God Bless Our Home Word Art Scroll Saw Pattern. 2017 Personalized Christmas Ornaments.

The larger you make this pattern the better it will look. The pattern fits on an 8.5" X 11" sheet of paper. You can use the poster print option to make it larger. 

Lets talk about printing my patterns for a moment. My patterns are distributed as PDF. PDF stand for Portable Document Format. The PDF standard was created by Adobe in the early 90's. Since then it has become the primary format for distributing documents online. 

Adobe makes a free reader that allows everyone to open these documents. It has reasonably powerful print formatting including poster print. It is called Adobe Reader DC. Most PC's have it installed but you can get it at this link if you need it. There is a free and a Pro paid version. You only need the free version.

A few years ago the browsers implemented their own PDF readers as part of the browser. These do not have the same printing features as the Adobe Reader DC. If you use the browsers built in PDF readers you may not be able to print all the patterns 100% to size or as a poster print. 

It's a little out of the scope of this post to show you how to make sure that Adobe Reader DC is your default reader. All the browsers have a way to set Adobe as the default. If you think this would be a good topic to cover I can work something up. Let me know.  

Ball Chain for key fobs and dog tags:

I get asked about where to buy ball chain for key fobs and dog tags all the time. You can find them in most craft stores. In Michael's Craft Store they are with the leather making supplies. They are hard to find if you don't know that is where they put them. You can also buy them pretty cheap from Amazon.
Here is my Amazon affiliate link. They are currently $6.29 per 100 and free two day shipping if you are an Amazon prime member. 


Information: 2017 Personalized Christmas Ornament Patterns.

Order taking begins later this week.

Please read the detail at the bottom if you plan on placing orders for the ornaments.

Okay here is the set of patterns for this years personalized Christmas ornaments. For those of you who will be taking orders from your customers you can use these pictures to take your orders. 

I think this years selection is the strongest yet. I hope you agree. 

The only thing I have left to complete is the order page. I will work on that today and tomorrow. 

The first three ornament patterns are $1 each and can be mixed and matched. There is a minimum order of five. 

This ornament shows the angel as a segmentation cut. There is an optional and easier angel included also.  The segmentation is pretty basic the optional angel will save quite a bit of time and it looks good also.
 The back of this ornament has a tab that fits into a slot on the base for strength. The other pieces are just glued to the base.
 This is the most basic ornament pattern this year. I just wanted to add some variety.

These are this years pet ornaments. These will be $2 each but there is no minimum order.

Finally we have the family name door ornament. There are two sizes of this pattern included. The large one is 14 inches tall and the small one is 10 inches tall. The large one looks better if you hand it on your from door. Keep in mind that you can use your print driver and scale the pattern to the size you need.

If you plan to use these outdoors make sure you paint or finish them accordingly. 

This pattern will cost $5 per family name with no minimum order. 

Important information:

You will not be charged until after you receive your patterns. You only pay if you are 100% pleased with the patterns. The patterns will be delivered to your email address.

I will complete the order as quickly as possible. Last year I got it down to a 2 day turn around. I hope to achieve that this year also. If that time slips I will let you know in a blog post.

Please check the order form carefully for incorrect spellings. I will copy and paste the names from the order form so however you type them is how they will turn out. I will do corrections if needed but you can help me out by making sure they are correct on the original form.

When I email you the patterns there will be a link to make payment with a credit card. The link goes to a secure Paypal processor. You do not need a Paypal account to make payment. Silmple select pay with credit card and it will bypass the Paypal stuff.

I will also include a mailing address so you can send payment in cash or check if desired.

Special characters in the names can be a problem but I will do my best to make them work. 

Every year I get email about using "THE GOOD'S" VS "THE GOODS" on the door ornament. I will be using "THE GOODS" version. This is common on this type of sign and makes the pattern automation software I write much easier.
