With your help altBricks Street Signs will be the newest addition to the product lineup! We have produced a test run of these street signs and they are fantastic, reaching the highest level of quality. We are using state of the art printing methods that result in an eye popping solid white raised ink imprint.

We need to raise some startup capital to kick off this effort and that’s where you come in. With your donation you will receive samples of these high quality signs. Imagine finally having signs on the street corners of your diorama or layout!

The product line will be sold two ways: "Sign Pack" and "Street Lamp Sign Pack" kits. We are planning 3 different sign packs that enable a grid of streets. Each pack will have 5 primary signs (the same name on each) and 5 secondary signs (all different names). This combination enables a realistic naming scheme along your primary street (1 x 5 grid). If you have more than one primary street you can order additional packs and choose a different primary sign name, to increase your grid size up to 3 x 5. And of course if you want signs on both sides of your street just order two of the same primary sign name packs.  We will also offer stand alone (1 x 5 grid) products: Tree names and Brick Element names. 

Custom sign names will also be made available. Character lengths can vary based on font spacing, approx 8-10 chars max.  This info will be worked out once the project closes.

The "Sign Pack" contains ten 1x4 green tiles; 5 primary signs (all same name) and 5 secondary signs (all different names). Note: These are LEGO(r) brand 1x4 tiles.

"Street Lamp Sign Pack" contains ten 1x4 green tiles: 5 primary signs (all same name) and 5 secondary signs (all different names).  It also includes 5 lamp post assemblies: lamp post, 1x1 translucent MF head, 4x4 radar dish, 1x1 brick with 2 adjacent side studs, and three 1x1 round plates. Note: These are LEGO(r) brand 1x4 tiles, the balance altBricks.

Risks and challenges

We already have an agreement in place with the brick supplier and manufacturer. Design for manufacturing is complete and we are ready to begin manufacturing the first run of altBricks Street Signs. However, delays in production may happen, depending on the factory’s production pipeline and labor availability.

There is always a risk with development of new mass production printing processes. Although this is a proven print technology it has not yet been used by this manufacturer in this way. Given those challenges our confidence is high due to the other core competencies of brick element modifications done by this manufacturer.
