The 140th Annual Kentucky Derby will be held on May 3rd, and we’ve been busy filling tons of Derby orders.  Our most popular design this year is a chalkboard style invitation, so I thought it would be fun to make a free printable to coordinate.

This chalkboard style Kentucky Derby poster can be printed to hang on the front door of your party – greeting the guests as the arrive. Or, consider cutting it down to 8×10 inches and placing it in a frame on either the bar (which is serving Mint Juleps, of course) or the dessert table (which better have some Bourbon cake!).


The printable poster is sized at 8.5 by 11 inches, but you can trim it down and use it in an 8×10 frame.  Enjoy!
