There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.
Signs reading “Impeach President Bannon” began popping up in major cities around the country over the weekend.
The signs, posted in New York City, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, San Francisco and Los Angeles, come over Presidents Day weekend in response to what organisers say is President Trump senior adviser Stephen Bannon’s outsize power.
