ABOUT OUR SIGNS: Please be aware that we use pine wood that is approx 1" thick. They are not mass produced, cookie cutter type signs but each unique. It may have knots, small dinks, varied roughness and imperfections as to be expected of wood. We sand each piece with an electric sander, but do not attempt to completely cover all of these imperfections. This adds warmth, charm & character to each. Each sign will vary depending on those characteristics, grain of the wood and distressing. For painted, shabby distressed signs, each will vary according to the distressing as well.
