A poster-sized sign-in board provides a graphic alternative to the standard wedding guest book.

Suitable for framing!

Your guests inscribe their best wishes upon a drawn ribbon securing your initials with an elaborate knot. Not only meaningful, their handwritten comments add a beautiful varied texture to the piece.

In addition to your initials, the date, place, or wording such as "Help tie our knot" may be added to the ribbon.

The colors chosen can match the wedding or the place in the home where it will be displayed.

These examples show variations in composition and color choices.
The one at right shows the initials as copied from the monogram used on the invitation, the one at left shows the "coat of arms" of the groom's family as a central element.

The standard 20 by 30 inch board is suitable for a wedding of 150 people.

One that size costs $400. (Prices can vary with size and complexity.)

These will make a great wedding gifts. Make sure to ask the happy couple what colors they want. Don't surprise them at the last minute, as they may have planned for a traditional guest book.

Another wedding sign-in board is the one pictured here. This sort is more a standard contract. The text of the contract is written on the central stem. The leaves have places for the 80 or so guests to sign as witnesses. Here there's no room for the fun comments one sees in the sign-in boards shown above.

I have also calligraphed the standard Quaker Wedding contract. Usually I'll add some sort of illustration at the top.

This sign-in board was inspired by one of my maps. The couple loved it and wanted me to do something similar.

Their last names were modified to appear as the names of vast geographic regions. Mountains and railroads and swamps were among the geologic features I depicted on the map. Between the two countries was an ocean containing an island: the Island of Matrimonia.

You see two ships sailing from their home ports and landing at "Marital Bliss."

Guests were to add their names as geographic localities onto the large empty spaces provided.

I didn't mention that the bride and groom were world travellers, did I?

This sign-in board was 8 feet long when opened completely.

Another map sign-in board is pictured above. The guests were to write their comments on the light blue water with a darker blue ink creating a beautiful texture for th eoverall aesthetic. Variants of the names of the bride and groom are seen as the names of the two countries at the corners.
This sign in board has the (first) names of the immediate family and members of the bridal party listed in gold ink on the respective initialals. This extra detailing is more expensive, of course.
