Happy First Day of Autumn! Many of you know that I used to sell hand-painted signs in my Hymns & Verses Etsy Shop. I really loved creating the design and making the sign for my home, but I really didn’t like the process of mass producing wood signs and shipping them. So, I’ve been working on making these sign designs into downloadable prints. I just added one of my favorite fall signs to my Etsy shop as a digital file! It’s the Autumn chalkboard sign that first appeared in my fall living room over my mantel that reads:
Autumn: a time to gather together
I loved this sign with the green chalkboard base color! A 24″ x 36″ wooden sign this large on Etsy would probably be priced at around $150 or more! But, you can have it printed as a foam board print at Walgreens (with a 50% off coupon) for $17.99! Then, you just need to purchase some 1″ x 1″ wood trim pieces to make a simple wood frame around the foam board print! It’s so easy!!!! And, a way to have a large statement piece for less!!! You can also use Office Maxx for printing as a poster and then add foam board, but their price is higher. Another option for printing this way is a poster board at Costco (if you have a membership)! In the past, I’ve purchased a poster print and used spray adhesive to attach the print to a piece of foam core board. But, it’s not as easy as it sounds and now that these photo processing centers are providing this service, I’d rather pay to have it done properly! And, the Walgreen’s price is amazing if you have a coupon!
I also used this same design with a black background on my fall screened porch one year!
As shown above, the sign had a solid black background. But, the digital file in my Etsy shop has a black chalkboard look.
Here’s another look at my original wood sign on my screen porch!
You can download this 24″ x 36″ autumn chalkboard sign in both colors as jpeg or pdf formats in my Etsy Shop! And, I hope to add more of my original sign designs as downloadable printable signs in the future! Thanks for stopping by today!
