You are my sunshine is one of those iconic sweet songs that everyone instantly recognizes. And for good reason. Its sweet melody and soothing words seem to instantly calm the nerves. And that is what inspired this metal sign’s print file that I am sharing with you today, FREE!

You Are My Sunshine Metal Sign
I really considered making this sign for my shop. I mean can you imagine the beauty each of my succulents would shine on a 10×14 metal sign? After much deliberation, I decided to go another route.
Speaking of my shop, this sign was designed with the print file for my favorite print I have so far!
Creating A Beautiful Metal Sign
Have you heard of Unsplash.com? It’s a site that some of the most amazing and talented photographers share their work, for free. They have a simple tagline:
Gifted by the world’s most generous community of photographers.”
It is there that I found Connor Baker‘s beautiful sunflower image. After adding a few lines of text to his image, I turned it into a print file.
After heading to Smartsign.com, I choose my sign size, 10×14. This is where things got a little confusing for me at first. If you follow these instructions, you should have no issues!
Head to smartsign.com
Under the description, there is a green button that says personalize. Hit that.
Choose orientation (if you are using my free print file, choose vertical please) hole pattern (set to standard) and click I will upload my artwork LATER (don’t worry, you will get an email from Smart Sign that asks for your print file.) And finally, add any special instruction you might have. (there are none for this print)
Add to cart and pay for your purchase.
When your inbox gets the artwork email, please reply with this image. It is already converted to a print-ready PDF file so you don’t have to do anything except download and send it off!
Approve your print file. This will most likely be the following day after you have sent your file.
Hang Your Metal Sign
This sign turned out exactly as I had pictured, and for that, I am just a little surprised. I did not really think they would be able to get the correct colors or that it would be flat. But I was dead wrong. What I got was a high-quality metal sign that is super glossy and perfectly painted. The hardest part will honestly be where to hang it!
As you can see, I choose my kitchen! I adore the brightness that it adds.
Tell me, are you in the market for a metal sign?
Until next time,
