sign in 4 - 7 business days. During peak busy seasons such as Christmas, USPS can experience slight delays in shipping timelines. If this occurs then you are eligible to file a complaint with USPS for a shipping refund.

***Please allow an extra 6-10 days for international delivery.***

Rush Items - Yes, we do rush items upon request. If the rush is minor then we are able to speed up the delivery date most of the time without additional charges. Please send us a conversation before or at the time of purchase so we can let you know if a rush fee applies.

Shipping to a Gift Recipient - We are also able to send gifts directly to the recipient at another address. Simply give us the correct shipping address at the time of purchase and we will even include a gift note per your instructions.

Incorrect Address - If a incorrect address was written on the order and USPS returns the package to sender as undeliverable then there will be a $12.99 charge to cover the cost of re-shipping the item.

International Shipping- Any duty or additional fee charged from the country of the recipient is the responsibility of the customer. This charge does not originate from our company, nor USPS and we have no way of foreseeing or estimating this charge.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the labor intensive nature of our personalized products we are not able to offer refunds under any circumstance. After the order is placed you have 24 hours to cancel the transaction otherwise all sales are considered final.

We stand by our products and take our quality control process very serious to ensure you receive an item that meets the highest standards.Please let us know within two weeks of receiving the item if the product was damaged or incorrect in anyway. Damaged items may be replaced or repaired at the sole discretion of GaroSigns. Scratches or other small damage incurred from shipping may be repaired with a "touch up" kit. Please note these signs are hand painted on pine from the northwest. There may be some character to the wood which we believe adds to the naturalism of each sign. We do not offer refunds for the unique and beautiful characteristics of the wood. Occasionally the customer will be responsible to apply the touch up.
