.....................................................................
SIZES
.....................................................................

The sample photo shows 130 spots. I can create any size with any number of spots, the size of the shapes increasing and decreasing proportionately. The size is really a matter of personal preference, and depends on whether you expect couples to sign together (most common) or separately, whether you expect guests to include a message, as opposed to just a signature etc. When in doubt, I'd always suggest going LARGER, rather than smaller, but here are suggested sizes:

▷ up to 50 spots … 11” x 14” (or larger)
▷ 50 – 100 spots … 16” x 20” (or larger)
▷ 100 – 150 spots … 18” x 24” (or larger)
▷ 150 – 250 spots … 24" x 36"
▷ 250 + spots … 36” x 48”

.....................................................................
PRINTING / FRAMING etc
.....................................................................

➤ PAPER ➤ Printed on heavyweight matte paper using archival-quality inks. This print will need to be framed. I suggest framing before the event, but leaving the glass out until after your guests sign. You can add a wood frame here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/519936659/frame

➤ FOAM BOARD ➤ Printed on heavyweight matte paper using archival-quality inks, and mounted on 3/16" clay-coated white foam board. Eliminates the need to frame your sign, ideal for displaying on an easel.

➤ CANVAS ➤ Printed on 3/4" wooden-framed, gallery-wrapped canvas, this is the most popular option. Great for displaying your sign on an easel, or for hanging, with the hardware included! Especially recommended for outdoor display, makes a truly lasting keepsake!

➤ DIY PRINTABLE FILE ➤ Bring file to printer of your choice. Some suggestions: Staples, OfficeMax, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Vistaprint.com, CanvasPop.com, Zazzle.com, Shortrunprints.com.

➤ PENS ➤ I recommend providing your guests with archival-quality pens (such as Sakura jelly roll). You should be able to find those at a craft store such as Michael’s, or on Amazon. I do not recommend Sharpies, or any other non-archival pens, as they may fade over time. Please keep in mind that you’ll need a light-colored and/or metallic pen if your background is dark.

.....................................................................
A NOTE ABOUT METALLICS
.....................................................................

I am often asked how to print these. This design does not use metallic ink, or actual glitter. It's a digital faux metallic image, which imitates the look of metallic ink/foil, including the highlights and shadows created by light. It is printed on any regular white background. My customers have been very happy with the results this creates.

.....................................................................
REVISIONS
.....................................................................

Two rounds of revisions are included if needed.
Revisions can take up to 2 business days.
Please note that multiple VERSIONS are not included as revisions.
