This month, SignVine introduced a lot of new changes to help the message sign industry learn about this new trend. They revamped their site to be more of a ‘donation-only site’ with a lower funding fee. Now, a non-profit looking to raise money for an outdoor message sign can sign up for a free crowdfunding campaign, uploading their story, picture and even a video. When the campaign is over, they only owe SignVine 5% of the total amount raised. Donors can even cover this fee when making a donation.
