Please help me. I'd like a banner for a webpage I'm working on (for personal use). I'd like it to be dimensions 940x198. For the design, I'm looking for a background that looks like aged cardboard. Foreground with black marker writing "WILL CODE FOR FOOD", similar to that of a homeless person's sign.

Thanks a lot!

Awww.

Since you're so nice, I'll let you in on a little secret...

Copyright free cardboard textures (http://designinstruct.com/free-resources/textures/cardboard-texture-pack/)

Hand-drawn type samples (http://new.myfonts.com/search/hand-drawn/fonts/)

You can type any words you want and see how they'll look in the sampled fonts.

If... by some accident... you just happen to take a screen shot, you can get that font "for free".

Then, just open your screen shot in Photoshop (or whatever) and put it on top of your cardboard.

Interesting idea. Thanks for the tip.
