NotTheSignShop Maker Studio | Middlesex, Vermont

We are Not. Not The Sign Shop.

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

Our smaller items (read: "shippable-sized stuff") are offered for sale in our Etsy Storefront. This is the place to find things like our famous Well Water Signs, cut-t…

Frank wouldn't. And you shouldn't either.

The anti-theft Frank's Way sign is on its way to our Etsy store.

Those of you have have purchased any Frank's Way sign have probably purchased many other Frank's Way signs. They're mesmerizing theft candy. No matter the hardware used, they find their way off the sign post and disappear into the ether.

This one applies a new balm to the theft epidemic - guilt: "Frank wouldn't steal this sign and you shouldn't either. Seriously. Honor his legacy. If you really have to have this, order one at We won't tell."
