How to Print

These signs are best printed at the following dimensions:

  • orientation: landscape
  • width: 24 inches
  • height: 18 inches

If your home printer cannot print these dimensions, many professional printing services and office supply stores can help with this.

For material, corrugated plastic is common. But most professional printers should be able to recommend a material.
