Montclair Collage Banner Signs Revealed

30 Second Read Montclair NJ

I'm busy remaking my labels, hang tags, invoices, and business cards with my new shop banner logo! While remaking my banner hasn't rebranded my business, it was a necessary refresher, and reminder of spring in the air.

Here is the original post about reshooting signs for a new shop banner logo. Were you able to identify where any of the letters came from? Some are obvious, others more challenging. Below are the original pics I took and where they are located. I also note which letter from the sign was cropped out for the banner.

The first letter, M, was chosen from a photo of the sign in front of Planned Parenthood.

The O came from this picture taken at the Montclair Book Center.

The N was on the side of a garbage can, the signage expressing "Montclair, Where the Suburb Meets the City". (I always thought it should be phrased Where the Suburbs Meet the City instead!)

The T came from the Montclair Breast Center sign.

The C is from the ice machine at the Shell on Bay at Bloomfield Ave.

The L was high atop the entrance to Lackawanna Plaza. I was determined to use a letter from this sign, they are iconic!

The A was from one of the familiar pedestrian right of way signs.

The I was from our local chalk paint haven, Verdigreen Home. (See my reflection?)

And finally, the R came from a picture of the sign on the Glenridge Ave. post office.

They were all taken in my neighborhood, downtown Montclair, where I live and work!
