From a sign-making company?
 

roflol Sign makers need a lot of hand-holding. I knew a guy who bought a sign/banner printing "company" and was doing art prints, large format photos, etc. The thing could print up to 1200 DPI inkjet onto art canvas and the guy was just goin' to town with it. I stopped in one day and it was cranking out a 1200 dpi print of sunflowers... unfortunately it was a photo off the internet, maybe 400 pixels wide... so at the size he was printing it was effectively about 12 dpi. But each of those pixels were being faithfully reproduced at 1200 dpi. I tried to explain where he was going wrong but he was happy with the output so I shut up.

Nothing to do with fonts or apostrophization, sorry. Brush Script and I've successfully forgotten the other stuff. 

 

This reminds me of a sign shop (FastSigns) that I drive by every day.  For several years, they had vinyl signage on one of their windows as follows:

CONSRUCTION
SIGNS

They finally removed it (not corrected, just removed). I wish I'd taken a photo.

Fascinating discussion of editorial oversight and the fallout from not having effective ombudspersonages anymore.

"As per usual"has bugged me for years, but I just spotted it in an otherwise entertaining article:

As per usual, Trump demonstrated his affinity for jumping up and down on Republicans’ failure to repeal Obamacare...

There's a supermarket I go to that had similar overhead signs with things like "Bottle Juice", "Bottle Water" as well as the "Can Vegetables", etc. until a few years ago when they did a big interior remodel and now they say "bottled" and "canned" instead.   Of course "bottle juice" and "can vegetables" make sense when you're in a grocery store, but it always bugged me.  Also, instead of falling into the "12 items or less/fewer" trap, their signs say "no more than 12 items" when they're turned on.
