We Want Frank

There was time in the sign industry – way before COVID, but way after hand lettering and the rise of computers – when everybody still read SignCraft and got 200 page catalogs in the mail from sign suppliers damn near every quarter. There were no supply issues and there were many sign suppliers just waiting to be swallowed up by Grimco…. In short, these were good days.

The Legendary FPP Ratio

Sign nerds across the country anxiously awaited the latest edition of the Feller’s catalog.

Not to see the latest vinyls that 3M wanted to charge us a small fortune for or to learn about whatever “amazing but actually shitty” solvent printer was released. But solely for the chance to browse the Fellers catalog and count the FPPs. The Franks Per Page. The golden ratio before golden ratios.

In a stroke of marketing genius, Frank would share actually helpful tips throughout the catalog that made you want to look through every single page.

1 FPP was common. 2 FPP was a little more rare. But 3 FPP, sheeeeeeet, you had hit the jackpot my friend.

Sign makers no longer get as many thick-ass catalogs full of sign supplies. And SignCraft is now an online-only magazine. But we feel that Frank’s legacy is forever.
