  • Can you guarantee my order will be delivered by the date I need it?
    We ship all our orders as standard with USPS First Class or Priority Mail. These services are not insured against late delivery. While we fully commit to producing your order in the promised time, unfortunately we regret that we cannot be held responsible for late delivery on USPS's part. We strongly advise upgrading the delivery to Priority Express at an extra charge, should you need your order for a specific date. This service insures against late delivery.

    Your order includes 1 complimentary proof per item in the style selected + 1 minor adjustment. Minor adjustments include but not limited to: Changing the casing (on laser cut items) Changing the engraving template Changing engraving formatting Font changes are considered a major revision that requires our design team to create a new design from scratch.

  • Wall Letters & Signs
    The largest dimension we can cut a sign or name in one 'piece' is 24 inches. We cut our signs and names to between 36-42 inches in length but please note, due to these lengths being larger than our laser machine, the text will be in two pieces that connect together on the wall. We ensure the 'connect' line is in the most appropriate place in your text to make it blend seamlessly. Our recommended size for a single name to be hung in a nursery or as a backdrop for a dessert station is either the 36" size or 42" size depending on the length of the name and the overall look you're going for! Please keep in mind, overall sizing is dependent on the number of characters in the name. A longer name like "Catherine" will have smaller letters in comparison to "Anna" when they are scaled to a 36" width. All signs are designed to fit within a specific width and height to keep the scale and pricing consistent no matter the length of the name. Sign will be scaled to the largest width or height (for the listed size), whichever is met first.
