When your professional life revolves around creating and supplying superb signs, you can’t help but notice signs which are just a bit unusual.
Hair salon sign that makes a statement with a question
How about this hairdresser with an unusually long and evocative name?
Ooooh Girl who did your Hair SALON

Cheese shop A-board sign pays tribute to an ‘80s classic
This is from Cheeses shop in Muswell Hill, London.
Read the words and you can almost hear the music:
Sweet dreams are made of Cheese
Who am I to diss a Brie?
I Cheddar the world and the Feta cheese
Everybody’s looking for Stilton
If the lyrics haven’t already triggered your own memories, then ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)’ was a huge 1980s hit for Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart as the Eurythmics.
Absurd sign: Access all areas – or not?
This metallic wall-mounted sign is a great example of what not to put on your sign.
To paraphrase it:
If you can’t open the door then you can’t come in!
It seems more than a little absurd that this message needs a sign at all.
You can’t help feeling there must be more to it. Could sensitive lab tests be underway requiring a climate controlled environment with a timelock on the door?
