Our custom house name signs, personalized with your house name or family name, (or another short phrase) are already a huge hit at Beach House Dreams on the Outer Banks of NC. Order your own mega anchor, mega dolphin, or mega whale; sea turtle signs are listed separately, in extra large size with your beach house name or your family's name hand lettered on it, sealed to go outside!
NEW: MERMAIDS! https://www.etsy.com/listing/77012627/mermaid-outdoor-art-house-name-sign
These make fabulous housewarming gifts, as your sign will be unique and will adorn your home for many years to come! Order early, as there will be a 2-3 week turnaround time on these in February, and as we get closer to spring and summer seasons this turnaround time could be longer, 3-4 weeks or more.
Each of these large beach shaped signs is cut by Bob, routed, sanded, and he puts the hangers on the back. (He uses d rings which you can reposition if you want to hang the sign at a different angle. OR we can include them in a plastic bag unattached, if you request it, and then you can screw them in yourself.)
Next Rita carefully hand paints the lettering, and then seals the finished sign, so it can go OUTSIDE. Letter sizes vary from 2 " letters to 6" letters; placement on the sign depends on what name or wording you choose, and which shape you choose. Shown are several sold recently...
Letters are $6 per letter, as each sign is different and this-the hand painted lettering, is the most time consuming part. This listing is for the SHAPE ONLY- the lettering will be set up as a custom listing for you once we know how many letters you want.
This listing is for one MEGA whale, anchor, or dolphin; the sea turtle (horizontal as shown) is listed separately. THIS LISTING does not include the lettering- that will be set up separately for you as a custom order, once you let us know what letters you want, and which shape.
If you want a PLAIN mega shape with no lettering, purchase this listing, and your sign with NO lettering will ship in 7-10 business days. We have sold at least 3 of the mega whales (55") in aqua with no lettering- perfect for that large wall of yours.
Please note: Eileen's way whale photo was taken before "I" was dotted and apostrophe added-the final product had those added. That photo over a window on our porch shows you the perspective- how large the 55" whale is, and also our customer's favorite color choice: distressed aqua. The Bests specifically requested that their name be painted slanted, not straight across. Contact us with any questions you have so we can make something special for YOUR house.
These signs are long and heavy, so if you are not sure what the shipping would be to your area, contact us with your shape choice and your zip code, and we can more accurately estimate what your shipping would be to your home.
Your purchase will be carefully packaged and shipped with care. Contact me with questions you may have...
Just a reminder. This listing is for the mega shape sign only with NO lettering. Lettering will be purchased separately once you send us your word requests.
Thanks for coming by, have a blessed day!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
