In 1940, Franklin G. Horn and his wife Alvina started Ace with a pick-up truck and modest store front. Hand lettering glass doors, vehicles, and oil cloth signs was a way of life, and as technology advanced, so did Ace Sign Co. Now, Eighty two years in business, six generations, and 134 years of sign making have changed the way Ace Sign Co. operates, but our passion to take care of our customers and provide them with the highest quality products remains unchanged. From hand lettering to digital printing, from neon to LED’s, and from billboards to full motion video boards, Ace Sign Co.’s philosophy continues to guide the company as a leader in the sign industry.
