Peter King, director of Gigantic Signs in Adelaide, says his sign warning vaccinated people not to enter the business is simply “making a statement” and he doesn’t intend to check on people’s vaccination status. Meanwhile, Wideformat Online launches a free file service for sign manufacturers to stimulate retail business re-opening, see below.
The sign - “Do not enter if you have been Covid-19 vaxx'd” – has attracted global headlines since being placed in the window of the Gigantic Signs building in Kent Town, Adelaide.

Peter King, Gigantic Signs
“If nothing else, it’s waking people up,” King told news.com, describing current COVID-19 restrictions as "a crime against humanity.
“It has been allowed to fester into a global sprawling, chaotic mess of human misery and financial desperation,” he said. “What I am truly ‘anti’ about is the government mandating an unproven, untested injection that by definition is not a vaccine but an injection of multiple materials that have not gone through any long term human trials to test for its safety and efficacy. We’re witnessing human trials right now."
King said he was inspired to put up the sign after a winery in South Australia said it would not accept unvaxxed customers. “We have here in Adelaide a company that said they did not want to have any people going to their winery that weren’t vaxxed. I thought that was grossly unfair and intimidating.
“I was simply making a statement. If it is good enough for businesses to allow only ‘vaxxed’ patrons to enter their business premises, then I should support the ‘unvaxxed’ with the opposite stance.”
King said he has received vaccinations in the past - including for polio and cholera - but decided against a Covid vaccine: “This is not a vaccine, it’s a genetically modified substance. Why would anyone want to?”
King told New York-based The Epoch Times he might consider taking down the sign, but he would not be forced into the action. “Freedom of speech is still available in Australia,” he said.
With over 26 years’ experience, Gigantic Signs offer a complete range of services from consultation, design, manufacture and installation.
