Who provides the artwork for my sign?
For this listing, we'll design a script letter sign for you using the phrase or name you'd like. Choose from the font menu in the images and select your colour when you add to cart. No need to send us a file. We will send you an artwork proof for approval before making your sign.
Which size should I choose?
Decide on the width of your sign first. For a green wall sign it's typical to measure the width of your wall then subtract 24" (two feet). This leaves a buffer of one foot at either side of your sign. This is also a good rule of thumb for spaces with defined end points such as a head table or entranceway wall.
For large spaces where the sign will hang above one small area, such as a crib or sofa, it's better to base the width on the object it will hang above. Measure the width of the item (crib, sofa, desk...) and subtract 20%, as a rule of thumb.
Always use your judgement and hold a measuring tape up where your sign will be to make sure you like the size. There are no exchanges or refunds on custom signs.
When it arrives your sign will match the width of the sign footprint you've purchased. Because of the text proportions, it will not match the height. To understand proportions please read our blog post - How Do I Order A Sign For My Business?
To decide on height you can assume each line will consume 12" of height. For example:
1 line sign = 12" tall.
2 line sign = 24" tall.
3 line sign = 36" tall.
And so on. If we see a large discrepancy in your order we'll let you know before proceeding. Otherwise, this rule of thumb generally works. Remember, your sign will not match these height measurements. Please see the note on proportions above.

Do you install?
Not at this time. We specialize in supplying artists and designers with custom cutting for their projects. Many of our clients are self-sufficient DIYers who prefer low prices over access to installation services. We ship finished signs with installation instructions and allow our clients to install it themselves.
If you don't feel comfortable doing this, we recommend hiring an artist, craftsperson or contractor in your local area to help with the installation.
How do I hang my sign?
Cut letter signs do NOT arrive with loops at the back for hanging.
For weddings and events, we suggest hanging cut letter signs using fishing line. Fishing line hides well and can be positioned to hang the sign anywhere it's needed: above flower arrangements, against a boxwood wall, etc. If more help is needed to secure the sign Command Strips can be used in combination with fishing line: http://amzn.to/2fyDJL7 This method of install leaves the venue/rentals with no damage.
For temporary installation we recommend using fine finishing nails. Mark the nail locations (tuck them into the arcs and corners of the lettering). Then tap the nails in to the wall. Hang your sign on the nails. This style of install leaves minimal damage. It's ideal for home offices, home decor and nurseries.
For permanent installation, such as in an office or retail space, lettering can be permanently flush mounted to the wall using construction adhesive. Construction adhesive is available at most hardware stores and is applied using a caulking gun. If the sign needs to be removed it will strip the first layer of paint or paper from the drywall. Removing it will require patching. Small and fine lettering (where construction adhesive would be much too messy) should be applied using a tube of fine-tip superglue. We recommend this style of install where durability, high traffic or the possibility of theft makes permanent desirable.
What are some tips for working with my sign?
Please handle it carefully. Wood signs are fragile. Never twist or pry them as they could break. Calligraphy and script letter signs may need to be supported with both hands while being moved.
Is there anything I should know about ordering a metallic finish?
Metallic finishes are delicate, especially gold. We recommend handling your sign by its back or edges. Please avoid touching the face. Even with careful handling, metallic finishes will accrue a patina over time. That can include chips, marks, black spots, fingerprints, etc. All signs will transition from metallic to antique metallic.
