Order a replica or custom street name sign

Street signs for Pacific and Burrard Streets

Street name signs give us more than directions.

They mark places where we belong and remember, and honour people and events in our history.

A unique gift and souvenir

Do you love Vancouver? Know a transportation enthusiast? Picturing a sign for your home or cottage?

Celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and retirements with a new, replica street name sign.

Order street name signs of any City of Vancouver street (such as East Hastings Street or Commercial Drive) or any imaginary street.

Signs are reflective, made in aluminum, just like on Vancouver streets, or alupanel, a dense plastic with aluminum veneer. You can have lettering on one or both sides. Mounting brackets are sold separately.

The signs are for personal use only: place them on your private property where they do not interfere with City operations.
