It all began with a sign...

Hi there and a sincere thank you for taking a look at my shop! Back in May of 2019 my younger brother asked if I could make him a sign for his friends wedding. I said "Sure!" - and the rest is history! I started out posting a photo of it on Facebook and Instagram, and got inundated with orders from friends, family, friends of friends, people I didn't know... etc. So as Christmas approached, I decided to list a few things on Etsy - HOLY WOW!! Things blew up, I hired some part-time help to get orders out... what an exciting time!

Today, we're mostly known for making custom metal signs, farm signs and other monogram name signs and address signs, but we can make custom signs with pretty much any business logo or design as well! We've done signs that realtors use as gifts for their clients, and we've done signs with pet names on them.

I'm looking forward to the coming weeks and months, and what comes as I grow this side-business into a bigger monster! :) Thank you to all who have ordered from me, and helped me grow this business!

-Ben (and Emmett (boy) and Thatcher (dog))

    Howdy! I've been making things for as long as I can remember - tree forts, wooden bird houses, crafty stuff for the 4-H shows, furniture, buildings, hot rods and motorcycles, aircraft parts - I've done a little of everything over the years.
