Dragon, I love your Castaway picture. That's one of the best I have seen.

I have made signs for our last four cruises multiplied by several rooms per cruise so I have made hundreds of signs. i have also done the ears and hats for the cabin number.

Rather than Magnetic paper I suggest using the photo paper as someone already did. It will save you money. I have access to a laminator so I laminate all my work and then use the magnet on a roll that I pick up at Michael's. I bring the roll and a scissor and do not even cut the magnet until I am on the ship.

I have also made color copies of some of my signs, laminated, then did the magnet thing on them.

It is not hard to print on the magnetic sheets, but I can buy a huge box of photo paper at BJ's for $20.00.

If you are doing T-shirts (transfer paper) that is when you will need to do something special.

Have fun making your signs.

I agree that using photo paper and laminating is easier than magnetic paper. BUT, IMO-only, magnetic sheets are harder to take off the door by kids just running by. True, they will come off but you have to stop and work a fingernail underneath (thus taking more time for someone to see). With all of the time we spend on these I want to make it as secure as possible without using the dreaded tape.

On another note: if anyone is interested in pix of the Magic (deck 9) early morning with no people, I can post those. DH took some one day.

I put our room number on all our signs. I have never had a problem at all with someone taking a sign. I have read of people who do, but I have never had a problem. I personalize them all with the date and the stateroom number so they would not do anyone much good...maybe that is why they are never taken.

And I have seen lots of kids run by, but usually stop and look at the door, but not mess with it other than to right a silly message on our message board. Nothing bad, just things goofy sayings.

But I will agree that a magnetic sign would be harder to remove then the laminated ones.

There are so many great ideas here. I was hoping someone could help me out with a birthday graphic for an adult/female. I've been looking around and haven't found anything that I particularly wanted to use. Thanks!

Can you guys tell me, do you actually make the clip art? If so, is it hard and how do you do it?

Mine is a collection, gathered here and there while web surfing, some of it found here on the DIS board.

Googles image search engine has some images but you have to wade patiently through tons of vacation photos to find Disney graphics.
