    I don't think JHills idea will work on a printed vinyl sign, but will work on a hand painted one...

    Have you seen this?

    One way which might work... do your design, print your design at a smaller scale or near scale (cost) willing ... then mark up your print with what ever like sandpaper, hammer and nail marks etc. you get the point ...then take a picture or scan ...it may take some practice with some trial and error. but that's how you learn.

    Sign Boy has the correct approach. Using Photoshop you can create tons of distress effects.
