HOW TO USE as a guest book
What size do I need for my number of guests?
It is very difficult to predict length of guests' messages and size of writing, these are general estimates:


8x10: up to 40

11x14: 40-60

13x19: 60-85

16x20: 80-100

18x24: 100-125

24x36: 125-160 - If you have a large wedding, please include the number of guests at checkout to arrange a 10-15% artwork reduction. Enter information in the "Special Instructions" box at checkout.  It is advised that you measure a space sized 24x36 to get a sense of scale, it is a large size.

A3 and A2 sizes are international standard frame sizes.  For A3 60-80 signatures and A2 100-125.
Where do the guests sign?
Guest sign on the paper print or canvas.  For framed prints, you will want to put the front protector behind the print during your event so guests can sign and the print is still supported.  Then you can put the protector back into place to cover the signed print.

For gallery wrapped canvas, the guests sign directly on the canvas.  It is coated so the surface is smooth and markers write easily.
What kind of pen/marker should I use?
Sharpie's Extra Fine or Fine Point Permanent Marker.  Included with yourposter will be a swatch of the same material so you can test out differentpens/markers. Markers tested for color and quality are available here.

Wedding Guest Book Alternative

We are so happy with Flutterbye Prints! Amie was very responsive when I notified her of an issue with the print kit not being delivered to the post office and then again when our print became lost in the mail two weeks before our wedding! She remained in contact with me and made sure we received the final print. The print is absolutely beautiful and I would recommend to anyone!

Markers didn't work

I ordered this for our wedding reception and ordered the markers recommended. After a few people signed the markers quit working and no one was able to sign our guest book. Unfortunately we used this in place of a traditional guest book and don't have anything with our guest names and wishes.

I'm so very sorry for the problem with the markers. It seems there were some faulty ones in our supply. That brand has been taken out of inventory and new brands are being tested to replace it. The full refund provided won't fix it, but I do hope it provides some restitution. Thank you!
