The Makery Design Center

Welcome to everything you need to know about our NEW Design Center!

This Design Center was opened as a place where you could come in on a whim or last minute and paint a wonderful sign for your home while spending time with your friends and family. We are open 5 days a week(M,W,F,Sat,Sun), and no reservation is required! Although, we do recommend you call ahead to check availability because we can only accommodate up to 12 guests at a time. Please be aware of the small space and limited parking when planning your trip to come visit us. The studio does close 90 minutes early if we don't have guests as it takes about 2 hours to paint a sign. 

Custom Designs: We are unable to do custom designs IN STUDIO but if you email our graphic designer in advance before you come in, we can absolutely do one for you. Rachel's email is Please note a $20 custom design fee will be applied. 

Different Size: If you're interested in making a different sized sign (smaller, bigger, square, etc.) we will now be able to do that on-site as well. For the larger sizes, you may need to come back so we can send out for your stencil, but we have a quick 3-5 business day turnaround. 

Pricing: We want this to be a truly unique and relaxing experience for you, hence the smaller group size. Therefore, prices will reflect this atmosphere. Please contact us with price inquires as they range from $35-$90. 

Private/Public Parties: We can also host your Private Party in our Party Space! Please e-mail for party inquiries!




The Design Center will be located in the New Maxi-Space Center next to Arco near the Steele St. exit by the 512 Fwy.
