One of my favorite memories from when our kids were little was the brisk September weekends in Illinois spent picking apples and pumpkins.  We had a place that we'd go to just over the border in Wisconsin where we could pick apples of multiple kinds, pick pumpkins off the vine and get homemade donuts and cider to top off the day.  Our fall and winter would be filled with homemade apple pies, apple crisp and applesauce!  We would have several yummy apple desserts in the freezer to last us until the next fall. 


While we don't have the brisk Septembers any more here in The South, we still have found some excellent fall traditions that our family enjoys! 


What fall traditions does your family have?  It doesn't matter what they are - just fill them with some fun memories that you all will remember!!!! 


Happy Fall!

Apple Picking and other fun STUFF


Just a hop, skip and a jump from the ATL is the Ellijay community in North Georgia.  It has wonderful apple opportunities and other fun fall traditions for you and your families.  See this website for some ideas



Get your Pumpkins Here! 


With our kids getting older and available time getting shorter, our pumpkin picking time has gone to our local church - Due West United Methodist in Marietta.  Their annual Youth sponsored Pumpkin Patch is a West Cobb favorite.  All of the proceeds benefit the youth programs and missions of the church.  They also have special Fall Family Days October 22nd and October 29th.   Be sure to stop by for some good old family fun!

.Sign of the Month



When MembersFirst Credit Union had the opportunity to greatly expand its Hiram operation by moving to another building, Signs & More was there to help them.  MembersFirst had to re-brand a former bank and make the building its own.  Signs & More made recommendations, proofs, and quotes to help MembersFirst Credit Union through the process.  After approvals, we manufactured and installed all the signage.  See below the pictorial history of what was done.


BEFORE (All the names and Colonial Bank colors had to CHANGE):

Why a sign BUDGET is important to us and YOU!


You need new signage for your business. You come to Signs & More to let us help you complete this goal. We ask you "What is your budget for this project?"


You think to yourself, "Why do they need to know this?" or "I'll bet they will make sure their estimate takes up my whole budget." or "Oh boy... here comes the hard sell...." Or "Budget? What BUDGET????"




"WOW! A sign company that will work within my budget? That's great!"


At Signs & More, we want to give you the most "BANG! For your BUCK! " We realize that advertising dollars are not plentiful in any economy. You give us your budget or at least a range that you would like to spend and we can present you with some options.


We can design you a $100 sign or a $10,000 sign depending on your budget. This is also a reason why we like to have some pricing guidelines. If we present you with a proof for a $5000 sign and you want to spend $50, you will not be happy and we are wasting your time. The same as if we design you a $100 sign and you have $1000 allocated toward the project... We need to design the BEST sign you can get for what you want to spend.


Our philosophy is to recommend what WE would do if we were buying the sign for ourselves. Our main goal is to make long-term happy customers. It's good for us to know what you have budgeted so we can give you the BEST VALUE for your dollar.
