One of the new trends I’m seeing at my Mitzvahs is a departure from the standard sign-in board. A sign in board is a photo or series of photos of the honoree, usually printed on heavy foam core with a large border. The photo is then displayed at the event and all the guests sign it upon arrival. It serves a few purposes in that it honors the host, makes a nice decoration, and is a fun activity.
However, more and more, I’m finding that my clients want something unique. Something that stands out. Something that serves a purpose beyond being a photo that will either end up stuffed in a corner of the garage, or hung in a room, and then forgotten when the kid heads off into the real world.
With that in mind, I give you a few alternatives to sign-in boards.
