How to Use Your Signature Board

Think of a milestone moment where you were surrounded by people you loved. Oftentimes, it’s nice to remember the happiness shared by everyone there, which is why a signature board is a staple piece for any special occasion.

This keepsake allows you to get special notes from everyone and store them all in one place. The boards are commonly used for weddings, but retirements, graduations, and other milestone events are also great options!

When using the signature board, there are a few things you want to keep in mind:

    1. Guest list: Make sure you know approximately how many people will be attending the event. If you need room for 50 guests, it’s best to choose the frame designated for the number of guests and print the photo based on this frame. This allows the best proportion for your photo and space needed for writing.

    2. The photo you’re framing: Pick a photo that captures the moment how you want to remember it. If it’s a wedding, we like choosing a timeless black and white photo. For a retirement party or graduation, opt for a color photo to capture the brightness and joy from this special event.

    3. Signing pen: Using the correct pen is essential in having signatures readable and long-lasting. It can change the entire look of your guest board, so be sure to pay close attention to this detail. Check out all our top five recommended pen options here:

    4. Getting the signatures: It’s best to lay the framed signature board on a flat surface. The signature board should be in the frame with the glass removed or behind it for signing purposes. Keeping the board in the frame will prevent guest from signing outside of the viewable area/having their message cut off. 

With these tips, your signature board will stand out at your next event. You’ll be glad to have the notes from friends and family stored in one place for years to come. Shop our signature board collection at:
