Carved Rustic Mountain Restaurant / Après Ski Solid Wood Sign, personalized / custom, finish options
If like me you have many fond memories of a particular Après ski spot in your favourite resort, or the place you and your partner met (perhaps they were your ski instructor), or you just had a bloody good meal there ... anyway the idea here is to provide a lasting memory of that hot spot so when you get to the point of barely remembering what you had for breakfast let alone the name of that mountain cabin you visited years ago it's right there on the wall.
The examples shown are just to give you some ideas ... you can start with these and change the wording to fit your needs or come up with something similar but different ;-)
#### PLEASE ENSURE TO WRITE EXACTLY AS YOU WANT THE TEXT TO APPEAR including whether upper (CAPS) or lower case ... we are not responsible for checking your spelling or correcting your punctuation as we will copy & paste exactly what you tell us you want on the sign ####
These signs are 4" tall & 24" wide as standard although the rustic board version is a little wider to accommodate the rough profile without interfering with the contents of the sign. We can make versions in a variety of colours including our own custom stains which give it that authentic old rustic lodge feel. There are also other size options.
Please remember that wood by its very nature is an imperfect material with natural character and no two pieces are exactly the same.
As with all our signs we will send you a rendering first once we get your order so you can make any corrections ... and then from there it takes only a few days before this is on it's way. If you have any questions; as always message us and we will do our best to provide exactly what you are looking for.
WALL MOUNTING >>> for indoors use our signs are intended to be mounted on the wall or a door or some other vertical flat surface. The standard sized signs are light enough that command strips or similar will work and do not leave a mark. Alternatively as of Jan 2022 we will supply metal hangers with all our signs unless advised otherwise. These are the type that slip over 2 screws on the surface so that the sign does not protrude more than about 1/8" from the wall (refer to the last photo in product gallery above).
All our products are made from solid wood with the exception of birch or other varieties of plywood which are an option on some specific items.
Wood by it's very nature (being an all natural material) has ut's character traits ... some species more than others. Pine, fir and to a lesser excent cedar all have knots and significant colour variation is possible. Maple is more pedictable with very few knots. Birch plywood is much like maple but a more affordable option, however carving plywood reveals the core layers which can be of a different shade.
Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We will start to make your sign AFTER any personalization has been approved via email [we send you a computer rendering within 48hrs of receiving your order]. It then takes 3-5 days once you have given approval via email reply to carve, finish, pack & ship.
NOTE: We are not responsible for delays caused by customs or other carrier-related delays out of our control. When your order ships you will get a calculated ESTIMATED time of arrival based on the carrier's own standards, but this is not a guaranteed arrival date.
We only ship with trackable methods such as Canada Post Expedited Parcel, etc. Contact us within 14 days of receipt with any damage or other product concerns. For returns we need to receive the product back within 30 days of you receiving it and it must be in new condition (unless of course it arrived damaged).
We actually make our products using mm but we will quote sizes in both mm & the closest inch dimensions. It's just way more precise to use mm in the workshop.
We use exterior grade paints but only the fir (or cedar) sign products have an exterior clear coat on them. As long as you avoid spilling anything on the wood or wipe off immediately then there should be minimal maintenance required ... wipe down with a damp cloth. As with any wood product try to avoid excessive temperature fluctuations as the wood can distort. Some amount of fading is to be expected with any painted wood product exposed to the sun & elements over time ... much in the same way that the siding on a house or your car will fade in the sun eventually.
Are you in to the "weathered" look?
This one is perfect for that fun piece at the cabin and we have both a skier and snowboarder version.
Perhaps you'd like the aged look if the skiers at your cabin are a bit "weathered" themselves with a few laps of the bumps under their belt.
For the vast majority of products shipping is included for customers in Canada or USA (lower 49). Shipping charges apply for other international destinations.
We realize many websites will mention "Free shipping" but I think we all know it has been factored in to the price rather than actually being "free". Call me old fashioned but I believe in being honest about this sort of stuff.
If your order arrives damaged then we will send a replacement provided you notify us within 14 days of receipt. Please note that the natural character traits of wood are not considered damage ... these are wood signs after all. We suggest the maple option if you prefer less in terms of "character".
Any non-personalized products can be returned within 30 days for a refund, however you will need to pay for shipping if for any reason other than damage or wrong product and they must arrive back in the original condition.
