We also offer other shapes: whales (mega whale is up to 55"), large anchors up to 46" tall, mega dolphins, and mermaids (Separate listings)... This listing is for a large TURTLE house sign. Contact us if you'd like us to start on a custom house name sign for you!

This large sea turtle was inspired by N.E.S.T. the sea turtle rescue organization here on the Outer Banks of NC. Sea tutles are some of the most popular selling items in our store. I once drove my youngest daughter and the turtle she rescued 20 minutes to the nearest vet~ true story. We come from a long line of animal lovers and rescuers, so we had to have this turtle art for our shop.

This listing is for one LARGE sea turtle house sign, made of wood by Bob, which he has handpainted and distressed and sealed so it can go outside! Each of these are cut to be the same size, and painted in the 3 colors shown, but each turtle is slightly different as they are all handpainted.

Now you can add words to your LARGE Swimming Sea Turtle...
Shipping is via priority mail, which arrives about 3 business days after I ship in the continental U.S. Please allow us at least 10-15 business days (2-3 weeks) to get your order ready to ship.

Right now, these are available facing right (as shown) or left. Please specify which direction you want, facing right or facing left.

There is an additional charge for lettering! Contact us so we can set up a custom listing for you. Letters (2"-6" tall) are $6 each.

THIS listing is for the sea turtle as shown in last photo with no words, or with lettering if you purchase letters using the pull down menu.

Please remember to specify as you check out:
1. Do you want your swimming sea turtle to face right or left?
2. If you are paying for lettering, what words do you want on your turtle? (Once you pay for lettering we will be in touch about the font choices, block style or a more modern script font, as shown)

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take custom orders?

Yes, almost all of our orders for painted towel racks, furniture and prints are custom orders. Most painted listings give you a drop down menu to select your colors and let you choose if your items are distressed or not.

When will my order ship?

Due to the volume of orders we are processing, and since almost everything we make and sell is custom made, the usual turnaround time is 10 business days or 2 weeks before we ship your order. Occasionally the time could be less- contact us with questions about your particular order.

I need my order sooner; can you help me?

Depending on how many orders we are currently processing, there may be times when we can ship your order in less than 2 weeks. Contact us with your question, and we'll do what we can to help you.

What info do you need from me to customize my order, and how do I provide this information to you?

Most of our painted listings have a drop down menu where you select paint colors and if you want your items distressed or not. If you are purchasing a painted item, that has multiple hooks, or multiple colors, you can:
1. put your choices in the message to seller section as you check out.
2. send a conversation message to us when you purchase.
For print orders, the process is:
1. put your choices in the message to seller as you check out.
2. send a conversation message to us when you purchase.
If you forget to give us your color or custom details, we cannot process your order until you send us that info.

Custom and personalized orders

Please double check the personalization info and custom details you send us, as well as your shipping address on file for etsy- we ship to the address etsy provides us. If your item is defective, we will of course replace it for you.

What if I forgot to send you all the info you need to start my order?

We will contact you via an etsy conversation if we have a question about your personalization or if you forgot to include all the info we need. We strongly recommend that you have an email address you check regularly linked to your etsy account for this purpose. If you do not check etsy convos regularly, or have a current email address you check regularly linked to your account, once we have attempted to reach you, we can not proceed with starting to work on your order until you get back to us.
