Steps for creating the Printable Teacher Sign
Start by measuring your clipboard or frame and print out the Home Sweet Classroom using paper. .
As you trim this printed Teacher SVG, keep in mind you’ll need a little extra space on top for the clip and leave the bottom part of the clipboard if you want to add a name like in the example.
Once the paper is trimmed to fit, simply add it to the clipboard. You can get creative and add a WELCOME sign to the clipboard, so if the paper is removed, the board I not blank.
Next would be to add the Teacher Name or Grade to the sign. I would do this in sticky vinyl for the plastic clipboard or HTV don’t he chipboard type. This is great.
