About Tin Signs
Tin signs started to appear in the early 1900’s advertising well known brands and replaced wooden signs and traditional painted signs outside shops. Whilst originally these signs were made of tin, nearly all of what we refer to these days as “tin signs” are actually sheet steel metal signs that have been pressed, embossed, painted and weathered to look like the old fashioned tin signs. The biggest known usage of tin signs was during World War I & World War II with many signs of General Kitchener, Walls Have Ears, Careless Lips Sink Ships and other well known phrases being used to provide information to the masses. Nowadays tin signs aren’t seen that often other than for decoration of bars, restaurants, and of course homes adding retro styling and a cosy feel. They make excellent gifts and can brighten up and add character to many places. Read more about tin signs at Retro Planet.
