Alternative to the Ordinary “Sign-In” Guest Book

Hello all,

Are you looking for a unique way to have your guests “Sign-In” when they attend your wedding?  If so, this post is for you.  Cottage Creek Arts is a wonderful vendor on Etsy who creates hand painted and custom made original wedding canvas and signs.  We love these wedding canvas designs.  You can customize your canvass with color selections and of course your name and wedding date.

This item is the called the thumbprint guest canvas.

You would receive a canvas like the one shown below to be displayed at your wedding.  As your guests enter the ceremony, instead of signing a guest book, they would “sign” this canvas.  Signing, in this instance, consists of a thumbprint.  You can purchase ink at your local craft store and lay it next to your canvas for your guests to use.  Don’t forget to purchase moist wipes or towelettes for the guests to wipe their finger clean after they are finished.  If you like, they can also sign their names after they finish applying their print to the canvas.

This would be your finished product after all of your guests have “signed” the canvas.

If you don’t like the idea of your guests dealing with ink and applying their thumbprint, you can purchase a Leaf Canvas instead.  This vendor will paint the wedding tree with leaves.  All your guests would do is to sign one of the leaves as they enter your ceremony.

You can request different backgrounds to compliment the theme of your wedding.  Shown below is a wedding tree on the beach for a beach themed wedding and a wedding tree in a pumpkin patch for a fall themed wedding.

All of these options create a unique and beautiful piece of artwork that can be hung in your home as a reminder of your wedding day.

Happy Planning….

    I love your fingerprint guest books. I am intrested in the one that looks over the water. How much do you charge? I was also wondering if you have any other beach themed ones? Or even a palm tree one?

    Thank you!!
