People often ask, how do I go about having a bespoke circus sign made for my home, business or event? Is it more expensive? Do I have to know special stuff before we can do it? How much will it cost me? Well hopefully this post will answer some of the questions as I explain how the process works.
We have customers who want a bespoke fairground sign for their home, business or event. We can make a sign for all of these purposes.
Who Orders a Bespoke Circus Sign?
So can anyone have a bespoke sign made? Yes of course! We absolutely love the eclectic mix of customers who come & have a circus style sign made for them.
Design & Consultation is free & there is no obligation to go ahead with the order. Instalment plans are available & postage and packing is free.
When a customer gets in touch they are usually from one of these three camps. The first camp is the ‘OMG I’ve just discovered your work online and I absolutely LOVE it!! It’s just what I’ve been looking for, can you make me a sign that says Tra La Te Da!…..’
Or you have the second camp that says ‘We have been looking at your website for ages and ages & haven’t been able to decide on what word we wanted on a sign but we knew we WANTED one.. and now we’ve made a decision-YAY!’
Or the third camp that say ‘I’ve got this wall space that we’re redecorating & I’ve just discovered your work and I’d LOVE to have one of your signs up there I love your Welcome to the Circus sign but could I have it say ‘Welcome to Our House’ and have it in another colour please?’
Oh and there’s a fourth camp that says ‘Can you make us a sign with the name of our CAT on it!!!’ actually that’s not a camp it’s a one off… bizarrely!
How Do We Create the Designs
You’ll be pleased to hear we don’t expect you to just imagine the sign in your lovely heads. I send you over a set of designs, with different colours, fonts and layouts. So for example one of my recent customers Hannah enquired about a ‘Let’s Dance’ Circus Sign, with colours influenced by her home & to hang in her Kitchen. So I gave her a quote which she was more than happy with & I set about creating her some designs. Now this is where the fun begins & I always get carried away & make a few too many.
The initial designs are sent over as a PDF via email for you to peruse at leisure. Here’s an example of the one I sent out to Hannah.
Hannah was a combo of Camp 1 & Camp 2, she had literally just discovered us & was over the moon… ‘I’ve always wanted a sign like this & have never found ANYWHERE that does them’ (I obviously need to work on that!) She knew the words that she wanted & for it to coordinate with her beautiful home (Warning: House envy coming up).
Hannah sent me lots of lovely photos of her house, so that I could colour match the sign with her decor. I can colour match to anything; your sofa, favourite cushion, paintwork, the list is endless.
Ultimately we have created a bespoke carnival sign with bright circus fonts, multi coloured fairground lights & colours inspired by the Freda Kahlo cushions & Hannahs lovely home. Essentially Hannah now owns a circus sign that encourages much dancing around the kitchen!
How Long Does it Take?
We usually take 2 weeks to make your sign & get it delivered to you from the date we receive your payment. Payment can either be in full or a 50% deposit can be made to secure your sign & then the final 50% before we send it out.
We like to send your circus sign out on a Thursday with FREE next day delivery through ParcelForce . If however, for any reason, such as in Hannahs case, she asked to have it delivered earlier, (so she could have it at her Birthday Party) we will absolutely try & accommodate you & your deadline as much as possible.
We love to hear feedback from our customers, some leave reviews, some send an email of thanks & some post on their Instagram feeds and tag us in.
We always send a personal note of thanks
Taking pride of place in the Kitchen
