Common Wood Sign Applications

Wood Sign Design Ideas

FASTSIGNS can help to increase the effectiveness of your wood signs by:

  • Using contrasting paint colors to improve visibility
  • Employing carving to make dimensional lettering
  • Using borders to help readability
  • Use rounded corners, custom shapes, and dimensional lettering


Wood signs may be displayed in several ways.

  • Bolted directly to walls
  • Bolted to posts and then planted in the ground

Note: Professional installation is recommended. FASTSIGNS can help you install and mount your new wood sign to ensure it’s safely and properly secured.

Caring for your Sign

Ensure your wood sign is sealed properly to prevent warping.
