Here's a photo of the Eastwood Motel on Route 59 in Kent, Ohio after it was recently restored by the Graphic Expressions Signs & More, Inc. Cabinets were refurbished and a fresh coat of paint in the original colors was added.  The faces were reversed out for a fresh look, but still retained the original glamour of this 1950's structure.

Graphic Expressions Signs & More, Inc. also had restoration discussions with the previous owner of the Coney Island Custard Shoppe smiley face sign before he sold out to a local ice cream chain that did away with the sign. 03-06
