As we cut our items to order they may not be weathered yet when they reach you. We will include a few tips on how to weather your product & get the beautiful rustic patina as quickly as possible.

Weathering Tips

It's our aim to get your sign or ornament to you as quickly as possible, so unfortunately it isn't possible for us to pre-weather them.

This means your item will be in its raw form - the traditional grey steel colour. It doesn't take long to develop the beautiful rusty patina on your item, most will look pretty good within just a couple of weeks.

However, to be fully sealed and for your product to stop leaking any rust, does require 3-6 months. We have experimented with a few different options, and these are our top tips to speed up the weathering process.



Within Australia we offer flat rate delivery of $13.5 per order, or $18.5 for express postage.
You are also able to pickup from us at Mt Barker SA – this is free!

Postage on Custom Signs

Postage costs on custom signs & items will be quoted along with your sign and generally starts from $15. Australia Post allow us to send items up to 105cm. If your item is larger than this we will use a courier & charges will apply at cost.

When will I receive my order?

Our processing times do vary, however aim to create & post all orders within 3-5 business days, however sometimes there are factors outside of our control that may effect this. Painted items require a minimum 1-2 week processing time to allow for multiple coats & drying time. Powdercoated items are outsourced to a small local business, and as this is a multistep process that requires curing time between each step please allow 2-3 weeks for processing.

What are the products made from?

While weathering steel is usually referred to by its trademark name COR-TEN (or Corten), we use an Australian made equivalent from Bluescope called REDCOR. It is known for its superior corrosion resistance and thickness. This is because the surface of the steel forms a protective oxide layer when  exposed to the weather. In other words, the steel is allowed to rust in order to protect itself. This protective surface layer continues to regenerate over years of exposure.

And it looks AMAZING!
