About HandPaintedWoodSigns.com

We are Signmakers handcrafting historic house signs lettered and painted using traditional signwriting methods. We use only brushes and all our signs are made, painted and lettered by hand.

Making Hand Painted Wooden Signs Since 2003

Handpaintedwoodsigns.com was started in 2003 to meet the historic homeowner's need for an authentic hand lettered historic house sign. Starting with one shape and size plaque, the 14x11 french corner rectangle, our popularity grew online. Today, our selection has grown to over 25 standard sizes and shapes of sign and making custom size and shape solid cedar signs. Our Medford NJ sign shop is located on Main Street in historic Medford, Burlington County, New Jersey, where our painted signs adorn many private and commercial buildings.

In 2014 we expanded our line of cedar signs in standard sizes and introduced the London Reproduction Sign Collection, authentic reproductions of signs we loved throughout London, England. Still though, we hand sand every inch of every piece of wood we touch. And every sign gets that great hand lettered hand painted text.


We Love Historic Houses, We Love Signmaking

As we enter our 17th year in 2019, we continue to take great pride in learning about the property and house for the signs that we hand craft. We love seeing pictures and hearing the "backstory" of each house, some of which we share in our site's Hand Painted Sign Gallery and on Facebook. We understand our customers' needs to be able to trust that we are going to create the perfect sign for their house or property. After all, we are historic house owners as well. Below is the Thomas Potts House, an 1863-built historic home that was once the Star Glass Company owner's house Frank Reily, in Medford, New Jersey.
