To make a sign order
send us an emai or letter including the following:
Because every sign is custon made and each order is different, there is no standard “Form” for ordering.
To make a sign order, send us an email or letter including the following.
1. A sketch (or description in words) showing the typical layout of your signs, indicating the relative size of each line and where italics or capital letters are desired. Every customer’s orders are individualized with the text and layout you want.
2. The number of signs in this order.
3. The size and color of the sign plates you are ordering.
4. The type of stake mounting system desired, A or B (if any), or whether holes or rounded corners are wanted.
5. An Excel file or Word document showing the text you want on each sign in the following format (each line for a separate sign):
Column 1 shows what you want on the top line of each sign
Column 2 shows what you want on the 2nd line
Column 3 shows what you want on the 3rd lower left or bottom line
Column 4 shows what you want on the lower right corner (if applicable)
When entering your data, if you want a particular line in italics, type the words in italics, or if you want a line in all Capital letters, type them in in all capital letters. When typing scientific names, the Genus should start with a capital letter, with all the letters in the species in all lower case letters. When typing Common Names, the first letter of each common name word should be capitalized.
6. Indicate how you will be paying for your order. We accept checks, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal and Venmo, and purchase orders. To pay by credit card, please call with your account number, name on card, expiration date and security code, card billing address, along with the total amount of your order. When ordering by email, please ask for a return email confirming receipt of the order. If paying by credit card, call us. Do not email credit card information.
Important: List the appropriate information in the columns for the signs you wish to order. Please include a sketch of a typical layout indicating the relative size of the different lines and whether italics are desired. Please note that very long names will have to be either condensed (crammed together), or changed to two lines to be readable. All signs may have either three or four lines. Ten words are included (additional words are $.25 each, per sign).
For orders outside the United States, you may wish to consider ordering the engraved plates only and arrange for the stakes to be manufactured and attached locally (we can provide detailed instructions). This is because of the heavy, bulky nature of the completed signs mounted on stakes. Our stakes weigh 1/2 pound each and can be shipped separately if desired. Please inquire. Please deduct $.90 per sign if ordering engraved plates only.

(a sign without a stake), send us the following:
1. Your name & address.
2. The color sign plate you would like a sample of.
3. The text you want on the sign, such as scientific name, common name, family and country of origin of the plant you would like engraved on the sign.
If you send your request by email and do not receive a response within a few days, give us a call. After you have sent the above information, we will make up your sample sign plate and send it to the address you have indicated above.
