    Dear Make Me Something Special,

    I would just like to say how absolutely delighted we are with the number of signs you made for us. They are now in situ and with the black lettering look very special indeed.

    I will be back to you for anything along these lines I need in the future.

    Kindest regards,

  2. Ben Griffiths

    Hi Ben

    The sign arrived yesterday and it looks great.

    Thank you!

    Can’t wait to get it put in to position.

    Kind regards

    Hi Ben,

    The sign was a great success, thank you!

    Are you able to keep the artwork on file for when we make another order?

Finish: Untreated, Superior Danish Oil or Diamond Coating

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. If you have chosen your product to be left untreated, your product will fade to a pale silver in time. We recommend a pressure wash or a sand once a year to remove any moss or unwanted mess on the timber and then treat with an exterior oil to slow down decay.

Danish Oil – If you have chosen Danish oil we recommend you continue to treat your product with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

Dimond Coating – If you have chosen Dimond Coating, top up kits can be purchased on our website or over the phone. We would recommend you treat your product once a year minimum. Twice a year if you want to maintain full protection.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

Air-dried oak: Your product has been made using Air-dried timber. This is has been seasoned for outdoor conditions. Do not keep exterior products indoors.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.

Product Description: Premium Free Standing House Signs

Thicker and stronger for stability and long life.

These are our luxurious handmade premium free-standing house signs. Created by hand from scratch to order using only the highest quality, hand-selected Superior Grade English Oak, these beautiful hard-wearing wooden house signs are made to considerable thickness for durability. We spare no expense when it comes to these beautiful engraved wooden signs.

If you want something that is of superior quality, made with exceptional attention to detail, to a truly stunning flawless finish, you will not be disappointed. These really are the finest and mightiest wooden house signs available on the market. All our free-standing house signs come already assembled, using traditional joinery techniques making them extremely hard wearing and all screw heads covered over using oak plugs. There is nothing to do to the sign except get it in the ground.

Each sign plaque is made from a single solid piece of 3.5cm thick oak, mounted on huge 8cm square oak posts. The post are 1.2 metres in length giving you plenty of timber to put in the ground and keep them sturdy once in place. Longer posts are available on request if required.

Sign Sizes:

We offer 2 sizes, small and large, giving you the flexibility of having your house name on 1 or over 2 lines if required. Either size sign can then be fitted with 1 or 2 solid oak posts allowing you to customise your sign to suit your requirements. Please see below for the sign dimensions:

The length of the sign plaques will vary due to the amount of lettering required. Anywhere between 50cm and 1 meter depending on how many characters there are. We will always allow plenty of room either side of your lettering to give your house sign a well proportioned look.

Engraving and Colour Options:

All of our oak house signs are beautifully engraved with deeply cut lettering which can be left plain or you can choose to have the lettering paint filled with either Black, White or Grey weatherproof acrylic paint. Ideal for making your house or business sign more visible when it is dark. You also have the option of making the first letter of your engraved lettering larger than the rest of the characters if you wish for no extra charge. Please see images.


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. 

Assembled or Unassembled:

You can choose to have your free standing house sign fully assembled ready to place or flat packed. Fitting the sign to the post is a very simple process requiring only a couple of bolts. With fully assembled signs, screw fitting holes will be covered over with solid oak plugs.

Placing your Sign:

When it come to place your sign, we recommend you place 30 – 50cm into the ground and fill with concrete for stability and security reasons.
