You like the look of our reclaimed wooden, hand-painted signs but can't find the right wording in our collection?  No worries, you can create your own here.  Just select your preferred size, colour combination and enter your words.  We recommend only a short sentence on these signs otherwise they will look overcrowded and the texture of the wood may interfere with the lettering.

We reuse old pallet wood and turn them into gorgeous rustic signs.  They are hand cut, de-nailed and heavily sanded.  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.   This is such a wonderful way to add character to your sign.  It really is one of a kind.  They are then primed and painted using Eco-Friendly paints by Little Greene and Farrow & Ball.

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.

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.

There are various hanging options, such as chunky rope, rusty wire, sawtooth hangers on the back, stakes, or no fixings at all.  These signs can be placed outside if we add a sealant to them.  Imperfections are to be expected in our products, such as nail holes, cracks and dings.  We love the texture and character this brings, and hope you do too.

  • Size:  14x14cm, 25x14cm (this this can vary slightly due to it being reclaimed wood)
  • Colour: Various options
  • Fixings: Chunky rope hanger, Rusty wire, Sawtooth hanger
  • Maker: Designed and made in Leicestershire, UK by Emma
  • Made to order – please allow for the production time above

The sign is perfect and came really quickly!

Lovely personalised products

Great options for personalising products, good, speedy and prompt service. I bought a wooden plaque which I think makes a lovely and meaningful present. Also good to support small and creative businesses.

Wonderful Products

We were absolutely delighted with our plaques, which were clearly made with care and attention. Thank you! They are brilliant!

Great service

Emma went above and beyond to make me a sign to match others I had purchased in the past.
The signs are well made and they arrived promptly. There was also great communication over the design.
If I need wooden signs again in the future, the Imperfect Wood Co. will definitely be my first port of call.

Built a garden room, made mainly with timber. Looked for a sign to hang inside and this was perfect. Personalised and a choice of colour. Looks great. Will certainly recommend!

High quality product and service

I love my personalised sign! I got a great selection of proof ideas to choose from and communication was excellent. Easy ordering process and delivery was within the timescale advised. Great ethos too. Highly recommended!


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.  One of a kind.  They are then hand painted with the help of stencils (which we also make ourselves)

If you have a specific idea in mind, please get in touch
