Where'd you find your non-traditional guestbook?

I've seen lots of cute, different ideas for guestbooks on here! At first I wasn't going to bother with one because we're having a photobooth scrapbook but I really like some of the non book guestbooks, if that makes sense.

I'm sure Etsy is a popular place to look! Right now I'm leaning towards the name/letter art idea and guests sign the matting - anyone else do this?? Do you just make sure you get a light colored matte or should it be a special material?

Let's see your guestbook ideas!

This is my inspiration right now :

    I totally forgot about getting a guestbook. My sister took our invite, framed it with a wide mat, and that's what everyone signed. Came out great!

    My mom made ours! I couldn't settle on anything specific because I don't want to hang anything with signatures on it in the house, but I stumbled on one on etsy. They're tiny cards with hearts on the front, just big enough to write something small or sign your name in. We're having a big basket full of hearts on the table and people can sign one and drop it...somewhere. I haven't bought the somewhere yet Smiley smile

    Peach wik! I love it because it hangs in our dining room as a great memory of everyone who was there and our nearest and dearest.

    The ladies who did my uplights offered a Polaroid guestbook. It is now sitting by our fireplace with pictures of all of our guests!

    I just ordered mine from peachwik today. I was holding out hope for a 20% off coupon, but no luck. I still had a 10% off for signing up so that's something.

    I got the second one you posted off of etsy. The shop let me completely customize everything from colors to fonts- it turned out perfect!

    I do think the peachwik ones are real cute too and they seem like they have a lot of options! I really have always liked the name art though too and figured it'd be a good combo!

    @Kristen H that looks awesome!

    I got the one you're looking at from Etsy. You don't need a mat, she leaves enough space and even sent a scrap of photo paper so we can test the pens, and instructions for displaying it. We had to get a custom size because of the number of guests, and I'm really happy with how it came out.

    I got mine from Etsy! I'm also going to have a photo guestbook from Shutterfly where guests can write a message if they'd like since they can really only fit their names on the hearts. Smiley smile

    We are thinking something along this line of the photo but looking for one that holds three photos. Any ideas ?
