How soon should I order the stork sign?

You are welcome to place an order for a future arrival or as soon as the baby is born. The ordering process will prompt you to specify whether you already have the baby’s birth details or if you intend to provide them at a later date. When baby is born, you can simply email, text, or message us the details so we may finalize the personalized bundle. Note that we may require up to 48 hours to deliver and placing advanced orders helps us plan. You can request your preferred delivery date in the shopping cart special instructions and we will do our best to accomodate (e.g., the day before the couple is expected to arrive home from the hospital). We also recommend advance orders for events.

We are able to set up our signs only on traditional lawns that have not been heavily landscaped with rocks, pea gravel, concrete, mulch, flower beds, raised beds, garden pots. Also, we cannot install our signs in hardpacked driveways since they require to be staked in. We also don't install in front of Government-owned buildings or structures.

Also, we cannot install the baby stork signs in front of structures that belong to the city, county, or state as we cannot obstruct access to this areas. Examples are public utility boxes, water mains, etc.
