"Please Turn on your Sound to Hear an Important Message"
Here’s some reasons why and “You will see the difference”
Vintage Concepts “Signs” are made of Guaranteed 100% “Fired-On” (REAL) PORCELAIN over 18 gauge Steel. Our signs have “shelving”
(layers of porcelain colors “fired” over top of each other) – others cannot say that!! That’s because our signs are REAL PORCELAIN.
Many past VINTAGE CONCEPTS “SIGNS” are the ONLY Reproduction Signs that have been known to INCREASE in VALUE. Others cannot say that!!
Vintage Concepts “Signs” are TRUE LIMITED EDITION. Production numbers are very low. Once sold out, we NEVER produce more of the same run!
Vintage Concepts “Signs” offer Exceptional Graphics and Detail with Authentic Artwork.
ALL Vintage Concepts “Signs” are currently DATED. Absolutely NO “Funny Business” as being passed off as original. Others cannot say that!!
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR GENIUNE FURNACE “FIRE-ON” PORCELAIN SIGNS
Many newer retro sign vendors are passing off cheap quality signs made with inferior materials and with a “high tech” computer printer process called “DYE Sublimation Printing” as a Porcelain type sign. These signs are NOT Porcelain! These cheaply made Dye Sublimation, non-porcelain signs are described below:
The retro art work is photo copied then printed on “Special DECAL Paper” that is NO more than a vinyl like color photocopy. Then the decal paper photo copied image is adhered to a piece of overweight metal somewhat like applying you average cheap vinyl decal. Overweight metal acts to falsely create the impression of a porcelain sign. Then the dye sublimation signs are clear coated with a glossy non porcelain material.
No UV Sun Ray protection. Dye Sublimation Printed sign are ruined if exposed to the weather. “Dye Sublimation” sign colors will rapidly bleach out and fade if hung outdoors.
A SIGN IS EITHER PORCELAIN OR NOT. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS “FEELS LIKE” PORCELAIN, NO SUCH THING AS “PORCELAIN-LIKE”, NO SUCH THING AS “DURABLE AS” PORCELAIN and NO SUCH THING AS “LOOKS LIKE PORCELAIN”.
SINCE 1998 VINTAGE CONCEPTS SIGNS has PROVIDED the COLLECTOR with some of the BEST NOSTALGIC GAS, OIL, AUTOMOTIVE and TRANSPORTATION PORCELAIN SIGNS EVER REISSUED.

EVERY VINTAGE CONCEPTS PORCELAIN SIGN IS DATED WITH THE CURRENT DATE. OTHER RETRO SIGN COMPANIES DO NOT HAVE THE INTEGRITY TO DATE THEIR REPRODUCTION SIGNS.
EVERY VINTAGE CONCEPTS PORCELAIN SIGN IS HAND SCREENED WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL COLOR SCREEN PRINTED SEPARATELY THEN EACH SEPARATE COLOR IS FURNACE “FIRE-ON” AT 1450 TO 1500 Degrees Fahrenheit. This individual firing of each color creates the layering of porcelain over top of each color resulting in “SHELVING”. Then after a complete furnace firing and cool down Brass Eyelets are inserted into each mounting hole.
