About "Some Guys"  Sign Works


"Some Guy's" started back in 2001 primarily as a craft wholesaler to many local stores in the Smoky Mountain area. In 2007, we started making Personalized Wooden Signs. Now that was an adventure in that making signs and making wood crafts are two entirely different things. When making a personalized wooden sign, there are many things that need to be taken into consideration as they are primarily displayed outdoors. Which wood to use? which paints are the most resistant to the elements, what type of clear coat to apply that will give you the most life from your personalized wooden sign? All things that need to be considered. The main thing we did discover is that for your wood sign to last for any given period of time outdoors, you need multiple applications of an outdoor protectant. That's where we stand head and shoulders above the competition. If a sign maker promises to have your sign ready in a couple of hours, you can be sure that you will be replacing it in less than a half of a year.

In 2011, my wife and I decided to try the retail side of our business and opened a store in Gatlinburg Tennessee which we subsequently closed the following year due to the horrible economy. 
I have been a "woodworker" for many years but I can't paint to save my life so that's where my wife has helped to take our business to a whole new level. If you look at our "Photo Gallery" you will see what I am talking about. All of our personalized wood signs are hand painted by Oksana (my wife) and as a result, we produce a product that is second to none. I'm not just saying this because it's our business, but I have not seen a wood sign as nice as ours anywhere.

In addition to great craftsmanship, we protect all of our Custom Wood Signs, Personalized Wood Signs, and Camping Signs with three coats of "Spar Urethane" so that your sign is ready to go indoors or outdoors as soon as you receive it.
"Some Guy's" Sign Works is owned and operated by my wife and 
I right here in the Smoky Mountains. Since our company opened its doors in April of 2001, we’ve treated every customer like they were an asset to our business. There is nothing worse than going into a store and having the person that attends to you, treat you as if they were doing YOU a favor and you were the one that needed them. I can't begin to tell you the amount of business we have gained as a result of a certain local sign maker that does just that. 

Oksana and I have been doing business in the Great Smoky Mountains for many years and have made thousands of Personalized Wood signs. We have even made signs for customers in England, Ireland, Germany, Canada, and Russia. We use only select grade Eastern Aromatic Cedar which gives our signs an unparalleled appearance that can't be found in most parts of the country. This species of Cedar works great for Camping signs or any Personalized wooden Sign in that it will not rot.

Yes, there are many other Custom Wood Sign makers, but from customer service, to design, to finished product, we are the best! If you are looking for a personalized wood sign for your home or business then you should let "Some Guys" make it!
