Text Required

20 characters max for a small post and 30 characters max for a large post


We use the very finest English Oak, meaning our house signs are made to the highest of standards. Also, the timber is hand-selected by us to make sure it is clean and perfect for manufacturing into beautiful engraved wooden house signs. And all of our free-standing house signs come with one or two solid oak posts and in two sizes, giving you the flexibility for us to create you a house sign that suits your requirements.

Furthermore, we offer two sizes in our standard house sign range. Our Small – 10cm tall and our Large sign – 20cm 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 2.5cm thick and feature carved lettering 5cm tall – Please see the dimensions below:

Posts – If you choose either a single post or on twin posts, the sizes of the posts are 5cm square by 1 meter long, so there is plenty of timber to bury into the ground to secure your wooden free-standing house sign. If you require longer posts, please let us know at the time of order.

Personalise Your Free Standing House Sign
Our oak signs include your engraving. You can then choose to leave the lettering plain or have it paint filled. We offer White, Black and Grey. The paint application we supply is three coats of water-resistant acrylic paint, giving plenty of protection for the years to come.

Our range of free standing house signs are well sealed with water-resistant Liberon Superior Danish Oil as standard but you can choose to have our low maintenance Diamond-Coating for maximum protection.
