After the sale . . .

VERY seldom do I get to see how the items that I make and sell end up being used in their new homes.  So it’s a real treat when I do get to see pictures of what people did with the things they bought from me.  Here are a few custom ordered signs that I made, and how they look in their new homes.

A friend ordered both of these.  One for a baby shower gift for a relative, and one for her own personal family photo wall that she was starting now there her boys are getting married and having babies.

I just mailed out two recent etsy custom sign orders.  Working on eight more right now, and have a couple more to get done before Christmas.  

Who KNEW that ‘sign making’ would become such a huge part of what I do?!?! 


CUSTOMIZED / PERSONALIZED SIGNS now available in my etsy shop

Customized signs are available to order again in my etsy shop!    

See the listing  HERE  for ordering specifics.

Since I can only show 5 pictures in the etsy listing, this post is just an extension of the listing, to show more examples; and how some of the signs look displayed in a store setting:

As you can see in this picture, the WHITE lettering just doesn’t show up as well as the black.  But I CAN do white lettering.

I use 2″ letter stamps for these signs.  How BIG a custom ordered sign will be TOTALLY depends upon how many letters it contains.

With this letter set that I use, there is NO CHOICE of capital vs. lower case letters.  There is ONE version of each letter only, as shown; and all the same height.

My custom signs can be created to suit just about ANY decor style!  Shabby chic, folk art primitive, beach cottage chic, Paris apartment chic, country cottage, French Country, whimsical or elegant!

It’s a MULTI-STEP process.  Cut, sand, paint basecoat, paint topcoat, sand, letter, sand, touch up edges, varnish!  whew!

I can do ANY color.  It’s BEST if you can SHOW ME the color you want; preferably select your color from what you see amongst these sample signs.

One or two lines?  Depends on the words you want and HOW they will fit best.  Signs LONGER than 36″ will be quite spendy to ship.  I don’t mind MAKING them if you don’t mind the high shipping cost.  I only charge EXACT shipping cost; and refund any overage paid on shipping after order has shipped.

Shades of blue.

Primitive and cottage colors.

More color examples.

Same lettering; different size borders.  I will usually make the custom signs with a border like the size shown on the red pantry sign.  If you want LESS or MORE of a border, just ask!

Wider border.

Want a GROUP of signs?  Like above, or Live, Laugh, Love below?  I can do that.

A few SYMBOLS are also available, and priced the same as the letters @ $2.00 each.  There is the above fleur de lis.  A heart. A star. A starfish and a scallop shell.



Two stars.


More color samples and size variations.

The ‘SWEET SHOP’ font is NOT available.  (sorry!)
