Look at our beautiful new door signs! Tamrods Graphics in Gastonia went the extra mile! They donated their time and materials to do our sign work! They printed our sign with the new perforated vinyl that lets you see out as if they are invisible but those outside can't see in. We originally ordered our signs from them. They are located on the same road we are. After they saw the hundreds of people coming for assistance they decided to contribute by doing our signs free. What a blessing! See their work on buildings and vehicles!
