The Sign is a craftable Structure. While it cannot be written on, it shows up as an icon on the Map. As such, it can be used as a marker for areas of interest which do not show up on the Map (such as Blue Mushrooms and/or Mushroom Rings, or Beefalo herds).
In Don't Starve Together, Signs can be written on after being placed, much like the Directional Signs. When writing on a sign, the dialog will give the option to cancel, generate random text, or write to the sign. The text box can also be selected and typed into. There is no restriction on who can write or what can be written on them, but they can only be written on once. When examined, the character whose player examined it will say what is written on the sign. When the sign is burnt, the character will say something about it being burnt, thus losing its written information.
- Signs were added in the A Little Rain Must Fall update.
- Naturally occurring Signs can be found in Adventure Mode, usually near Maxwell's Tooth Traps.
- One can craft Signs for free by clicking the Boards and then crafting a Sign while having the boards still selected.
- Despite Wolfgang not being able to read, in Don't Starve Together he is able to do so.
