You can always refer back to your orders tab to see which date you reserved!


How does the actual painting get done?

However you want. Most families prefer to spray paint the rock with their child or surprise them with an original design that's meaningful to them. There are local businesses or talented neighbors who will paint the rock for you, as well. Arranging those services privately is up to you after you have selected a date.
