Shop News!

Aimee Weaver_63

The snow is falling outside my window, Thanksgiving is just around the corner (tomorrow!), and my studio is warm and cozy. It doesn’t get much better. I have some shop news today!

Because of the volume of orders we’ve been receiving for our signs, I am now fully booked for Christmas, and the earliest I can ship current sign orders is beginning to mid-January.

If you are too late to place an order for a sign, you can still order a gift card from my website! The gift card is immediately emailed to you after it’s purchased, so if you are a last-minute shopper like me, this is the perfect solution.

And I’m having a SALE in my Etsy shop! I’m phasing out of my t-shirts and if you purchase a shirt today through Sunday, you will receive a FREE 8×10 print of your choice from my shop!

If you’ve been waiting to buy a t-shirt, this weekend is the perfect time to do it!! I can’t guarantee that all sizes will be available and once they are gone, they will be gone FOR GOOD!! I’ve also just added some of the shirt in extra large!

Happy Thanksgiving friends!!

  1. Is there a code to use in the shop for the buy a shirt get a print free? I’m trying to do it, but not seeing a code to use. Also, can I buy more than one shirt and get those prints free too, or just one shirt and one print? thanks 🙂

  2. How are you able to keep up with/stay on top of all of your orders? Do you have wood pieces that you’ve already sanded and prepped for painting? Where do you go to find your wood pieces? Also, do you plane the top off of your wood pieces to where the surface is completely smooth or just sand? What have you found is the most efficient way to attach boards together to make larger sign? And what sort of hardware is the most reliable for hanging the signs, as they’re heavy! Sorry about all of the questions, but I look forward to hearing back from you and learning from you. Your work inspires me!!

    • Hi Kerri! I’ll try to answer your questions as best I can! I stay on top of orders by keeping weekly calenders where I’ll write down my orders so I know how many I have scheduled for the week. We find our wood by working with people in our area who tear down old barns and we keep a supply on hand. We sometimes just sand and sometimes plane the wood, depending on how rough it is. We attached the boards together on the back with thin strips of wood. We use heavy duty sawtooth hangers that are screwed into the back of the signs for hanging. I don’t have pieces that are prepped – each sign is made when it’s ordered. I hope that helps!

      • Also, do you use old hardware, sawtooth hangers, nails, screws, etc? Or do you generally add something to age the hardware and make it look old?

  3. Thanks so much! Your answers are so helpful. Do you find that the wooden slats that hold the boards together interfere with the sawtooth hangers screwed to the back of the sign? For example, does the sawtooth hanger come out far enough from the sign to compensate for how far the old slats keep the sign from the wall once it is hung? Thanks so much!

      • Oh, my goodness!! I have never even thought to do it that way! Are your thin strips of wood also old, or is it easier to find those new? Also, when your lettering is too big to print out on a regular 8.5×11 sheet of paper, what do you do? Do you have them printed elsewhere? (For tracing on to the wood purposes). And how much time on average do you give yourself to finish a sign? Thanks for being so patient with my questions and giving great, detailed answers! I’m loving learning from you!

  4. The thin strips are new wood. I use Microsoft Publisher to create the templates and print on multiple sheets of paper when the designs are larger than 8.5×11. Time varies greatly depending mostly on how much lettering there is.
