by CDezLowe No! Bring back the previous signs!
As a military spouse, we have bought these for each duty station, including Germany...and we love them! I was attempting to order one for our current station in South Korea. However, now they have changed and are all capital letters, as well as not allowing for international cities. I am so disappointed! Please allow us to order the previous style!! Please!??

Rated 1 out of 5 by TravelingMilitary Bring back old style!
We've been purchasing these signs over the years for every duty station. They are perfect and I get many compliments on them. Unfortunately, I will have to find a new way to display our travels. This new design is quite bland. Also, putting the new design under 6 signs of the old design looks tacky. Very disappointed in this change. Bring back the old design! Or sell them both!

The signs that LL Bean had previously were much more appealing for hanging on a wall. These are very plain and have no design to the script like the old style did. The older style also had a nice boarder, very disappointed. Look very boring on a wall.

by MilitaryTraveler Dissapointed-New design leaves a lot to be desired
I have seven other LL Bean custom signs from past duty stations. Three more in the "new" format arrived - and although upper and lower case was specified - and the state requested to be spelled out (description states up to 14 characters for the state) - the City was in all capital letters and the state was not spelled out. Very poor attention to detail by LL Bean. The "new" design moves the latitude / longitude to a third line - not on the right side of the sign.
The changes are really not "improvements".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Legacyleader Personal touch for patio, porch, den, or military
Love gifts or things for the home that are personal and tell a story about the people that live there, this is one of those items.
I ordered a red sign with our village information and have it on our large front porch. A friend ordered a sign from their hometown for her out of state college son and another friend ordered one sign for each duty station served in their 25 year military career.
Material of sign lends itself to inside areas for best results. I do keep mine on our covered front porch most of the year but do bring it indoors during the cooler, wet winter. 5 STARS.

I like it because it is different. Just trying to decide where to hang ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by thxandgigem Very well made and designed
Got two of these as a Christmas gift this year - so wonderfully made and I like the shade of red and blue of the ones we were given. Going to add a third in the green shade, just wish they had a yellow or a beige in the color options!

Good quality as usual. Bought 4 different towns for daughter who has lived in four different places in her life. Wish they had more colors and would do international cities

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lab120 Latitude/longitude Sign
The staff at LLBean went above and beyond to help me create a sign I wanted to give as a gift. Instead of using the town and state, they worked with me so the street name, town and state were all included with the longitude and latitude. It looked terrific and was a great gift for a new home owner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bgeorge Good Idea Sign
We received a sign like this as a Christmas gift a few years ago and liked it so much that we ordered (what we thought was) the same sign for a family member. The sign that we received, however, was not finished nearly as well as the sign we received from L. L. Bean two or three years ago. In particular, the edges were not painted at all and, though the sign is a rustic sign, it did not have the quality of our sign. We know that L. L. Bean is the marketer for this sign, because I called the manufacturer (name on the back of the sign) who told us you were the only ones through whom we could order the sign.
Long story short, my wife does decorative furniture painting as was able to paint an appropriate finish to the edges of our new sign and it will be given as a Christmas present. Still a good product, but not quite the same quality as before.
