Before the movers even showed up with our stuff, I had my "Welcome" sign on the door. Derrick thought I was crazy, but hey! I seriously had nothing else to do! We were living in the house with minimal household goods and waiting around for our stuff to arrive. So when my new sign showed up in the mail I couldn't wait to have ONE thing done.
Every time I post a new tutorial for a wreath I get just as many comments on the "Welcome" sign on my door as the wreath itself. So I thought I would share where I order my signs from and how you can get one yourself.
Many have asked if it was a stencil. No, it is not a stencil. That would be too nerve wracking for me to use on my front door. It is vinyl. Just peel and stick. I wasn't sure how it would look on my new door since it is an 8' door and the placement would be in the center, but I think with the wreath it balances out.
Since my door is grey and my other was black, I like ordering my vinyl in a tan or beige color. White just seems to bright. So if you are wondering what color that is and what it would look like on a dark door, it is "beige".
And it holds up great. Here is my door to our home in Ohio. Wind, rain, snow, below freezing temps...my vinyl stayed on.
I was saddened when the gal that I ordered my vinyl signs from closed her website, but I found another site that I am very happy with as well! I contacted Laura, at Say it on the Wall, and showed her a photo of my door in Ohio. She emailed back within an hour saying that she could match it with the same font and everything! Wonderful! But then I went on her site and was browsing other fonts and asked maybe if I could see a sample of what it would look like in another one. She sent back several options of what it would look like, stretched to the size I needed it and I chose one that I thought fit the style of our new home.
The price was around $5 plus shipping and was shipped to me in less than a week. I couldn't be happier with the service and am happy to have a replacement company to order my vinyl from. I have a cricut and can cut out my own vinyl, but sometimes for bigger projects I prefer to order out.
So there you go! If you have lettering or a welcome sign on your door I'd love to see it! Post a link in the comment section and I'll do a feature post of creative doors around blog land!
