Signs Of Fall With Custom Signs

Notice The Signs Of Fall All Around You

While the leaves begin to change colour, that is not the only sign of the autumn season arriving.  We have a few other tell-tale signs that the summer season is coming to an end. Take a look at how custom signs can hint at fall’s arrival.

Toronto International Film Festival Time

September brings a lot of buzz to Toronto, otherwise known as Hollywood North.  The Toronto International Film Festival brings some of the biggest names in the film industry to the year festival.  Last year we crafted a custom sign for Ivan Reitman’s Montecito Restaurant and this year the establishment is still a TIFF hotspot.

Fall Farm Markets Are Celebrating The Harvest

As the fall season starts, the harvesting time for many local farmers begins. This means many local farm markets will be celebrating Ontario Food Week with local Harvest Festivals.  Read about the most recent Farm Market signs that we created for St. Jacobs.

Time To Close Up  The Cottage

As the air begins to chill it means it is time to close the family cottage for the season.  There are lots of steps to closing up a cottage, but when it comes to your custom cottage sign we suggest applying some spray turtle wax to protect your sign from the winter weather.

How To Customize The Look Of Your Halloween Display

 Finding a good mix of spooky and goofy will make sure that each trick or treater has a favorite item in your Halloween display.  It shows signs of artistic talent and a bit of Halloween spirit at the same time.  Finding ways to shock and delight on Halloween might just make you the toast of the neighbourhood, or the most feared on the street.

Other Halloween Display Considerations

Always make sure your display can be easily navigated and well lit.  Remember the little ones will be trying to get around in costumes and masks and obstacles can cause tripping hazards if there isn’t a well laid path.

Look for ways to differentiate your yard from your neighbours.  Give it a personalized touch you will be sure to be memorable.

Be generous.  No one looks forward to visiting the house that gives out one lollipop.  After all it’s supposed to be all in the spirit of fun.

Find out what people liked most in your display.  It is always a good idea to get an outside opinion

Start planning next year’s Halloween display.  A well thought out design can last for years, but it is always a good idea to tweak things along the way.

Whatever you decide make sure you enjoy the process.  Planning, creating and displaying a fantastic Halloween display should delight those who stop by as well as well as yourself.   If you need a little assistance with your custom Halloween signs, make sure to contact us in early fall to be sure your items are ready in time for Oct 31st.
