How to Instructions
The artwork on the site is available as a free download. It’s sized to print well up to 18” x 24”. There are several ways you can get it printed.
- Easy: Download the file and send it to your printer at home. This will likely result in an 8.5” x11” sign. Find a piece of cardboard you have at the house and glue the sign down.
- Slightly harder but worth it: Download the file and send it to your printer at home using the tile settings. This will allow you to print portions of the artwork that tile together to make one large sign. You will need to google to find instructions for your specific printer. Find a piece of cardboard you have at the house and glue the sign down. A branch, garden stake or long poster tube are all good options if you want to make a post to carry the sign.
- Get professional help: Find a local printer, FedEx Kinkos is great for this, and send them the file to print at the size you’d like. We recommend 18” x 24”. They can even mount it on foam core but we recommend using cardboard you have around the house, it will be less expensive. Depending on which poster you choose, you may want to give the printer a head’s up about NSFW language. And as long as you’re having it printed get extras to give away to friends.
- Print other stuff: If you’d like to get a shirt made you can upload directly to a digital on demand printer like Custom Ink or Zazzle. They will take the artwork and make a T-shirt out of it. Magic! Depending on which poster you choose, you may want to give the printer a head’s up about NSFW language.
