The year is 1985, and Phoenix, Az still has that small town feel.
At that time, I was part owner of a sign shop. When a banner order
was placed, we had to wait several days for the order to arrive. We
usually ordered our banners from a tent supplier. I’ve never been
one to wait for things, but that’s how the banner industry was back
I knew things could be better, including faster service for banner
blanks and for my customers. So, out of frustration Wholesale
Banners was born (now known as Wholesale Sign Supplies). My family
and I hemmed and grommeted banners right out of our garage until we
were large enough to lease commercial space downtown, and several
years later we were successful enough to build our own building.
