A great personalised gift idea for any farmer with a working Border Collie – these bespoke weathervanes can be cut or painted to match the markings on their dog. All we’d need is a side on photo of the dog and then we can get to work. The stance we’ve drawn the dogs in really shows off their personality, and with them being so customisable, these weathervanes make a truly unique gift. We love the photo above, sent in earlier this year – it’s definitely a strong contender for photo of the year 2018!
A fantastic photo of our Velocette motorbike weathervane! It’s a really clear image showing the detail of the design; the spokes, the springs beneath the seat and even the engine fins are highlighted, making this weathervane design instantly recognisable to anyone who knows their vintage bikes. We can create designs for weathervanes, signs and hooks based on any motorbike – a great personalised gift for a biker.

Another great photo sent in via email showing one of our bespoke weathervanes insitu! The customer had ordered our ‘Cat chasing dogs’ weathervane, featuring a Labrador and Border Terrier, but then realised there was no extra charge for bespoke designs. So he asked if we could alter the design he’d ordered to feature his dogs; a Spaniel, Pointer and Labrador. Though I found it quite difficult to draw the specific breeds in action poses, this was a really fun one to do and I love the result as I think it shows the personality of all the animals. Fantastic to be able to personalise a weathervane in this way!
