Have a great Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Village Green Signs.

Christmas House sign ordering dates

As Christmas approaches many of our customers miss out on the Christmas delivery for their House signs. Unlike many products our signs are all individually hand crafted, which takes longer to produce, and normally at Christmas the demand is so huge, we are unable to take orders after the middle of November.

Tree & Decs 640x360This year we are keeping well on top of our sign orders on the run up to Christmas, so we are releasing our “Christmas Ordering Dates”.

When you visit our house signs website you will see a large selection of examples to choose from, any of these designs can be crafted to suit your needs and can be made on a sign of your choice. The price is dependent on the size of house plaque chosen and then you can add your text and choice of design.

Personalised House Signs

Hand Painted Personalised Signs

Throughout the years we have offered a personalised service for our house signs. This allows our customers to tell us exactly what they require, on their personalised signs.

Special Commissions

We have many examples of our special commissions that we have produced for our customers. After the feedback from a very happy customer, we thought that we would share the sign that our artist created for them. This plaque was painted from a picture, that the customer supplied for their personalised sign, which held special memories for them of a certain cafe that looked out on the Brooklyn bridge.

special commission

This is just one of many signs that we have produced from a supplied picture, and included the customers address details, along with their chosen image, all produced on a weatherproof resin sign, which has the appearance of traditional cast iron.


 

Special Commission

Our customers comments after receiving the above sign.
“My husband & I moved to a small village with a beautiful old mill, and we wanted to incorporate this into our house sign, so we sent some photographs along with our sign order. Can we just say how delighted we are with the result, the sign well exceeds our expectation, as the artist has captured every single detail. We would highly recommend Village Green Signs, thank you!”

Pets painted from pictures

A lot of our special commissions are for pets, where customers usually choose a raised motif from our Dog signsCat signs or Horse house signs page on our website, and then ask for us to paint them in their animals colouring. But again we do offer a fully personalised service, where a special commission can be produced from a picture, as shown with this lovely Tibetan terrier below.

Making a house a home

Making a house a home

What makes a house a home? Homeliness is all about the little personal touches, the individual details that make a home unique. A home should be a haven and feel warm, safe, comfortable and welcoming. When we have been living in a place for a long time, seeing the place with fresh eyes can be a challenge. It is easy to create homely harmony by making a few simple adjustments to what is already there and by introducing some new ideas.

 Softly, softly

Create the perfect nest with soft, warm textures. Leather sofas sometimes feel cool and clinical – for a sumptuous, sensual place to relax it’s hard to beat a suede or velvet upholstery finish on living room furnishings. With easy, free delivery choosing a new sofa set represents minimal hassle. Go for designs with deep, generous seating and well-stuffed cushions. Invest in some giant scatter cushions, as they always look so much more upmarket than the standard sizes that come with sofas. Think about adding tactile textile throws in mohair or pure new wool to introduce a luxurious element. Try a colourful rug at floor level to reinforce the suggestion of warmth.

Get personal

Put a personal stamp on an interior by featuring family photographs, mementoes and cherished souvenirs. Some people like to collect things and if it is something that looks good in a display cabinet, then why not put it out there? Porcelain and silverware always looks nice but other less conventional collections work well too. Teapots, silver butter knives, cow shaped cream jugs, snuff boxes – people collect all manner of things and they make interesting interior features as well as good conversation starters. 

Make exterior match interior

Do not forget the house exterior. Does it look welcoming and homely? With a few easy additions a home’s kerb appeal can be transformed. Fix up a pretty house name sign to give the place a really individual look. Personalised signs in many styles are available, and whether it’s a cottagey feel that’s required or an elegant slate nameplate, it’s a great way of sharpening up the house exterior and making it look more inviting. Also install a new lamp by the freshly painted door and have a climbing rose scaling the wall, and suddenly the house looks friendly and cheerful.

Lovely lighting

Is the lighting in the house a little stark? Harsh overhead lighting creates a cold atmosphere, far better to opt for low lighting in the form of attractive lamps around the room.  Directional floor lamps are good for task lighting and coloured light bulbs give a soft, diffuse tone that injects warmth. For a really special atmosphere, soft candlelight is hard to beat so keep a few scented candles on standby.

Making a house a home does not just happen. It has to be stage managed to a certain extent, to make all the elements work together and feel just right. That’s why some homes feel much more welcoming than others – because the owner has made considered decisions about furnishings, styles and accessories. It’s good to know there are plenty of simple and easy steps we can take that transform our houses into home sweet homes.

Choosing the correct house sign.

Which House sign ?

When you have decided to purchase a new house sign, there are a few factors to take into consideration. The main factor is the size, you will need to choose a sign that will accommodate all of the details you require, and if you see an example of a painted design, make sure to check the size it is shown on, and if you think there will be room enough to fit on what you need. If not you will need to choose a larger sign, or leave out some detail.

Having produced house signs now for over 20 years, we have a wealth of experience designing plaques for our customers, and we are always happy to offer our assistance.

Factors to consider when choosing a sign

1. How far will the sign need to be seen from.
2. What do you need to display on the sign. Just a number – House name and a number – House number and street name. (Please bear in mind the more letters you that you display -the smaller the letter size will need to be, to fit on the sign). In other words do you really need to have your road name, or will you be better off having a larger number with a design?
3. Do you want just a plain house sign, or would you like a raised hand painted motif to attract attention to your sign.
4.What shape will suite your details. As all address’s and names are different lengths, we have a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate your text.

Plain house sign shapes

Oval house number sign

Starting Plain Oval – Sign size 6″ x 4″ – can take up to 3 numbers

P12a_Arch_Gold_Rim_9x8

Arch style house sign – 9″ x 8″ size – ideal for number and house name signs.
2″number and 1″ letters.

Rectangle Name plates

Section of plain rectangle signs.

Artwork House plaques

When choosing a design from our artwork section always check the size that the example is shown on, if it is on an 8″ x 5½” oval with just a number, you will need a larger size if you are going to include a name as well, in order for the name to fit on the sign.

This sign shows how raised our designs are on the signs  that we produce, giving a real life effect to the end product.

Poppy - house signs - door sign

With the majority of the designs that we display on our website, we use a raised motif, which is moulded into the sign when we produce it, along with the raised letters and numbers. As you can see from the above images, these are not stick on emblems, which have been already painted. They are in fact individually hand painted after the sign has been moulded with your design of choice. The artist actually paints the area around the motif, in order to blend it in with the sign itself, and also maximise the space that is available, to make sure that large area’s are not left blank. This method of painting creates a design that looks life like.

Make sure you do not miss out on this wonderful offer and visit our site today to be amazed by our selection of raised motifs available on your sign.
