Maintenance products



All our 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.

* Sizes of 400mm+ wide will be constructed of two planks glued together, a small joint line will be visible on the outside edge.

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!

Painted Text

With this option, not only do we still carve the timber, we then apply 2 coats of enamel sign writing paint into the engraved text. Black painted text is the most visible option to stand out against the colour of oak. The gold option is visible but not suited for smaller signs with smaller engraved letters.



Ours 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

Please note:

Transparent  (clear woodcream), which allows the wood to age naturally, but protects it and makes it water-repellent.


Our signs can come with a choice of ways to hang your signs.

Pre Drilled Holes – Pre Drilled hole space is generally 20x20mm in from each corner on 120/150/180 & 240mm high signs. On the 70 & 95mm signs the pre drilled screw holes are centered.

Hidden Keyhole Brackets – If you choose keyhole brackets for flush easy fitting, simply screw 2 or 4 screws (dependant on height of the sign) in the wall that the sign will be mounted and slide the sign onto the screws. (they need to protrude out slightly to fit into the keyhole brackets).

Closed eye hooks, we set these at 50mm in from each end. If you want different spacing let us know.

Open eye hoooks, we set these at 50mm in from each end. If you want different spacing let us know.



Each post comes with one end pointed, so you can either have the pointed end in the ground or above the sign as a pyramid top.

The softwood posts are tanalised and the oak posts are treated with the same oil as the signs.

We do not fix the posts to the sign due to problems with shipping and also to allow your own personal choice of fixing height.


Please note the order date of your sign as we have changed the products we use on the sign over the years to improve our service and quality of signs. If your sign cracks/warps or turns grey we can not be held responsible for this, as wood is a natural product. It may do this once exposed to sun and the weather.

Rubio Monocoat Woodcream

Maintenance instructions

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.

Rubio Monocoat Hybrid Wood Protector

Due to timber being a natural product, it will require to be treated on a regular basis to help keep it in prime condition. All our signs come pre treated but will still require further treatment.

We will still continue to supply Hybrid wood protector whilst available from the supplier.


Refreshing the colour and protection of wood treated with RMC Hybrid Wood Protector is done with the same product, in the original colour. Sanding will not be necessary!


01. Clean the surface with water. Allow to dry.

02. Apply the oil. (If you have painted text, especially white, avoid getting oil onto this as this could affect the colour of the paint).

03. Allow a few minutes to react.

04. Remove any excessive oil.


Morrells Danish Oil – All signs purchased prior to June 1st 2020

02. Depending on the age of your sign, light sanding may be required. 240grit or above, in the same grain direction to avoid scratches.

02. Apply the oil, with a rag. (If you have painted text, especially white, avoid getting oil onto this as this could affect the colour of the paint).

03. Allow a few minutes to react.
