We started creating our line of baby signs when we heard about a pertussis outbreak in our community. Pertussis is also known as Whooping Cough, and it is a very serious illness, especially for infants and toddlers. Although our babies were vaccinated, we were concerned with whether they had enough boosters to resist the disease, and if they'd still catch it, to what degree. Many infants require hospitalization if they come down with Pertussis. This is sometimes the case with the flu virus as well. Our car seat signs may help protect little ones from germs spread primarily through touch — including flu, strep and other nasty bugs.

So maybe you are a new or expecting parent, and you're thinking "Who would touch my baby without asking?" Answer: Lots of people! If you take your baby out in public, chances are good Baby *will* be touched, by adoring strangers who often don't even ask! The smaller the baby, the greater the chance. For us, this was such a problem with two adorable little girls, that we had to create our first sign, because stores did not sell them.

Over time we have added new products, including Heart Warrior signs, "Remove Your Shoes" signs, bathroom signs and some very unique bookmarks. Our signs and bookmarks are not sold in stores, so you can be confident that the gift you buy from us will be unique!



- You don't have to be confrontational or rude. The red "WARNING" on our signs makes them highly visible, so people will notice them and respect your wishes without you needing to utter a word. For car seat signs, the image is printed on both sides of the sign, which also improves visibility.

- Our signs are polite. They say PLEASE and THANK YOU. Our first sign was the "Mom will give you THE BOOT" sign, and when we first tried it out, it was a huge hit! People would stop to read it, ask where we got it and where they can get one. It got an extremely positive reaction. Most people *do* have a sense of humor.... Not one person we came across was offended, and most importantly, the touching stopped! (Note we are not claiming *no one* will ever be offended — after all, you can't please everyone.)

- Are you concerned about food allergies? You never know what that sweet old lady ate last, and what's still on her hands. Food allergies can be very serious, and while you still need to be very careful, our car seat signs may help.

If you need to cancel an order, please do so as soon as possible. Within the US, some of our orders are shipped the same day they are received.

If you cancel your order before we have shipped it, we will gladly issue a full refund.

If the order has shipped, you may "refuse" the package once it arrives, and it will be sent back to us. Once we've received the refused package, we will issue a refund within 30 days, minus any shipping costs paid by us to ship the item.

We ship to the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia. To all other countries, purchase through our website:


Most items ship via USPS Standard mail in either a rigid mailer or bubble mailer (depending on your purchase(s)). You will receive a tracking number.

We ship from Alaska (unless we're vacationing outside). Within the US, most shipments are delivered within 10 business days. (However, please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery: On rare occasions USPS incorrectly directs mail to the wrong state, etc. so the package may take a bit longer to reach you. We apologize if this happens, but please understand that this is out of our control.)



The buyer is responsible for providing a valid shipping address.

If the package is returned to us due to insufficient or wrong address, — the items returned to us are not personalized and the package is unopened — we will issue a refund, minus shipping (or minus any shipping and handling costs paid by us if the order shipped for free).


If you provide an incorrect address and the tracking shows the package has been "delivered" at said address, please make arrangements to retrieve the package at the address you provided. Under no circumstances will a refund be issued, nor replacements be sent for a package delivered to an incorrect address provided at the time of order.

NOTE: If the package is "REFUSED" at the incorrect address and thereby returned to us within 30 days, we will issue a refund, minus shipping, providing the contents are not personalized. ** All items must be returned in new condition in order for us to process the refund. **



To Canada, UK and Australia, please allow up to 7 days to ship (our post office is a 20-mile drive away and we ship orders 1-2 times a week). Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. We ship via USPS First Class International mail. Our shipping fees cover shipping, handling & transport.

Frequently asked questions
Can you customize my car seat sign?

Sorry, we can not customize any signs' wording, size or design for you at this time. All signs are preprinted, assembled, and ready to ship! Therefore, they can not be altered. Thank you.

How do I hang my baby's sign?

Each car seat sign comes with a FREE velcro strap for easy hanging from strollers and infant car seat carriers. (Colors may vary, while supplies last.)

Can you create a sign with Superman, Batman, Minnie Mouse, or other Disney characters?

No! Using such characters on handmade products would be copyright and/or trademark infringement, which is against the law. Please be wary of sellers who advertise such products—unless they have a license from companies like Disney (which is very hard and expensive to obtain), they are selling illegally.

We respect others' intellectual property rights. As an ethical business, and as artists ourselves, we license art legally, and would never violate U.S. copyright laws.

Is using a car seat sign "too much"?

IT'S NOT! As parents, our primary responsibility is to protect our children and ensure their well-being. Our signs are polite; they say PLEASE and THANK YOU.

Most people do not wash their hands after using the restroom. If people feel a sign is "too much", they are not really thinking about where people's hands go and what they do with them throughout the day! Newborns, infants and preemies have weak immune systems and have trouble regulating their body temperature. Catching a virus (and as a result, developing a fever) can be life-threatening!

Remember, your child's health is your top priority, and it comes before what others think.

Do you ship to other countries?

Yes. On Etsy, we ship to the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia.

 For all other countries, please order through our website,
