Yay! If you found yourself here, you want to learn more about how our sign-making and sign-making parties work. Read on for the details.
Rustic wooden signs are trending right now. You can find them everywhere, especially in large retail stores like Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Target, HomeGoods, Michaels, and Kirkland's. However, few of them are made from real wood. They have the look of being rustic and old, but often aren't authentically rustic and old. We didn't want our signs to have the look and feel of being mass-manufactured. We wanted each one to be truly unique and genuinely handmade. What sets our signs apart is that all of them are made from reclaimed wood. Sure, we could go to Home Depot and buy beautiful crisp, clean boards. But, we didn't want perfect and clean. We wanted our signs to have as much history and character behind them as the people who receive them or make them. For that reason, we source our lumber from abandoned barns, industrial sites, railway stations, and similar sites. We then clean and sanitize the boards so they are safe and hazard-free before they ever get in your hands. What's more, in keeping with our desire to remain as natural as possible, all of our paints, varnishes, and stains are toxin-free.
Most signs are 12x12. We chose this size so that the sign-making experience is manageable and enjoyable for most any age group. Custom sizes are available, but will be based on the wood we have on-hand. Email me for details or requests @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost per person to make a 12X12 sign is $30 (Pine) $40 (Oak). Prices vary for custom sizes. Please email email@example.com for a custom quote.
Although making the sign is not a difficult task, it can be time consuming, so we recommend parties of 12 people or fewer. However, if you have a larger party, with enough notice, we can find additional help to ensure the process runs smoothly and that anyone who needs individual assistance gets it in a timely manner.
Plan on two-three (2-3) hours to complete a sign. Two hours is best case scenario with no delays. Three hours is more realistic. Large parties may require more time simply because of the numbers.
We use a stencil making machine to produce the vinyl stencils. It comes with custom software with the latest in trending art and phrases. I will work with you to pick out the stencils you prefer so they will be on-hand and ready at the time of your party. We recommend providing two to three (2-3) stencil choices for your invited guests.
For parties where each individual will pay for him or herself, payment may be made by each guest at the time of the party. No minimum number of guests is required. It could just be you and me. :)
For birthdays or similar celebrations, where a single individual is covering the entire cost of the party, we require a 15% deposit at the time of booking. The remainder of the party costs may be paid in full the day of the party.
We accept cash, credit and charge. Checks can be made payable to Glory B's.
We can host the party at our location, or you can host at the site/location of your choice. All materials are provided, and set-up and clean-up services are provided.
