Helpful info when choosing your design & size
Standard times are approx 3 weeks for bare mild steel and 4 weeks for powder coated.
During the months from September to December, lead times are extended due to high demand.
We are located in Griffith NSW 2680 and are happy to ship anywhere across Australia. Freight costs can be in excess of $700 for our larger property signs depending the size of the sign and your location.
Australia post as an economical option for freight but you are restricted to 1m x 1m and weighing no more that 22kg. If you require your items to be posted, please include suburb and post code.
We can cut almost any shape you would like and can customise to suit your ideas.
feel free to let us know if you like aspects of more than one of our designs that you would like to blend or if you have a brand new idea and we can work with you to create your own unique sign.
We can also cut almost any font that is available in word. We do recommend to go with a thicker or bold font as the finer the font the harder it is to read at a distance.
Bare mild steel that will gain the rust effect with time in the elements is becoming an increasingly popular option. If you choose bare mild steel, your sign may already have the rust effect on collection as it all depends on where the sheet has been stored prior to cutting. We also offer powder coating in your choice of Dulux colour (colour chart is located in the "More" Tab at the top of the page)
We are able to manufacture sturdy RHS posts to go with your sign with the most common length for the posts been 2.6m so that 60cm is concreted in the ground leaving 2m above. We are able to manufacture them to suit your individual needs.
Note that if you choose posts with a bare mild steel sign, they will require sand blasting to remove the blue coating that the RHS comes in.
