Personalization

Like the idea of a personalized gift, but don't know what to purchase? Give us a call at 1-888-851-9088 (toll-free) for ideas!  From personalized vintage wood or metal signs featuring retro graphics to handsome engraved brass bells and compasses, we have something for everyone and for just about any occasion.  Did you recently stay at a friends' cabin or beach house?  Why not send them a lake or beach sign as a thank you gift personalized with their name, town or favorite beach?  Know someone who's retiring?  A pocket compass engraved with the retiree's name and years of service makes a memorable gift.

Some of our most popular engraved gifts are
bells which are often hung in offices, boats, or on decks and patios attached to homes or cabins. Many of our customers engrave with their name and the year their home was built. If you're hanging a bell on a boat, why not inscribe the name of the boat and the year it was purchased?

Our bells also make great sales awards engraved with the employee's name, thanking him or her for making the cash register "ring." Our military, police, and fire bells make great retirement gifts with the person's name, rank, and years of service engraved.

Nameplates can be attached to many items we carry as well including our
sextants and popular
framed postage stamp collections.

Personalization Information for Wood and Metal Signs


Most of our signs can be personalized for no extra cost!  Signs that can be personalized will have a box for entering in your unique information.  Many signs also have a choice or size or material (wood or metal).  If a sign does not have a box for entering your personalized information, then that sign cannot be personalized.  As always, if you have a question about our signs, please call us toll-free at 1-888-851-9088, or email us at contact@asimplertime.com.

How Long Does It Take to Get My Sign Personalized?
Signs will vary in their deliver times anywhere from 3 days to 4 weeks.  Each sign will have a notation explaining its delivery timeframe.

What Is Your Return Policy for Personalized Signs?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer a refund if the mistake on the sign was made by the customer, so please double check your information when ordering!  We will replace, at no charge, signs that are personalized incorrectly by us.
