Say something with a piece of history
“Hanging out your shingle” goes back to the early days of our country when many professionals worked out of their homes. They would often use a roof tile, or shingle, as the surface to post their name and the type of service near the front door.
Shack Shingles make great gifts and are perfect for that “Man Cave” or “She Shed”.
Now you too can “Hang out your shingle”. Learn more below.
Here's how they're made
One weekend a year, England Prairie Pioneer Club cuts wooden shingles using a shingle mill patented in 1872 by N.H. Bolton Machine of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Here is a short video of the mill in action.
The shingles are then lightly sanded and a clear coating is applied to preserve the wood.
Then the various phrases are hand applied.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of every “Shack Shingle” goes to help support the England Prairie Pioneer Club.
