Signs are simply blocks that allow the play to input text on one side. Typically, signs are used to display text, but due to the fact they are not a solid block they are also commonly used to block the follow of liquid to allow players to move back and forth without obstruction. Signs can also be used aesthetically to create the sides of chairs or bed ends.
