We started as a bespoke picture framer in Geelong, Victoria and moved to Gold Coast, Queensland.  Day by day we’re captivated by the beauty of vintage illuminated signs. We slowly shifted to designing and creating a range of wooden light boxes with hand painted signs. We have been getting positive feedback and responses from our lovely buyers, that makes us keep pushing ourselves to design and create more quality products, lighted hand painted signs !

We use raw timber Tasmanian Oak, rather than using factory made mas-produced frames. Each and every light box is manually cut, joined, sanded, waxed and stained.

All the signs are hand painted. We accept custom orders, whether it is a personalised gifts, business logos, wedding signs or special quotes for someone special; we will design and create it for you personally.
