“Being in the sign business for most of my life and also a Iowa Hawkeye fan,” says Denny Holton, Holton Custom Signs, Cherokee, Iowa, “I thought it only appropriate to combine the two!”
“This is on my 1954 Chevy pickup,” says Darren Maurer, Maurer Signs & Design, Sioux City, Iowa, “which I drive daily. It is always the topic of conversation!”

“I used the GOLDLF plate for many years,” says Louie Pascuzzi, Economy Sign Co., Danbury, Connecticut, “and it did bring in the occasional job by making people ask me what it meant. After the explanation, I would tell them that I was a sign painter.”
“I’ve only had the WALLDOG plate for a few months, but I love it.”
“I’ve never got an order from my custom plate that I remember—just questions from my peers wondering how I got it,” says Eric Snodgrass, Snodgrass Signs, Fayetteville, Arkansas.
“I applied for it in 1991 and got it. It was on my VW shop van first with its purple numerals done with 1 Shot enamel. On my black pickup, painted the standard blue numerals black. Arkansas’s new plate [previous] uses black copy on light blue and white plate. ”
“I’ve used this plate on three different trucks,” says Dan Menta, Menta Grafx & Fine Art, Bronx, New York. “It always starts a conversation and that has led to many jobs. Before I put the black reflective, digitally-printed graphics on the tailgate I even got pulled out of line at a traffic stop just so the cop could ask what the plate wording meant. “

About the January/February issue

Dear SignCraft,

I have to comment on the current issue, because the level of talent and the quality of the work in SignCraft continues to amaze me. You have to look no further than the Design & Price feature to see that the debate on the lack of creativity using computer-based design is a hollow one. Design is at the greatest point in our history right now, and I can’t thank you enough for bringing such work to us.
