The Wooden Wall Sign lets players display a short message to other players. Edit the text as many times as needed with the use key (E, Y, Triangle). To add a second line of text, use <br>.

Line Length appears to be 30 characters before it automatically enters a new line (unless there are no spaces in which the text then extends off the sign).

The maximum amount of characters on a sign appears to be 160 and 6 lines max to fit on sign any more collides with nails or goes off sign completely


Wall signs attach directly to the face of walls, but do not snap to any structures. Care must be taken during placement as the texture of the wall behind can protrude through the sign itself.


  • The Wooden Wall Sign is treated as a wooden structure and can not be damaged by hands, stone weapons, or non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • The following aggressive creatures can not damage the Wooden Wall Sign:

Painting and Color Regions[]

In addition to its preset paint regions, you can doodle on the Wooden Wall Sign by "attacking" it with a Paintbrush Paintbrush, which will open the "Apply Paint" Menu. Then, click and drag your cursor over the 3D model (like a paintbrush) to draw anything you want. See Painting for more information on doodling.

For more information on Paint Regions and how to use them, please view the Blue Coloring Dye, Paintbrush Paintbrush, or Spray Painter Spray Painter pages.
