ROLLSIGN GALLERY has achieved another major milestone in its existence!
With the May 17, 2020 update, the last three low resolution rollsign images have been
upgraded to high resolution images. Now, EVERY rollsign image on the site has been
created using high resolution methods! This is the end of a 15 year long project of converting
old images. Some of those replaced low resolution images were almost 30 years old!
- FIVE NEW ELECTRONIC SIGN LISTS have been added to the Electronic Sign section: Muncie, Indiana (April 2003), two
from Fort Wayne, Indiana (August 8, 2006 and December 4, 2009), Muskegon, Michigan (August 19, 2020), and Dallas,
Texas (undated list). In addition, new photos have been added to lists from Fort Wayne, Indiana and Ann Arbor, Michigan
of the vehicles the sign data memory came from. They can all be accessed through the Electronic Sign hub page map.
Banner advertising has been added to every page on the website EXCEPT for this page, the
Introduction page, and the memorial to Ray Neilson page. The revenue generated from this will
go towards the costs of keeping Rollsign Gallery online, and any surplus will go towards new material.

accessible, but each state or province has its own directory. Just like the rollsign home page, click or tap on a province

system will still appear below the map in list format.
