Muskoka Cottage Trays

Our Design Process 

Customized Lettered Trays & More

Each Personalized Tray / Sign is made from Pine Laminate, sanded, painted, hand lettered, and sealed with at least 4 coats of varathane.  We suggest using a coaster in case of heat or watermarks. The lettering is done in white on a black background and then the tray is antiqued and distressed.


 Consider these ideas to give a Muskoka Cottage Tray: 

  •  Wedding Gift for the Bride and Groom.  Bridal Party Gifts.
  • Housewarming  / Birthdays / Anniversary / Retirement / Christmas / Graduation
  • Gift to Teacher, Sports Instructor, or just because. 

​Remember... you pick the words and we do the rest!

We need a variety of short lettered and long lettered words to create the perfect effect.
If you want Capitals on words, please use them on your list.  Show any dates as you would like them, ie: Jan 1st 1999 or 01-01-99.  List words from most important to least important just in case there are a couple I can't fit on.

Choosing your words:  

  • Special occasion - holidays  
  • Accomplishments
  • Nicknames - funny sayings
  • Important dates - birthdays - anniversaries - first date - engagement
  • Family names - pets
  • Childhood memories - sports - hobbies - schools attended
  • ​Important addresses

It depends on the size of the tray/sign as to how many words we would need to work with.

For example:  16 x 16" (approx 26-30 words) or 18 x 18"  (approx 30-36 words.)

It's so much fun picking just the right words.
