Care & Materials

We are so excited that you finally have your sign in your hands!

With your package, we have included an insert with instructions on how to unpack and hang your sign! But just in case, here's a few things you need to know:

If you ordered a laser cut name sign/set or cake topper:
Depending on the size, your signs will arrive adhered to a wooden backing or cardboard backing with masking tape (clear strips for cake toppers). 
This ensures that your sign remains secure during delivery! We have shipped thousands of signs worldwide and this has been our most successful packaging method! While mishandling can happen, it is a very rare and our clients rave about the security of our packaging!

To remove the sign from the backing, please lift gently and evenly from all sides working your way towards the center. 
This will allow the taping to loosen up and less likelihood of breakage happening. 
We don't recommend trying to pull or yank from one side only or your sign could break.

Our laser cut signs are 1/4” in thickness and due to the nature of our signs, they do not come with any hanging hardware. 

To hang, we recommend using extra strong 3M command tape and headless nails to hang. If you will be using it with a backdrop, then you can use fish line string!

Please note that laser cut signage is fragile and must be handled with care. Please be sure to fully secure your sign to the wall you will be mounting it on. We recommend that you do not pull or drop your sign. We don't recommend letting children play with them because they will break.


We have developed a really awesome painting technique that really surpasses what you will find elsewhere! We are known for the quality of our signs and our clients rave about our painting skills.

If you are a DIYer, we do offer unpainted options so you always have the option to paint it yourself! But if you have us paint it for you, I promise you won't regret it! ;)

The only exception to this rule would be our unfinished + stained signs. These are cut and pre-sanded for you, but will still have the black soot edging due to the laser cutting.

We have various size options to fit your needs! Our laser bed measures 48x36", so size options range up to 48" wide.
