If there’s one thing I’ve learned about gift giving…it’s this: give a quality gift. Never skimp on quality.
And give an interesting gift that won’t be forgotten in a month. How about something the recipient can enjoy for a lifetime because it’s meant to last that long?
Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, aren’t you ready to Deck the Halls with American Steel Designs, a company that creates one-of-a-kind handcrafted signs for year-round indoor or outdoor use?
High-quality signs fashioned out of 16-gauge steel that will last a lifetime because they won’t fade, rot, or splinter. Each one is powder coated in their special ovens to help prevent rust and corrosion.
Mind-blowing signs, the thickest metal signs that I’ve seen on the market. No flimsy big-box store sign in sight!
So it is with great pleasure I get to introduce you to American Steel Designs, an all-out USA-based company that boasts both beauty and function in their signage.
Better still…one very lucky winner gets a $250 gift code to their site with a second place winner claiming $50. I hope it’s you!

Why American Steel Designs?
There’s never been a better time than now to support small USA-based businesses.
When you buy from a USA-based business, such as American Steel Designs, you are supporting hardworking people just like you and me who are supporting their family’s.
I can’t believe how many small businesses I’ve seen shut down due to COVID and it’s sad. The only way to stop this trend is to purchase from companies located where we live.
So let’s stand behind an American company that only uses 100% American Steel sourced from American foundries and suppliers.
Handmade with skill by real artisans who know the business of metalworking with steel in Pine City, Minnesota. And with over 250 designs to choose from, you can’t go wrong!
Confession time: I had no idea where Pine City, MN was. So I googled it! Guess what. It’s the land of 10,000 lakes not to mention an old railway town. Love it.
Population 3,146. The 25 employees at American Steel Designs appreciate your patronage!
Stupendous selection, style and chicness with American Steel Designs!
I appreciate lots of choices in my home decor and bet you do as well. You are in luck with American Steel Designs who proudly boast over 250 products to select from.
For just about any theme you seek, American Steel Designs will likely have it.
Monogram, animal signs, musical signs, kitchen signs, nautical and coastal, patriotic, garden, and wildlife signs…American Steel Designs has it all. They even have his/her signs and ones that cater to small children for their unique spaces.
Each sign is handmade in a workshop right in Minnesota by true artisans who know their craft.
Quality for the ages. Oh, the joy in the details this holiday season! It’s hard to describe the intricate details in their pieces. You’ll just have to see them for yourself when you order!
American Steel Designs sent me three pieces to look over and each one was more fabulous than the next. I’m still marveling at the thickness and attention to detail of each product.
American Steel Designs for a showstopping display!
Is there anything worse than a blank, white wall? I doubt it. (That was a joke, folks.)
But seriously, every room in your home deserves a focal point. Blank walls are dreary, lifeless, and lacking in personality.
It’s time to enliven that space above your fireplace or behind the couch. Maybe the wall behind your piano is craving a musical note sign, or your son’s room requires a t-rex monogram sign.
Besides invigorating a space, you are providing your guests with something to talk about when conversation dwindles during those last-forever family parties.
I promise you this…they will ask where you got the sign. I know from personal experience. It was the first thing my mom said to me when she walked into my home and spotted the “In God We Trust” American Flag sign.
And the buck Christmas sign and gnomes got no less attention and heartfelt compliments from friends and relatives I can assure you!
It’s nice to feel like my home is edgy and trendy!
Flat and colorful decor for the win!
There are six people who live in my house. My house isn’t tiny, but still, we have lots of stuff crammed into little storage space. Storage is always difficult, is it not?
But metal signs are flat folks and storage is always a breeze!
I love those humongous Christmas light-up deer too. But where do they go during the off-season? The basement. Nope. That’s where the toys and kids’ clothes are stored.
Our attic is just a crawl space and our garage is full. Clearly, flat is the way to go, even for non-seasonal decor that you just want to switch up.
Speaking up spicing up life, you have lots of font choices to individualize your purchase.
And color your world with 10 color choices including white, silver, copper, gold, red, orange, blue, cyan, purple, and black. You can’t lose!
Make sure you keep the box your products are shipped in to store them later if you so choose to. If not, you can always use the box to smother weeds! It’s super heavy-duty.
Installation process of American Steel Designs…and size that counts!
Be aware that most products from American Steel Designs come with mounting holes but no hanging hardware is included.
This is preferable because you will want to select your own hardware. Depending on size, each sign will weigh more or less and you’ll want to personally select the hardware to get the job done right.
But additional mounting holes are available upon request!
You also have to decide whether to use your signs indoors or outdoors. If you attach your metal sign to an exterior wall your sign is going to obviously be exposed to the elements.
The last decision is size. Whether buying for yourself or a friend or relative, make sure you order the right size. Luckily, American Steel Signs offers various sizes of products to suit special spaces.
It’s kind of like buying a live Christmas tree, measuring is never a bad idea!
American Steel Designs creates signs anywhere from 18″ W x 18″ H to 42″ W x 42″ H and every size in-between. So it’s easy to order a size that will amply fill a bare wall and give it a purpose!
Sizing is approximate but within a 1/2 inch. Bigger custom signs available upon request!
Why no gifts cards allowed here!
I find that giving cash and gift cards at Christmas to be a cheerless and pathetic event. Gift cards = Grinch. Don’t agree with me?
Have you ever sat down to the family gift exchange only to find that everyone is just trading gift cards to the exact same store for the exact same amount? How is that not lame?
There’s no joy on anyone’s face because everyone got what they asked for. No element of surprise. I want to poke my eyes out I’m so bored by these mundane exchanges.
How about we think outside the box, or in this case, outside the gift card and bring some real thrills and chills this holiday season?
Imagine the joy you’ll create by watching a loved one open a gift that’s personal, inspiring, and unique.
American Steel Designs hits the mark. How about a new monogram sign for the newlyweds in your life? A wildlife sign for the outdoorsman, a musical sign for your niece, and a dinosaur for your rambunctious little nephew.
There’s even a Western collection for those with a sense of humor. Who doesn’t need a “Stampede Welcome Sign” on the front porch?
Besides, you are supporting a USA-based business over a big-box store and if that doesn’t warm your heart, nothing will!
Final thoughts on American Steel Designs…
So here’s a quick PSA. Make sure you order from American Steel Designs before December 12 to ensure your order arrives before Christmas.
In fact, I always think it’s a good idea to order Christmas presents as early as possible to give one plenty of time to wrap. Seriously. Wrapping presents is a 3-day event here!
At least they are flat and therefore fairly easy to wrap!
American Steel Signs are also easy on your wallet. Products start at $64.99 and climb based on size. So there’s a sign for every budget and every wall.
They even have awesome ornament and snowman stocking stuffers that will melt your heart!
Right now, they have a great offer with a BOGO deal. So buy a sign for your dad and get one for yourself at 1/2 half off. We all win!
So let’s deck the halls this season with American Steel Signs so we can all live the American Dream!
