    The seller makes surf boards that are 47" high x 15 1/4" wide. Then you could use different color paint pens for your guest to sign.

    It looks great! It doesn't look much fun to tote to Mexico though...

I love the idea of keeping it on my coffee table and reading through it on occasion :).

      I made a book with pics from our resort too from Shutterfly.com. I love the idea of fun pens. I did a black back ground so I need to use metallic pens. At least that is what I was thinking. I wonder if colored sharpies will work?

        The surfboard idea is super cool, but I would hate to travel with it.

          I just ordered a photobook from mypublisher.com. I have 38 guests coming so what I did was create a page for every person/couple coming with pictures of them/us on it. I'll then have them sign their own picture page...The book ended up costing around $34 +shipping.
          Here's a link to the book if anyone wants to check it out!
          Let's see if this link works:

            I'm using a map of the Dominican Republic as my guest book. Someone else posted the idea on another thread & I liked it so much I decided to use it too. I found an old looking map on Ebay for $19.99. Once we get back, I'll have it matted & framed so that we can hang it.

              My FI and I are doing a Wedding Tree as our Guestbook. I wanted something that we could hang out in the house when we get home from the wedding instead of something that will just sit on a shelf and get dusty. We are having people put their thumb print as the leaf and then just signing their names.

                I want to make Signature guest platter on my own at a pottery place. I just don't know what kind of design I should make since I am not artisitic and have a sloppy handwritting. i need to practice.

                  Jazzy, I'm just as challenged when it comes to writing. Our paint-your-own pottery place here has stencils that you can use & the store associates will actually help you if you're especially challenged. Check to see if someone at your store can help. They may be able to do the pencil design & you can trace over it with paint. Still DIY but with some assistance!

                      We're going to use this guestbook.  My cousin has a portable printer made for pictures so she'll bring that and we'll ask someone to take pictures of everyone so guests can leave a note under their picture.

                       

                      Though now I'm sort of wishing I'd seen that photobook idea before...definitely cheaper and easier!
