    I've started seeing some really neat cardinal and gold ISU signs that have people's last name below them. I've heard a metal/welding shop in the Story City area makes them... a google search led me to a place out of Texas...

    Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

    Based on the info in your post, I'd say south. :spinny:

    I'd say north, he's trying to get from Texas to Story City. Hop on I35 in Austin and don't look back.

    Do you have a picture of one, either that you've seen or from the place in Texas, you can post on here?

    Also, could be one of the guys in the parking lot before games that sells stuff. I've bought 2 or 3 things that way. Can't recall if it's been the same person though. I think one time the guy did mention being from Story City and that was something he fabricated out of metal.

    He said they are $160 + shipping which to Iowa is about $50.

    If we combine orders the shipping stays the same so if anyone else is thinking about getting one we should probably order them together to save shipping and 10% because of the multiple order discount.

    So it would $169/per instead of $210 if we went in together.

    Get in contact with the agriculture department at South Hamilton HS in Jewell. They can fix you up A LOT less than the prices quoted here. One of these signs sits in the FFA Display building at the Iowa State Fair till late Sunday night if you are planning to go there.

    I was given a metal sign from one of my groomsmen as a gift for my wedding. He works with vinyls at a sign shop in Texas..The sign isn't intended to be displayed in your yard, but I thought about putting it in my garage..At the moment it sits in my incomplete man cave. Just another idea..

    We saw this company at the Ankeny farmers market earlier this summer. They had some really neat ISU stuff and said they do a lot of custom work. They're located in Winterset:

    For anyone that wants signs contact the South Hamilton Ag Teacher (Steve Olsen I think). They are $45 dollars.
