How are Jacob Zook Hex Signs Made...
They are created through a delicate handmade process of Silk Screen Printing. The signs are made on a double masonite board which is very durable and may be used outside. If hanging outside we do suggest coating with a clear coat spray. Pop culture give credit to Any Warhol for popularizing silk screening in American art. However Jacob Zook was creating his hand made hex signs through silk screening process 20 years before Andy Warhol's famous portrait of Marilyn Monroe.

The Pennsylvania-Kentucky Rifle
The Kentucky rifle did not originate in Kentucky. It was first developed in
the Pequea Valley, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Very few were made in
Kentucky. Owning a rifle in Kentucky was essential for survival but there was no
way to build them there. It was almost impossible to transport gun making
equipment across the Kentucky wilderness and no one there at that time with the
skill needed to make guns. Much better to have them made where equipment,
resources, and skilled craftsmen were available and the finished product then
brought to Kentucky. Hence the name, "Kentucky Rifle".
The original gun shop where the Pennsylvania Rifle was made is
located right next where Jacob Zook started his hex sign
business and his gran-daughter continues to operate today.
