No one knows who made the first wooden sign or when. Was it in prehistoric times? Of course when we use the word “prehistoric” it actually means we do not know.
All we do know is they have been around since we did start actually writing down historic events. It is rumored that Michelangelo did wooden signs for local pubs to earn extra money while he was painting the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo did enjoy a good brew after a long day painting in the chapel.
