It’s a (free) Sign!

Who doesn’t like to win stuff, especially when it’s totally awesome?


Well, with the New Year, I thought it would be a good thing to give something away to thank y’all for giving me your time and support in this new venture. Subway-Sign immediately came to mind as the perfect giveaway!

A couple years ago I became obsessed with having a custom-made subway sign. I scoured the Internet, but everything I found was crazy expensive. Then I ran across As I navigated through the site, I was impressed with not only the options and quality, but also the value. In a matter of minutes, I’d created and submitted my order. It wasn’t an hour later, on a Saturday evening no less, that I got an email from Chris Peters, owner of Subway-Sign. She’d already created a mock-up of my sign!




We chatted back and forth over email, and I found out that Chris, now living in Idaho, lived in West Texas for 15 years! Small world.  Chris retired from Well Fargo where she was a trust officer, but was inspired to start Subway-Sign in 2010 after creating a sign for her daughter’s first house. From the beginning, the idea behind Subway-Sign has been to make available affordable subway sign art to others for their enjoyment in their homes or offices.


Pretty cool, yes? Chris remembered me and agreed to sponsor this, my very first giveaway. Lucky for y’all (and me)!




Subway-Sign is giving away one, 20 X 30 custom-made, unframed photograph sign.


That’s right, CUSTOM! That’s a $45 value, and Chris is even throwing in shipping, but only to US addresses. Living in Croatia but have a buddy living in the US? You can still win. It will just be shipped to your friend’s house.
