When planning any event or party – attention to detail will be what sets it apart and makes it memorable for guests. There are many inclusions to think about but the addition of signage and print material can be the element that creates the WOW factor.
Many people worry that it may be costly or not readily available to use printed items but today I am introducing you to LLC partner Jo’s Sign by Design who dispel this myth by helping you create both large and small printables that will complete your event styling with maximum impact.
So you may ask, what do you mean by printables and what are my options?
Here are a few ideas that may help you.
- Backdrops – Printable backdrops can be used for candy buffets, dessert tables or even just to cover a bland wall. Themed parties can be beautifully enhanced with a large format backdrop. You can attach these to a board or display or blu-tack to a wall.
Here are a few examples of backdrops printed by Jo’s Signs by Design:

I personally used Jo’s Signs by Designs recently when I needed a large sign to cover the bottom of this Ice-cream parlour stand for a Doc Mcstuffins party for my daughter. Jo printed the sign to the custom size requirements and the quality was fantastic!
- Milestone Boards – These vintage boards have come of age and the brilliant design elements of names, place, memories and milestones artistically displayed for a special event of any kind will bring a smile to all who stop and read. The added benefit is the event recipient has a truly personal keepsake to cherish forever.
- Social Media Frames – For a special birthday – having a fun photo frame to use for photos creates a memorable prop for photos!
For business events – having your event trend on Social Media is the ultimate recognition of a great event. Help it along by having a custom made Instagram or Facebook frame. You can add your event title, hashtags, keywords and more.
Guests can grab the frame and get into the picture instantly. Perfect icebreaker and great promotion tool

- Personalised labels – Imagine your lolly buffet having the party recipients name and event printed on chocolate bars, water bottles, favours and more.
Jo’s Sign by Design can accommodate this by expertly printing and cutting your small printables, making the preparation simple and fast. These create a wonderful memento for guests to keep or enjoy.
- Free Standing Display Systems – For the business owners out there who are doing an expo or product display – Jo’s Signs by Design also creates large backdrops for your exhibition. These are light weight and very portable, making a brilliant solution to getting your business name out there and seen! The Banners are printed on satin finish tear resistant material making them sturdy and robust.
So whether you’re a mum who loves to party plan…or an event stylist, prop hire company or decorator – this kind of service is invaluable. Jo’s Sign by Design offers full design and print service with the results displaying rich vibrant true match colours.
If you prefer to design yourself you can do that too, just send the completed or purchased print file and product size specifications to Jo and you will be thrilled with the results.
If you’re a stylist – your clients will be so impressed and that means repeat business and referrals for you.
If you’re a mum then this fantastic printing service will give you one less thing to worry about and create a big impact at your child’s celebration!

Come away to Paris with a selection of gorgeous Paris party supplies!
A parisian party can be styled in so many ways…..think poodles and eiffle towers and chandelliers….you could theme it as a pamper or fashion party…. a ballet party or a sweet parisian high tea!

Gold and glitter are huge at the moment in kids and adult parties and if you love yourself a bit of glitter and shine then you will love what Sugarlicious can create!
Sugarlicious custom designs cake toppers, party decorations / accessories and foil prints so customers can create amazing parties.
Script cake toppers are very popular at the moment to place on top of both home made cakes or professional cakes. As you can see they really add that extra sparkle!:
A first birthday is always a special celebration and if you’re planning a first birthday party then Sugarlicious has some gorgeous “One” cake toppers available (cake in pic by Art of Baking) and I also love these iron on decals which can be used to customise any birthday outfit!
Sam, the owner of Sugarlicious, is a mum who has always had a passion for parties. Even before her 1st baby boy was born, she used to daydream about his birthday parties. She loves lollies, chocolate, cake, parties, the odd glass of champagne & glitter!
She has always been the friend / family member that gets excited about planning amazing parties, whether a birthday, baby shower, christening, wedding or kids backyard birthday.
She would love to help add some sparkle to your next event and as you can see Sam creates gorgeous party decor which are on trend!
Despite heading into winter there is still plenty of pineapple and flamingo items around – this is one trend that is not going away! So whether you’re planning ahead for a summer tropical party or adding some pineapple or flamingo party items to a winter party – you will love these toppers and garlands!
Most cake toppers / accessories are hand made from glitter / plain cardstock and since a commercial electronic cutting machine is utilised it allows Sugarlicious to custom cut ANY number, letter, word or image up to 30cm.
With the release of the new Alice in wonderland movie this is another popular party theme and I love these toppers that Sugarlicious has created for a fun Alice in Wonderland party theme!:

Planning a mexican fiesta? Another fun and popular party theme at the moment and you may have noticed all the cactus items appearing in stores and decor sites! I’m loving this cactus glitter garland by Sugarlicious:
Gold foil prints are appearing everywhere lately in kids room decor and Sugarlicious also covers this range of items! These lovely prints could also work into some party decor and then be placed in your child’s room after the party:
On a personal note I have used Sugarlicious a few times for various party items and have met Sam in person – she is down to earth, humble and dedicated to providing wonderful service to her customers! It is wonderful to know you can support a small business while also making your child’s party extra special!
