All our wooden signs are made from hand picked Prime A Grade European Oak, the text is carved out using our CNC machine creating the perfect finish. Please note that as Oak is a natural timber the grain will vary from sign to sign. In European oak you will get a variety of grain changes, muldullary rays and small knots.
Tricoya is a exterior MDF product that comes with a 50 year guarantee, once painted it will last even longer. There is no grain, with Tricoya, so it will have a flat appearance on the surface.

A CAD drawing will be emailed after you placed your order to show exactly how your sign will look, once this has been approved we cannot accept returns.
We have selected the most commonly asked fonts as an easy option to pick from, however if you would like a font we have not got listed then please get in contact to see if we have it available. Images of the fonts to chose from are in the image gallery to view.
Please be aware, the more text you have the smaller it becomes, so choose the correct size!
With this option, not only do we still carve the timber, we then apply 2 coats of paint into the engraved text.
Ours Oak signs are treated with Rubio Monocoat Woodcream to give protection from the elements.
- Ultimate Protection
- 100% ecological, 0% hazardous substances (VOC)
- Maintenance free
- Water-repellent with long-lasting pearl effect
Transparent (clear woodcream), which allows the wood to age naturally, but protects it and makes it water-repellent.
All our painted signs are finished with Bedec exterior water based paint
Hanging signs come with open eye hooks installed into the top of the sign, these are spaced to match our own hanging brackets. If you purchase without one of our hanging brackets we will set the eye hooks 50mm in from each end.
For oiled oak Signs
After about 5 years, the pearl effect (water-beading) will gradually diminish and treatment will be required.
STEP 1. The wood must be cleaned with a mixture of 10% Rubio Monocoat Exterior Wood Cleaner and water. After the use of Rubio Monocoat Exterior Wood Cleaner, clean the surface by using water at low pressure and a soft brush; there is no need for sanding. Consult the accompanying technical data sheet before use.
STEP 2. Stir Rubio WoodCream well and dilute it with Rubio WoodCream Softener in a ratio from 9 parts Rubio WoodCream and 1 part Rubio WoodCream Softener to max. 1 part Rubio WoodCream and 1 part Rubio WoodCream Softener in order to achieve the desired result.
STEP 3. Apply it carefully and evenly, to the vertical surface with a block brush suitable for water-beading products, in the direction of the wood. Work in zones of 3 to 4 boards in the direction of the wood fibre. It’s best to work wet in wet. Spread out the product in one go with the application brush.
If you want a different design layout, size, shape, then feel free to ask. Simply email a basic design to use and we can create a CAD image to show how it could look. We can also add pictures on request.
Delivery is usually 7-10 working days from confirmation of the image but in busy periods this may be longer. This information will be emailed to you with your CAD drawing.
