Say Goodbye to Sign Stealing

21 Dec

It’s probably a bad idea to steal a subway sign. It would most likely take some heavy duty wrenching equipment too. With “Flying Junction,” you don’t have to worry about all of that trouble. The Etsy retailer creates vintage subway signs and bus scrolls to adorn your walls. Flying Junction professionally prints the signs on canvas with ink. Check out their Etsy shop for more, and see two Brooklyn signs below.

    I love those vintage signs and Flying Junction looks like they’ve got great ones. I’ve also seen Restoration Hardware carry them. See also SubwaySigns.com (http://www.subwaysigns.com). They have the vintage signs in canvas, tapestry, and metal. I’ve been itching to click ‘buy’ on that site for several months…

    I also stumbled onto Underground Signs recently (http://www.underground-signs.com/home.php). They’re not the vintage ones, but still a cool site.

    As a gift a couple years ago I was given some metal ones that are replicas of the signs on the subway entrances before you go down the stairs. I have signs for the Grand Central, Yankee Stadium, and Shea Stadium stops (anyone reading this that knows me probably isn’t surprised by that list). I don’t know where they were purchased though, I’ll let you know if I find out.

    I have one of these hanging in my dining room, and it looks awesome. Very eye-catching, but not over powering at all.
