Design Your Sign
To help give you an idea of how your final sign will look, we have a Sign Preview Generator where you can live preview all our standard fonts.
However, if none of those take your fancy you can choose from hundreds of free google fonts – just select “other” from the drop down and type your desired google font into the text box that appears.
We’re working on getting a direct checkout on the sign generator page but in the meantime, you may want to have a pen handy to make a note of your desired font.
You can find the sign generator here.
We offer several finishes – they include:
Unpainted, Sealed MDF – These signs are left as bear MDF with no finish, however we still use a clear seal so that they are ready to paint, should you wish to.
Vinyl Finish - Vinyl is the thinnest of the 3 different finishes and is almost sticker like, it give a smooth, even finish. Another benefit of vinyl is that it also comes in a huge variety of colours so if we don’t have the exact colour you’d like just let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
Mirrored HIPS – Similar to acrylic, HIPS or High Impact Polystyrene is a less expensive and more durable alternative to mirrored acrylic. It comes in gold, silver & rose gold and is 1.5mm thick.
Solid Acrylic – The most expensive but also the highest quality finish, acrylic also comes in a number of colour including metallic. Should we not have the colour you’d like as standard – just get in touch and we’ll see what we can find as an alternative. 3mm or 5mm thick depending on availability.
Glitter - We also now offer a real glitter finish! As with all the other finishes if we haven’t got the colour you want, just let us know – we have plenty more to choose from.
Optional Perspex Backing
As standard our signs come as individual words / letters each with D-Style fixings for hanging. Alternatively, depending on the sign and it’s use, you can opt for a Perspex backing for easy hanging.
Clear Perspex Strip Backing
If you take a look through the slideshow images you’ll see some signs we created for Specsavers (#LOVEGLASSES) – these have the strip backing – as you can imagine hanging each letter individually would have been extremely time-consuming and fiddly.
With the Perspex backing you save a lot of time and effort with no fiddling to get all the letters straight. Once hung – especially on a backdrop such as a flower wall the backing becomes almost invisible.
Clear Perspex Rectangle Backing
‘Slingsby Gin Logo’
We also created this sign for London Cocktail Week for Slingsby Gin and as you can see from the photos there are lots of intricate details and elements so in this instance the rectangle backing was a better option. It would have been impossible to line up each detail and letter if they were just hung directly onto the backdrop.
Digital Proofs with Dimensions
Once a purchase has been made, we will email you a digital proof with accurate dimensions to approve prior to us beginning the manufacturing process. Once the manufacturing has been started, any changes or errors (unless on our behalf of course) will incur additional charges.
N.B: We don’t charge for ‘&’’s or single characters as we don’t count them as a word so, for example if you were to order:
Laura & Andy – this would be a 2 word sign
Sugar & Spice – again a 2 word sign
Raining Cats & Dogs – would be a 3 word sign.
Hanging your Sign
We recommend either strong fishing line or cable ties for temporary fixings. D-rings (or something similar) are fixed to each individual letter/word for you to tie the sign to a backdrop or flower wall etc. We recommend attaching to the cross bar rather than the flower panel themselves.
In terms of a permanent fixture – as mentioned above each sign comes with D-rings but your choice of final fix will be dependent on your sign / situation.
It should be noted that, if you opt for a Perspex backing, there will be drilled holes as opposed to D-rings – this is so as not to spoil the invisible quality of the backing board.
Production & Shipping Times
Production takes approximately 2 weeks and will only begin once the digital proof has been approved. We will always squeeze in orders on a tight time frame if we can, so please get in touch if you need your order by a certain date that is less than 3 weeks away.
