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.
