Welcome To Retro Road Vintage Sign Co.
Retro Road is a unique sign company taking an artistic approach to vintage and retro style garage and bar signs. I hope to put a smile on your face through the creative expression of days gone by and a simpler era.
My goal is to create beautiful one of a kind vintage themed signs for you to hang on your walls using a combination of creativity and traditional sign making skills.
My sign art is meant for interior display only. I don't really recommend any of my vintage signs be used outdoors. Here's why. Part of the process of making them look old is taking a sander to the nicely lettered panels. This breaks down the integrity of the paint. The signs are sealed as a final step for protection from moisture and to some extent sun, but if installed in an area exposed to extreme sun, wind and rain they likely won't last more than a few years.
I'm not a commercial sign shop so I don't do mainstream commercial signs. What does that mean? I don't do signs on corrugated plastic, I don't do computer cut vinyl signs or large format digital prints. All my signs are hand painted. I do not travel for onsite work. All work is completed in my small Parksville shop and shipped to my customers.
