Downtown business discount
Are you looking to add a little je ne sais quoi to your business? Why not freshen up your signage with a hand-painted sign? Roger Black, of Hardluck Studios, is such a big fan of downtown Fairbanks that he’s offering downtown businesses an exclusive 20% off discount on hand-painted signs!

Why just downtown? “This is where we try to draw all of our tourism,” Black said. “I’m fond of downtown and the old-timey air we have about us.” The sign above, for Fairbanks Distilling, is just one of Black’s signs.

If your business is interested in new signage, you can reach Roger and his team at 374-7857 and via email.
