First draw a rectangle using auto shapes. Fill the shape with green color and remove outline.

Signboard with outline Add relevant text inside the box. Add sheen to the board to give it a more realistic look. Learn how to create sheen in this tutorial. The result will be as follows:

Sign board with text You can make three copies of the sign board for the graphic.

2. Create the frame that holds the sign boards

Frame for Signboards When you remove the outline and fill the shapes with black color – the frame will be ready.
