Sign Painters Movie by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon

Published Mar 28, 2013

“Sign Painters” is a documentary by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, featuring the stories of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States.

“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.”
