• Tips for your Letter Board!


    First and foremost, we wanna say THANK YOU SO SO MUCH for your support and ordering with us! We dance a lil silly dance everytime we received an order from you. 

    Now that everyone have their letter boards, this is the best time we share our best tips with you! 

    Tip 1: Use a small scissor to cut the letters!

    We had customers telling us that they spent the whole night twisting every letter apart and ended up with really sore fingers and at least 50% of letters with tiny plastic feet on them. We know how frustrating that can be especially when we are super OCD too. 

    L to R: Side cutter commonly use for plastic model kit, small nail scissors, nail clipper

    We have listed 3 tools we have at home that are super useful in cutting the teeny plastic bits off the letters! They are also arranged according to how commonly found at home; nail clipper being the most common and side cutter the most uncommon. 

    Tip 2: Beat the dust and fuzz!

    As time passes, your letter board may come along with some dust, hairs (or fur in our case because our cat is a walking shedder), and other random things. Don't fret, all you need to do is run your lint roller over the letter board & they will magically disappear! 

    Also sometime later, you may notice that your letter board have some visible furring/fuzz. It could happen when anyone rubs the felt too hard which causes the furring. Just get a shaver (please don't reuse it on your chin after that HAHA) and start shaving your board. Your letter board will look brand new again after a good shave. 

    Tip 3: Get perfect spacing with a string!

    Have you ever work on a quote for a long time and its still not centralised or spaced wrong? Do you also feel like pulling your hair because no matter what you do, you just can't get perfect spacing?

    Let us suggest a quick fix for you!

    1. Grab a ruler and pencil & flip over your letter board.

    2. Mark the centre of your board both horizontally and vertically.

    Using the string that we provided in each letter board (we hope you didn't throw it away!), tie a knot and line it up to your marks for perfect spacing!

    Tip 4: Always plan your spacing!

    Before setting your letters on the board, it is always better to line them up floating on the board until you are satisfied with your spacings! Trust us, it will save you a lot of time having to take them off and re-shift them. Saves you alot of (hair-pulling) frustration too! 

    That's all we have to share so far! If you share any photos of your letter boards, please use the hashtag #lettersoiree!

    Till the next time!
