Paris Signs celebrates 20 years in business

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Paris, Inc., dba Paris Signs, recognized in the Tri-State as a leading manufacturer of custom built signs, is pleased to announce that 2011 marks the company’s 20th anniversary. Founded in February of 1991 by Anthony Wheeler, Paris Signs was a small one man shop making simple signs.

Today it is now a highly technical manufacturer of signs specializing in the most current LED Illuminated signs.

Paris Sign is located in a 14,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility on Fifth Street Road where it houses the latest technology for manufacturing signs as well as a variety of large equipment for installation of signs, including three crane trucks.

The core asset to Paris Signs’ success is the 15 full-time employees whose creativity, craftsmanship and dedication ensures the creation of superbly built signs that last for many years.

Paris Signs caters to all segments of business in the Tri-State, including small retail shops and grocery stores to local universities and hospitals.

“We find there is always an opportunity with change. We change business strategy as our market changes to offer the products our customers are looking for,” says Anthony Wheeler, President of Paris Signs.

In March, Paris, Inc. launched SignsEZ.com, a company that caters to businesses throughout the continental United States. At www.signsEZ.com, a buyer can design, price and purchase illuminated channel letters and logos from a limited selection with a promise to ship in 3 days. This is a revolutionary concept and Paris, Inc. is the only sign manufacturer offering this solution.

More product lines will be added in the near future. Paris Signs also manages the bus advertising program for the Tri-State Transit Authority. All advertising is handled by a dedicated salesperson that coordinates with TTA, Paris Signs and the client to produce compelling and eye-catching bus wraps for local businesses.

Paul Davis, General Manager of The Tri-State Transit Authority says, “Since Paris Signs started managing our Adopt-a-Bus program, we have seen an unbelievable expansion in our bus advertising program. The graphics on the exterior full bus wraps are stunning.

“People around town continually comment about the beautiful graphics on our buses. Considering the price of fuel these days, the additional income for the transit authority is a welcome addition to our bottom line.
