Rollsigns from Grand Rapids, MI
This mylar rollsign set represent the two main
styles Grand Rapids used in the later days of
rollsign use: All capital letters (left) and both
capital and lower case letters (right).

The front rollsign (left) is dated October 29, 1991
and has 35 exposures. The "/76th" on the first
Route 1 and the "OAK IND. DR." on the second
Route 4 exposures were blacked out. The Route
12 exposure was a later addition.

The side rollsign (right) has no print date. It has
35 exposures. Like the front sign, the "/76th" on
the first Route 1 and the "Oak Ind. Dr." on the
second Route 4 exposures were blacked out,
and the Route 12 exposure was a later addition.
As well, it appears the sign was originally printed
too narrow for the sign boxes, so strips of blank
mylar were taped on to either side of the rollsign
to make it fit. The newer Route 12 exposure was
made to the correct width, and doesn't have the
add ons.
The front sign's info tag:
