From time to time, one of our customers will send us a picture of their sign by a door, swinging from a rustic wooden post, or above a mantelpiece. Although we see and handle every sign as it takes shape in our shop, there’s a certain satisfaction and poetic feeling of completeness in seeing our work “at home” – in homes, on farms, cafes & antique shops, in downtown New York & Outback New South Wales, and a good number of other places too.
Everything comes in waves, and over the past two weeks, many such photographs have come in, mainly from all corners of the United States:
I think The Fire Escape Bar & Grill is my favourite. What a unique slogan for a restaurant – “Not trendy, just friendly”. It sounds like the perfect place for chewing the rag with the locals, over a Detroit Lager. I’ll have to stop in, next time I’m in Metamora.
If you happen to be the owner of one our signs, feel free to send us a nice picture of yours as well!
