Signs of Elegance

Signs of Elegance is just that! A shop filled with all types of word art signs for all occasions and decors.

Susan has signs for just about anything that you could imagine!  And if she doesn't have it, she can make it for you.

How cool is that wedding sign?  Or the one for your fav football team?  Sometimes just a single word can say volumes!

All of the signs are painted onto pine board (no vinyl lettering) and finished with a sawtooth hanger.  Ready to display.  She doesn't usually 'distress' her signs to make them appear older/vintage (but can do so upon request).  Susan also doesn't try to correct natural wood markings, knots etc. because she feels that those marks gives her signs character.

Here are just a couple of the categories available for browsing, but make sure you visit the shop to see all available listings!

~ personalized
~ Christmas
Family and House Rules
~ Wedding
~ Sports
