Wooden Sign Carving

We have extensive experience with wooden sign carving

What is the process to get a hand carved wooden sign?

    • Contact – details, price on agreement, installation agreement
    • Initial design sent to customer (quicker approval leans towards quicker delivery)
    • 30% deposit on confirmation of design
    • Carving begins
    • update of progress
    • Photo emailed of finished piece for client to sign off or physically sited if preferred
    • Final payment made
    • Delivery with track and trace number – or installed on site as agreed

What can I bring to the design of the wooden sign?

Hand carved signs can be as different as the people who commission them. If you have a look through this website you will see I have extensive experience relief carving objects, animals, interests, flora and all sorts into the wood. There is no reason that these aspects of the design cant be brought into the design of your wooden sign. The sign can also be made to look rustic or worn if that is your desire.

What materials are needed for the sign?

If you have a piece of wood that is special to you, your family or your business we are able to use this for the sign. Otherwise wood can be provided. As you can see in the gallery we have used a collection of native and imported timbers. It’s always a nice challenge when someone brings a usual species of wood to turn into a sign.

What are the installation arrangements?

I have had extensive experience installing wooden signs of every size. As you imagine to hang a batch sign is a very different experience to installing an eight meter wooden sign for a vineyard. On initial contact we can discuss installation and if you have someone you would prefer to install the sign we don’t mind, whatever is going to make it easier to get the sign installed.

We deliver and install in Auckland through to Waikato and can arrange for someone to install in other parts of the country”

Do you offer lettering/engraving?

We also offer lettering/engraving services if that is all you are looking for. I am available to come on location; job and time dependent. There are various techniques to make the letters stand out either carving out the letters or relief carving around the letters so they are raised. Often we will paint the text to create a more readable text.

    We are desperately after someone to engrave and also carve up a bit of a design on our family friends Plaque in replacement of a headstone.
    We have the peice of wood (kauri)
    We want to keep the raw edges to keep the natural look.
    Rough sizing would be:
    30cm wide
    30cm long

    What would be a rough estimate in pricing?
    Also where are you based?

    Ki ora, i was wanting a carved sign for my grandfathers gravesite. To sit at the bottom of him as he will have a head stone. Wanting ” Kawau Allen “written with Maori patterning incorporated somehow… on sides or border maybe depending on price. I really can’t afford it but it would be so special as my grandfather is the first one buried in February this year at a new whanau cemetery on my aunties land in kaungaroa. What’s the price range I would be looking at?
