Gift Tags

40th Birthday Hangover Kit Tags

A gift tag adds a personal touch and ties everything together! These gift tags were designed for a 40th birthday party in Vegas. The host made a hangover kit for everyone – “hangovers are temporary, drunken stories are forever”. Gift tags can be great for a special trip, work function, bridal shower, bachelorette party, kid party favor bag or for the holidays.

Canvas Photo Print

Do have a family picture that you love and want to display in you home? Or do you have a blank wall that you have been wanting to fill with something special?

We love creating custom canvas prints with your favorite pictures!!! We can make them as a canvas wrap or mount the canvas to a backboard with our reclaimed barn wood frame. The frames and canvas wraps can be made in any size to fit your space. We really enjoyed working with this sweet and adorable family! The mom wanted to transform her mudroom into a place that she would enjoy spending time since she is in that room often doing laundry. They ordered a framed quote as well from Simply Stated Designs to pull everything together. The mud room turned out gorgeous, they have me dreaming of adding a mudroom to our house….

Custom Logo Sign

January 14, 2019

Final Product!

Are you looking for a unique sign for your company? We can make custom logo signs!

We had so much fun working on this project and learned a lot along the way! This client wanted to make a very special custom logo sign for some friends who recently opened a coffee shop. The shop is located in a mountain town and he wanted the sign to be very rustic to match their decor. This sign is 3′ by 3′ feet made out of real reclaimed barn wood, thick steel that we rusted and sintra to raise the letters. The logo is laser etched into the rusted steel for a weathered look. The logo and letters are all raised to make it multi-dimensional. This sign is even more stunning in person!

First 4 project proof options.
Final project proof that was selected.

The first step of the project is working with the graphic design team to create a visual for the customer based on their requests. This customer wanted to use reclaimed barn wood and metal. We presented him with 4 different ideas using these materials and after seeing the proofs he decided that he wanted to have it even more rustic. He liked the idea of using rusted steel. This was not a process that we had done before but we are always willing to try new things. After doing a lot of research and trying a few different methods… we finally found something that worked well and achieved the rust color he was looking for. We made sure to rust the bolts as well so it all matched. The next challenge was figuring out how to etch the logo into the rusted metal and still have it look worn/rustic instead of the natural shiny grey color that typically happens when etching steel. We did more research and ordered in a special tool to make that happen.

Finishing touches – setting up to install the bolts.

Bedroom Art

January 10, 2019

Lovely picture from client!

Simply Stated Designs worked with this client to create art from a classic song that was played at their wedding. The final proof was printed on a 16″x70″ inch canvas and was mounted to a sturdy backer board. These clients are extremely handy and elected to make their own frame to match the beautiful headboard that they also built.

House Sign

Simply Stated Designs part of the project!
Final sign completed by client.

This client wanted to make several outdoor house signs for his family as holiday gifts. He ordered the steel from Simply Stated Designs and had us cut the name out in a stencil font. He then rusted the steel himself and mounted each one of them to a unique piece of wood. We love working with clients to help make their vision a reality. We are always happy to partner with handy clients that would like to do any portion of the project they are able to do on their own.
