signs of the times.

The original quality, the age, the style, the patina over the years. 50 years from now nobody will want to hang any current signs in their garage, but then again will anyone want to hang onto anything that was made in 2011. These are from another era completely....Imagine how many shitty pick up lines were attempted under the bar signs....

stripes and things.

The Copper Chopper.

Its funny the shit you can buy off Craigslist. I got this gem from garbage man who found it out back of a bodyshop, and the price was right at only $40. I doubt it`ll ever see the light of day with its current paint job, but it will look rad hanging on the wall.

fishtails and tig rods.

sparkle and shine.

I started making signs like this for my shop, I always liked the look of old lighted signs especially neon, but unfortunately the people who do know how to work with it aren`t exactly keen on sharing their knowledge. So this is what I came up with, hand made, custom painted and patina`d signs. I wanted to make something that looked like it had been found in the trunk of an old car, in a dusty junkyard in Arizona and someone had brought it back to working condition to be put on display. That was the design idea anyways. I think they`re rad. If anyone is interested in one of their own,  feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
