A Signarama shop was who a local Ghostbusters fan club called to recreate the famous sign from the movie franchise.

After a successful crowdfunding campaign, The Buffalo Ghostbusters club enlisted Signarama Huntington Station (Buffalo, NY) to replicate the Ghostbusters sign that hung over the New York fire station, Hook and Ladder No. 8, in the movies. For those unfamiliar, Hook and Ladder No. 8 in the Tribeca neighborhood of lower Manhattan was featured in the original franchise as the Ghostbusters’ headquarters.

At first, The Buffalo Ghostbusters’ plan was to replace the sign with a prop, but when their fundraiser exceeded expectations, they commissioned Signarama Huntington Station to construct a true-to-life reproduction. The two-sided LED sign is now on display outside the firehouse.

“We expected to raise a thousand dollars for this project,” said Dan Liberg of The Buffalo Ghostbusters. “But once donations exceeded the original amount, we decided we needed to do right by the sign and replace it to its original glory.”
