    Still trying to figure out how they messed up this bad. Found this driving through town Sunday night. Also you can't tell from the photo due to lighting, but the "T" was printed on clear vinyl and only half of it printed white, so you can half the modules in it.

    The face was nowhere to be found, it's quite odd.

    This looks like something the first company I worked for would put out with pride and wonder why it wasn't a repeat customer months later :banghead::banghead:

    You old farts need to get with the times. That's the latest look. It's called the open face tear drop look. Costs twice as much.

    Looks more like a 'lightning bug' festival all taking a dump at the same time.

    It looks like they all went out partying last night. The "B" got drunk and puked while the "T" well she did not get all her clothes back on after hooking up with a lower case letter. "B&" take care of each other and are joined at the hip.

    Signs are supposed to attract attention. This one did that job so well it ended up on a sign forum. Hard to beat that.

    Yes that's what I was thinking.
    looks kind of artsy.
    Maybe the company paid extra for this.
    Kind of like torn blue jeans that cost more.

    Almost as good as an upside down sign, now that gets attention.LOL.

    On a serious note, I'm not surprised at all seeing something like this, I have been asked to retrofit signs for national account hacks, saying they cant afford the hours we are quoting for & Can you just tear out the old stuff & stick the LEDs ...it doesn't need cleaned, ...& don't bother with adding the silicone the VHB will be fine on the un-preped surface. My response was, "sorry we don't do work like that" Its a good way to make your employees think this is the half as way things can be done. ( gets bad habits started)
