I worked with Emma at The Imperfect Wood Company in late November (2020) to design a custom directional sign for my Father's Xmas present. Four siblings, each with partners names and distance to where they live, along with a family name sign required in effect 5 signs and a stake / post. Turned out great and at a very reasonable price. Delivered about a week ahead of Christmas too. Can't fault that service. Excellent company to work with.
A guide to choosing the perfect sign for you...
All of our signs are rustic, however there are varying degrees of rusticity! If you love the rustic, aged, country cottage feel to a wooden sign, then purchase one of our Mini, Hanging, Long or Planked Rustic Signs. If, however you prefer a neater finish for your lettering but still want it to have a rustic feel, then purchase one of our Framed Wood Signs.
Mini, Hanging, Long & Planked Signs | Markings, cracks and nail holes are to be expected in these signs. The lettering painted on to your sign can have holes through the middle of it as the majority of pieces have holes and markings. This is such a wonderful and natural way to add character to your sign. One of a kind.
Framed Signs | We use ply boards, so there won't be any nail holes on the design/lettering area. They are then framed with reclaimed wood. We sand, cut and fix the framing to the sign, We do not attempt to cover or fix any holes or markings in the reclaimed wood as this is how our signs are full of character, creating unique and simply stunning, rustic signs.
Wooden Shapes | These are cut from old pine sheet off cuts, so will not have nail holes through them. They may have knots and markings.
