Ordering Procedures for Hand Painted Wooden Signs

1. Start your order by reviewing our hand painted wooden signs web site to select a sign size and shape from among our standard wood plaques, solid cedar plaques, cedar two-sided signs, and custom signs. All signs are priced as listed. Sign Options like colors, borders, corners are additional.

2. Email us at sales@handpaintedwoodsigns.com with your shipping address, sign size/shape, custom text, font choice, and any sign options to be brush lettered on your sign. Also, if you want us to follow a particular hand lettered font style you see on our site, mention the name on the sign. Visit our Fonts Page for guidance on selecting a hand painted font. We do not make a computerized layout for review for standard size and shape signs. Instead, we recommend you advise us on a sign you like on our site in the many galleries or on Facebook and Instagram @handpainted_woodsigns

3. With sign details confirmed, we will email you an invoice containing a link to Paypal or Square. ALL SIGN ORDERS ARE VERIFIED BY EMAIL before invoicing is started assuring you of ordering exactly what you want, with all questions resolved.

4. Make payment using whatever credit card you wish. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express via Paypal or Square. We accept personal checks and begin work on your sign ONLY when your check has cleared our account. You do not need nor have to create a Paypal or Square account. Just enter your payment information to the invoice. You will receive a confirmation email from us that payment has processed.

For Custom Size/Shape/Added Art Signs Only

For custom size and shape signs only, we will prepare a computerized layout for your review and approval but only after the invoice is paid. The layout is a visual guide for the lettering artist. It is not used for production. We do not prepare a proof or layout for standard sized wooden house plaques or cedar one-sided signs or cedar double-sided hanging signs. No exceptions, as it is extra work because the computer layout is not used in our hand crafted process.


Secure Invoicing & Payment

HandPaintedWoodSigns.com uses Paypal and Square for payment processing. Enter the payment info online or you may call us to provide your payment information. You do not need a Paypal or Square account. Please see our complete sale terms and conditions

NOTE: Production of your sign is scheduled ONLY after payment is received. Any questions? Email us at sales@handpaintedwoodsigns.com
