I've owned and operated my sign shop since late 1970,creating wood signs for commercial businesses.
In 2002, I scaled down my operations, specializing in plaques for Active Duty Military and Veterans.
Originally intended for personal decor,many have been used as awards and retirement gifts.

All lettering and artwork is accomplished by hand,
with no decals, vinyl graphics, or computerized components.
