Vintage bar signs add a personal touch of nostalgia to any bar or pub décor. The assortment of signs runs the gamut from old whiskey and cigarettes advertising to humorous anecdotes from days of old. Most vintage signs are collector’s items today, reflecting the individual interest and taste of the bar owner.
However, in their original concept and design vintage bar signs were actual advertising methods used by authentic companies, to publicize their product or services. Today, the most popular signs are the ones that are comical in tone, bar patrons tend to want to relax and unwind. Bar signs no longer try to sell the patron anything, but are more a part of the décor and atmosphere of the bar more than anything else.
