4/13/10After yesterdays post, I was happy to hear from other "wordies" so I thought I'd share my recent project. I've drooled for some time over vintage subway roll signs but couldn't bring myself to spend as much as $1,000 dollars (yes - you heard me right). True to my frugal self, I decided it was the look I was after and not so much the fact that it was a great piece of history. Why not make one?
I was originally going to replicate famous Paris streets but decided to honour my husband who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.
The completed sign was made for a song which made me giddy.
Cost for design.......time at the computer designing
Cost for printing......fairly reasonable
Cost for ready-to-hang faming......well worth it
Cost to bring a little piece of childhood memories to my husband.......priceless!
Sign measures 4 1/2 feet by 1 1/2 feet.
