So I was planning on doing a thumbprint guest book (either tree or balloons) and time got away from me and I can’t find one that I can have delivered to Hawaii by Friday of next week. Since they are custom they take time. I was talking to one Etsy seller but she hasn’t answered me in 3 days and I think I need to explore other options. Does anyone know of any printable thumbprint guestbooks that I can get with very quickly? I have looked on etsy but the ones I saw were not printable and you had to wait for them to be made and mailed (which I beleive they would arrive too late)
also for the printable ones how does that work exactly. Do I have to just print it on my printer at home on the standard 81/2 by 11 paper or can I print it at like a Kinkos on good quality paper/canvas?

well honestly. i handpainted mine on canvas..now i did a spin on mine an made a charlie brown tree..but it only took me roughly 2 hours.
I know Michaels sells the “tree prints” now and all you have to do is frame it.
If you are stressed on time and dont want to Paint one.. you can simply print out one if you are ok with 8 X11. if you goggle thumbprint tree there will be TONS of images you can save/alter and print.

Check out this Etsy listing!
It’s a Printable one, so you SHOULD be able to just get it printed at Kinkos or Staples! But ask the seller if you’re not 100% sure.

@shalynnmarie: OOO I forgot, I HAVE seen them at Michaels! They’re pretty nice, too! That’s definitely a good option if you’re low on time!

We downloaded a file from here (offbeatbride), and it worked great! I modified it in Photoshop, we printed it out at Staples (larger than 8.5X11, but I forget how big it was…16×20, I think?) We found a frame at goodwill and bought some cute, leaf-shaped ink-pads at Michaels. I think the whole project cost us ~$30.
The Micheal’s ones are good, but only if you have a small number of guests. We had 98 guests, and the one I got form offbeat bride was the perfect size.

@FutureMrs.Mathy: yes michaels..but as PP said-they are smaller for not a lot of guests. we have 150+ guests so i handpainted mine onto a larger canvas..it was SUPER EASY.
You can also print out a tree, “trace”it onto canvas and then paint it in.

buy a canvas from walmart or a local craft store- they are alaways by paint stuff and make it yourself it is so easy especailly if you plan on doing a ballon one!
