“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”- Theodore Roosevelt
Our Dakota Signs are handcrafted from real wood by real hometown folks in downtown Laurel, Mississippi. Every sign is individually hand cut, painted, printed, and framed in our workshop. These signs look great on almost any wall...from dining room to den, bedroom to bath, man cave to home office, mud room to living room, and porch to patio. The wood frame is made from reclaimed lumber and coated with our signature all-natural wood stain for a uniquely beautiful weathered look that is also safe for our environment. Each piece of wood is unique and may have perfect imperfections such as knots, nicks, small cracks, and holes. Your sign will be hand stained, hand painted, and lightly sanded to add character. Every piece responds to the stain and distressing process differently making it one-of-a-kind. With a mix of style that is modern with a touch of rustic, our signs will bring daily inspiration to your family and friends.
