How to Create Your Own Signs

I get many comments from people that want Obama signs, but have not been able to get one – either the order is taking a while to get processed and shipped, or they are unable to get to a campaign headquarters to get a sign, or their local headquarters are all out.  This post walks you through the steps to create your own Obama signs.

First, you will need a version of the sign that you can download and print out.  I’ve got several versions available for free download – some of the more popular ones are below…

The letter size signs can be printed out on just about any personal printer.  Some consumer printers are capable of printing the larger tabloid size, though probably not most.  If your printer cannot print the larger size don’t worry – almost all print/copy shops can print tabloid size.

I used FedEx Office (formerly Kinkos) to print out my signs, as they had a simple to use online printing site that let me upload the PDFs (I went with the larger tabloid size) directly to the website and pick them up at my local FedEx Office.  Their online tool allowed me to pick out the type of paper – for signs I’d recommend a thicker cardstock paper (I opted for a glossy cardstock).  The cost of the tabloid size printout was about $3.

Here’s the sign as it was printed…

If you want to put the sign outside, I’d strongly recommend laminating it.  To make sure it is weather proof you will want to make sure that the laminate overlaps the edges of the sign making a water tight seal.  To do this, I trimmed off the white edges from the printout and did the lamination myself (again I did mine at FedEx Office for about $4, though most copy shops can do lamination).

Below is my laminated version of the sign…

I opted to put my sign out in my front yard.  Since I didn’t have anything to hang it from, I decided to stake it into the ground.  I happened to have an old sign that I was able to use, though I think these go for about $3 at home improvement stores (maybe less if you can just get the metal posts)…

I use a wide transparent packing tape to adhere the metal posts to the back of the sign (I didn’t use the original “open house” part of the sign).  Below is the attached sign, ready to go…

All that is left is to put the completed sign out in the yard…

Free Printable Obama Biden Signs (Larger Size)

Update: Looking for yard signs? If so, check out our How to Create Your Own Signs post.

Here are some additional updated versions of the signs featuring the Obama Biden text with the “O” logo. These signs are ready-to-print PDFs and currently sized for tabloid sized paper (17 by 11 inches) – if you’re looking for standard letter sized paper (8½ by 11 inches) see my previous Free Printable Obama Biden Signs post. The contents of all the PDFs here are vector based and should scale up nicely if you wish to print at even larger sizes.

I’m providing this larger size to make it even easier to print out and display. Tabloid size is a common size that can be printed out at nearly every copy shop.

I wanted to take a moment and tell everyone about a very cool website I stumbled upon. The site is yeswecarve.com

This is a great way to show your support for Barack and Joe! These are also a good alternative or addition to yard or window signs. It also seems like a fun way to get kids involved in the process.

They have detailed step-by-step instructions which walk you through the process. Thankfully, they have several sample templates which you can print out and trace onto your pumpkin as a starting point…

They’re even running a contest where you can submit photos of your pumpkins and enter for a chance to win an iPod…

I wanted to take a moment and point out the great tool that the folks over at blankforobama.com have just released. It’s an online sign generator that allows you to fill in the blank and create your own “                for Obama Biden” signs. I’ve been thinking about putting together something similar to this for some time now, but haven’t found the time to implement it. Great work!
