Interstate Road Signs Freebie

As I was doing the research for these signs, I discovered that some interstate signs have the state name on them and some do not. In order to make things go smoother, I just put the names on each sign. I4 in Florida is an example of a sign that does not usually have the word Florida on it. Well, mine does. There are 2 reasons for this:First off, I wanted to make sure that the states that DID have the state name were labeled with the name of the state it was going through. As you can see from the collection, some interstates run through a lot of states. And some, like I4, only run thru 1 state.

The other reason is it can actually serve as a little bit of journaling to have the state name there because when you do your layout it says where the photo was taken just by using the interstate sign. Maybe you don't want writing on your layout. Here is just enough to get the point across without breaking up the flow of your design.

These signs will go great with my State Template Series. There are 93 numbered interstate signs and 5 directional signs (north, south, east, west and an arrow) in the Interstate Road Sign set. Enjoy scrapping all your travels!

Oh, by the way, notice that Aklaska doesn't have any traditional interstates so that is why it is not represented with any signs. Hawaii has interstates, but only on Ohau and they are numbered differently than the signs in other mainland states.

Hey,

Who would have thought one could learn so much geography while scrap booking? These signs are fantabulous!! Thanks for doing all that research and for sharing your creations (not to mention the geo lesson! LOL)

Yes, now you know the answer to which US state doesn't have any interstate highways! LOL I would have guessed Hawaii...and been wrong! LOL

Yea! I just got back last night from a 3 day driving trip with lots of "70 mi an hour through the car window" interstate shots. These will be perfect! Thank you so much for sharing.

I love these but there's no I-69 for Michigan and Indiana.

Judi: I only used a couple of interstates for each state. I tried to represent each state (except Alaska which doesn't have interstates.) There are quite a few interstates in some states.

I need I-69 too. Lansing, Michigan.

Unable to get this link to work. Says file is not valid.

Checking on the link now...don't know why it would get almost 400 downloads and then stop working without me touching it. I'll try to get a new link up by the end of the day.
