Review – Wooden Hanging Sign



Just to let you know that the post and sign I ordered have been delivered safely today, complete and undamaged. I am delighted to finally receive them! They are beautiful! Many thanks for all your help and advice, it is much appreciated. Please thank all staff involved.

 Many thanks, Lisa
To order your Wooden hanging Sign first add the wooden sign to the shopping cart (Making sure it is double-sided if you need it to be) and then add the post.

Slate Signs


This Slate Sign has been made using two colours. We used a drop shadow effect to make your House sign really stand out and even look 3D!

We use natural slate with a smooth, but not highly polished surface. This shows the markings and grain of the slate – each piece is different.



Look at the markings on this one – Beautiful!

The slate is cut onsite to any size you require. We can also polish both sides for double-sided slate signs. We can even get creative with your own image!


To order our 3D effect Slate Sign just the link below and in the font box put “Drop Shadow effect.” You can also download your own image when ordering online!

Thank you – Memorial



I would wish to thank you for the plaque provided. It looked terrific and is obviously well made. I have mounted the item on a gate post and it really looks the part.

Also I would thank you for the mounting screws with head covered as per the plaque background so that they matched. A very nice bonus which is appreciated.

All in all, well done, a smashing job and a fitting memorial to me Aunt.

Thank you again.

Best wishes

What is snow?


Snow occurs when water vapours in the air freeze before they can turn into water. This happens when the temperature in the clouds is very cold. Snowflakes are made up of crystals of ice that have formed around bits of dirt in the air.



The snowflakes start out very small and grow. Each snowflake is different and might contain up to 200 crystals!!

It is a myth that it needs to be below zero to snow. In fact, in this country, the heaviest snowfalls tend to occur when the air temperature is between zero and 2 °C!!
