Q. Are your signs handcrafted?
A. Yes...all of our signs are 100% designed and handcrafted by us here at Meyers Designs Studio in NB Canada.
Q. Do you take custom orders?
A. Yes we do! Simply e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea and we go from there. Be prepared to answer e-mails with as much detail as possible in describing what you want, as we want to be absolutely sure that we provide you with exactly what it is you have in mind. It is our attention to detail, high standards in customer service along with precision craftsmanship and a true caring for achieving authenticity in the finishes, the best suited styles of lettering and colours, that we hope you will find to separate us from the rest. Your actual project and turnaround time commence once your full payment has been received. For directions and detailed info on Vintage Custom Sign orders, please see our Policies page. For ideas, you can view some of our previous custom projects in our Past Custom Works Gallery. Typically, turnaround time on custom orders is between 3-5 weeks depending upon standing workloads, plus shipping time of approximately 4-8 business days.
Q. THE BIG ONE...How do you get that effect on your signs?
A. Well...that is one we can't share with you! I have worked in faux finishes and paints longer than I can remember and so... experience in working with various materials, tools and effects has lent itself to our distressing and aging techniques. I will tell you tho, that it is a lengthy process as it takes time to achieve the weathered wood appearance on new wood and the finish process alone involves several steps and all with drying times in between. It all takes time, but then again, doesn't everything worth having?
Q. Can your signs be used outdoors?
A. All of our signs as finished are intended for indoor use only unless otherwise specifically stated or requested. If you are looking for something you can display outdoors, please let us know.
Q. How can I make payment?
A. We currently accept payment via Paypal through their secure server. You do not need to have a Paypal account in order to make payment by credit card thru Paypal. Local orders may be paid by cash or purchased via Paypal. New Brunswick residents pay 13% tax on their purchase which is automatically calculated at checkout. Please see our Policies page for detailed info on Payment.
Q. How soon after purchasing can I expect my sign to be shipped?
A. If we have your item on hand, we will usually ship within the next 48 hours however, many of our items are made-to-order and will typically require 3-4 weeks for creation plus shipping time of approx 4-8 business days. We do not ship on weekends. Our preferred service is Cda Post Small Packets Air Service US, and Cda Post Expedited Parcel due to being the most cost-effective options for you, our customer.
