How to Make Your Engraved Wood Sign Last a Lifetime

How to Make Your Engraved Wood Sign Last a Lifetime

Are you the proud owner of a custom engraved wood sign from Weaver Custom Engravings? Do you want to ensure that it lasts for a lifetime and beyond? Follow these simple steps to keep your sign in top condition.

Step 1: Choose the Right Spot

Choose the right spot to hang your sign. Make sure that it's not in direct sunlight, as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause the wood to fade over time. Also, make sure it's not in a damp or humid area, as this can cause the wood to warp or crack.

Step 2: Regular Cleaning

Regular cleaning is essential for keeping your sign looking like new. Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt that accumulates on the sign. Avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasives as this can damage the wood or the engraving.

Step 3: Avoid Extreme Temperatures

Avoid exposing your sign to extreme temperatures. Extreme heat or cold can cause the wood to warp or crack. Keep your sign in a temperature-controlled environment, and avoid placing it near any heat sources or air conditioning units.

Step 4: Apply a Protective Coating

To provide an additional layer of protection to your engraved wood sign, consider applying a protective coating. This will help to prevent any scratches or dings that may occur over time. Weaver Custom Engravings offers a variety of protective coatings that can be applied to your sign to keep it in pristine condition.

Step 5: Consider Upgrading to a More Durable Material

If you're looking for a more durable material, consider upgrading to one of our personalized metal signs or plaques. We offer waterproof coating, although the stain we use already provides great waterprooding.

At Weaver Custom Engravings, we offer a wide range of products in addition to our custom engraved wood signs. From wedding gifts to personalized furniture, we have something for everyone. Check out our collections to find the perfect gift or addition to your home.
