Q. My child's name is hyphenated how do I order this

The price for all items is for one word only, if your child has a name like Kate Lea this is classed as 2 names.so pop 2 in the quantity box, because they are not joined, if your child has a name,  Kate-lea joined that comes under one word, and is still under the 0-7 letters,  

2 capitals letters means 2 Words/names joined or separate.

Q. How come our names are too long to have joined?

The joined signs are a maximum length of 90cm, and 12 letters including the symbol,  if your sign is over this they will automatically be made into 3 separate  pieces, as they become too fragile to post,

 Q. Why do the y's and g's, p's etc  look different on the free standing signs 

We need to raise the letters with tails to let them stand on their own, so letters like ygpqz are bought up to meet the other letters please see the examples in the photos, this doesn't apply to hanging signs they remain the same 

Q. What is the difference between Personalised and Custom ?

All of our items are personalised with your name , we just need to change the template to a different name,  Where as custom design  is made from scratch with either your drawing or idea it is not something we already have on our website , or have a template set up for, we work with you to get the design you require, one on one with the graphic designer. 

Q. What does it mean when you say 15 cm, 20 cm, 30 cm is that the length?

No it means the height, of the first capital,and all letters that have tails o All  signs are made with a capital letter at the beginning, and the capitals are what determines the size, so if you want a sign that is 20cm then the rest of the letters are to scale eg 20cm for the caps and approx 10-15 cm for lower case,so if you order all lower case 20cm they will be approx 10-15cm only.   The lengths vary with the length of the name and the fonts, fonts such as traditional and elegant can be very long so consider this when ordering 30cm signs, NB . if you order all lower case it will still be determined by the capitol. 

QQ I seem to have trouble placing  my order.?

Q. How do the Wedding names stand ?

All our free standing signs are made from 18mm thick MDF, being this  thick enables  them to stand on there own  without any stands, but if knocked they may topple over or in a windy situation

No we only ship to Australia, due to the cost of shipping out of Australia
