Floating Pen Artwork ExampleWhat you want for a design is up to you.  If you’re not sure, please call us to discuss possibilities for designs. We’ve designed thousands of pens and can help you make a decision on your design.  You will need to think of a few things when designing.  You’ll need a background scene.  This can be a forest, a road, an amusement park, etc.  It’s to help set the scene of your floaty pen.   Next you’ll need a Floater.  This is the image you want to float up and down your pen design.  This can be the name of your attraction, a bat in a cave, people walking, a black bear perhaps.  It’s going to be the main focus of your pen, so you want it to be interesting and defiantly part of the scene you’re trying to set.  Next you’ll want to think of a foreground.  this will be on top of the background and your floating image.  You can add a few trees, a covered bridge, a stalagmite or a building.  The floating image will go behind the foreground, so you can have an image disappear or just go behind, say a single tree.  The foreground will give your pen that extra 3-D effect to it.  There are various ways you can create your pens.  We have artists standing by to help with your vision.  Call us today at 1-800-325-0889 with your questions.   We’ll help you get going on your pen design today!
