Custom pieces are made after consultation so we get just the right look and feel you are hoping for. A few things to consider when thinking about your custom design. In addition, of course, to your words, you need to determine what size and orientation for you sign. What is the overall feel; is it worn and pitted and further aged and distressed heavily? Is it a smoother finish with just a bit of age around the corners and natural areas? Are you looking for a painted or natural wood finish? What colors from our color chart for background and font? Do you have a font style in mind? I can provide different examples in a style of your choosing (handwriting, cursive, block, New Times Roman, Arial, etc.). After we've established the design, I will do a computer mock-up in black and white for proofing. Once approved and payment is accepted I will begin your sign.
