This page is to answer general questions regarding how items are made, what they're made from, how long they'll last, shipping details and wholesale questions.
My items are designed and made by myself right here in Roblin, Manitoba. It has taken me years to figure out how to design and produce my products. My items are not mass produced in China. Each item is individually made by myself with lots of love which makes each item unique. No two items are a like.
I have a few items which I design and have printed by another company here in Canada. If this is the case there'll be a note of this on the listing.

Wood Signs & Wood Decor
Netties Expressions pallet wall hangings are made from new wood and distressed to look like old wood pallets. Due to all the concerns about clean wood I decided to just stick with new wood. Some wood has been allowed to weather naturally without being exposed to chemicals and other toxins.
The pallet wall hangings are sealed with lacquer or polyurethane. The pallet wall hangings come with a saw tooth hanger, O hooks or a picture wire on the back ready to hang. It depends on the size and weight of the sign.
These are signs which are already made and in stock. Generally these are shipped in 1-2 days of making your purchase.
These are signs which are made to order. It is impossible to keep each sign in stock. In order to make all my signs available to you, I offer the option to purchase a sign or sign(s) and they will be made once you have completed your purchase. Most signs ordered this way, will be shipped within 3-4 weeks. Generally, they are shipped sooner, but this is the maximum production time. I will keep you posted as to the process and when your order will be ready to ship. If you order a large quantity of signs, it will take longer to get your order ready.
Wood Signs - these are made from a pine board. Each sign is individually handmade by myself. I cut the wood, sand it, prep it for painting, design and cut my own stencils and do the painting myself. Most of the wood signs come with a saw tooth hanger on the back ready for hanging. There are a few smaller styles which don't generally come with a saw tooth hanger. Each listing will say whether it comes with one or not. If you would like a saw tooth hanger attached please make a note with your order. The signs are sealed with lacquer or polyurethane.
Framed Wood Signs - The process of painting and distressing is the same. Basically the only difference is the type of wood used. These are made from 1/2" to 3/4" plywood.
Thick Wood Signs - The process of painting and distressing is the same. Basically the only difference is the type of wood used. These are made from rough 2" x 6" lumber. These don't come with a saw tooth hanger unless specifically asked.
***The wood I use has knot holes and imperfections which adds to the rustic look of my signs. I do not try to cover up these imperfections as I feel that it adds character to the individual piece.***
Yes, Netties Expressions wood signs are hand painted using stencils.
Hand Painted vs Free Hand
Hand Painted: painted by a person and not by a machine
Free Hand: done without special tools or instruments
Netties Expressions rustic wood décor and signs are NOT mass produced in China or created in a sweat shop or factory assembly line. Each piece is individually handmade by myself (Jennette). There is a lot of thought and love put in to each item.
No two signs or wood décor are identical which means that the décor or sign(s) you have purchased or want to purchase will be special and unique to you and your home. The uniqueness of each item is what makes Netties Expressions wooden décor so special.
All of my wood signs and décor are designed and created to be rustic. I try my utmost to provide good quality and craftsmanship. The décor and sign(s) which you purchase will be distressed and may not look identical to the sign pictured due to the uniqueness of distressing.
If you are looking for perfect pieces of identical art, you will not find that here in the handmade world.
Wood is wood. Even the same types of wood are different which means that the same colour of stain or paint may look different from piece to piece. I love the look of wood and do not try to cover up knots, knot holes, the wood grain, aging or imperfections in the wood as I feel that it adds special character to each piece.
