Once project mockups are completed a 50% deposit is due to start work. After we have finished, we will send you final photos of your completed project or pieces. The remaining amount of the total is due before we will package for shipping or at the time of delivery. Please let us know before hand if this will be a problem.
All orders will be sent as quickly as possible. However, please allow a few days for processing. Once your custom piece has been approved, we apply an extra coat of clear for extended life against the elements. After it has thoroughly dried it will be packaged and ready to send out. We ship primarily through the Postal Service using First Class or Priority Two Day Mail. Orders are shipped out Monday – Friday. All of our larger items will ship by UPS.
If you wish to upgrade shipping please send us a message previous to purchasing so we can adjust shipping charges accordingly.
We do ship internationally. Due to size of some metal letters and other items, please send a message regarding the purchase of a letter and your location so we can calculate shipping charges. Thanks for your understanding on International Shipping. All international shipping is shipped by UPS as the USPS is not able to provide tracking outside of the United States.
We will send you an e-mail or ‘conversation’ as soon as your item has been shipped.

Please examine the product photos carefully. We do our very best to photograph the products as true as possible, although lighting and computer monitors vary. If you are unsatisfied with the outcome of your custom product, please let us know prior to purchase so that we can work something out. All sales are final – your purchase constitutes your approval of the photos included in the listing. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any concerns you may have.
Our products are handmade, not factory made in some other country. For this reason there are minor imperfections and differences that make our products unique. There are especially differences in distress, rust, and overall finish- no two pieces can ever be exactly alike. We are firm believers in Wabi-sabi aesthetics (the art centered on the acceptance of imperfections). All sales are final on custom work.
We reserve the right to pass on any project that does not seem within our scope of expertise.
We do not install signs for liability reasons. Once we deliver or ship your sign it is your property. We suggest a licensed and insured signage installer install our signs.

Each piece has been clear coated with several layers of lacquer to resist natural elements. Please note that these pieces are made out of mostly recycled mild steel and that they will rust or continue to rust if not properly maintained. While some people enjoy watching their metal work naturally rust over time, it is suggested that you coat your piece every few seasons to prevent additional rusting, especially if it will be outside.
Rust is a completely natural process. Temperature, Humidity, Acidity, Sunlight, Salt, Length of exposure, etc, are all a combination of factors that affect the rust outcome and unique finish to our products. No two rust finishes can ever be the same. We work hard to try to achieve the look that you are after, but please bear in mind that most of rust process is out of our control and completely in the hands of Mother Nature, which is what makes each piece 100% unique.
All of our products are 100% recyclable. We use only 100% non-CFC containing paints.
