  • You may enter something similar to another entry, just give your project a special spin.



Channel letters are sign letters that are typically illuminated and hang over storefronts.  They are typically metal, which forms a channel into which the lighting is placed. Thus the name, "channel letter." 

  • We have over 300 channel letters in stock, and all were recovered from local businesses that went through signage changes. 
  • All the letters in our side yard are on sale for $10 each.  SO it's a great time to buy a letter, even if you don't enter the contest.

FINE PRINT/ More rules

  • Each voter may like multiple entries, and this is ok.
  • Each voter may comment on multiple entries, and this is ok.
  • Only the first comment on an entry by a voter counts as a point, subsequent comments are just for fun.  So, 10 different people can comment on an entry to earn it 10 points. But if any one person makes 10 comments on the same entry, that's still 1 point.


This contest is just for fun and while we will issue Gift Certificates, there is no cash value to this contest and you agree by participating that it's ok for your work to be displayed on our facebook and for use with other promotional purposes.  You agree by viewing or participating in this contest that you're not going to sue Sarasota Architectural Salvage (SAS) or anyone associated with SAS for any reason originating from this contest.
