About Lumber Jax

LumberJax all started when owner (Marie) was in the middle of redoing her home. When she could not find a sign that really represented the look she was going for, she decided to start making her own wooden signs. Family and friends loved how she captured her families personality in the decor. She graduated from St. Joseph’s College to become an elementary school teacher. Once her and her husband found out they were expecting their first child she decided to put her teaching career on hold and raise their son. Three years went by and she decided to do a few street fairs with her signs and the public loved the idea, so she eventually decided to open up her very own store. LumberJax is a custom sign company for your home. You can come in and decide what dimensions you want your sign to be, with what saying you want in whatever colors you would like. We also now offer DIY workshops where you can come in and make your very own sign. Why settle for the same old “Live, Laugh, Love”? Bring your own personality into your home!

How It Works

Our workshops are 3 hours long. During this time you will stain or paint your wood whatever color you desire.  We supply all the materials needed to complete each project. You do not have to have any experience. One of our LumberJax experts will guide you along the way. All you need to do is bring your favorite people, beverages, and snacks. Most projects will range from $40 to $70. Our mission is for you to leave with a beautiful piece you are proud enough of to hang up in your home and say “Look what I made!”
