Cohen said that the iconic neon sign, “Rick’s Cafe Americain” was made using photographs and original movie clips from the 1942 film.  Just Neon worked along with the Historic Sign Restoration Company of Rochester to recreate the nostalgic sign.

"Neon signs have been around for years and with the strong resurgence, we are filling the needs of this form of lettering and lighting,” said Cohen. Just Neon is located on James Street in Utica where they create neon signs and clocks, and repair neon signs from around the world.

Custom made signs from Just Neon have been shown on major TV network shows including NBC’s "The Today Show," "American Restoration," "Deal or No Deal," as well as several other major network shows.
