2018 Author Signature Boards

IMG_0415Our 2018 collectible author signature boards (the brainchild of our very own Gone With the Grain) are here and I’m sooooo excited. Last year we created the signs with vinyl lettering but this year we are going all out with CARVED wooden signs. Folks, these look amazing! (The image below is only a sample of the carving. Actual signs are 5.5″ by 24″ to allow plenty of signing room.)

These signs are the perfect way for you to collect signatures for your favorite authors and keep the memories you create at Penned Con alive long after the weekend ends.

Save $5 by pre-ordering your sign today. We will only have MINIMAL availability at the event. Last year we sold out SUPER fast so be sure to grab yours today.
