Retro Signs and Low Tech Advantages!

Posted by Joe Giral on

Retro & Low-Tech Signs

What are "Retro" and 
"Low-Tech" Signs?

WHERE TO FIND THEM AND WHO NEEDS 'EM, ANYWAY?
Low-tech is simply another term for "uncomplicated, older or simple technology and products". What's the advantage of low-tech signage? Generally speaking, there are few or fewer moving parts, easy to figure out, usually easy to find a replacement part if necessary and for the most part, costs much less to buy and operate than modern technology.
