    After 20 years of making signs I finally decided to make a sign for my own shop.
    Never wanted one because our business does not come from walk ins.
    We moved into an old industrial part of the city and wanted to have a sign that went with the era of the building.

    And oh yeah after twenty years I still forgot to mirror the arrow so I wound up with an extra arrow.

    Beautifully understated! Love the "retro" feel to it.

    Awning over the door made out of sign off cuts.
    Windows made out of sign extrusion and polycarb.
    Rest of facade made out of off cuts also.
    The door bell is our way of going green.
    It's a rope and pulley attached to a clapper inside that strikes a big aluminum letter suspended from the ceiling.
    A 3' 3/8" alum letter O suspended with fishing line makes a wicked gong.

    I really like that arrow.
    :)
    Totally understand the mirroring thing. Have to explain it to every client I ever have who wants an arrow on a sign.
    Love...Jill

    Looks great although not much of a arrow pointing , but your front looks awesome & it fits in nicely.
    Like the door & address also.
    & I see they have to board up windows up there to keep the unwanted out in a empty building also
