About Us


Portland Oregon Sign Licensing

The Made in Oregon sign, also known as the White Stag Sign is located in downtown Portland in the Skidmore/Old Town Historic District; listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The sign was revamped in 2010 to the "Portland, Oregon" Sign and serves as a symbol of iconic National History for the City of Portland and its Citizenry.

We’d like to invite you to be part of that legacy by including the Portland, Oregon Sign in your next project. If you’d like to use an image of the Sign for any sort of commercial purpose, such as licensing, filming, or photography please contact the Bureau of Internal Business Services. Contact and fee information is listed below.
