We offer two sizes in our standard house sign range. Our Small – 15cm tall and our Large sign – 25cm 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 3.5cm thick and feature deeply carved lettering – 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 8cm square by the length you choose, giving you 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 – up to – 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
