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 sometime between 9-Midnight. Displays will be taken down the day of your event in the evening sometime after 8pm. If you need it up longer or would like it left up until a certain time please let us know! Additional days are also available at $25/day.
We may be able to accommodate different set up or take down times depending on day of the week so please just ask. We sometimes accommodate specific time requests for an additional fee.
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 $50.00 + GST. They get to keep this after we take down the lawn greeting. We require a photo of the person and 1-2 days to get these printed. Some people love adding a vintage or old picture of the birthday person!
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". 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. We accept e-transfer, credit card (3.4% surcharge) or cash.
Can I cancel?
Yes - plans change! Just send us an email at least a day before.
Do you accommodate Airdrie, Cochrane, Carstairs or Okotoks?
Yes! We can accommodate out of town setups however additional charges may apply. If travel conditions are bad and prevent us from setting up the card, you will be refunded 100% of your booking.
Where can your letters be installed? Do I need a large front yard?
Our stakes can only be installed on real grass or in soil. 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 lawn space we may decide to install "Happy B-Day 50th Janice" or set up the card on a diagonal or facing a driveway instead of the street. We cannot instal into artificial turf, mulch or rocks. We do have wooden stands to accommodate homes with these types of front spaces.
Why should I choose Calgary Event Cards?
We are a new small business in Calgary and are eager and excited to help you celebrate your special someone. Our lawn displays are more modern, large and bold. The Big Head offers a much more personalized touch and makes for an awesome keepsake!

Can you Install inside or on cement?
Yes! With our new wooden stands we are able to set up a birthday greeting inside or on cement! If you have someone special to celebrate inside a retirement home or in a parking lot party we can help! Wooden stands are an additioanl $25.00. Reach out for more details!
Can you install in extreme weather conditions?
Our signs do not get damaged by rain or snow. If there are 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 use a drill to insert the stakes. Please let us know if you have underground sprinklers ahead of time however we usually do not drill close to the perimeter of the lawns where sprinklers tend to be.
