Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated


I'd suggest spending some more time getting a decent cost to yourself for the reproductions. If you are a handy person, you can make those signs yourself, with only a high quality print of the original artwork being the most expensive. Grommets are cheap, bristol board is cheap, and you could easily make the metal edge with a little planning.

I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking it, but $500 for a reproduction sign is a bit too much IMHO. So I'll ask you this question: would you rather sell 5 signs at $500 dollars or 50 signs at $150? Those are just example numbers by the way. You most likely can get your cost to make the reproductions somewhere around $30-50, including your time (says the guy with a background in graphics and signage). :wink: Now if you have to pay someone else to glue the prints to the board, cut them out, install grommets, make and install the metal edge, etc., that's a different story. Your cost will be very high unless you plan to make a several hundred or more, and even then it will cost you a pretty penny.

Sell me the sign and I'll reproduce them? I sent you a pm months ago with no response. Thanks Brandon in Kentucky.
