Janet & Stu’s Show & Tell
Signs are a brilliant tool to teach kids their ABCs and to show them
that letters come in all different colors, shapes and sizes.

Our daughter loves to shout out letters that she recognises in signs and advertising when we’re on walks downtown and on long road trips to Nana’s house. In our business, we often come across abandoned single letters which were once part of larger storefront signs and love getting them for our shop. They are a lovely and unique way to personalise and bring character to any space, particularly a child’s bedroom or playroom.
From our love of signage, we collaborated with designer Jim Datz to create this Manhattan Print – inspired by all of the wonderful, classic urban street signage of Manhattan, but with a playful modern aesthetic. We have one of the prints hanging proudly in our daughter’s room to remind her of where she was born and that she’ll always be a city girl at heart.
