How the heck they making all these fake signs? The tooling up would be more expensive than what they could ever make!
With the volume that they make, they ARE making a Profit. Computers have made it easier to do the graphics & make the screens. Then add the frit & fire it off in an oven.
So, for a new guy to the hobby, what are the indications that this sign is fake? What gives it away? Because, at first glance, it looks pretty authentic to me. Don't mean to ask a dumb question, but I just want to know.
