Austin design firm creates artful free signs for businesses opting out of Open Carry

The recent Open Carry law that went into effect Jan. 1 in Texas has many businesses confused about what signage should be displayed in order to opt out of PC 30.07 Texas Open Carry.

Much of the available signage with the proper legal language is, well, pretty officious and aesthetically off-putting.

Austin design and public relations firm Wyatt Brand has artful and FREE answer to that.

“As a small business…  we were struggling to figure it out how to comply with the rules while not defacing their businesses with plain or ugly signage that sends the wrong message,” the company announced in a statement.

“So, we’ve designed two series of signs from which any Texas business can choose and download at no cost whatsoever—printing at their local copy shop or sign company. There are legally compliant, opaque posters at the most efficient size we could manage as well as files for transparent signs in windows.”



Here’s Austin360’s lists of Austin arts venues,restaurants and movie theaters that have chosen to opt of Open Carry:

Doesn’t the legal language of an official 30.07 sign look much better in pink?
