WINTER 2020 UPDATE: Our Canadian letter-boards are now made in Canada and are shipped from King City, ON via Canada Post. Our Barbados letter-boards continue to be made in and distributed from Barbados.
Due to Covid-19 the Barbados Postal Service is currently not accepting any International outgoing mail. There are other options such as DHL and Fed-Ex but they tend to be expensive. If you have friends travelling back to your country we can arrange to send boards with them.
Because of the above we have disabled the shipping calculator and on-line checkout and now deal with shipping details manually. Current payment options include interac eTransfer, Credit Card and Paypal.

About The Boards

We have two alphabets, one from the beautiful island of Barbados and the other from the equally beautiful Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. Both contain over 400 letters, numbers and symbols, each of which is captioned to show what it is and where it was shot. Images are mounted on 1/8” PVC and measure 4.5” x 2.7” and simply slot into the board. No glue, no tape, no nothing. Each board is hand-made from pine and then pickled with a water-based emulsion.
