Family This Way

Your loved ones may be scattered across the globe, but this personalized signpost finds a charming way to keep them all in one place. Hand painted to create a warmly weathered finish, each signpost is topped with your family name, followed by up to five arrows showcasing each member's distance and direction from your official homestead. The arrows are plasma cut by Chris Crooks and positioned slightly askew to create a classic look, and an oxidized steel finish develops a lovely patina over time while offering weather-resistant appeal. The result is a colorful statement for your yard or garden that keeps your family close. Made in Tuscon, Arizona.

Custom options:
Top sign: Your family name
Arrows: Family member names (and their distance from your home) and the direction of the arrow, pointing east or west.

“I started out from my garage. As the business grew, and my wife’s and neighbors' patience stretched, it was time to move to an industrial space. There I can bang and grind at all hours of the night. It's 1,000 square feet of pure metalworking nirvana.”

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.”

    We loved it! It had my 2 sons and my wife's 2 sons on the post. Mt wife thought the top was too plain, so I bought a small brass compass rose finial and bolted into the plug at the top of the pipe.
    The pipe slips nicely into a 1 inch ID copper pipe which I will cement into place

      Mom just had her backyard redone. She needed some art to give it character. She isn't always easy to buy for, but absolutely loved this piece!

          This is a fun, colorful outdoor customized reminder of loved ones who may not be near. It arrived very quickly and seems to be a decent gauge metal with steadfast color. The name signs were slightly smaller than I expected however my fault; dimensions are indicated and in proportion. The varied funky fonts/ lettering provides design variety but names aren't very legible from a distance. The pastel colors are fun but you must be okay with their Caribbean/ Key West vibe. We attached the sign to a deck post visible from a window for year round viewing, with C- brackets, you definitely need to think ahead where this will be positioned if you strive for "arrow" directional accuracy. A fun gift, especially if visible through the winter doldrums!

            This is a unique gift that can be customized for those loved ones who don't live close enough! However, it is a great way to remind them that no matter how far away you live, they are close to your heart.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Family Member Signpost:

              This distance sign and pole feels like a real quality product. It was easy to purchase and set up. It looks good from a distance and seems like it's going to stand the test of weathering. I and my 2 sisters gave it as a gift to my parents. The spell-check process worked great since we found an error. So glad they mocked it up and sent it to us for approval.
              Note that the signs can not be interchanged on the pole unless you're willing to drill new holes. So the top sign has to go in the top position, the 2nd arrow sign you create, has to go in the 2nd position, etc.
              The only downside is the long pole which wasn't delivered straight to them. We got it and then had to transport it...a little long but we secured it in the car. So keep that in mind if not shipping direct to recipient.

                This sign was the "best gift" of Christmas the family said. My parents really loved it and thought it so creative. Was made and shipped much quicker than I thought it would be. Overall very happy with this purchase!

                    My father is one of those "impossible to buy for" people who doesn't ever get overly excited about a gift. He showed enthusiasm for this one! He said "It's really neat. Where do you get these things??" High praise indeed (and that's not sarcasm)!

                    A few years ago, my Dad moved several states away from the rest of our family. This sign serves as a reminder of where we all are in relation to him. It's beautifully made, sturdy, truly unique and very attractive.

                    In addition, the artist was very accommodating about a special request and the delivery time was as promised. I'm very, very happy with this purchase and I'd highly recommend both this artist and Uncommon Goods. Thanks to both for a great experience!
