Rated 5 out of 5áby Bryan1 Updating a Previous Review
I previously reviewed this item and made negative comments. I want to add to the review, but couldn't figure out how to edit it, so I'm adding this post.
After posting critical comments, LL Bean customer service contacted me and apologized for my issue. They shipped me a new sign free of charge and recontacted me to insure that I was satisfied.
The sign looks great and presumably, I won't encounter the same issue as before. It's nice to know that LL Bean stands behind their products.

áby Bryan1 Does not weather - Painted over an older sign
The listing states that the item can be used outdoors, but in a sheltered location. I placed my signed on a covered, screened porch, on the inside wall. Nonetheless, the paint blistered, rendering the sign unusable.
What's worse, I can see that this sign had a previous location lettered on it, and my location was painted on over that. I was going to scrape the weathered paint off and polyurethane it, but now that the older location is showing through, this is scrap.
It's a piece of wood, LL Bean! You had to re-use a sign you couldn't sell by painting over it?

Rated 5 out of 5áby LynnR Wonderful signs
I really like this signs. After we moved to a new condo last summer, I bought several of these signs to display on a wall. They look great.
I only wish they were available for other countries as well since we have gone to Hawaii for our honeymoon and to China to adopt our daughter.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Checarl Cool, but wish it could be more exact
Really nice looking. However I should have guessed that the latitude and longitude would be based on the general 5-digit zip code and not determined by locating the place name on a map. The location I ordered is the name of a peninsula and the latitude and longitude on the sign is not accurate.

Great looking product, I've bought around 4-5 of these over my lifetime as gifts/for myself. Easy to hang and is an easy wall decoration piece. Highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5áby jcm21403 Terrible design
Doesn't match my other signs where upper and lower cases used and whole state name appears. This one S C R E A M S the city .
Bought Assateague to go with my Chincoteague sign which I bought a few years ago. While I can't return this, I would buy another in the old style and cut my losses. I don't even want to hang this one. It's my own fault because the website described it as it is.... I just assumed it would be like my others. LLBean, you missed the boat on this design.

áby FootheFighter The old style was better
I bought this sign back in November/December of 2012 for my room mate and myself depicting each of our hometowns. My roommate has since moved out and with a new roommate to replace him, I thought it would be nice to get for him another matching sign depicting his hometown. I was extremely disappointed to see that LLBean has decided to change the design of the sign from 2 years ago. The new design will not match with my sign. I will echo the sentiments of others that this new design is aesthetically inferior to the previous design and would urge LLBean to bring back the old design.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Creativegifter Great idea for wedding
A sign for the hometown of the bride and the groom is a great way for them to remember their roots as they start their new life together. Of course a sign for their new hometown together completes the set! Personal and much appreciated. They look fantastic and are a good conversation starter too.
