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…

We Made This

A sampling of projects we've worked on:

Private Residence, Montpelier 
Making the less-than-traditional a familiar friend by utilizing an old exterior sign as the focal piece on a headboard.

Rich Jones State Farm, Montpelier 
Goal: highlight existing feature of the space and excite clients while helping them feel comfortable with strong and familiar elements.
