Nostalgic Collectible Metal Retro Signs
The tradition of metal and tin signs dates back to the mid-1800s and continues through the late 1940s. Most of the signs were painted with enamel and coated with porcelain to make them even more durable. In fact, these signs were so sturdy that many outlived the products and companies they were advertising. The signs were vibrant and colorful, full of imagination and artistry. Brands like Coca-Cola and Budweiser became instantly recognizable in our culture partly due to the popularity of these metal signs. During World War II, metal sign production was banned, as the material had to be saved for war purposes. After that, plastics took over and replaced the tin signs, but the intrigue remained. These days, quality replicas of these original signs are more popular than ever. Our metal signs are reproductions of authentic vintage advertising. We also stock humorous signs and celebrity portraits, all available at our low wholesale prices. Our metal signs are proudly made in U.S.A.

There are several different styles of signs for the legendary Coca-Cola brand, and the classic Jack Daniels label.
