Wooden Deer Puzzle Guest Book Alternative
This romantic wooden puzzle is a cute deer duo, a perfect guest book alternative. This truly is a unique, fun, and exciting way to involve guests at any event. Of course, it’s great for weddings, but also family reunions, birthdays, fundraisers, etc. It’s a great addition to any event; guests enjoy signing the pieces and you’ll enjoy cherishing it for a lifetime. Frame it and hang it on your wall, or challenge yourself by putting it back together down the road.
This puzzle always comes with a border, and it’s on the border where your personalization is engraved.
Usually, the engraved text is in three separate lines, of center aligned text: The first names on the top line, the last name in the middle line (with the font made bigger) and the date on the last line of text. But that doesn’t mean you have to do this. We can engrave whatever you want in that space, in as few or as many lines of text you want. There is plenty of space on the border where the engraving goes.
We’ll format the text to look as best as possible. Or, you can be specific and describe to us what you’re looking for in as much detail as possible. If you can’t fit all the words in the personalization text box, there is also an order notes section (which you’ll find during checkout) where you can add more information for us.
These are good-sized puzzles! The puzzle pieces are all different in shape and size, and decently sized. This allows a good amount of space for guests to write on, certainly more than just a name or two. You can choose from the 25-, 50-, 75-, 100-, 150-piece deer puzzles. We hope to have a 200 piece and larger size puzzle in the future.
There are various fonts you can choose from for this item. They are included in one of the pictures, with a letter symbolizing each. If you are on a mobile device, you can scroll through the pictures. Choose which font you prefer for your order from the drop-down list. You can also select “Other” if you have your own font in mind and it is free for me to download. Just be sure to leave the link to where we can download it in the Notes section during checkout. Fonts.google.com and dafont.com both have good selections of free fonts.
Make sure to leave a note of exactly what you want engraved. You will find a text area to fill out on this product page. In the case of the main item pictured, this would be “Nicholas Hunter & Alyssa Diane Atwell Est September 7, 2019”. Anything you enclose in parentheses will be considered a symbol or icon; for instance, you may want “Tanya (heart) Jason”. Whatever you choose, we will engrave it to look as good as possible..
The border adds a great look to the puzzles. They are also cut from quarter-inch maple ply and coated with a dark brown finish. The border, or frame, keeps the pieces securely in place. It also has padded hangers attached on the back, on center, allowing the completed puzzle easily to be hung on the wall. If you decide to hang it on the wall, you’ll need to secure the pieces in place so they don’t fall out. This can be done in a number of ways; for a permanent bond, we suggest wood glue. Just do your best not to get any glue on the face of the pieces or on the border; it could discolor it.
All of the puzzles are cut from quality quarter-inch maple plywood. Nearly any pen works for writing on them. Check out the video “What pen should I use for writing on wooden pieces?” – HERE. We suggest a regular bic pen, as this won’t bleed. Regular sharpies tend to bleed; however, we have not experienced any bleeding with an ultra fine-tip sharpie or sharpie pen. A couple of times in the past, people have told us these pens did bleed slightly, although we have never experienced this directly. All wood is different, so test out different pens you may like before making a final selection. A blank piece of wood to test pens on is included with every order.
Share the “Love” on Facebook for a free guest book sign. We will include the instruction sign telling guests to sign a piece for no charge, if you share a photograph of your guest book on Facebook (preferably in use at your event).
