1. What are the sizes of your stars, banners, magnets and ornaments? How do they hang?
Our metal stars come in 12" - 18" - 24" sizes. Banners are approximately 10"wide. Magnets vary in size from 3" x 3" to
4" x 4" and ornaments are 5" x 5" sizes. Decorative wire hangers attached.
2. Can they be hung outdoors?:
Our stars are not guaranteed to last outdoors in direct sunlight! Placed in shaded areas, protected areas from wind, sun and water, such as on a porch or under an over-hang, the stars will have a much better chance for longevity. Helpful hint: Spray both sides of the star and banner with a protective coating, such as Helmsman Spar Urethane
in satin finish.
3. Does the star shape itself have any particular meaning?
We include a “Legend of the Star” tag with most of our stars. The origin of the star shape in human art and symbolism
is ancient and the star shape has meant many things over the years. The founders of our Great Nation adopted the
star shape as a symbol of the very first states on our very first flag “Old Glory” To this very day, the “star” remains a
part of our American Heritage! Display a star inside or outside your home as a symbol of our “American Heritage.” It
will bring you Joy, Love, and Happiness!
4. How do I switch the banner on the stars to the greeting on the other side?
Just open the loose-leaf rings (also known as book rings), turn the banner around, and reattach the rings.
5. What are the stars made of?
Our three dimensional metal star is comprised of five individual but identical pieces which we will heretofore refer to

average metal star on the national market today. When holding one of our star products, a customer automatically
feels a sense of perceived value. The star feels strong, and not easily dented, but at the same time, not excessively
6. What are the greeting banners made of?
Our reversible greeting banners are constructed of MDF (medium density fiberboard). This material is strong yet
consistent in quality with no warping or cracks while at the same time being easily machined.
7. Will my star rust?
Our stars have a great deal of corrosion resistance. The base metal goes through a thorough cleaning process and then
the bare metal is phosphated before being base coated. This process insures that your star will resist rust for years to
come, whether it's a barn star decor or otherwise.
8. Where is the best place to position the accessory magnet?
The accessory magnets include: the motorcycle, Firefighter Emblem, Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon, POW-MIA
Emblem, and Elvis Presley Ovals. These magnets are designed to be slightly below center of the star.

Many people like to display a star on their porch or front door. Our Land of the Free – Because of the Brave”
Americana stars make a great decoration for your front porch during the summer months. The Snowman Family Star or
the Friends and Family star with Merry Christmas facing forward make a great decoration during the Holidays. Our
largest 24” stars looks great over the fireplace. Yet others like to make a grouping using our rustic stars on either
side of a shelf or between framed prints.
