#361: Nantucket Signmaking

To make a readable sign,
you have to have contrast:
Say you’re running for Board of Selectman,
as my son Tobias is doing,
and you plan to spend a lot of time campaigning outside
the Stop and Shop in the evening,
It would be best to print your scallop shell logo
and name in black on white paper,
so your button will show:
But if it’s a mailbox you’re painting for a shop:
White on black is better.
Campaigning and consigning and repainting
are all perfect activities for March.
Just don’t get too busy to let in the cat.
