    I've custom made a few exterior signs, but not much in the way of window signage. The latter winds up so small, it's almost a pointless exercise.

    The reason I asked that is I’m going to change the stock names on few kits to personalize them if possible.
    An example is this kit I’m building that has the window signs you see but I don’t want use them, but,, yes they are really small. Making signs for outside wall I can do but wasn’t sure if I would be able to do the windows.

    Yeah,I found that out awhile ago when trying to print a white letter wall sign.
    The more and more I look at this the window is so small and I mean really small that I think a store sign above the door will be the way to go. I’ve got other stuff for the windows.
    Thanks

    There are signs in the windows of two stores on "Main Street" on my little N-scale layout. They were printed on white paper on an inkjet printer.
