    This has to be my favorite process video so far, I knew that street signs were printed, but always wanted to see it in action. I can’t believe 22 people do all the work for all of NYC. Thanks Printeresting!

    Wish they could change up the signs for fun. The little silhouette people could be wearing polkadot shirts or dresses and wearing pilgrim hats or something.
