FAQs about using 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
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. If you will have your print in a frame, 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 if my gift recipients don’t like their keepsake?
Since they’ll be working directly with the artist, they will have a chance to make changes and voice concerns before anything is produced. If they are not 100% satisfied with the artwork before it is produced, you are welcome to cancel your order for a full refund.
What if they want to order another product with their fingerprints?
A one-time fee will apply to custom fingerprints; once they have been digitized, they will be on file (unless customer requests for them to be deleted; physical copies are always shredded) and you can use them for other keepsake products at no additional cost. Reach out before ordering to find out how how to use fingerprints again.
