Each sign has its own personality . . . it may be painted slightly differently, the design may have been modified a bit, an imperfection here or there, your customization added, etc. They make wonderful house-warming gifts, as well as a me-to purchase "chust for nice"! They also fair well outside, but are just a beautiful inside. The white background is very traditional for hexes. These laser-engraved Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Signs are crafted from weatherproof white acrylic. After the hex design is laser-engraved the hex is cut to the desired size. After lasering, the hex designs are hand-painted and then the painted areas are clear-coated to help preserve the hex's beauty. Each hex sign includes an informational card, explaining the meaning of the design and symbols in the hex (see explanation of meanings below).

Hex signs are normally painted using the primary colors - blue, red, green and yellow. (If you dig deeper into Hex Lore, each of these colors has a meaning). We use these same colors, when painting the hexes.

T H E - B A C K - S T O R Y:
Hex signs are a form of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art, related to fraktur, found in the Fancy Dutch tradition. Being in the midst of PA Dutch country we see hex signs on homes, businesses and barns. Many folks attach meanings to the symbols and colors in the signs. We do include this information, but I see the hexes as purely decorative, or "Chust for nice" as in the local dialect. Almost all of the hex signs represent Luck, Goodwill and/or Happiness. Interestingly Hex signs are a Pennsylvania Dutch custom, not to be confused with the Amish who did not adopt the custom of decorating their barns and do not use hex signs to this day.

We have PA Dutch in our blood and grew up with our Grandma and Mom speaking Dutch whenever they did not want us kids to know what they were saying. Even to this day Dutch phrases, such as snicklefritz, nix-nux, rutching around and Gott Im Himmel were directed to our children and now to our grandchildren! My kids even learned Dutch in pre-school and we can all sing Happy Birthday in Dutch!

We love taking the traditional designs and making them laser-friendly. Marrying these folk-lore symbols with new technology was a bit tricky, but well worth the results. Offering wooden designs first was the obvious place to start, but now we have designs in many other substrates such as acrylic, sun-catchers, laserable metallics, stained glass and paint-your-own kits.
