Pointing Finger Sign in Solid Oak

In the garden, these can point to the homes of much loved relatives and friends, birthplaces, or perhaps those dream destinations around the globe.

I have a large version in my garden pointing towards my birthplace. It’s quite a thrill knowing that as I stand beside it, I can look in exactly the right direction, and imagine the miles between me and where my life began!

Your choice of Image on your Pointing Finger Sign

There is the option to upload a picture to be engraved on your sign. This would be in addition to the normal text created using one of the ten fonts available. Checkout this link to see just how easily you can do it with your phone…

  • Just write your message clearly in black biro on white paper, take a photo with your phone and email it to talbotandbourne@gmail.com stating your name so it can be associated with your order. Alternatively, just upload the picture using the File Upload feature on the above form. Don’t worry about the size of your image, or the placement…I can move things around so they fit beautifully for you.
    You will get a visual emailed to you for your approval, before any manufacturing starts. If anything needs to be altered at this stage, please say, as it’s really important that you get exactly what you want!

Trading off the imagery of a host of antique signs, this pointer evokes values of established quality and yet also a sense of humour. I’ve had clients use them for all sorts of purposes. Some for directing to “Reception”, “Sales” or “Reprographics”, whilst others choose a more whimsical approach with, for example, two signs pointing in opposite directions, one says “Great Ideas,” whilst the other, “The Door”!

How to Order your Pointing Finger Sign

Send me the destination location (or target) of the sign, and the address where the sign itself is to be installed (this will usually be the customer’s address, but if you are buying for someone else, please insert their details in the space provided on the order form), and I will calculate the direction your sign needs to point in, and the precise distance from that spot! Each sign comes with a free magnetic compass, and instructions for how to install it so it is pointing exactly the right way.

You will be sent a visualization via email for you to approve before manufacture commences.

Would you like an oak post oriented to set the accurate direction too?

I can help you with the accurate mounting of your sign in your garden as well. Using satellite imagery and mapping technology, I will assess the accurate direction and distance to your preferred target from your garden (or wherever you wish to install the completed sign) and fabricate a 1 metre high oak post complete with a mark on the uppermost surface indicating North. Full installation instructions come with your sign, but if you want to know more, read on!

If this post is positioned with this mark correctly pointing North, it will leave a flat face of the post free on which the sign can be mounted, thus ensuring that your new pride and joy is actually pointing straight to the target, as well as stating exactly how far away from your garden it is. This addition is priced at £15.00 which considering how much work goes into these calculations, the extra carriage costs, the cost of the perfect oak that will be used and yacht varnish finish, is a very cost effective addition for you. If you would like to use this option, simply select the variant from the order form.

Personalised Oak Pointing Finger Sign – Finish

There are currently two sizes of pointer available, both made out of the finest quality 21mm thick oak. The “Small” is of 620 x 100mm and the “Large” is twice that size at 1.2m x 200mm.

All pointers are meticulously sanded by hand before the application of several generous coats of yacht varnish, which as well as protecting the wood from environmental damage, also provides a beautiful lustre, the quality of which may be seen in the close-up photographs on this page. All this comes to you at no extra cost.

These pointers are totally unique (I can prove that…it’s my hand doing the pointing!) so they are not available anywhere else. What better way to show how much your business differs from all the rest?

    Brilliantly made item, and even better customer service. Was a gift for a Berlin obsessed wife, who loves both the item itself and the quality of it.
