Subway Art Printable and DIY

Target Knock off Subway Art Printable and Tutorial

A Printable Decor exclusive is long overdue.  This printable was inspired by a Target outing.  While browsing, I snapped a shot of this subway art piece that I knew would be perfect for my stepdaughter’s new apartment.  Target’s version was 24.99.  Mine cost under $2.  Read on to see how I did it, and to find the downloadable file.

Here is the print I created in Photoshop.  It is 11×17 in at 300 ppi.  I love this size for subway art because of the aspect ratio (verses 11×14, which I find to be to wide for its height if I am using one word all the way across), and because I can have them printed at my local Staples for less than $1.

To download, click the thumbnail and the full size version will pop up in a new window.  Save to your desktop.  I just save it onto a flash drive take it in to the store, and Staples will print it from there on regular copy paper.   I often like to mount onto canvas, but never have found 11×17 canvases, so I end up framing this size.  This time,  I really wanted the canvas look, so I got resourceful.  I found the board I ended up using in my garage (I collect them curbside whenever I see them because they are great for mixed media collages).  This project cost $1.29 and materials I had on hand!

This is what I did:
