A Sign of a Good Business: How Greyhawk Signs Began

At an early age, I dreamed of starting and running my own business.

The idea of creating something successful and sustainable to support myself and my family was exciting. When I purchased a sign franchise in 2001, my dream started to become a reality.

I loved the sign business and interacting with the community and small business owners just like me. In 2006, I ended my franchise association, and began what today is Greyhawk Signs.

I envisioned Greyhawk Signs filling an underserved niche: small business owners who wanted better overall value; good quality products, dependable customer service and the expertise to complete their projects on time, which other sign companies seemingly were not delivering.

At first it was just me and my 2 dogs, huddled together in the spare bedroom of my home. I did everything myself: answering phones, meeting with customers, filling inventory, doing bookkeeping, managing projects and more. In 2012, my wife Amy came on board to help carry the load of an expanding client demand.

By 2017, our business had outgrown the house, and so we moved into a commercial space in Littleton, CO, where we still operate today. We quickly expanded our capabilities by hiring designers and production personnel as we began in-house manufacturing and installation. This was another big step to respond to increased customer demand and become more profitable.

In 2020, despite the pandemic and an uncertain economy, we decided to go all in and expand our manufacturing capabilities even more.

Today we are a full-service sign company, with hundreds of successful customer partnerships — still going strong and excited about the future.

Our mission is to never let our customers down. When they need a sign solution, we’ll be there to get the job done.
