You love our long reclaimed wooden signs but have your own ideas for the wording or need a different size?  That's great, you're in the right place - you can create your own here.  Just select your preferred size, colour combination and enter your words.

I will put some designs together and send you a digital proof or you to approve via email.  This proof will give you an idea of layout and fonts only.  It cannot show you the actual wood being used for your sign.  Choose your favourite or guide me some more - there are no hidden charges for changes you want to make.  I will start making your sign as soon as you are happy with the design.

Markings, cracks and nail holes are to be expected in these signs.  Please bear this in mind when ordering, as the lettering added to your sign can have holes through the middle of it.  I try to avoid where possible but with the reclaimed wood I use, the majority of pieces have holes and markings.  For me, this is such a wonderful way to add character to your sign.  It really is one of a kind.

Please allow up to 5 days to receive your design layouts via email (up to 10 during busy periods - usually Oct, Nov,Dec).  Then allow the production time stated to receive your order.

Handmade - The Process...

Each sign is handmade in our Leicestershire workshop, known as The Barn.

We reuse old pallet wood and turn them into the most gorgeous framed and extremely rustic, signs.

They are hand cut, de-nailed and heavily sanded.  Markings, cracks and nail holes are to be expected in these signs.   This is such a wonderful way to add natural character to your sign. 

The sign is then heavily sanded and lettering is painted on. We use eco-friendly and high quality Farrow & Ball paints to paint our signs. The lettering is applied with the help of paper stencils (which we also make ourselves).

The back of the sign is simply stained, to give you an idea of how your sign started off (unless you opted for a double sided version)

Please note that colours can vary when viewed on a screen as opposed to in person.

Hanging Instructions...

Our Long Signs have sawtooth hangers on the back for easy wall hanging. We advise using wall anchors and screws designed for your particular type of wall.

Name plaque for our new holiday home

After wanting a holiday home in Cornwall for as long as I can remember we finally completed on our purchase in Dec 21. To celebrate the first thing I ordered was a name plaque. It arrived and I can’t tell you how pleased I am with it. It’s perfect. The shape of the wood, the lettering. Clearly a lot of thought had gone into it by the maker. We haven’t had time to take it down and put it up yet but this is it on my sideboard.

I wanted a tribute to my sister who is terminally ill, without it being obvious. We chose "Pages & Prosecco" for our snug. She loves reading and I love Prosecco. We loved the fact that the wood wouldn't be perfect. The colour is fab. The service was quick, efficient, polite and frankly I cannot fault my experience

Peter L.

Just Beautiful

Emma made a bespoke sign for my friends garden for her 40th. It was perfect and she loved it. Emma sent of a few designs and we chose a couple of the ideas to create exactly what we were looking for. Amazing quality, great price and fab communication xx

Custom long reclaimed sign - Martha’s Kitchen

We’re delighted with our sign for Martha’s Kitchen. Emma was very accommodating, taking time to help us find the perfect design, with attention to detail. We received our sign within the expected timescale and couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s beautiful. Truly excellent service.

Emerald City this way……..

Contacted The Imperfect Wood Company having found their website online. I wanted to know if they could do me a largish arrow sign with the above on it.
Straight away I was told no problem & there followed several emails & photos until the desired effect was achieved. All done for a very reasonable price & the sign is ‘perfect’ haha!

Judi T.

Absolutely perfect-exactly how I imagined it !!

Amazing sign

Great service from Emma, gave great advice on fonts and colours. Couldn't be happier with the final product, great quality.


We use reclaimed wood for all of our makes.  Markings, cracks and nail holes are to be expected in our signs.  Please bear this in mind when ordering, as the lettering added to your sign can also have holes through the middle of it.  This is such a wonderful and natural way to add character to your sign. They are then hand painted (using eco-friendly Farrow & Ball paints) with the help of stencils (which we also make ourselves from an eco-friendly paper material).
