Here are some of our Frequently Asked Questions we get from customers when booking a Lawn Greeting Sign Rental!
When will my Calgary Event Card be set up?
All lawn greeting cards will be set up the night before the event after dark around 9pm or later. Displays will be taken down the day of your event in the evening after dark (after 8pm). If you need it up longer, please let us know. We may be able to accommodate different set up / take down times so please just ask and we will try our best.
What is a BIG HEAD Add on?
A Big Head is a giant head photo cut out of your special someone. Adding one of these to your yard greeting is an awesome way to add an extra WOW factor. Cost is $45.00. They get to keep this after we take down the lawn greeting. We require a photo of the person and about 5 days to get these printed. Rush orders may be accomodated.
Do you have flamingos or old buzzards?
Our event cards are not the same as the lawn greetings you may have seen before. We use large 2 foot letters to spell out the words HAPPY BIRTHDAY with the NAME and AGE of your special someone in the front yard and decorate it with a few elements instead of using the classic flamingos, critters or buzzards. Our greetings still take up a large space and will not disappoint however we do not decorate the whole yard with critters, flamingos etc. We do however have a couple flamingos and buzzards in our inventory!
How do I pay?
Payment is required upon booking your Calgary Event Card to reserve your date. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept e-transfer after the card has been set up however we can take down a credit card number and charge it after. We accept e-transfer or credit card.
Can I cancel?
If you have to cancel your booking you can choose to receive 1/2 of your booking rate as a refund, or you may leave the full amount on credit for a future booking date, based on our availability.
How much is delivery?
We offer delivery and set up of our cards for an additional cost. Delivery starts at $20.00 depending on where in Calgary you are located. Delivery will not be more than $50.00 within the city limits. We are usually able to accomodate Airdrie, Cochrane and other surrounding area set ups.
Where can your letters be installed? Do I need a large front yard?
Our lawn letters can only be installed on real grass. Depending on the size of your front yard, we may have to adjust how the card is set up or what it says. Usually we do what we have to do to make it work. For example, if we do not have enough grass space we may decide to install "Happy B-Day 50th Janice" or set up the card on a diagonal.
Why should I choose Calgary Event Cards?
We are a new small business in town and are eager and excited to help you celebrate your special someone. Our lawn displays are more modern and unique. The Big Head offers a much more personalized touch! All of the neighbours will notice our displays.

We'd love to help you bring your parade to the next level by setting up an event card in the yard. Please let us know the time so we can ensure the card is left up long enough and set up on time!
Can you install in extreme weather conditions?
Our signs do not get damaged by rain or snow. If extreme blizzard with bad road conditions, we may not be able to drive to deliver the card in which case we will issue a full refund. If the ground is completely frozen solid, we may not be able to insert our signs, in which case a full refund will be issued.
