Frequently Asked Questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Due to the size of our team and high order volume, we currently do not offer gift wrapping. Gift messages may be added in the "notes" at checkout.

Custom and personalized orders

Almost all of our items include personalization at no extra charge. A few items are non-personalized general decor. We also accept custom orders; please contact us first.

Available Colors

Colors available are a close match the the color swatch photo; however, there will always be variation due to what device the swatch is viewed.

For engraved items: the grain of the wood will naturally vary, which can affect the level of darkness of the engraving itself, as well as how the paint color appears after application.

Customer Service Availability

Our hours are Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm. We are committed to responding to all inquires and messages within 24 on business days. Since we are a family operation, weekends are dedicated to time with our children and therefore messages are not checked. Thank you for understanding.

Proof of Design

It is not customary for us to send a proof of design on every order. The designer will use their discretion to determine if a proof is needing to be sent to verify custom requests on an order. A proof may be requested by a customer at the time of purchase by adding a note when checking out; please note this can delay the overall turnaround time on your order.

I am more than happy with my purchase and the customization which really takes it over the top. It is beautiful and exceeded my expectations.

Beautiful and perfect!

This plaque was amazing. The detail and the color was perfect. It is very high quality material and I loved the fact I could personalize this for my needs. I was very happy with this purchase.

I purchased this on an evening around 8:40pm. The seller sent me a mock-up of the product around 10:30am the next day. I asked for a small adjustment that they made very quickly and sent back to me for review. I approved of it, and the product was shipped out maybe the next day. It arrived before the delivery window even opened, and I love it! I’m super excited to give it to my employee when he retires this week. Thank you for the excellent customer service and product! I plan to be a return customer!

Sign was beautiful! Delivery was quick.
