St. Paul street sign manufacturer needs a copy editor [IMAGE]
A street sign on the west side of St. Paul that reads "Unversity Ave." will be replaced next week, about a month after it first went up.
The sign was installed by Lakeville-based Safety Signs, but the company says it isn't at fault for the mistake.
Jay Blanchard, a manager with Safety Signs, told the Pioneer Press the sign's lettering was printed by another company -- a company apparently in need to a copy editor.
"When they come from the manufacturer, sometimes our field guys don't even notice," Blanchard said.
According to a 2010 New York Post report, replacing street signs in the Big Apple costs about $110 a pop. If that's also the case here, then somebody at the sign manufacturing company is responsible for a three-figure mistake.
