Creative Kids and Custom Signs

Sometimes all you need is a creative mind, and you’ll have an instant piece of art.

Crafting and being creative at home is a treat when it comes to being a parent. But, sometimes it’s hard to let your child be themselves with their creativity. Here’s a project that will encourage each child to reach deep inside to discover their truly unique self.

Adding a door sign to a child’s room is the perfect touch to help them be themselves. Custom signs are perfect for bedrooms, playrooms, bathrooms and even a nursery.

Design custom signs with your text, logo and graphics. Use for your business, name a cabin or room, present an inspirational quote. Choose the size, color, font, text and an optional logo or graphic to create the perfect sign for your office, home, or to give as a gift for a friend, loved one or yourself.

This project takes these custom signs to a new level of creativity.

Both of these signs were drawn entirely by hand! Once the drawings were complete, a little bit of clean up was necessary. By tracing the lines with a permanent marker, the lines became clearer and sharper so that it was easier to engrave into an actual door sign.

As no other adjustments were made other than the tracing, these signs can be customized to meet any bit of creativity. Just sit down with a pencil and eraser and have at it! While these drawings are the musings of preteen boys, it isn’t a project limited to just a child. Make a sign for an adult’s room, the laundry room or even your garage door.

Each custom sign created this way must go through a particular process. We started with a plain, white piece of paper which was trimmed to the size of the sign we wanted. The children then drew away with a pencil and had an eraser handy for correcting. Once the child finished their artwork, a parent used a black permanent marker to trace the drawing onto a new, cut to size, blank, white paper. The tracing was done to create a clean, black and white image that could be scanned into a digital format. If you would like to attempt such a project, please call for more information before submitting an order.

These signs were hung with a strong, double-sided tape. Other fastener options include magnetic tape and Velcro. But, no matter what adhesive is your choice, these fun and unique signs are sure to be a hit with your child. And remember that when making a custom sign, being creative is the name of this game!

Start School Right with Custom Lanyards

Quickly identify students and staff during school with custom lanyards and name badges.

Teachers, students and other employees are entering school buildings once again for another year of fun and learning. Classrooms everywhere are bustling with noisy children and activities throughout the rest of the building. And teachers need a way of keeping these kids secure.

Whether it’s hundreds or thousands, it doesn’t matter how many kids are coming back to your school this year. Security is always an issue. Yes, there are name tags and photo ID badges for the teachers. But how do the children keep their things safe and secure?

using custom lanyards for all your back to school needs and eventsLanyards are a convenient way of displaying identification and other things while at school. And these lanyards don’t have to be boring. Choose from a variety of colors to match your school and mascot!

Students and staff will have fun showing off their school spirit with custom lanyards. Each lanyard will be custom made to your creation. Add features such as your school’s name, slogan, colors, mascot and logo. Another fun feature could be the academic year.

Displaying Your Name Plate

While name plates are common in most workplaces, we all need them for different reasons.

And, many of us have a desk or cubicle at work, so it’s easy to display that coveted piece of personal identification. And while most name plates have a name and title, some are used for other reasons around the office.

display a name plate easily with a variety of holders and methods at your office or on your desk

Name plates easily sit on a corner or small portion of your desk.

There are many ways to accomplish this useful tool. Use a traditional metal desk holder for your plastic or metal engraved name plate. These sit conveniently on the corner of any desk so that they are visible to passersby. Another option is to choose an acrylic desk block or executive desk wedge. These options, while a little less traditional, actually offer an upgrade to your name plate look.

Another option for a desk top is the plastic desk base. This classy item fits most designs and still allow the nameplate to sit on the corner of your desk comfortably. Or, be a little less traditional and set it on your computer monitor or tower.

Attach a name plate to the front of a desk.

Using either a wall mount or adhesive, attach the plate on the front of your desk. This idea is perfect for the current trend of standing desks. That way, no matter the height of your desk, your name plate will always be visible. Choose from Velcro, magnets or double-sided tape to accomplish this simple, yet effective presentation.
