Wooden Hanging Signs

At The Sign Maker we make a large range of hanging wooden signs in a lot of different timbers. Post and arms or hanging from brackets.

You choose the wood, size, font and maybe an image and our designers will create you a unique wood sign.

Post and Arm Wooden hanging Signs – These can be made in Oak, Iroko, Idigbo or Softwood. Oak is very strong, durable and heavy, but it is the most expensive. It is finished normally with a tough satin varnish or painted. It can, however, be finished with Osmo Oil. Iroko is another hardwood and is full of its own oil. We can only finish this type of wood with Danish Oil. Another hardwood is Idigbo. It is much lighter in weight but useful for a cheaper painted post. Finally, there is the softwood – not as durable but much cheaper. Need more info on different timbers?


Wooden Hanging sign with Bracket– The width of your sign will dictate which hanging brackets are suitable. If the hanging sign bracket is to go on a post the PG bracket, TZJECT 9 or a wrought iron bracket is ideal. We have a range of Wrought Iron Brackets made for us by a local blacksmith. But we also offer a huge array of other Brackets. The hanging wooden signs can be made in any of these timbers.


Ordering a Hanging wooden sign can be a little daunting so if you are confused or just need a little help contact us.

Wooden Framed Hanging Sign

Need a new eye catching business sign? Or even a nice colourful House Sign?


Aluminium composite is a good quality board, strong and durable, yet alone it looks rather uninteresting. It is however completely transformed when you surround it with a beautiful wooden frame and print your logo onto it!

Where a natural wood finish is required we use oak and for painted frames Accoya is a better choice.

Hanging House or Business Signs


This Hanging House Sign is made out of painted framed Accoya and Tricoya. Both long lasting and durable.

The inner panel of the house sign is made from Tricoya board. This is a wood-based board made using a high-performance resin. The outer frame and inner panel are spray painted using is a two-component polyurethane paint which is much more durable than standard brush-on paints. It is not only much tougher and longer lasting but is also more resilient to chemicals.
