Well, technically we are a bunch of sign, design and tech nerds who got together
to create the best e-commerce sign site in the known universe . . . but you can
read more about us further down the page. We wanted to create a business with one
simple goal - provide the absolute best sign buying experience out there. To do
that, we had to create a site with a killer design tool, offer superior customer
service and produce the highest quality signs using the best materials.
We launched Signs.com in 2012 with the backing of Ferrari Color. Who? Well you might
not know or care who they are, but Pottery Barn, Starbucks and Lucky Brand sure
do. In fact, those are only a few of the companies who use Ferrari Color to produce
their signs and graphics. The good news is, because Ferrari Color is our production
partner, the same level of quality and detail
these awesome companies get is now available to individuals and small businesses
But we didn’t stop there. We feel strongly about offering our customers more than
just great signage and amazing customer service--we aim to educate and inform our
users on all things related to signs. We want to help you find new ways to attract
customers for your own business, learn best practices when creating signage and
assist you in planning great events. The Signs.com blog brings you daily insight
from successful business owners, guest posts from industry experts and tips to help
you get the most out of your signage. We also have how-tos related to the installation,
maintenance and care of your professionally produced signs.

Chief Operating Officer
Don’t be fooled by the picture, Nelson is of legal age to run a sign company. In
fact, in his short career he has already launched multiple businesses, been the
VP of Marketing for Lendio, a company that facilitates loans for small businesses
and was the co-founder and President of SEO.com, the premier SEO company (in his
words). Now, Nelson has set his sights on leading Signs.com, the greatest online
sign company in the world, into a bold new future.
Nelson says, "Starting Signs.com has been the best experience of my professional
career. I love helping small businesses grow through marketing. Plus, I get invited
to a lot of parties now, as long as I bring a cool banner with me."
After realizing his MBA wouldn’t pay itself off, Daniel traversed the marketing
landscape doing everything from retail window displays, to paid-search, to consulting,
to developing national strategies with the likes of American Express, Officer Depot,
and Legal Zoom. Daniel is passionate about marketing, social media, graphic design
and writing stodgy corporate press releases. Well maybe not so much that last one,
but 3 out 4 isn’t bad.
Daniel says of his experience working at Signs.com, "I love my job. I mean, what
male wouldn’t want the word communicate in his title."
Brian is an artistic genius who has designed web and print collateral for a practical
who’s who of Inc. 500 companies. In 2009, he won the Copper Ingot from the Salt
Lake City Chapter of the American Institute for Graphic Arts for creating one of
the best design/advertising pieces in the region. For someone with all this recognition,
Brian is an extremely gracious and humble designer - you know, in an “aw shucks,
well yes, I am design genius and much better at this than you” sort of way.
Brian’s favorite thing about working at Signs.com: "I get to follow in the footsteps
of my uncle, who hand-painted signs . . . just without the mess of all that paint."
Early on, Catherine had dreams of becoming an astronaut. Those dreams faded quickly
as she realized that NASA did not accept candidates based on their ability to write
entertaining short stories or correct poor grammar. Luckily for Signs.com, Catherine
turned her talents to writing full-time after stints in the education and real estate
industries. She is now the senior copywriter and majority contributor to the Signs.com
blog. If you haven’t read her posts (especially her creative Top 10 Signs lists),
then your life is seriously lacking some much-needed enjoyment.
When asked why she loved working in the sign industry, Catherine said, "You know,
I have always had a fascination with the Zodiac."
It seems like Brad has been involved every facet of the IT world since 1996. He
has done stints in tech support, network security and programming. Brad’s work might
seem boring, but Brad sure isn’t. In fact, he was an Arabic linguist with the U.S.
Army and an expert in the Middle East before getting into software development.
Note to self: Don’t call Brad boring.
For Bradley, working in the sign industry is a dream come true. He says, "علامات
هي باردة". Uh, OK Brad.
The Entire Production Team
A lot of amazing people
Yeah, we already talked about them. But we wouldn’t be who we are or where we are
without our pre-press, printing, fabrication, quality assurance, and shipping teams.
These guys know what they’re doing. They’ve been doing it for a very long time and
for a lot of very awesome companies and people around the world.
Melissa is a recent graduate of Southern Utah University where she studied Graphic
Arts and Design. Eager to prove her worth, Melissa joined Signs.com as an intern
back in 2012 and immediately made an impact. With her wealth of typography knowledge,
she has single handedly made the Signs.com template library the best in the industry.
Melissa says the best part about working at Signs.com is "the constant threat of
getting pegged by a NERF® dart. It really keeps me on my toes."
Here at Signs.com, Kyle is our equivalent of the 5-tool baseball player. But instead
of hitting for average, hitting for power, base running, throwing, and fielding,
Kyle excels at SEO, paid search, social media, blog commenting and obscure viral
video references. These skills far outweigh the two “strikes” against Kyle – being
left-handed and loving the New England Patriots.
"Working at Signs.com is great," says Kyle. "I love the freedom I have to sing Rebecca
Black’s Friday each week without judgment by my fellow co-workers!"
