I am in love with the Restoration Hardware subway signs:
But sadly, they are over my budget at a whopping $650.00. I want to have two signs side by side in our master bedroom behind the headboard which would put the RH signs over 1300.00. The room is a mint green and doesn’t have anything on the wall at all.
So I found a seller on etsy who customizes them – either like the sign above or a more personalized one which you can put places you’ve visited, etc…
Opinions? Should I spring for the RH one or the cheaper one? Or should I do a customized one? Thoughts????? (Side note – I am working full-time but completing my Masters Part-Time and planning a Nov 2011 wedding – money isn’t tight but it isn’t flowing….)

Have you checked out Young House Love? I think they DIY’ed something similar for their bathroom in their old house. Sometimes Sherry pops on Weddingbee.

I think you can totally DIY that. I think the biggest difference between the Restoration Hardware one and the Etsy one is that the RH one goes margin to margin whereas the Etsy one is centre justified. I bet you could do it in Illustrator and photoshop and have Kinkos or whatever print it off for you pretty easily!

Why not register for them?
Also, found an Ebay store for them:
Not sure how much they are though. (looks like their prints are around $200- $300 Canadian)

I really like this sign from Etsy, and am considering one for myself. It’s kind of in-between in price from the other options you’re looking at, and still keeps the justified formatting. The listing is for a family tree version, but you could put whatever text you want, I’m sure.
I like the idea of the custom option, that way you could put locations/stops that are significant to you or your life. For me, that would be worth a little more money.

I like the Etsy version, that way you can customize it. Or you can buy it for a first anniversary gift because its paper!

oo i LOVE these! am totally going to surprise FI with one when we move in together.
I’d just buy on Etsy- says it’s only $23, worth paying for rather than the aggravation of DIY

How funny is it that no one chose the Restoration Hardware sign? It does look nice but I guess it’s not the best value. I think the custom sign would be nice because then you have a say in it, but the non-custom Etsy sign would be good too. Also keep in mind that in a few years you might want to change it all up, but if you spend a lot now it might feel weird getting rid of the signs. I bought a really expensive bed a few years ago. I do like it but I don’t love it like I used to. But I feel like I have to keep it for a long time to justify the cost.
