Hello Forum Members - I came up with this post to help shed some light on the high quality of some of the newer signs that have recently been released.
Let me make a blanket statement that Iím not trying to sell this or other signs to any of the forum members. I only wish to expose this sign to hopefully dispel the rumors that all reproduction and newer signs are only scrap!
First off, itís important to note this sign cannot be termed a reproduction, since it really does no replicate any existing sign from the past. This sign displays the recognizable Pegasus horse mounted on a flange, since the sign is 2-sided it offers the beauty and appearance of the horse jumping into space.
This product is typical of some of the newer signs we offer on our site. Unlike some of the other product out there, these signs have a quality of their own. Instead of just printing on flat straight cut piece of steel with a primed back, this sign is laser cut precisely like no other sign companies have offered in the past. If I can draw your attention to the close up images of the head or the front hoofs, you see that the laser actually rounds the edges of the steel therefore enabling just as much paint to be applied to the edge as on the field of the sign. Youíll also notice the fine blue trim line on the edges, which is thickened to again protect the sign from common chipping and rust spots that appear when the sign is mounted outdoors. Also pay attention to the surface of the sign, this coating gives both the illusion and durability of porcelain however unlike porcelain, this surface will never chip out have plugs missing when someone throws a stone at the sign.
This is an expensive sign to make since the there is both inside and outside cuts which all increase the time it takes to manufacture this product. In addition while most signs are made of 18-20, gauge steel, this sign is manufactured of even thicker material.
All in all, regardless of if youíre a vintage collector or just a guy who is dressing up his garage or basement, this sign can only enhance anyone gas collection. I hope I was able to shed some light on the new technology of both re-issue and new release signs.
