How to Create a Printable Door Sign Online for Free
The Internet is filled with useful, innovative websites that allow you to create your own art and home accessories and print them out. Sometimes, you can even find websites that allow you to create and print an item, such as a door sign, for free. Door signs are useful in a variety of situations, including personalizing bedroom doors, decorating for the holidays or even advertising a garage sale.
Decide the purpose of your printable door sign. Envision a rough idea of how you want it to look. This should include the text and colors you plan to include. For example, a holiday door sign might include the text "Happy Holidays" and have a color scheme of red, green and white.
Visit websites that allow you to create door signs or door hangers and print them out for free. Some examples of websites include PCForms.com and ThePaperMillStore.com.
Find the "Printable" section of the website you visit, and click it. This is usually located on the left-hand side of the page or in the main menu.
Find the section that allows you to create door signs. This will usually be called "door signs" or "door hangers." Click on it.
Find the template that fits closest with your project. For example, if you want the door sign to fit with the underwater theme of your child's room, choose a door sign that incorporates sea life or that fits with the color scheme, such as shades of blue. You may also have the option of choosing a blank template and adding images and colors later.
Upload any photos or graphics you'd like to include on your door sign. For example, if you're creating a door sign as a gift, including a picture of your family could be the perfect way to customize the gift for a loved one. The website may also have a database of photos or clip art that you can choose from.
Add the text that you decided to use. Be sure to choose a color and font that go with the rest of your door-sign design. At this point, you can also add a background color if the website allows you to change the template or provided a blank template.
View your work, and print it out. The website should offer detailed instructions about how to save your design and print it out for free. Read the instructions carefully before printing.
