There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, 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. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.

80min documentary directed by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon.

    Hi Dave. Unfortunately, due to weather, we can't make it tonight. Gutted :/ Just wanted to let you know.

    If anyone is interested in two tickets, you can have both (they will be assigned to my name) for $20 (worth $45 with booking fee).

    Let me know if you're keen.

    Thanks, and enjoy the film.

      I'd say that Meetup.com was just rubbing in the fact that you sadly missed this awesome film? Sounds odd though.

    Looks like there will be around 30 of you this evening, which is a great second screening crowd! Brock will be hosting this evening, we've a $100 prize draw lined up and it's a great film. Good times!
