Looking to spruce up your home with a custom family name cut out? Or, needing a pop for your wedding backdrop? Add a custom piece to your wall or existing sign with our natural, laser cut wooden words. Choose from one of our beautiful font options. This listing is based on WIDTH of your phrase, not the height. Please carefully read this listing. If you have any questions, please contact us before your order. All words and some letters may be detached but we will include a basic design proof based on the design if and only requested. These letters are fragile, please handle with care. You will receive unpainted letters ready for your paint, stain, or to leave natural.
If you wish to have these painted, please see the "PAINT MY CUTOUT" listing.
*Please note this listing does not include a sign. It only includes the letters/words.*
+ Please choose the appropriate size (WIDTH) from the variations and the font choice. This will be the total width of your name "The Smiths" – the "Est. Year" will always measure accordingly to your chosen size.
+ You will not receive your order based on the overall height. We will send a mock up IF requested ONLY after purchase. We are not responsible to recreate your order if you decide you dislike the font choice when received. If you're unsure of several fonts when ordering, we're happy to help.
+ You will need to enter your name and year in the personalization box – please double check your spelling! When making your name plural please note that we do not use apostrophes. In order to be grammatically correct, your name may require an ES or S. Please see below.
+ For certain letters that require a detached element (the letter "j"), we will attach it to the letter for easy application. If you do not wish for this to happen, please let us know in the notes. Thin fonts will be bolded for easier handling.
HOW TO MAKE MY NAME PLURAL?
Leave out the apostrophe when making last names plural. For names that do not end in –s, –z, –ch, –sh, or –x, just add –s to the end of the name to make it plural. For example, to congratulate a couple on tying the knot, you'd say, "Congratulations to the Hunters on their recent marriage." Or, if you were inviting the Lee family over for dinner, then you'd say, "I'm inviting the Lees over for dinner." For names that do end in –s, –z, –ch, –sh, or –x, add –es. For example, if you were to say, "The Hayneses recently moved to Georgia," you're indicating that the collective Haynes family moved to Georgia. Names that end in –s or are pronounced with a soft "z" sound may look weird when –es is added, but the usage is correct. As another example, if you were inviting the Jones family over for dinner, then you'd say, "I'm inviting the Joneses over for dinner. For last names ending in –y, simply add –s. Do not drop the –y and add –ies as with other nouns, verbs, and adjectives. For example, "Merry Christmas from the Murphys." It's as simple as that.
