Wood Sign Ideas

Increase the effectiveness of your wood signs by:

  • Using contrasting paint colours to improve visibility
  • Employing carving to make dimensional lettering
  • Using borders to help readability


Wood signs may be displayed in several ways:

  • Professional installation is recommended
  • Bolted directly to walls
  • Bolted to posts and then planted in the ground


  • Ensure your wood sign is sealed properly to prevent warping.

Sign products and materials may vary by location. Contact your local SIGNWAVE® centre for more information on product availability.
