10engines over at kaufmann mercantile -show card/sign writing
Head over to Kaufman Mercantile to read a small post they published for me on a certain type of sign writing; show cards. If you live in Somerville it might remind you of McKinnion's in Davis Square and their handpainted grocery signs. The pic below from googlestreetview; must be 3 years old now. Went round to discuss the signage with them and realized that about a year ago they switched over to printed signs.
Another sidenote; if you live in the UK you will know these types of signs below from High Street "arcades". Eye-watering. Fugly as hell. Awesome. From theonlyone's flickr.
