horizontal sign tutorial

You'll be making something like:
(This is from an old horizontal sign of mine ayyyy)

the steps

1. Open a new document 467 wide and 350 height. Yup, the opposite of what regular signs are.

2. Ok so when you do the vector: Make a vector that's the horizontal size OR open a regular vector, change the colors on it, merge ALL the layers together, and then drag it over to the new document. Ok see how it's not the correct size?


Click "Edit >> Transform >> Rotate 90 clockwise" You can rotate it 90 counter clockwise also. Line it up!


3. The decos and text and cutout and all that you basically do the normal way.

4. Ok so when you're finished and ready for a border. Open the border you want to use. Change its colors and merge all layers together. Click "Image >> Image Rotation >> 90 clockwise."


Now drag the border onto your sign like you would with a regular sign.

Finished Product:
