We offer two sizes in our standard house sign range. Our Small – 10cm tall and our Large sign – 20cm tall, allowing you to either have your house name engraved on one or two lines depending on how you want your house sign to look. The length of the sign plaque will vary due to the amount of lettering that is required. We will always allow plenty of room either side of your lettering to give your house sign a well-proportioned look. All of our sign plaques are 2.5cm thick and feature carved lettering 5cm tall – Please see the dimensions below:
You can choose either a single post or two oak posts to have your sign mounted. The sizes of the posts are 5cm square by the length you choose, given you plenty the option of having your sign close to the ground or plenty of clearance should you need it – to be above a wall or hedge for example.
Choose a post length of – 60cm tall or 1.2 metres tall. These posts sizes are the total height, include what you will need to put into the ground and also the area where the sign is mounted.
These signs come beautifully finished with standard engraving or paint-filled engraved lettering. You have the choice of Black, White or Grey painted lettering.
You also have the option of making the first letter of your engraved lettering larger than the rest of the characters if you wish. Please see the images below.
As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each oak sign is handmade from one piece of Air Dried Superior Grade English Oak. This Timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. You can choose to leave your sign untreated, finished in Superior Danish Oil or our low maintenance Diamond Coating finish. If you choose untreated your product will weather to a pale silver more quickly. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protect the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best. Diamond Coating is more glossy but a lot more harder wearing and only requires a top up once a year, however this depend on the weather and where the product is placed.
We would recommend twice a year if you want full protection. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here.
When it come to place your sign, we recommend you place 20 – 40cm into the ground and fill with concrete for stability and security reasons.
