Sign Posts and Posts for Signs

Sign Posts


A selection of posts are shown on this page. However our carpenters and blacksmith can make other post designs to special order. The main timbers we use for wooden posts are oak and iroko. Oak is a beautiful timber which is very strong and long lasting. Iroko is similar to teak and full of its own oil so needs less maintenance. For painted wooden posts, idigbo and accoya are used. Idigbo which is a cheaper hardwood and lighter weight and accoya is a modified timber very good for painting. There is also a range of metal posts - both hand-made steel and standard round aluminium.

Wrought iron brackets are also available to fix a hanging sign to the posts.

Stone Signs inset into Posts
Large stone signs are very heavy and need to be well supported on the posts. One possibility is to inset the sign into a 95mm x 95mm post. It can be then bolted to the post or in the case of the Sign Maker sign to the right fixed with our heavy duty adhesive - Grab & Bond

Stone Signs with Support Bar
This is an alternative method of fixing large slate and granite signs to oak posts. For large signs we do suggest oak as it is the strongest timber. It is possible to use 70mm x 70mm on all but the largest signs.

Entrance Signs on Posts
Wooden entrance signs on posts are ideal for the end of your drive. As always we have lots of choices. Firstly you can choose between a natural wood with painted carved letters, or a painted entrance sign in a lovely range of colours. There are also four types of post top to choose from. For a natural wood we usually use Oak but Iroko is another option.
