I remember an article on how to make signs for buildings. It was a very detailed step by step description. Now when I need it I cannot find it.

Does anyone know what article I may have been looking at? Thanks

Was it:
cutting out signs printed on paper and applying them to walls to look painted on?
making scale size stencils?
making decals for signs?

There are many how-to's here on Railroad-Line, so a little more descriptive information my help us to find it for you. Here are just a few. The last two are a billboard I made, and the last being just a thread with may signs you could use.

Hi John. I did reply to you the other day, but it all got deleted in the crash.

Just go to the search area, type in signs and filter to subject only.
This brings up 7 pages of threads about signs.
Maybe it's in there.
