Making signs for your garden railroad

By Kevin Strong | December 28, 2017

Create custom stickers, dry transfers, decals and more

Although signs are everywhere in everyday life, they’re typically absent from many backyard railroad scenes. If one wants a particular sign, then one has to make it himself or have it made commercially.

Fortunately, in this day of desktop printing and digital technology, the palette we have available is constantly broadening. Even old standbys, like decals, can be produced at home. And the new technology of laser cutting is making old techniques far more viable than they have ever been.

In this 9-page downloadable guide, I’ll highlight some of the more common methods for creating signage for the railroad, their strengths and weaknesses, and how to apply them.
