Signage - Custom Orders Frequently Asked Questions

Signage - Custom Orders Frequently Asked Questions

We specialize in vintage, antique, farmhouse style signs!

We love custom orders! Just send us an email ( with your idea and approximate size, and we'll be glad to work with you if we can. We make custom signs ranging from 4” square up to 12” x 24.”

Lettering: all of our signs feature lettering that is inked with permanent ink or painted instead of vinyl lettering that most other sign-makers use. We cut, sand, and paint the wood, and then customize it utilizing Iron Orchid Designs, transfers, stamp sets, and moulds and/or our Cricut machine. Once your handmade sign is complete, we seal it with Pixie Dust Hemp Paste Finishing Wax or Wise Owl Matte Varnish. 

Sign Imperfections: because our signs are made from Sande or Birch plywood boards (not manufactured MDF), there will be knots and other imperfections that aren't considered "defects". Also, if your custom sign includes any castings from our IOD moulds, please note that we use IOD Air Dry Clay. Over time the Air Dry Clay may shrink and crack a little. We believe this adds to their rustic charm, beauty and uniqueness, making each item a true work of art. Be assured that we hand-select each board and do everything in our power to ensure its structural integrity.

Non-Refundable: we want you to be 100% satisfied with your new sign; however, because it is custom designed and made, we cannot offer any refunds or exchanges. Full payment is required for each custom order before we can begin making your sign.

We try to complete and ship (or have ready for pick up) all orders within 1 -2 weeks; however, please note that during holidays, it may be a little longer so please plan accordingly, especially if it is a gift.
