Where do I begin if I want to order something custom?

You can start by filling Custom Order Inquiry Form! Please include as many details as you can to speed up the process. 

What determines the price?

We look at a few factors when we quote you: dimensions, the intricacy of the design, and the material. We’ll work with you to suggest the best option that will fit your budget.

What materials do you offer?

Wood (we predominantly use Baltic Birch Plywood), acrylic, mirror acrylic, and cardboard.

What colours do you offer?

We offer all colours in the spectrum! Here's our standard colours:

If you have a specific colour in mind, we can match it as close as possible for an additional $10 per colour.

For mirror acrylic, we offer gold, silver, and rose gold.

How big can you make the items?

  • Wood: Unlimited size, we’ve laser cut things as wide as 9 feet and as tiny as 1/2 inches.

  • Acrylic: The board size is unlimited, however we can only do a seamless one-piece as up to 29” x 17” 

  • Mirror acrylic: 24” x 12”

What’s the turnaround time?

Set Up

How do I attach the sign to the backdrop I rented?

We provide a generous roll of fishing line with every signage purchase and rental. Just tie it around the highest point of your signage and hang the other end onto the photo wall. If you want to permanently attach it to a smooth wall, please do let us know and we’ll prepare the sign that way.
