A Little Hamstring Humor..

Runners Euphoria

Getting Your Money's Worth

Without any direct, personal knowledge, I have heard it said that avid runners are often the beneficiaries of what they call, a runner's high or euphoria when running. I would imagine that the feeling that they are referring to is generated from a physiological response of some sort of endorphin release. But there are other things that can add to the joy of running also, like: Humorous Signs!

I am always on the lookout for a fun sign story and this one did not disappoint. Apparently, the Bank of America in Chicago sponsors an annual marathon. With every marathon brings a big batch of screaming and supportive family members and friends to cheer their favorite runners on and holding their heartfelt, homemade signs. These signs are from various Chicago Marathons and one Pittsburgh Marathon..

An Infectious Dose Of Energy!


As I scrolled through the list of fun sign messages, I could not help but to think about how these signs would make me feel if I were the marathon contender, running by them. They are really hilarious. I can just imagine the tired, beleaguered folks running by and struggling to maintain their dwindling energy when coming upon the sign(s). Talk about a pick-me-up!

A Sign Of Unity

Banana Humor

What I especially love about the humorous marathon sign idea is that it is so much fun for everyone. It unifies the runners and their cheering crowd, but also makes any marathon planners or passers-by....happy! Wouldn't it be nice if the signs we hold up for most events, made us happy in this way..

Pittsburgh Marathoners...

This Sign..Found Only In Pittsburgh

In honor of the upcoming Great Race in Pittsburgh this weekend, Vital Signs wishes for you all:  Perfect weather, lots of hydration and a sprinkling of funny signs to propel you to the finish line!

If Vital Signs can help create your humorous message, please give us a call!

Windows Of Opportunity

Customized Window Graphics

Allegheny Health Network

In contrast to the past, there are now a variety of branding/home decor ideas within the space of digitally printed graphics. Our Vital Signs ' customers seek customized window graphics options for privacy, brand promotion, artistic work and home decor.

Branding.. Not The Same Ole, Same Ole

Back In The Day

There was a time when a business identification sign was the only source of business branding, unless a business could afford to feature a billboard message somewhere...not anymore!

The sky is really the limit for business branding options and even the sky can be used for moving airplane messages. A much easier and affordable solution is to utilize the windows/doors within a business space. Window graphics are an affordable and easily changed option for business owners and others.

Customers may be looking for window coverings to send an internal or external branding message, for privacy or simply as an artistic touch to the work environment. Fortunately, Vital Signs can take care of all of these for you.

Dual Solutions

It is not uncommon for customers to request window graphics as an extension to their custom wallcovering (another custom solution that Vital Signs offers). Looking to add a very custom touch to your corporate or home interior with wallcoverings, we can assist with the design, production and installation of your one-of-a-kind wallcovering/mural.

Home Decor Options

Frosted Vinyl Design For Bathroom Privacy

Whether you are looking for custom corporate wallcoverings or custom wallpaper and applications within the home, Vital Signs has an option(s) for you. Looking for a small frosted vinyl enhancement for a window...we can do it!

Artistic Bamboo Design

I Can See Clearly Now

Perhaps you have thought about adding window graphics but you're afraid to block the view/light? Not to worry, Vital Signs has a see-through vinyl option which allows the message to be seen for outside viewing, but does not obscure the inside views out of the window(s).
