First the timber, plywood or mdf is hand-cut, routered & sanded. Then all signs are hand-painted with a base coat and the chosen top colour. They are then distressed to give the vintage/antiqued effect [if this is your choice], holes drilled or a sawtooth hanger added. Lettering is applied in vinyl so that we can use a large range of typefaces. A final top light sealant coat is added. No two signs will be identical. The wood will have some character features left in, small knots, dents and bumps. All signs are for ornamental & decorative use only. They are not treated for outdoor use.
