Every once in awhile, the stress of sign making gets the better of us (hey, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming!). In those situations, we like to head out of town and explore a city, somewhere new and exciting! In our newest blog post series, “Signs of the City”, we’ll take you on our adventures with us and highlight some of the awesome things we’ve discovered! And take a look at some of the city’s signage, because, well, it’s in our blood.
Do you need a new alarm system? Pest control? Books, cleaning products, a new vacuum cleaner? If you live in the suburbs, odds are good that you won’t even need to leave your house to have the opportunity to purchase a wide array of goods and services: Summer is the season of door-to-door salespeople.
Some people must be excited to see these folks. After all, companies are still sending out hundreds of sales reps (often college kids on break) into neighborhoods all over the country to make appointments for services or sell products, so the practice must be effective. Many people, however, dread the ring of the doorbell on a weekday afternoon. How do you get rid of the door-to-door salesman, once and for all? We have an idea. (more…)
Is there anything more American than the “Happy Hour”? Some believe the origins date back to the military. According to Wikipedia, it was a scheduled time during the day when sailors in the Navy could relax and take in some form of entertainment.
Here at Signs.com, we have decided to take the concept of the happy hour a step further. We aren’t just discounting signs, or offering 2 for 1 coupons. We are giving away signs for FREE. That’s right. For one hour, it’s first come, first serve. It may be a banner, it may be a window decal, it might be something we don’t even normally sell on our site! (more…)
We at Signs.com are proud and excited to offer customers not only the best vinyl banners and yard signs on the market, but the most auditorily pleasing signage, as well. In addition to providing passersby with stunning visual imagery, our new singing signs offer exquisite acoustic bliss as well. Imagine—two of the five senses, coming together in one sign.
We know that signs serve many purposes: they provide direction, identify locations and announce events. It’s easy to think that signage serves these purposes just for businesses or municipalities, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes signage celebrates the milestones in our lives. Today’s story is about Sam, who just turned three. (more…)
The 16th season of Dancing with the Stars premiered on Monday with 16.8 million viewers. It’s a popular show, for sure. We’re not sure if most people watch so that they can see celebrities they love doing fabulous dancing, or if they’re hoping the celebrities trip and fall on their faces. Either way, it’s exciting stuff. Do you dream of dancing with the stars? Well… the sad fact is that most of you will never dance with Ingo Rademacher or Alexandra Raisman. Here are the top ten signs you’ll never dance with the stars. (more…)
Some signs are serious. You don’t, for instance, mess with speed limit signs. You don’t make jokes about School Zone signs or Road Work signs. Because, while they’re certainly important, they’re not very funny. Bathroom signs, on the other hand, can be quite entertaining. We hate to admit it, but sometimes here at Signs.com we’re reduced to potty humor. It’s easy to do, really… because potty signs can be pretty amusing. (more…)
Mountain monograms perch on the hillsides above communities all over the country. They occasionally denote towns or neighborhoods, but mostly they stand as beacons of school spirit and pride for high schools, colleges and universities. (more…)
We recently wrote about the merits of the TV reality show Duck Dynasty (you can read the insightful, scintillating article here). Which got us thinking: we know that if we’re sporting ZZ-Top beards and splashing through a swamp, we’re probably rednecks. But not everyone wants to be a redneck! To our great relief, we were able to come up with the top 10 signs you aren’t a redneck. (more…)
