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.

Excellent customer service is one of the positives features of using a small business and Stephanie who used Edgehouse Design for her son’s Romeo’s Christening had this feedback to share:
“Agnes took what information she was given and she turned it into a simply stunning invitation and accessories to match, all in such a short time frame without the need to even meet to explain what we wanted. Her work and our experiences that followed are nothing short of perfect. Agnes co-ordinated everything perfectly and helped me with every aspect of the planning.
On the day of the christening Agnes styled the cake/sweet table and our guests tables. When we arrived we were in absolute awe at the beautiful job she had done. All our guests commented on how much they loved the detail, the decorating, the bonbonniere, the candle, chocolate place cards and all overall theme.
Overall working with Agnes was simply wonderful and it’s lovely to meet a professional who is clearly so talented, focused on the clients expectations and so thorough and willing to deliver to the highest standard”

So how did 2 Love Birds originate? Ania explains – “A couple of years ago I had a task of designing wedding stationery for my own wedding. The enjoyment of designing and co-ordinating the visual aspects of the big day started an idea … a year after 2 Love Birds were born. 2 Love Birds designs are fresh, fun and on trend. I hope that through my designs I can make parties that extra bit special and memorable”.
Here are a few more of the designs you can find over at the 2 Love Birds website. I love all the colour combinations Ania chooses to use for the designs:
This was a custom design created for a winner of a Life’s Little Celebrations competition. Too cute don’t you think?:
