SIGN PAINTERS (2013, HD, 75m) There was a time 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. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.
