Free Printable BOO Sign | The TomKat Studio

It’s October 1st! It’s officially okay to start decorating for Halloween {so excited to start}! Two years ago, I designed a fun printable BOO sign for our readers to download and use to BOO their own neighbors. It was a hit {it has been downloaded thousands of times} but a few of you have asked for a new design because your neighbors now know that it’s your sign, so you can do it secretly anymore! Ask and you shall receive…

    THANK YOU!! My parents had people who used to “Boo” in the neighborhood when they moved to Pennsylvania a few years ago. I have lived all over the country and never had anyone “Boo” us. I had never heard of this. I LOVE your sign! Thank you so much for sharing. I now live on a little island and I am going to try to get this going around here this week. I can’t wait to see how it goes!

    I’m so surprised to see this on your blog! I thought this was only a “Midwest thing.” I grew up in AZ and lived there again after college and never heard of this “booing” tradition. When we moved to Chicago I saw signs popping up in windows and thought it was such a fun idea.

    I’m printing your signs tonight, baking tomorrow and my girls and I will go “booing” after they get home from school.

    Thanks for the cute art work.

    Can you do an office version? I’d love to do this at my workplace! It would be perfect if it said “I’ve been booed” :).
    Will do this in my neighborhood too though- FUN!

    October 4th, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    Me too! I’m wondering about a modification for work too! I just thought of using the first BOO sign and typing simple instructions to go along with it if Kim couldn’t modify it. I think it would still be successful. I’ll stay posted to see if anything pops up for the workplace too 🙂

    Call me a moron, but I can’t figure out how to download this file. I’ve tried Explorer on a PC, and Safari, Firefox, and Chrome on a Mac. I see nothing to click to download it, just an unformatted site skeleton that says “You’ve Been Booed!” in really really large text. Nothing I click on leads to a download. What am I doing wrong?

    Today, due to the many opportunities being made available across the web, there have been a great number of ways via which one
    can get the results that they want and when it comes to finding out how one can get the best of SERP results that will be able to ensure that you can get the best of what you want.
    They can’t simply place a site at the top of the engines when there are hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of others that offer basically the same thing, and provide basically the same information.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, such as you wrote the
    e book in it or something. I feel that you just can do with a few percent to pressure the message house a bit,
    however instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read.
    I will definitely be back.

    Fortunately, Carol and Alan, the friendly Canadians who own
    and operate Balamku (and live on the premises) have provided a very deliberate anecdote to both the
    generic beach resort and the cruise ships’ environmental implications.
    Henri when he was about seven years old. What I
    mean here is insulting the believers and humiliate them is problematic and sometimes dangerous but
    if you are a harmless person and live your own life without trying to change other peoples
    opinions, nobody will ask for trouble.

What you do is you stuff a bag with candy, print out one of the “You’ve Been Boo’d” papers, leave it at your neighbor’s door (usually you do this to people you know or it might seem a bit creepy), ring the door bell and run away. I always get a kick out of seeing the Facebook posts of the people we’ve boo’d trying to figure out who it was. […]
