Schnecksville, PA – Peachtree City Foamcraft has released the names of the winning entries in their annual Monument Sign Design Contest. The design contest made its debut in 2016 and continues to grow. Michael Fetter, Sales Manager for Peachtree City Foamcraft couldn’t be happier. "There were nearly 4 dozen entries this year. Several beautiful monument sign designs to choose from, the competition was tough, but at the end the decision was unanimous and three designs rose to the top to take home a prize".

The Crawford, a custom monument sign designed by FASTSIGNS Norcross, Georgia took home the Grand Prize of $1,000.00.
