Our Story

It all started in 2006, whilst innocently making a present for my wife (a happy wife happy life sign), an idea was born! I wondered if there was a market for British made gifts?

We launched our business in 2007 with the idea that we could create unique, handmade and traditionally styled gifts. We loved the look of words on aged wood and decided on a path that soon became ever so popular...


Signs, plaques, quotes, names, sayings, personalisation the opportunities were endless and as our core product was natural wood we were able to be so versatile and creative.

Fourteen years on and we continue to be the market leader in producing handmade wooden signs in the UK. With a merry band of rustic craftsman, we continue to make thousands of signs every week for both our retail and wholesale customers. Our processes are the same as day one, real wood, hand crafted and lovingly finished so every product is unique.

With 2019 being our most successful we look forward to launching our new website in 2020 making our products even more exciting to buy and give as gifts. We love what we do and continue to build a business based on traditional values, environmentally friendly principles with the underlying aim of making people smile when they receive one of our individual gifts.

Thank you so much for supporting our business,

Austin Sloan
