WHAT IS A YARD CARD?!?!

It is a surprise you give your loved ones to get their attention.  Typically, we will come out in the wee hours and leave personalized signs, essentially turning your front yard into a giant greeting card. It’s more memorable than a typical greeting card, candy or flowers.  And people will be talking about it for years to come!

HOW DO I ORDER A YARD CARD OR GET INFORMATION?

Just send an e-mail to funbytheyard@yahoo.com with your contact information or call us at 574-383-8525 and we’ll take it from there.
As we set up under the cover of darkness, it is helpful to know as much as we can so be sure to tell us about any pets, fences, or motion lights that might give the surprise away.

WHAT ARE YOUR DELIVERY FEES AND DELIVERY AREA?

There are never any extra delivery fees for yard cards, they are priced by location.  Travel fees outside of South Bend apply to balloon décor and balloon twisting.  We travel up to 20 miles from 46619 for yard cards and 35 miles for balloon décor and twisting.
There is a $200 min. for balloon decor.  Small deliveries available nights and weekends only.

HOW DO I PAY?

We currently accept cash, pay pal  or company checks.  Sorry, but we cannot accept personal checks.  Credit/Debit information may be phoned in and are subject to a 2% processing fee.
Please note that your date for yard cards will not be held until full payment is received.  Deposit arrangements can be made for balloon décor and twisting.

WHEN WILL MY SURPRISE BE DELIVERED?

Yard cards areset up between sundown and sunrise the day before the event so that the recipient wakes to a smile on their special day.    Rentals are picked up the next day between sundown and early morning.  Birth announcements and baby showers are set up and taken down at pre-arranged times.
No one needs to be home during delivery or pick up.

CAN I REQUEST ANY MESSAGE BE PUT ON THE SIGN?

Personalization is an option on many of our displays.   We have fun ideas or you can come up with your own.  However, we will not post anything that is profane, racial, or negative in any way.  See the Theme Options page for some great ideas.

DO YOU DELIVER YEAR AROUND AND IN ANYWEATHER?

Our signs are durable and hold up to most weather.  However, they must be staked into the ground, therefore we do not do set up during cold months when the ground is frozen if we don’t have enough snow to hold up the critters.     High winds are also a concern as we do not want any damage or injury to our displays, employees, or to the recipients. Winds over 20 mph are reason for caution.  Winds sustained or gusting over 25 mph means will not set up and/or may need to take a display down early.    In the event we are unable to set up due to poor weather, you may choose an alternate available date or a full refund.
We deliver 7 days a week.  We reserve all  holidays off and occasionally announce vacation.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?

We will refund your money if:
*   Weather prevents us from setting up
*   You cancel within 48 hours for yard cards / 14 days for balloons
*   We do not set up because we feel our safety or the safety of our display will be compromised in any way. (Minus any delivery fees)

We will not be able to give a refund if:
*  The recipient or property owner wants the display removed
*   We are not allowed access to the property for any reason
*   If there is not enough grassy area or if the ground is to hard to set up the display
*   If cancellation occurs in less than a 48 hours from yard card delivery / less than 14 days for balloons.

CAN I OR THE RECIPIENT KEEP ANY PART OF THE DISPLAY?
This is a rental only.  Feel free to ask about purchasing signs.  We regret to have to implement a missing or damaged sign fee should anything “walk away” or get broken during the display period.

HOW DO I SIGN UP MY NON PROFIT FOR FUNDRAISING?

Simply call 574-383-8525 and we’ll set you up with your own code to receive a percentage for each display ordered!  No paper work, no sales, no delivering items, it’s really just that simple.  The more you promote, the more you earn.

WHAT IS THE 2K CLUB?

When our corporate clients invoice totals exceed $2,000 in a single year, they may take 20% off ALL orders for the remainder of that same year!!!!

***Please do not allow anyone to move or play on or around any part of the display.  Fun By The Yard will not be held liable for any personal injury or damage to property while the display is in the owner’s yard during the rental period.
Do not attempt to move any of the items.  We would be happy to come move them if desired.  A delivery fee will apply.***
Renting a display guarantees that you agree to these terms and conditions.

NOW LET’S SPREAD SOME FUN!
