Our personalised house signs include:
Wooden house signs
We offer a wide choice of bespoke wooden signs, in styles to suit every property. All wooden signs are made entirely from FSC Certified European Oak. Whether freestanding or wall mounted, our wooden house signs will grace the approach to any home. The sign board is chamfered to give a smooth, rounded edge; and the vertical supports (in a choice of styles) can hold multiple sign boards if desired.
Hanging house signs
Our classic hanging wooden signs are supplied at your choice of height, and can be single or double sided. Available in either oak or oak with slate, they come with high-grade stainless steel fittings. To extend an existing wooden sign, just add an extra hanging sign board!
Oak and slate signs
Our slate and oak signs combine the best of these maintenance friendly materials to give a modern, sophisticated look. We create hanging signs or freestanding signs (single or double post); and include bespoke lettering, logos and decoration.
Engraved slate house signs
Engraved slate signs are remarkably versatile, suiting modern and traditional properties alike. They are a popular choice for driveway gates and doorways, and come pre-drilled, ready to fix. We also supply a choice of screw caps to hide the stainless steel screws supplied.
These robust oak signposts are ideal for estates and visitor attractions. Customised with a choice of typefaces, they are supplied on sturdy posts up to 3000mm high.
Rusty Metal signs
New in 2019, we have launched a new range of rusty metal signs. The metal is formally known as Corten steel. These signs proved to be a huge hit at shows last summer and provide a beautiful rustic sign. If you decide to make the rusty metal signs freestanding, we don't recommend applying UV protection wood oil to the oak posts. These signs are entirely maintenance free.
Stainless Steel Signs
Our Stainless Steel signs are perfect for a completely maintenance free alternative for a contemporary property entrance.
Our promise of quality
We use prime grade, air dried European Oak sourced from a local supplier. Quality is uncompromised. Lettering and designs are engraved into the wood to varying depths – not laser cut into the surface.
Once the glue has cured and the sanding process is finished, we finish all our handcrafted wooden signs with OSMO's UV-protection Wood Oil. The oil slows the weathering process and resists algae and fungal decay. If you would rather leave the timber untreated, it will soon ‘silver-down’ to a beautiful grey tone.
Please also refer to our terms page for more details about materials and the weathering process.
