Where can I find the subway sign?

Look on Etsy for the distressed signs. Some are in wood, canvas and photos. I don't make the distressed look but make both canvas and frame ready high-resolution photographs with an off-white aged text. Custom and pre-designed are my specialty.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Details: Using Typography in Design
Vintage bus and subway signs have been much sought-after for the past few years. The trend hit the tipping point when chain stores started to sell new fake ones, but I still love the graphics and would not mind having one in my home. Remember how cool they were in J. Lo and Michael Vartan's bungalow in Monster-in-Law? Oh admit it, you saw it. Just say you saw it on a plane.
Amy Renea added this to Typography Makes Itself at Home
A Silhouette or Cricut machine can give you the look of authentic signage for less. A compilation of various streets you have lived on gives a trendy punch to your room and brings back cherished memories.
