You choose:
Any in my shop, or any other color you have in mind (even a favorite sports team color). Use your wedding colors, your school colors, the nursery colors, or just your favorite colors.
I have too many to list, but if there is a particular font or style you are looking for, let me know! I probably have it, or something similar.
This can really be anything that will fit on the sign.
This listing includes a 17 by 4.5 inch OR an 18 by 4 inch sign OR a thinner 13 by 5 inch sign for the dog to wear.

The 17 by 4.5 inch sign is great for placing in front of a dog(s) or for holding.

The 18 by 4 inch size is best for longer messages (full last names). It can also stand up by itself. See above if you would like ribbon.

The 13 by 5 inch size is best for little dogs to wear (under 20 lbs). It is lighter, so they will cooperate more readily and be more comfortable.

Ribbon, rope and free-standing your sign are all options. If you look through the photos you will see a number of ways to use these signs.

♥ Ribbon:
I have a number of colors available here: https://img0.etsystatic.com/021/0/6246384/il_fullxfull.479145016_ttxu.jpg. Generally I choose a color complimentary to your sign, but feel free to specify. If you are looking for something not listed, don't be afraid to ask. The ribbon will be tied off at one end, but left untied at the other so that you can adjust it to the correct size.

♥ Rope:
A basic sisal rope in tan. Excellent for rustic or nautical looks. The rope will be tied off at one end, but left untied at the other so that you can adjust it to the correct size.

♥ Free-standing:
This is the option to choose if you know you will not try to have the dog wear it for the photo shoot. This could be if there are multiple dogs, or you intend to hold the sign, or you simply don't expect Fido to cooperate. In order for these signs to still be hung on the wall after their use as a photo prop, I include a sawtooth hanger.

The 3 by 5 inch size will have a small hole drilled for standing it up. The other sizes are 3/4 inch thick pine and will stand on their own.

I am pretty quick to produce these signs (1-4 days in most cases). If there is ever a delay for any reason in my processing times it will be noted in my shop announcements. I ship Priority Mail within the US. If you need it faster, let me know and I can get you a quote for Express Mail. International orders will ship First Class International.

In the "buyer's notes" section or in a separate "conversation", please tell me the details. You can either describe what you are looking for, or even attach an image if you wish. Most orders are as simple as stating the wording, "Baby X Guard Dog Duty Starts XXXX" and the colors, "black background, white lettering". However, as you'll notice when looking through the photo album, you can get creative with these!

♥ Please keep an eye on your Etsy messages after ordering. I will send you a mock-up/proof of what your sign will look like. I will need your approval to get started. I want it to look the way that you want it to!

Frequently asked questions about GreenChickens

Most orders are out the door within three business days. This depends, of course, on volume of business. Orders that involve multiple signs (such as the Farm Stand listings) may take longer.

If you are ordering a custom sign, please keep an eye on your inbox for your mock-up. I'll need your approval to start on the item.
I ship orders within the US via Priority Mail, excluding some very small signs that may go First Class. This is a 2-3 day service. Express Mail is faster (1-2 days guaranteed), but considerably more expensive. If you would like a quote for an upgrade, please send me a message including your zip code prior to purchasing the listing.

International orders ship via First Class International. In most cases, this take 7-10 days, but given extra distance and customs being unpredictable, it can take 3 weeks. Global Priority Mail is a more guaranteed and slightly faster method. Please send a message with your location for a quote.

I have a number of listings for signs that are priced for custom lettering. If you are ordering from a listing with "custom" in the title, and the size you are looking for falls within those parameters, simply add that item to your cart and be sure to include your instructions in the "notes to" section at check-out.

If you would like something else custom that doesn't fit those guidelines, click the "request custom item" button, or send a message for a quote. I can set you up a custom listing. I have LOTS of colors, and I can do different fonts, sizes, silhouettes, etc. I will provide a mock-up that will be the best approximation of what the finished product will look like.
I have or can make any color that you would like! To get ideas, you can always look through other items in my shop, or https://instagram.com/lajaponaise7/.

Put any color choices in the "notes to" box at check-out.
Anything that fits! If you are ordering a sign that is priced for custom lettering, it can say whatever you would like, provided that I can fit it on the sign. I will send a mock-up of custom designs before creating them for your approval. I have yet to see a last name that I can't fit on a sign.
