Father's Day Gift guide: Win a $25 GC for Signs of Elegance 6/16


A lot of dads would love the Man Cave sign for Father's Day. It's his and his alone - his den, garage, workshop, game room, TV room - a place to do manly things.

Artisan Susan Peterson says, Signs of Elegance at her Art Fire Studio, is where words and phrases become art. Each sign is painted on pine board (no vinyl lettering) and finished with a sawtooth hanger ready to display in your home. Her niche is uplifting and inspiring phrases and word signs that are sleek.


Susan usually does not 'distress' signs to make them appear older/vintage (but will do that upon request) ... and does not try to correct natural wood markings, knots etc., as she feels this adds to the character of the signs.


The signs are beautiful and professional painted with acrylics and enamels, and a clear coat of sealant. It comes ready to hang with a sawtooth hanger attached.

When I first saw the I Love You sign, it was only available in blue. Thankfully, a conversation with Susan got me this pink sign that's perfect for my granddaughter. There's a lot of meaning behind it, because her grandfather first taught her to look for the moon. Now we tell her, "I love you to the moon and back," and she says, "That's a lot."
Susan loves to do custom signs for her customers, using colors, words, and phrases that have special meaning to them and their family.
