Kansas City Commercial Sign
& Lighting Company

You get one chance to make a first impression - we'll make sure it counts.

Dependable.  Reasonable.  Flexible.  Professional.  Creative.  Adaptive. 

Those are the words we have built this Kansas City sign company around since our inception in 2006.  We are extremely proud to be a locally owned, Kansas City bred, company. We bleed Kansas City, and love working with large and small businesses throughout this great metro area.   

Our work speaks for itself.  We pride ourselves on taking care of customers in a timely and reasonably priced matter.  We don’t want to be like any other typical sign company in Kansas City.  We want to stand out.  We promise to follow up with you.  We promise to treat you fairly.  We promise to earn your trust.

I hope you give us a chance to earn your business.
