Using the My Tags order page
3 Ways to add plants to My Tags:
- From any plant page, click the “Tag +” button at the top. You’ll see the shopping cart icon update to indicated you’ve added a tag to your cart. Here’s what the “Tag +” button looks like on a plant page:
- On the “My Plants Map” page, view your plants as a list. Plants that don’t yet have an interactive sign or tag will have “+Tag” in the tag column on the far right. Click on “+Tag” to add them to your cart. You can sort this column to bring all of the plants without tags to the top.
- On the My Tags page, click the “Add” button to bring up a sortable, searchable list of all of your plants. Check the boxes of the ones you want tags for, click, “Add” and they’ll appear in My Tags.
Customizing your order on the My Tags page
The bar across the top allows you to make changes to all of the plants within your My Tags order list.
- Verify quantity ordered for each plant.
- Choose a product: Tag or Sign
- Choose a template: Tag and Sign Templates
Next customize each line for your tags or signs from the following fields:
- Botanical name
- Common name
- Native Range
- Profile Name
- Text (enter your own custom text)
- None (make a blank line)
If you would like to make changes that only apply to one tag or sign, you can do this on an individual plant’s listing within My Tags.
We recommend editing individual plant tags after you’ve already set your overall preferences with the gray bar, though, because any changes you make with the gray bar will override your work on individual tags.
Submitting your order and proofing your tags
Once you are happy with your choices and text for each line, click, “Save & Proceed.”
On the next page, you can add stakes and tree hardware to your order and save your mailing and billing information.
We will receive a summary of what you want and a file with your plant information.
We will then make a PDF proof of your signs and tags and e-mail it to you for approval. We’ll also send the estimate for your order and do our best to calculate shipping for you.
From our experience, almost all orders ship for less than $20 via USPS tracked, 2-Day Priority Mail.
Paying for your order
Once you approve your proof, we will weigh everything, prepare it for printing and send you an invoice.
You can pay your invoice online with a credit card. You can also mail a check.
Our weekly process is to engrave approved proofs on Tuesdays to prepare and ship the orders by Friday.
As always, if you have questions, just shoot us a note. We’re here to help.
