local font find #5
Just north of Lawrenceville, Pa, into Lindley, New York, you'll find this little service station. The sign has all the elements that let the viewer know that a skilled sign painter was involved. The layout is neat and clean with a bit of lateral movement. The 's in the business name fills the space created by the shift in "NYS INSPTECTIONS"(helps to balance it with the other outer text of FULL SERVICE GARAGE). "BILL" is set up to the left as "Demings" leads the reader up and to the right while "service center" brings us back to the centered established date.
Nice drop shadows on the script title. Love how the "Demings" extends into the green border.
Overall, the sign is quality! Fading out of paint never hurts!!!!
