Independence Day Subway Art

How do you put into words the feelings that you have for your country?  One of the first times I remember feeling a love for my country is when I was in the 4th grade and we were taught God Bless The U.S.A. in choir.  Love this song!  Feel free to click on the play button and listen to it while you choose your print. :)

There are four designs.  I included several prints without the 4 in the center that can be used for Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Flag Day, or for other occasions other than Independence Day.

Eleven Choices

For Personal Use Only
If you would like to share this subway art with your readers, I ask that you use one of the photos or the color choice image above.  Please don't post these images on your blog.  Thank you!

All clip-art is from Microsoft.

Use the black and white prints to print/copy onto scrapbook paper, or colored paper.  They are also the best prints to start with if you want to recolor the subway art.

*For even more color choices, read through my tutorial on

 *A big thank you to my sisters and my mom who helped me choose the words for this subway art.
To download: You must first click on the image to open it in a new window in it's highest resolution. Right click on the image and either copy and paste it into a document (to size and then print), or click on save image as to save it to your computer. You will need to size it before you print.
To size the prints: The prints look will look the best printed as an 8x10 or 4"x5" (for a card), but can be stretched to other sizes if you insert them into a document using a program like Microsoft Word/Publisher or Photo shop. Insert the image, click on it, then drag the sides of the image to the size that you want. (A 5x7 will look a bit stretched with this design.)
*You can also save the image to your computer and then use your computer's picture manager program to print it as an 8x10.
Print them on white or colored card stock, scrapbook paper, or (for the best quality) on photo paper. (Check your dollar store for photo paper, I buy packages of 8- 8x10 sheets for only $1.)

To the brave men and women who defend freedom everywhere
and to their families who have given so much--
Thank you.

Thanks so much for this subway art. I love it! I can't wait to make one for my house!!

Teresa said...

Thank you so much Janet! You are the best! I have a question for you. Could you per chance do a Dad subway art and input Grandpa for me? My husband passed away 6 years ago and while the kids don't have a Daddy they do have Grandpa's we would like to give one to. :)

Rebecca said...

I think this is my absolute favorite subway art! My husband spent a year in Iraq and ever since then, the 4th of July has held a very special place in my heart. I love all the words and the prints are so beautiful. Thank you so much!

wilonestar said...

These are so awesome. They moved me to tears and the colors are just perfect. I love having your art to express what I am feeling and hope that others see when they enter my home.

thanks so much, janet!

kae said...

I love your subway art! I get a ton of compliments when people see it. My favorite way to print them is to send it in to Walgreens when they are having their free collage promos, 1 picture in a 8x10 collage with border, they look great and it didn't cost me anything! Thank you!

Sallie said...

I'm visiting from the Somewhat Simple link party. These are super. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to pin this so I can print them up later!

Janet said...

In reply to Wilonestar: Thanks so much, I'm glad you like them. Choosing the colors is my favorite part. But I'm sure you already guessed that by how many I post each time. :)

In reply to Kae: I wasn't aware of Walgreens free collage promo. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for your comment and for passing on this great tip!

Nancy said...

Love this!! What a wonderful project! The hardest part I think would be choosing which design. I found you over at Serenity Now. Have a great weekend!!

Carrie said...

Thanks so much. I made both of the Father ones today. One for my dad and one for my husband and father of our 4 children. Can't wait to give them to them.

This is super cute (as always), Janet!! Your printables are always darling!

Sallie said...

Janet, thanks for sharing your design. I printed one up on photo paper, dug out an old black frame, bought a white mat, and I now have it hanging in my den. Easy peasy. Thanks!

Carly said...

Wow! Thank you so much - these are so cute!


Vicki @ vickidesigner said...

Very nice subway art. I saw this on pinterest and pinned it! Then I saw you posted it on The Girl Creative and had to see who designed it. Great job using WORD! Wow... LOL!

I see this is a .PNG file and not a JPG. NOt sure how to convert it, any ideas?

Janet said...

To Nanasewn: If you have Microsoft Publisher, you can right click on the image you want in the post and choose to open the image in a new window, copy it, and then paste it into a document. Right click on the image and resave it as a jpeg image.

If this won't work for you let me know and I can e-mail it to you as a jpeg.
