Our Story

  • Our Story:

    Hello, Im Emma...  I am a mum of 3 and I have been making and hand painting wood signs since 2011.  I design every sign, assemble, paint and distress by hand.  I use reclaimed/repurposed wood, which means each piece is unique thanks to the imperfections such as nail holes, dings, knots.  I make no attempt to hide or cover these as this is what makes our signs unique and perfectly imperfect.  Even with imperfections we can create something beautiful. They look stunning on the walls of your home or really do make that perfect special unique gift.I am a small business yet I offer a huge amount of choice on products -  sizes, colours and even frame styles!  As most products are made to order they can be adapted to suit you.

    The Beginning

    It all began, originally under the name Jacques Designs in 2011.  However, following a really tough year, personally, I decided to start again from scratch.  I felt an immense desire to find a purpose!  The Imperfect Wood Company was born.  You will notice that the majority of my makes are to do with being positive and changing our negative thought processes into positive ones.  Quotes have always featured in my life but I didn't realise  just how much I would actually need them!  They help me enormously to cope with situations, whether it be because I'm having a bad day, full of anxiety or coping with grief.


    All of the wood for my signs and frames have been used in another way before. The suppliers of the wood are a community business saving wood from landfill and chipping, as well as providing volunteering opportunities for the community. Since they opened in 2013 they have saved 7,000 tons of wood from landfill.The way I see it, is that the reusing of the wood, making it into something better with effort, is the same as the reusing of our thoughts and turning negative thoughts around.  Trying to be open minded rather than having fixed mindsets.  It takes effort but is possible.  Going through the grieving process gave me a real insight into how difficult this is, and without the right support, it can feel like an impossible task. This is why supporting Mental Health means a lot to me. I believe that a positive mindset is the key, and my signs are primarily designed to help us think positively.  If a few signs can make a difference to one persons mindset then that's enough for me.

    Supporting Others

    Through my business, I donate a percentage of sales to three national charities close to my heart. The first is the Selective Mutism Information & Research Association (SMIRA), who were extremely useful when I was coping with my daughter’s Selective Mutism throughout primary school. The second and third charities were chosen in memory of my two eldest children’s daddy: Brain Tumour Research, because he passed away from a brain tumour aged 43 at the end of 2018; and Mind, because he had spent some time on a mental health unit, due to his brain tumour – providing me with an insight into his condition and mental ill health in a wider context.  I believe we as humans are here to help each other.  My way of doing that is by making these signs to be put up in your homes, to help you get through tough times, or simply to act as reminders - something we all need from time to time.

    Thank you for being here.
