From as early as the late 60s I have been involved in the making of signs and vehicle graphics. Before computers, when letters were traced and hand cut, I would help my dad in his sign business. I was on scaffolding, next to a semi trailer when we put up the first Controltac film. All the 3M big shots were there to see how their new product actually performed out in the field. Since then I have applied vinyl graphics to trailers owned and operated by companies such as Wrangler and Allied Van Lines. We used to travel the Midwest and South decorating/installing signage on 50 trailers in South Carolina or 100 in Detroit.
Then at some point I got involved in the screen printing side of the business. Working for some of the largest commercial screen printers in the Phoenix area, I handled the accounts of several familiar companies based here in the valley. We did signs for CSK Auto which owns over 1300 stores across the country and locally operates as Checker Auto Parts. We also did most of their in store point of purchase displays, decals and window signage. Fry’s Food & Drugs was another key sign account that was mine until they were bought by Kroger.
Finally, the one hour commute each way to and from work took its toll on me and I made the decision that I had toyed with for several years. Graphic Solutions was born. I am using all my collective experience in sales and the knowledge of the industry to help YOU succeed. I am here to support Arizona's local Small Business community with all of their printing and graphics needs.
