How far in advance should I order my stork?
Stork Signs: We do not reserve newborn signs in advance because babies arrive on their own schedule. Please contact us as soon as the baby is born, and we will go from there. We strive to install the stork within 24-hours of your order, but it is not guaranteed. Our cut-off for next day delivery is 3:00 p.m. the day before.
***Our firm cut-off for next day delivery of any sign is 3:00 p.m. the day before. If you’d like to have the stork sign in the yard before the new parents / baby arrive home, we must have all the necessary info and payment no later than 3:00 p.m. the afternoon before they are to be discharged. An earlier notice is always appreciated and gives you a better chance for delivery at the time you would like.***
What do you offer for the Grandparents?
If a grandparent sign is ordered at the same time as the sign for the new parents, the discounted rental price for a grandparent sign is $75.00 week. The bundle will state "It's A Grandson!" or "It's A Granddaughter!". This bundle is NOT a keepsake. It will be picked up when we pick up the stork rental. Please note: The delivery address for the grandparent's sign must be in an area we serve.

Where will you place the rental stork yard sign?
We use our best judgment regarding sign placement to ensure optimal visibility and a pleasing backdrop for photographs. If there is a specific spot you would like for the sign to be placed, please notify us when you place your order and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
May I mow or use a weed eater around the stork? May I attach things to the stork? May I move the stork?
Please keep all lawn equipment away from the signs. Weed eaters and mowers damage the signs if contact is made with the sign.
Please do not attach anything to the sign, including balloons. When a balloon pops-the sun bakes the latex into the sign causing permanent damage. Please do not move and/or remove the yard sign as damage can occur. If you want the sign picked up early, please contact us and we will do so.
What happens if the stork sign gets damaged?
If you notice any damage on the sign please notify Sweet Storks and More immediately!! Our signs are durable, weather-resistant, and designed to last. However, the signs are not designed for climbing. We are not responsible or liable for any and all injuries involving the sign while on your property. Homeowner is responsible for keeping all lawn equipment away from the signs. The Howeowner will be responsible for replacing the damaged stork or any damaged parts at the purchase price to Sweet Storks and More.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
