This listing is for the following things:
1. Viewing all of the mechanic & tool-themed photo letters that I have in my library.
2. Purchasing a Digital Proof Sample to begin choosing letters for a sign you may decide to purchase, or to decide on the letters you'd like after you've purchased a sign - if you've paid for full custom / buyer design / or to get a proof-sample).
Click through all of the photos shown here in this listing to see all of the letters I currently have available that I've photographed in the mechanic & tool theme.
Email me at info@lettersoflovedesigns if you've got specific questions, need more information, or need me to direct you to where you can go to purchase a sign.
You could have ended up here in this listing, coming from many different places.
- hoping to see letter samples in this theme before deciding to purchase a sign
- you've already purchased the sign, but not upgraded to have a proof sample
- many other reasons
- you may have clicked over here from my Etsy shop to see letter samples
- maybe you arrived from a Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest post.
If you'd like a proof sample of your first or last name, word or phrase, you may purchase a Proof. Or email me for info. Just let me know what you're looking for, and I can help!
What that means / what you get if purchase a proof:
It means you want to see some letter options in the selected theme, color scheme etc.
Once I see your order come through for a proof, I'll put some letter options together for you to view.
You'll receive two different samples, and this will allow us to begin mixing and matching the letters that are your favorites.
The price you pay for a proof includes:
The initial two full name or word samples (13 letters or less per proof for best fit on the signs that I offer).
Within about 72 hours from when you purchase your proof order, I'll email your proof.
With your proof, you get three complete swaps for free, if needed.
That means that three different times after I send the initial proof, we can swap out as many letters as needed to see a new version. So, at each message exchange, please tell me ALL of the letters that need swapped out (I'll send instructions on how to do this in my message). I'll do all of the swaps for each change, and send you back another sample. That counts as one complete swap. We can do this three times.
If you need more than three swaps, then additional swap fees of $3.75 can be purchased for each complete swap needed more than three.
As a note : It usually takes people 0-2 swaps to find a set of letters they love. I would estimate that of the over 3,000 letter sets that I've sent to customers over the past 12 years, that maybe only 10 haven't found a set they loved within those 3 swaps, so not to worry.
I'll send options to the email attached to your order, so check that inbox within about 72 hours.
*Your proof will come in a screenshot digital photo. This will not be an edit-able file, not a digital file, and will not give you access to my original letter library, the letter files, or license to use them in any way. The proof is intended for you to view the letters put together side-by-side so that you can see how they would look on a finished, handmade-by-me wood sign. I photograph all of my letters, and do not sell digital files of the letters. I sell finished, handmade wood signs that come ready for you to display, give as gifts, etc.
Who Selects the Letters for your Proof?
If you do decide to purchase a proof, there are two options.
I can select the first two sets of letters for you in your chosen theme or color scheme, and we can continue on as noted above... you'll just leave a note on your order with the first or last name or word (13 letters or less).
Or if you already know the letters you'd like to see together, please select that option when you check out. Click through the letter photos and note the name or word (example : SMITH) and then note the letters to use : Example : S4, M12, I6, T4, H12.
Then I'll put those letters together in a proof sample to see if you like the way they flow together. If not, then we can move forward with swapping out letters as noted above.
What purchasing your a proof does NOT get you:
If you purchase a proof here from this listing, that does NOT necessarily mean you're getting a sign along with it. You'll also need to (or maybe you already have, depending on the circumstances) purchase a sign at the standard custom / seller design price-point, and then purchasing a proof will upgrade that sign to a full custom / buyer input / proof design. I can explain more of that on a case-by-case basis, since each instance will vary, depending on how you arrived here a this proof listing.
The difference in cost between proof/no proof (full custom / standard custom) accounts for the additional time (hours to days) it will take us to go back and forth in messaging to find your letters (depending on how quickly the buyer responds to messaging).
As noted above, and important to repeat, purchasing a proof does NOT give you access to a digital file, This will not be an edit-able file, not a digital file, and will not give you access to my original letter library, the letter files, or license to use them in any way. The proof is intended for you to view the letters put together side-by-side so that you can see how they would look on a finished, handmade-by-me wood sign. I photograph all of my letters, and do not sell digital files of the letters. I sell finished, handmade wood signs that come ready for you to display, give as gifts, etc.
Thank you for your interest in handmade. :)
