Thanks to all for the sign contributions on this and the other forum, for they have been coming in useful for my Spencers build. Thought I would return the favor by posting some others that maybe you all can use.

Hi Everybody,
I was looking through this thread (trying to find a sign I could use on a current project - I found one ) when I came across a couple of posts about Classic Signs Ltd. If I'm not mistaking CSL was owned by N.G.& S.L.G author Charlie Getz. I'm not sure why he stopped selling them but I'm sure the internet may have had something to do with it.

My guess is he still has all those images on file somewhere. Maybe he could be persuaded to make them available on a CD for a reasonable price.

Just a thought

Michael

I'm not sure if anyone has posted this yet but here is a link to place I go to get classic signs. This person evidently sells them (the full size REAL billboards!) Anyway they have some awesome classic billboards!

Here's a link to some signs I got from a work catalog. The full size dimensions are listed so you can scale them down.

I was actually looking for Downyflake Donut Signs as per the Sunnyside Amusement Park in Toronto circa 1950.

Karl S.- A lot of folks on the forum should relate to this since they are so full of it. Mike E.

Forgive me if this is redundant but I just stumbled across this site that has a ton of great signs. www.signsonlinestore.com

Even if it's here it may be so deep that it needed some refeshing.

Enjoy

Garth discovered this site and passed it along to me. It's a huge collection of free fonts, all organized for easy access. Even if you don't use it for sign-making (or lettering rolling stock, etc.), it's fun to explore. I had no idea that type fonts were such a major art form.
