who needs a printer?

I was going to assemble yard sale signs by printing Futura Bold in red over old maps, but I couldn’t get my printer to work (alright fine, I just don’t understand where the paper goes, ok?). So I thought, what would be the next hipsteriest thing to that? I looked around my apartment. Screen printing? Would take too long. My yard sale is in two hours. Black sharpie? Minimalist, but so banal. Then I realized that I could just cut up a cardboard box, paint it with chalkboard paint, and write on it with white chalk:

It took me about 15 minutes to do four. Thanks to everyone who came over!

    And thanks Jessica for the abundance of size-6 shoes (and the oddly-fitting Levi’s, that turned out to actually fit me quite well)!
