Well here we are again... our Christmas Countdown is in full swing! It started out slower this year but orders have literally exploded since Nov 1! We're doing our best to keep on top of everything and respond to emails in a timely manner! We're working around the clock (literally) to get all of these orders in and out in so that we can continue to accept holiday orders for as long as possible.
Our current order turn around time is anywhere from 2-4 weeks depending on what is being ordered. Anything requiring more than one colour of paint, Outdoor Signs, Bookends, larger pine signs, and photo products, as well as larger orders will take longer to complete. Something like a standard single coloured sign we can produce quite quickly - usually faster than the 2 weeks. If you have timing concerns please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to accommodate .
Our CURRENT HOLIDAY ORDER DEADLINE:
ALL Teacher gift orders - NOVEMBER 30th, 2018.
ALL large orders of more than 3 items - NOVEMBER 23rd, 2018.
For Western Canada with shipping - NOVEMBER 25th, 2018.
Shipping Outside of Western Canada - NOVEMBER 19th, 2018.
Orders that are able to be picked up - DECEMBER 2nd, 2018
These dates will guarantee that your items will get to you before Christmas (or by the last day of school for teacher gifts). After that date orders will be looked at on a day to day basis to see if we can complete them in time for you. We will try and re-evaluate our order load again closer to these dates to see if we're able to extend them one more time. If you're ever in doubt please just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will ALWAYS do our best to accept & complete ALL orders :)
And as always, thank you for choosing to support small and local businesses like us this holiday season!
I feel like I blinked and November disappeared! But that said - we are SORT OF caught up (as in we're not drowning... yet) - so we can make a few extensions to our deadlines!
I am again filled with appreciation at this years support! It just blows my mind and fills my heart to know that so many of you are choosing us for your gift giving needs. The kind words you send after receiving your orders make the long days and nights more than worth it. :)
Like every year we've reassessed our order load and it looks like we'll be able to take orders for a few more weeks. We are hoping to be able to rest and enjoy the holiday season with our families after the 19th, so will be working only as needed after that date. Please see below for all important dates!
For larger multiple item orders, pine signs, outdoor signs, book ends, photo products and any signs requiring additional painting - please contact us to ensure we can complete your order on time. Standard sized single coloured signs should be fine for ordering and delivery by the deadlines below.

Thank you again for all of your support & business this holiday season! We love what we do and words can't express how grateful we are :) Happy Holidays!
There is a TON you can do with these! Spell out your families names, inspirational words, simple single words like LOVE, HOME, or even your child's name in their room or playroom. The options are endless and we look forward to helping you create!
We are thrilled to finally introduce some of our new line to you! It's taken some time and some trial and error but we now have a few sample products to show you what we can now offer! These new painted signs offer the possibility of a splash of colour and a more rustic, distressed look! We use the same drawing program to create these new signs as with our original engraved versions, but we use it to create a stencil and then happily paint away - allowing for more colour combinations and distressing of the lettering!
We'll continue to introduce and share new products with you as we roll along, so please feel free to bring us your orders and ideas! We're happy to produce personalized pieces with this line as well. Look forward to creating another whole new line of goodies with all of you!
Welcome to our new Blog! So much has changed since we originally started the website we thought why not start fresh? Soooo we did. I always promise to try and do a better job of keeping this up to date with posts, but orders and emails always come first so it often goes by the wayside!
I have however committed to sending out a monthly newsletter which I'm really excited about! It will go out to those who have signed up and will have a monthly summary of new products, news, inside scoop, reminders and special promos. If you haven't joined us... be sure to come along for the ride! I promise it will be fun and worth your while!
