You Are Here

Define your exact corner of the world in a whole new way with this industrial outdoor sign. Artist Chris Crooks takes the address of your home, business, or favorite place and converts it to its geographic coordinates, reducing to two decimal points to differentiate between you and your neighbor's front door. Set against a backdrop of richly patinated oxidized steel, your family or business name (up to 12 characters) are laser engraved in block lettering along with the corresponding coordinates. A contrasting stainless steel backing makes the lettering stand out, while the weather-resistant cedar wood backing and steel stakes make this a long-standing welcome to your garden, front door, and place in the universe. Handmade in Corona de Tucson, Arizona.

Includes screws for wall mounting as well as stakes for ground mounting. Click to view mounting instructions (also included with item).

Chris Crooks has taken a somewhat winding road to get to where is now—creating imaginative lawn sculptures inspired by the southwest landscape he calls home. After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Chris worked in advertising, then ran a printing business with his wife, while painting during his free time.



It was when the couple moved to Tucson for a change of scenery that Chris collaborated with a metal art manufacturer and fell in love with the art form. Eventually, he began designing and making his first metal sculpture collection from his studio nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rita mountains, just outside Tucson.

“I always wanted to make a living doing something genuinely enjoyable,” he says. “To get up in the morning raring to go, and never having enough time to do everything you want to do.”

      What do you buy for your 50 year old son who is a "master geocacher? This is it!! Great "pre-weathered" steel. Should last at least 100 years. Hope they never move!

              Bought this product as gift for my hard to buy for husband. We purchased our first beach home and this was the perfect gift. Unique, well made and a definite statement/conversation piece. At our first gathering with friends, everyone wanted to know where I purchased the sign. So thankful to find this product and plan to order more!

                This was a Father's Day gift for my husband! It is a really unique gift - my husband loves it!
                It is excellent quality and looks so professional; a nice yard or porch accent.

                  We think the sign is attractive and had seen one in a friends garden. We have not installed yet so can't vouch for any of the cons listed. Our friends sign had been in their yard for several months and it looked nice. I did spray a clear sealer on all sides as this will be subject to our sprinkler system.

                    Great quality and it arrived looking exactly as I expected it to. An avid traveler and a fan of old, world maps seeing our place in the world in lat/long in our front yard everyday always makes me smile and long for another adventure.
