Download Artwork

We have created designed files for you to download and provide to the printer of your choice. (Note: These files include “bleed” or “trim area” required by these vendors. These terms describe the printable area that expands beyond the trim lines, which will be cut off in the process of finishing your sign.)

18"x12" Sign  24"x18" Sign  36"x24" Sign

Single-Sided or Double-Sided

To create a double-sided sign, simply upload the file for use on both sides of the sign.


  1. Choose the 18” x 24” size option.
  2. Since the file is designed to provide full coverage, the "Color Themes" option does not apply. You can safely leave it as-is, or choose the white background color.
  3. Choose single-sided or double-sided, based on your preference.
  4. Select "Get Started."
  5. Upload your file. The artwork will fit the design pane exactly, but if for some reason, it does not, grab the corners of the design and stretch it to cover the full width and height of the design pane — including the gray "trim area." Or click on the artwork. A row of buttons will appear above the design pane. Select "scale to fit."
  6. If you are creating a double-sided sign, take note of the "front" and "back" buttons beneath the design pane, and use the "back" button beneath the design pane. A thumbnail image of the design will appear in the column to the left of the design pane. Drag that thumbnail into the design pane, and ensure the artwork covers the full design pane, including the gray trim area.
  7. Select "Continue." 
  8. Review the artwork. Check the statement "I have reviewed my product and have checked the spelling."
  9. Select "Continue" to choose shipping options.
  10. Proceed to payment options.
