Striped Personalized 46" color washed paddles for nautical wedding guest books. If you are planning a nautical themed wedding or beach wedding, try this Made In America pair of 46" striped, distressed washed personalized paddles as functional art by using them as your nautical wedding guest book. Your guests sign with permanent markers at the wedding. Hang the pair post wedding to remember all who shared in your perfect day.

Guests can sign the front of the oar/paddles with waterproof Sharpies. How many signatures on a paddle? Well, that's always speculative since not everyone writes small. I used my thumbprint as a guide and guesstimate that if you use Ultra Fine Point Sharpie's, you may be able to get 50+/- signatures per paddle with a short message as long as they keep it thumbprint size. Please see Photos for guesstimates of my paddles and oars.

The photo in the listing is representative of the paddles you will receive. Because they are made from wood and by human hands, each one will be slightly different.
