From April to October, Bob and Marilyn Fowler travel in their motorhome to antique engine and tractor shows in the eastern part of the U.S., where they custom engrave magnetic display signs and name badges. They also do mail order business all year long, even while on the road. The two-color signs are engraved on laminated plastic and can be anywhere from postcard size up to 12 by 12 in. "Our signs list the tractor, year, and model and your home town and state. I can also put the serial number on it if you like," says Bob. "Several color combinations are available. For example, a Deere sign might be made with a green plastic background and yellow letters or visa versa. A Farmall sign would be made in red and white."
The signs sell for $15 to $27 apiece, depending on size.
