Who We Are
Danthonia Designs is an award winning team of traditional sign-makers. We take pride in using time-honored handcrafting skills such as chisel-carving, sculpting, gold-leaf gilding & artist-painting on each piece of signage we create.
'One picture is worth a thousand words' - so the sign-designer tools we have developed for this website allow you to visually show us what you would like for a sign - rather than attempt to describe your wishes verbally.
Browse through our galleries and find a sign design you really like. Use our online tools to tweak and customize your sign until it is perfect. Our master signcrafters will take your concept and render it into a exceptional work of handcrafted signage.
Aesthetically most of the work we produce would be placed in the 'wooden signs' category - but in fact we use waterproof materials. Your handcrafted Danthonia sign comes with a UV resistant finish and rust-free hanging hardware - it will outlast any wooden sign!
Danthonia is located in Inverell, NSW Australia. In addition to the work that we do for Australian clients we ship over 100 signs each month to the USA and other international destinations. The Aussie Dollar is normally lower than the US Dollar and our countries have a free trade agreement. We deliver in 21 days and offer free shipping. This means US clients get great value for money on world-class handcrafted signage.
Give us a try - we would love to carve you a beautiful sign. Order now to make the deadline for a Christmas delivery!

But I’m figuring out a balance day-by-day...Read more.
