    Yep,
    The only place I’ve seen them is spandex:
    page92 of their catalogue, "Moneyspinner: the moneyspinner is the ultimate rotating sign. Moulded from high quality polyethylene the sign incorporates a design feature that regulates the spinning speed, ensuring it turns at a controlled rate: 500 x 780mm; qty 1-4:£120.00, 5-9 £108.00"
    Hope this helps ya mate.

    Why not do what I sometimes do?
    Take the size of the area that there logo and number is on. Cut a rectangle of vinyl
    And cover there details apply your company logo that. Details too if you have the space. Ide use my?PC60? or ?cut vinyl? to do it & this way the suppliers details are covered.
    If someone picks it off then the print rips away with the vinyl so they see nothing anyway. Just a last resort thing of course.
    I have the roto sign brochure very nice but I don?t see to many adverts for them on it. So it shouldn?t be a problem covering them.

    Spinning signs? Now I have heard & maybe gray can help out here. But they are now supposed to be illegal in the states.
    You see these things in high winds spinning very fast. Because they have to be sturdy they are also heavy. Now take the weight and the speed it spins into account.
    If a small child were to trip into one or maybe and elderly lady being clipped by one they could easy have bones broke or worse. An instant lawsuit that they would easily win as they are only walking down a high street. Something to maybe mention to the customer if you want him to sway from using one. I always encourage them to avoid such signs. But you do get the odd one still wanting to use them.

    Below ive listed some other pavement sign specialist. Hope they help.

    I agree on the lawsuit thing and intend putting this on the quote, I wil pass on all liability to the customer on purchase otherwise he may be able to blame me for any future problems, its a lot better if I can persuade him to use a swinger or standard A board. Thanks for your help guys.
