    Ah, just seen this after replying to your previous post and now see what the question really was.

    Answer in many cases is the same, though - people design their own. For things like house signs, Vectric Vcarve (or one of their other products in the range) is difficult to beat but not cheap. Can save a lot of time, though. It comes with a library of motifs and similar, and you can buy other designs (but I haven't done this myself so no idea of prices and so on).

    Otherwise, there are some 3D CAD packages (Fusion 360, Solid Edge, for example) that quite a few of us use. There are also some freeware CAD and other design packages around that others prefer.

    The nameplate for my own house includes a relief carving of a badger's head that was derived from a series of photographs of a model badger, processed by some clever software that is no longer available, and turned into a machinable model via Vectric 3D. That's one route, but don't try to make a profit going down that path - it took me ages.
