The SignSmith in Saskatoon hand-painted this steam roller for a local museum.
Dave Smith, founder of The SignSmith, really got to show off his talent with a brush on this project.

Featured Project: A Touch-Up of History

This featured project comes to us from scenic Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a city of about a quarter-million in west-central Canada that has been home to The SignSmith since 1983. Aside from all types of signage, including custom neon signs, the shop also sells promotional products and even custom direct-to-garment T-shirts. They call themselves “Saskatoon’s One True Custom Sign Shop,” and this was certainly a custom, one-of-a-kind project. Founder Dave Smith hand-painted this antique steam roller—essentially a steam-powered road grader—for the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon.
