HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CUSTOM CARVED SIGN

All of our signs are carved from top quality, hand-selected cedar or select pine wood.  

 

Cedar has a natural tendency to weather gray if not protected with an UV protective sealant product.  In order to maintain the beauty of your carving please follow the instructions below:

INTERIOR SIGNS:

All of our signs intended for interior use are treated with 2 coats of Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane. 

Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane is a clear, oil-based, durable protective finish.

  • Provides long-lasting beauty and protection to any interior wood surface.

  • Among the most durable coatings for wood protection.

To preserve the original beauty of your sign:

  • Do not submerge in water. 

  • Do not display in direct sunlight.

  • Do not clean with harsh chemicals.

  • For normal cleaning it is recommended to use a dry or microfiber cloth and/or a small amount of furniture polish. 

  • If your carving becomes dull you may add an additional coat of Minwax Fast Drying Polyurethane.  This product can be purchased at any local home improvement store (Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.).

EXTERIOR SIGNS:

All of our signs intended for exterior use are treated with 3 coats of Minwax® Helmsman® Spar Urethane, which is specially formulated as a protective clear finish for exterior or interior wood exposed to sunlight, water, or temperature changes.

  • Contains UV blockers to reduce the sun's graying and fading effects.

  • Forms a protective barrier against rain and moisture.

  • Special oils allow the finish to expand and contract with the wood as seasons and temperatures change.

Any product that is left outside to weather the sun, rain, and fluctuations in temperature will have a tendency to fade and dull over time. In some cases, this effect may be desired.

To preserve the original beauty of your sign, it is recommended that you treat your carving every other year with an additional coat of Minwax Spar Urethane. This product can be purchased at any local home improvement store (Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.).
