Name signs are ordered by overall name WIDTH, not height. If you would like to know the exact height please request a proof with your order.
The Crown Jewel of the Nursery!
"The only thing in my nursery that I love more than this sign is my baby! This sign exceeded all expectations. The quality is top notch. I chose to get mine painted and I am so glad I did, I could never have achieved this paint finish at home. Will definitely be returning for more signs in the future!"

What will the height of my sign be?
What is the standard size for a name sign that will be placed over a crib?
There truly is no standard size, however we do have some general recommendations. Shorter names often do not need to exceed 24-36" wide, whereas longer names typically need 36" or more for a substantial statement on the wall. Generally speaking, the longer the name, the more width you will need to order. We recommend using our visual preview tools to best decide your size as the overall look and size will greatly depend on the font you select, the number of letters in your name and the width that you choose. We typically do not recommend sizes 18" wide and under for an over-the-crib look. Please remember signs are ordered by overall name width, NOT letter height.. A 12" wide sign is the length of a ruler with letters that are usually only a few inches tall.
What are your most popular fonts?
Our most popular font is our Arianna font. Other very popular choices are Aubree, Bella, Delilah, James, Seraphina, Cash and Sawyer, but we can't play favorites - we love them all! We encourage you to use our preview tools to see your name in all of our fonts to determine the font that best suits you.
How will I hang the sign? Is hardware included?
Hardware is not included as there are a few options for hanging and we encourage you to choose the method that best suits you.. If your walls are untextured, many customers find that using heavy duty 3M or Gorilla mounting tape is a very easy and effective way to hang our signs. Around 90% of our customers choose to hang this way. If you choose to use mounting tape please be sure that the wall and the back of the sign are free of dust/debris and closely follow the mounting instructions on the tape. Alternatively, some customers prefer to install a small sawtooth hanger into their sign (with nails no deeper than 3/8" deep as the sign is 1/2" thick) while others prefer to put nails in the wall and hang the sign from the loops of the letters. All of these methods work very effectively.
How long will it take to receive my sign?
Not exactly, but it will be VERY close. Here are the typical changes made: (1) we may thicken the font slightly to provide a more stable sign. We do not thicken every font but some calligraphy fonts are thickened in order to ensure the sign is strong enough to endure shipment and handling. (2) In most cases, if your 1st letter is disconnected from the rest of the name we will connect it to the rest of the letters so that we are shipping you a single piece to hang on the wall. This is also true for any loose letters or pieces of letters. For some fonts we may decide to keep the 1st letter disconnected if by connecting it we feel that the name loses legibility or simply looks off. (3) If you have a letter "i" or a "j" in your name then you will be asked when ordering if you prefer the dots to be connected or disconnected from the base of the letter. Our signs are custom and we are happy to create the sign as you direct us on these matters. Simply leave any additional connection related requests in the "Special Instructions" box that is available to you after you have added to cart. When in doubt, feel free to request a proof with options if you are unsure about how your sign will look.
