August tends to be a bittersweet moment for us parents.  While some parents bid that school bus "Good Bye" with a whoop and a cheer, others are there with tears in their eyes.  Jane has always been the latter...  J  She's always hated it when summer comes to an end and the kids head back to their lives of learning.  As a former teacher, of course she sees the necessity of school.  She just loves having her kids around the house and spending time with them. 


This August will hold a truly melancholy time as we send our first born off to a world of higher learning.... COLLEGE!  She will be studying the world of Music and won't be too far from home.  While we are so happy to see her head on to this exciting time of her life, it just reminds us once again of how quickly "life happens". 


Pray for our son who will now be an ONLY child and have ALL of his mother's attention.... (That's what we keep telling him at least...) 


This month, we pay tribute to the wonderful teachers who have embraced the world of educating our children.  Our kids have been blessed with MANY wonderful teachers in their lives.    Teachers hold our future in their hands.  They influence the best in our children.  They inspire the talent of tomorrow.  Most of us are who we are because of at least one teacher we've had in our life. 


Happy School Year to students, teachers and parents!

    1. Sugar free mints
    2. Hand Sanitizer
    3. Hand Lotion
    4. Johnson's Foot Soap
    5. Chocolate
    6. Coffee / Flavored Creamer

    8. Special Pens or Pencils
    9. Most of all - just let your teachers know what you appreciate in them. 

Back to School Tips for your kids 

  1. Take your kids grocery shopping for those special lunch treats they like. Have your child make a list of foods they like to have in their lunch box.
  2. Keep your child hydrated. If they can have water bottles at school, buy a couple of cases now or make sure they have a refillable bottle. Playing outside at recess and riding on the bus use up a lot of fluids. Have them drink water at home too! It's HOT in August!
  3. Make sure your child starts the day with some kind of breakfast. Carb + protein + fruit = Good fuel for learning!
  4. Eat dinner together as many nights as you can each week. Ask your kids about their day, friends and what is going on in their lives!

Customer Service from Signs & More


At Signs & More, our customers' needs are our top priority. We do everything we can to insure that our customers have a great experience with their sign purchases.


Here are some things that sign customers can do to help make their signage purchasing experience the best possible:


1) TIME - give us plenty of notice when ordering your signage! Of course, some things do come up at the last minute! We understand that. Just be mindful of the fact that we work with deadlines and time frames with many customers at a time. We generally will work over-time to help our customers. However, there are times when we are just not able to do this. With that in mind, as much lead time as possible is very much appreciated. Also, let us know the date when you really need your signage!

2) AVAILABILITY - let us know the best way to get in touch with you! We need an email address and a phone number to best service you. We will be sending you proofs of your work as soon as we can. You will need to approve this work before we will order any materials and make any signage. (So be sure to check your email!) For our more costly projects, a deposit will need to be collected before materials are ordered. Thank you for your help with this.

We love our customers to see our facility and where their signs are manufactured! We also will deliver to you whenever physically possible within the time frame that your signage is needed.
