Traveling Classes

About Our Traveling Classes


For our Traveling DIY Workshops, we sand the wood for you ahead of time.  During the workshop you will be able to stain your sign and  paint it using a stencil that we prepare for you ahead of time, and have lots of fun doing it!  This is a great couples date night idea, girls night out, or a family friendly activity.  People of all ages will have fun during our class!

Have a sign you have seen on Pinterest or another picture of one that you really want to make?  Call us or email us at and we can see if we can design something similar for you to make during the class!  There may be an additional $20 design fee charged for these services.


  • We ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the start time of this class.
  • We do allow children age 7 and older to attend our classes with a paid registration.  They must have a parent or guardian also attending the class with a paid registration.
  • Each person who attends the class MUST register for the class.
  • Please note that this project does involve wood and no two pieces of wood are exactly the same. The grain, texture and how the wood takes the stain is different in every piece which means each piece of wood will vary slightly and each sign will vary slightly but it will look fine when we are finished!  We do recommend that you seal your sign, especially if it is going to be displayed outside or in an area prone to moisture, we recommend that you protect it using a spray sealer which you can purchase at any local home improvement store.  DO NOT USE a brush on sealer!
  • COVID-19 DISCLAIMER:  Participants understand that there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 during a class or event just like when in any public place where people are present.  By registering, you agree to these risks and hold Wood Signs by Me harmless.
  • Cancellation and Refund Policy:  If for any reason you can’t attend a class and you notify us at least 2 weeks before the class is to be held by calling our office at 815-930-4000, we can issue you a refund minus a $10 processing fee.  If you don’t notify us at least 2 weeks in advance, we can’t issue you a refund but we can move you to another class in your area.  Also, due to the customization of orders, we can NOT make any changes after you register.  We do require at least 5 people to attend a class in order for us to hold it.  If for any reason we have to cancel, such as bad weather or low attendance, we will notify you ahead of time and reschedule the class.  If you can’t make it to the new scheduled date, we will find another class for you to come to in your area, or issue you a refund (minus the $10 processing fee), or we will ship the sign to you!

Stain Options

Please NOTE that Dark Brown (Walnut) is our most popular stain color, it is used on most of the signs in our gallery.  If you would like white and you want a clean look, pick the white stain.  If you like the distressed or rustic look, pick the white wash distressed. 

You will pick your paint colors during the class.  Please keep in mind that if you pick a DARK STAIN color, you will want to use light paint colors.  And if you pick a LIGHT STAIN color, you will want to use dark paint colors.  That will provide the most contrast and make it easiest to see and read!
