NotTheSignShop | Maker | Studio | Middlesex, Vermont

We are Not. NotTheSignShop.

We are a Vermont-based Maker studio pursuing novel applications of technologies and materials, exploring connections between traditionally separate domains and ways of working, and building the unconventional in an improvisational style.

Happily at the intersection of CUSTOM DESIGN, NON-TRADITIONAL SIGNMAKING, and the EXPERIMENTAL, we partner with our clients to help the space around them convey who they are quickly, effectively, and with lasting results.

NotTheSignShop is a loose collaboration among several artists. To grant the artistic freedom and ability-to-experiment that anonymity provides, regular members receive an artist tag. Currently on the site are the works of Unruly-e, Pooks, and Fluffy.

Our shop is on a dirt road just north of Tangletown, in Middlesex, Vermont and open by appointment:

Beta Testing the Drawer Notes


It started in 2017 when a pair of shop drawers were given silly labels - "Super Powers" and "Magic Haddock". Vinyl-cut quotes on dibond scrap were added earlier this year, and we've grown fond of having them in place.

The quote for "Super Powers" borders on a bit long, but makes a nice pause in a busy day. "Magic Haddock" got long and out-of-hand, both for build-time and for reading commitment.

The single "super" piece is nice and clean, but it's also fun to put "haddock" back in order after it rides back-and-forth in drawer.

As always, stay tuned!
