Order signs in time for Christmas

2016 deadline dates for Christmas delivery

As the festive season approaches we are trying to gauge the demand for our personalised house plaques & give a sufficient lead time to enable delivery before Christmas.

Tree & Decs 640x360

We currently have a good flow of orders coming through at the moment which we are able to keep on top of, however unlike many products each of our signs are hand crafted to bespoke requirements which takes much longer to produce. Normally on the run up to Christmas we are over run with sign orders, so please keep an eye on our Christmas house sign ordering dates, so that you are not disappointed when planning your gift of a house plaque from our stunning range.

Choose from a variety of shapes and sizes and a vast selection of designs. Each of our plaques are produced in a polymer resin after being hand set and moulded, using a specified design and house name. We have been producing our signs for over 20 years and every Christmas we have customers that leave it too late to order, as there is always a massive rush wanted in time for Christmas delivery. As our product is a bespoke hand made sign, we can not just take something off a shelf & post it out. Each sign has to go through a process which takes at least 2/3 weeks. Also being a small family based business we can only produce a certain amount each week but to a very high standard as can be seen from our website Village Green Signs.

This fabulous Offer Ends on Monday 26th October – visit our website to check out the deals.

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.

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.

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.

House Signs – House Plaques – New designs on show

With our new designs of house signs available through our Village Green Signs website, our customers are now able to select a much wider variety of signage. The most popular is still proving to be flowers as we have over 150 house plaques with examples to choose from. Dog signs are also ever popular as we offer a bespoke service and can even hand paint the dog design in the colour of your own pet. On our previous site we had a limited water scenes range for door numbers and house signs, but now show almost 100 separate examples. If it is a plain door sign or door number you require we offer a budget range of house numbers or wide selection of shapes and sizes for door name signs in our plain signs section.

For a more contemporary look of signage select our acrylic signs in a variety of different colours, or our solar house signs that self illuminate at dusk & turn off at dawn.

If you need a Post box to stand up to the weather our large Eurobox post boxes will suffice, as they are produced in a UV stable resin and can also be personalised with your house name details.
