Are you a car enthusiast, garage fan, man cave dweller or collector of vintage and retro memorabilia? Owning a retro garage sign has to be the epitome of man heaven. A sign that will stand the test of time, cast in solid aluminium and still be there for the great grandchildren. What more could a collector want hanging in pride of place on the garage wall?
Vintage furniture and accessories have seen a growing number of people attracted to their appeal over the last few years. Industrial themes have also had a major increase in popularity with industrial furniture and lighting being displayed in all rooms around the house.
It's no surprise then that retro garage signs and Vintage garage signs which incorporate both industrial and Vintage appeal should prove to be so popular.
Car memorabilia has always been a popular choice among car enthusiasts, from AA and GB Roadster Badges to larger collectible items.
Even if the man in your life only loves to work in his garage then a retro style garage sign makes the perfect gift for the man who has everything.
From the Pratts Oil sign to the Esso petrol and Shell signs, the classic shapes and colours are kept authentically reproduced to delight the most avid fans.
The Vintage range of plaques and garage automobilia are the latest industrial trend for garage owners or even a great wall display for a boys bedroom theme. There are probably a few females who will love them too, especially any mechanics who love their classic cars. The Michelin Mascot is also a must in the garage collection, a beloved figure which was used to advertise tyres.
We just love these old replica plaques which are solid cast metal, made in the UK by hand using time honoured traditional casting techniques. Finished in a tough powder coated finish which will stand up to the hardiest weather, they are sturdy enough to display outside. They are finally hand painted using enamels in authentic Vintage colours to emulate the original advertising bilboards.
So the industrial trend looks set to last, with these reproductions being set to last for years, they will quite possibly become collectors plaques of the future.
