DIY Beach Wedding Signs...

Saturday, January 16, 2016

I've been working on some signs for a beach wedding post in the near future and thought I would share with everyone how to make these signs.

You don't need Photoshop or another expensive program to design signs like these.  I use PicMonkey all the time for the majority of my creations. In PicMonkey you can change the colors of the fonts, also you can fade the fonts to make them look even more chalkboard like.  The possibilities are endless.

Download your prints and then send them to the photo printing store of your choice.  You can print these signs in any size you like.  You can make them poster size and decoupage them to a wooden background. To see the size of pixels you need see the chart from PicMonkey at the end of this post.

 First of all,  you must only use royalty free clipart or clipart that you have purchased or obtained from the artist, if not you are infringing on the copyright law.  Make sure you follow any instructions pertaining to the artist and their license.

Fonts are free at Dafont.com.  I have purchased certain fonts (like the one for my blog)  and the one used in the "Sandy Toes" wedding sign.   To purchase the "Beautiful Day" font click here.


Corner Clipart:
Starsunflowers Studio is where the "corner" clipart was downloaded from.  They have beautiful chalkboard graphics and freebies for your personal use.  They also offer professional services as well, go and look at their designs.

Seashell Clipart:
Designs By Miss Mandaee is a wonderful blog with beautiful graphics for your personal use. I used her "seashell" clipart for this project.  Her site has printables, freebies, or you may purchase design work for your blog, website, or business.



Please see my previous post on using Picmonkey to make a chalkboard sign.  This will give you step by step instructions with photos on how to make your own printable.  To view chalkboard tutorial click here.

Here is an example that I customized with the names of the bride and groom.




If you would rather have the printables I have already created you can download them and print them.










Have fun creating & enjoy!
