Some Bling for the New Abode - REVIEW

A few weeks ago I had the awesome opportunity to review a canvas from Easy Canvas Prints.  It was such a great experience (and of course I L-O-V-E my canvas!!!), so I was very excited to receive an offer to review something from their sister company, BuildASign.

I was pretty wowed when I received a $50 gift card for anything on the BuildASign site!  I thought that was a very generous offer...but it was still so hard to decide what to get from their hugely varied product offering.

Ultimately I decided to be responsible with part of the credit.  I ordered new business cards for our Mothers of Multiples group.  They are such a fantastic update to the cards we've had for the past couple of years!



The website was very easy to use, and I had so many options in the way of font, color, and graphics.  I really love this art...it reminds me of the "community" of motherhood.

[I must 'fess up here and say I made an oopsie when I first designed the cards.  I thought I had saved what I had done...but when I went to pull it back up a couple of days later, it didn't appear in my account.  I called the Customer Service team at BuildASign, and they were extremely helpful in retrieving my design.  WHEW!  Nap time crisis was averted, thank goodness!!!)

With the remainder of my credit, I decided to treat myself to a couple of things for our new house.  It's probably no surprise we plan to have an Alabama room wall.  When I saw all the fun street signs, I just couldn't resist. 



I'm thinking this will be perfect at the bottom of the basement steps, just before you enter the shrine media room.

And of course I couldn't leave out my sweet girlies.  They've been waiting very patiently for new bicycles, which we've promised them when we move into the new house.  I can't wait to see their faces when they see their very own parking sign in the garage!



(I obviously blurred their names, to protect their alter internet egos, Baby A and Baby B.)

These signs are incredibly high quality.  While we will be enjoying ours inside, they are easily suitable for outdoor use

Once again, there were so many options I had to choose from, and the BuildASign site was very easy to use.  I didn't get too creative with font or color, as I wanted these to look like "actual" signs, but there were plenty of opportunities to do something even more fun and funky.

I am very thankful to BuildASign for the opportunity to review their products.  It was such a fun exercise!  The business cards are already being put to good use, and I cannot wait to display these signs in our new house!

[In exchange for writing this review, I received a $50 credit on the BuildASign site.  The products I purchased amounted to slightly more than that, so I contributed about $10.  The views I've expressed here are my own.  I love this stuff!!!)

For a minute there I was freaked out like "what's wrong with the sigh?!" before I figured out you blurred their names :)
