About

The Paper Place And More Is A Family Company

Welcome to our little corner of Etsy. It sure is a great big world in here but I'm glad you found us! The Paper Place started in March of 2014 selling 3D card stock high heel shoes filled with Hershey's Kisses to friends and family. They were a huge hit. Before long, people started asking what other 3D paper items we might offer and we just sort of took off from there! We've recently added several vinyl creations to our list of products. Our garden signs have quickly become our biggest seller.

In 2016, The Paper Place and More has grown tremendously. With the added growth, additional help was required so my husband came on board to help me. He works as my shipper and material handler (doing things such as cutting, sanding and staining wood). Currently, he is part time but our goal is to continue growing so that he can become full time. Being a family operation has been fantastic. We are not only spending time together as a family building something we love but recently we took over guardianship of two of our grandson's ages 4 and 5 and so we are able to have our grandbabies with us while we work. They even like to help Papa when he's cutting wood. They also like to sit at the table and "paint like Grandma".

Frequently asked questions
Outdoor Wood Sign Materials Information

Our outdoor wood signs are built to last. They are created using the best quality supplies available. They are first painted using high quality acrylic paint which is sealed using clear coat enamel. Once the layers are dry, we use commercial grade outdoor vinyl for text and graphics.

For staked signs, the metal stake is adhered using industrial strength adhesive made to withstand inclement weather. In addition, we're now adding a screw.

For hanging signs, there is a 1/2" or 1" hole drilled into each of the top corners for easy hanging. We do not offer the hardware for hanging, however, it can be purchased at your local hardware, home improvement or other big box store.

Outdoor Sign Sizing (Staked)

We offer four sizes of outdoor wood signs as follows:

* Our smallest sign is 8.5" wide x 3.5" tall (wood portion) and then 8.5" wide x 12" tall with the metal stake attached.

* Our medium sign is 12" wide x 3.5" tall (wood portion) and then 12" wide x 12" tall with the metal stake attached.

* Our large sign is 12" wide x 9" tall (wood portion) and then 12" wide x 18" tall with the metal stake attached.

* Our extra large sign is 24" wide x 9" tall (wood portion) and then 24" wide x 18" tall with the metal stake attached.

Outdoor Sign Sizes (Hanging)

* Our smallest sign is 8.5" wide x 3.5" tall and has 1/2" holes drilled into each of the top corners.

* Our medium sign is 12" wide x 3.5" tall and has 1/2" holes drilled into each of the top corners.

* Our large sign is 12" wide x 9" tall and has 1" holes drilled into each of the top corners.

* Our extra large sign is 24" wide x 9" tall and has 1" holes drilled into each of the top corners.

Knot Holes and Surface Blemishes

All of our wood products, including indoor and outdoor signs, are created using pine wood. Due to the nature of the wood there will be variances in knots, surface blemishes, etc. These discrepancies add to the overall uniqueness and charm of each piece. Please note, when choosing a base color for your wood pieces the lighter the color chosen the better chance there is of knot holes and surface blemishes showing through the paint.

Please note that colors can vary slightly from the mock ups you receive as different monitors on phones, computers and tablets have different settings.

Glass Product Care Instructions

We send vinyl care instruction cards with every glass item that leaves our shop. In order to ensure lasting results with glass items purchased please use the follow guidelines for care:

* Gentle Hand Wash ONLY. Do NOT scrub.
* Do NOT allow to soak in sink.
* Do NOT use in microwave.
*Wrap in tissue paper when storing to avoid scratching

Can My Outdoor Wood Sign Stay Out All Year Long

This is a question each individual customer really needs to answer for themselves. If you live in an area with harsh winters we do recommend bringing them in for the season though we've had many customers who have left their signs out all year long without incident. As with any outdoor decor item, the more it sits out in harsh weather, the faster the item will wear.
