The signs we make at Mystic Blue Signs reflect a sophisticated community with a strong sense of its
own tradition. Customers usually ask us to create the designs, and we have revived lost traditions like curled
metal and turn-of-the-19th century styles to express the diverse flavors of the New Orleans area.
The signs in our portfolio were made by proprietors Yvette Rutledge and Vince Mitchell
with the same materials and techniques used by the great sign and graphic artists whose work inspired us to
become lettering artists.
Please contact us for more information about making an old-fashioned or vintage sign like this for you.
