One of our most popular displays is the mini blade signs that debuted at last year’s Picnic and Community Expo as part of the birthday celebration. Roxann Ploss, from the El Mirador Neighborhood Organization, has the graphics for a lot of those signs. If your organization wants to order your neighborhood’s mini blade sign, please contact Roxann and she’ll make the arrangements. New neighborhoods or neighborhoods working on a design for a blade sign might consider having a mini sign made to give you an idea of how it’s going to look.
