Chalkboard signs do the talking in three new series

Looking to express yourself in a more literal way? Sometimes a mustache or silly glasses might not be enough. Thankfully, Whisker Works has some new hand-held signs with silly statements to help get your point across! Following the success of our original series of party signs, we’ve launched three new themes of 10 signs each: weddings, reunions and parties.

There are snarky one-liners, including “I’m leaving after this photo.” and sentimental notes, such as “Friends Forever.” All the signs feature the popular chalkboard-style motif, with a twist. A variety of fun chalk-like fonts and colored boards make these signs lively and photogenic. Our wedding signs are a perfect complement for reception photo booths, where you know folks are in a good mood and ready to let loose. Thank you bride and groom for the “BEST WEDDING EVER!” or call out the guy who nobody seems to recognize as a “Wedding crasher.”

Each sign measures 8 inches by 10 inches and is made of thick, durable and flexible high-quality plastic with a matte finish to reduce glare. Each sign is double-sided with a different expression on each side. Purchase them as themed sets or individually to suit your interests. Full sets come in a burlap drawstring prop bag. They’re made in America, as are all Whisker Works products, and are ready to party!

Anchors Aweigh!

When the simple wackiness of a photo booth experience isn’t quite what you’re going for, a theme may be just the thing — especially if the party/wedding/friends-for-the-weekend event already has a theme. The nautical aesthetic has a timeless appeal, and lends itself well to retro-styling for both props and backgrounds, if not entire wardrobes. Thoughts of the ocean conjure legends and lore, and the spirit of adventure that you’ll have a great time embodying in wistful and whimsical photographs.

There are opportunities to create scenes for children, where a handmade look will accentuate the charm of your little models, and a variety of ways to handle grownup-oriented photo scenes. Looking for a romantic setting? A boat built for two could be just for you. Looking for something funny? A boat built for two could be just for you… and six of your closest friends.

The key when building a photo booth backdrop that makes the effort worthwhile is to make a backdrop that sets the tone, props that provide inspiration to smile, laugh, gesticulate or otherwise pose, and decorative details that sell the moment. This isn’t a roll of wallpaper hanging behind you. It’s a stage upon which you and your friends and loved ones may create moments worth saving.

Props from Whisker Works that can really help put you in the seafaring spirit include the Beard (a staple of old-timey and modern sea captains alike), the Captain mustache (clearly), and the Engineer, as it is decidedly swarthy. If you’re going for the “I’ve been adrift for a few weeks but only grew a mustache” look, that’s the Naturalist for sure. Other choice elements include an oar, a captain’s hat, and possibly a parrot if you’re going for a Caribbean motif.

Movember of a Different Kind

By now, most of us are familiar with the basic concept of Movember. Those who can, grow mustaches or beards throughout November to raise awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health, sharing photos of their faces as their faces get fuzzier. The facial-hair impaired show support through various mustachioed props and goods, all to support a good cause.

Jordan DancerThis year, just as in 2012, Whisker Works is helping a Florida elementary school teacher raise money in the spirit of Movember while bringing smiles to students. Jordan Dancer, who teaches in Hardee County, Florida, came to us with the idea of reselling mustaches on sticks at the school last year. We were happy to help, and by the end of his sale, he raised nearly $300 for his school.

This year he took his fundraising idea a step further by requesting mustaches with a custom tie-dyed effect using his school’s colors, orange and blue. A hair-brained idea perhaps, and I wasn’t sure we could accomplish it at first, but the end result turned out to be better than imagined. Halfway through Jordan’s Movember fundraiser, he’s already sold all of the custom mustaches, shown below, as well as dozens of other mustache props.

To Jordan and all those out there sharing in the spirit of Movember, ‘stache on!

New wholesale rates at WhiskerWorks.com!

Whisker Works has increased bulk savings for those customers who need a large quantity of mustache and smile props. For bulk orders only, we are now offering machine-made props that are based on our handmade original designs. Doing so allows us to produce large quantities faster and with consistent colors. These machine-made props are very similar to our handmade ones — take a look at the image below and see for yourself. It’s hard to notice a difference.

We chose our top selling four designs to be manufactured by machine, and each one has two colors available. Our bulk props are still made in the USA, and they’re still BPA- and phthalate-free. We can produce large orders fast. But better than that, we can offer really competitive prices on these props with a minimum purchase of 20 pieces.

Sample estimates (subject to change):
• 20 kit-style props cost $60 + shipping: available here

Most kit-style orders can be ready to ship within one day. Most other orders are ready to ship within a week.
