Hi There!!

We are beyond excited to be back! After being kicked hard in 2020 with so many unexpected challenges, one after the other, we are beyond happy to be able to open again and create for you!

You will see our review stars reflect our struggles in November of 2020, that is just part of our journey and story. After being in a place with no choice but to cancel and refund hundreds and hundreds of our customers orders, we took some much needed time to heal as a family. We moved our family south, settled in, healed, and here we are!

Goodness, we can't wait to make some beautiful signs for you!! After everything we have gone through this past year, Zach and I just hope that our happiness and passion for creating our pieces shine through our little business here!

xo,
Zach & Sheena

About TheWoodsCollective

On Etsy since 2015

Hi guys! We are Zach and Sheena and this here is The Woods Collective.

We are so excited you found us!! The Woods Collective is where the original chevron address sign was founded. We created our pieces in hopes that we could offer a fresh modern spin in a market that had been growing stale for some time. With not much variety to choose from we wanted to add something exciting for shoppers, something new and inspiring. We wanted to offer pieces that brought a little bit of New England charm and a touch of modern flare to your home! Our signs hit the market in 2017 and took off at lightening speed, we haven't looked back since! Zach left his full time job to pursue our small business as his full-time passion, and Sheena pours her heart into every crevice of this business every day. Three years later and with over 6000 signs made and shipped, we still remain 100% handcrafted and so passionate about what we do. Your sign will always be made by Zach and Sheena, with their two hands, a lot of love, in a small town in Rhode Island right off the coast. We hope you enjoy browsing our shop, and also find a special piece that you love!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Like all exterior outdoor décor our plaques naturally require care to ensure their longevity. We provide care cards and instruction cards with every order to ensure each customers exactly how to care for their new wooden sign. Please know, that we are not responsible for natural weathering. We encourage all of our customers to care for their sign with love and take time as needed to re-seal as often as they feel needed.

Are the numbers metal?

No, they are wooden. Our numbers are hand cut on a scroll saw by Zach, hand painted, and sealed with our sealant as well. This is one of many reasons our plaques are so unique! Each one is handcrafted from start to finish, including the numbers.

Can I request a custom sign?

YES! Absolutely! Depending on the request this does affect your production time.

Can I rush my order?

We do offer a rush option. You will see this listed in our shop when available.

Can I change my shipping address after I place my order?

Yes, you can. However, we ask everyone to please double check all the details of your order before placing them. We try our best to keep up with messages and address edits, however we are not responsible for incorrect delivery locations. Thank you for your understanding!

Do we accept returns or refunds?

Returns are not accepted and refunds are not issued. Due to each and every single item being custom designed to your specific needs once the item is made, we are unable to reuse the materials or restock your sign to resell. If your sign arrives damaged please send us a message via Etsy Messaging. A claim will be filed with the shipping carrier. We know it can be extremely upsetting to receive a damaged item! We will do absolutely everything we can to ensure your concerns are handled promptly! We are grateful for every one of our customers, so each of your concerns are very important to us.

Weathering + Damage

While we carefully select our materials and design each sign with the intention of being placed outside, natural weathering will occur over time. We can not prevent this entirely. We are not responsible for any weathering or damage done to your sign. We do provide care instructions and if you feel at any time your beautiful Handmade sign needs a bit of extra love please refer back to our recommendations. Thank you!

Customs and Import Fees for International Orders

If you're purchasing from outside the US, your item may be subject to Import Taxes and Fees upon delivery. Please research specific import regulations for your home country if you're concerned about this added expense.

Please Take Time To Read The Details

We have put much time into making our lead times and product details very clear and available to view and understand before purchasing. We are not held responsible for time not taken to read our listing/product details, lead times, or shop policies. Thank you for your understanding!

Cancelations

Due to each sign being 100% customizable to your needs and completely made to order, we do not accept cancellations, exchanges, or returns once your order is processed. If you need to make changes to your sign, please message us directly.
