|Imagine, a Melmac Sign in Oak! From Benchmark Custom Signs!|
Imagine my surprise when I found Phil over at Benchmark Custom Signs on Etsy who makes real oak handmade signs but styled with a retro look. Much of his styling and carving comes from retro fonts and old world designs. What I like most about this, is that you are able to get a custom sign for your business today, antique shop, home based business, or family's business but make it look so retro and old!
|Excellent job by Phil over at Benchmark Custom Signs on Etsy.|
My husband started his bbq business in 1982 and loved this sign he received for his 30th year anniversary! It looks a bit vintage yet distinguished as if it was made for him back in the day!. I like the fact you can have an older, industrial or mid century modern look but know that it's handmade with love and not mass produced.

Old street signs are just fab, I wish I had a club basement because I'd have them everywhere. In the meantime I'll dream that someday I can assemble our company name in giant porcelain letters from the past, of different sizes , shapes, and styles on the wall. So many colors, so little time. Suffice to say, porcelain signs are very expensive these days and getting very hard to find.
