A 90.25 Rating Score™, a 5.00 average star rating on verified review sites, and dozens of online reviews make Sign Pro a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner! As Sign Pro is always focused on making the world a better place, this is a review they received from someone involved with a local charity for children who have been diagnosed with cancer:

“Sign Pro did all of the signage for Camp Rap-A-Hope’s Inaugural ‘Wine Women & Shoes’ event… We could not have been more pleased! All of the signs were beautifully done and really helped to set the mood for the event. The large, black and white photos of our campers stole the hearts of all who attended! They were extremely pleasant to work with and gave us a very quick turn-around! Thanks again, Sign Pro!” -Cecy L.

Not Your Average Sign Company

We got a chance to speak with Brian Vailes, the manager at Sign Pro, about the business’ stellar online reputation and overall success.

Of course, the first thing we wanted to know was the Sign Pro secret to success. After all, any award-winning company must be doing a thing or two right. “It’s all about trying to give our customers excellent customer service and engage on as many platforms as I can and stay up to date. I follow up with everybody and make sure they’re happy with our service,” Brian said. “With us, you’re going to get the best service and quality. We’re the best around. Every job will also be done right the first time, and if not, we’ll fix it.”

Building Success Through Referrals

When you do great work, your customers will want to let people know. That’s certainly not news to the Sign Pro team, who are able to get a great deal of business sheerly on a referral basis. This talented team strives for excellence in everything they do, always maintaining professionalism in an effort to be the very best sign company around — and that certainly shows through the reviews they’ve received.

Brian’s advice to other businesses that are working on their online reputation?

“In order to grow, you need referrals and a good in-person reputation. You need to keep everything current and provide good quality service and products.”


Congratulations to the team at Sign Pro for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Brian, for taking the time to speak with us!

I’ve had nothing but a good experience with this business.” -Austin S.

A One-of-a-Kind Sign Company’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Andrew Rapisarda, the owner of The Custom Sign Shop, took some time to chat with us about his business’ success online.

First things first, we asked Andrew about The Custom Sign Shop’s secret to success. “You know, I think it’s just customer service. We always look after our customers as good we can,” he said. “We’re so small, it’s just Phil and me and one part-time guy, so if anyone comes into the shop, they are talking to the people that make the signs. We make all of the signs here. We are honest with the customers, and we’ll get the job done pretty darn quick compared to some of the larger companies in the area. ”

Making the World a Better Place, One Sign At A Time

Andrew and his team take immense pride in the work they do. In fact, they gain a great deal of satisfaction from helping small businesses in their area thrive. He said, “It’s a satisfying thing to make a good sign, and it’s nice when you drive around and see your own signs everywhere. You almost get a weird feeling when you drive around and see a decrepit sign. Most of our clients are small businesses, restaurants, real estate, etc., and we love to help them out.”

Here’s Andrew’s wise advice to other businesses working on their online reputation:

“Just do quality work and have good customer service. Just talk to people and try to make them feel.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Andrew! Congratulations to the team at The Custom Sign Shop for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

I was so impressed with his prompt attention to my request. Very professional! [The] prices were great! I would highly recommend this business to anyone who appreciates [the] great customer service that is so lacking in today’s society. Thanks soooo much!” -Tanner H

“I have used Sign Pro for years for all my vehicle graphics, and they do great! Their price is great. Their service is awesome.

They do great work. Matt and his team are wonderful to work with.” -Paul W.

Not Your Average Sign Company

Production manager, Jeddie Merril, took a moment to chat with us about Sign Pro’s online reputation and overall success. The first thing we wanted to know was what sets Sign Pro apart. In Jeddie’s words, “Our experience in the [industry]. We’ve been around for many, many years. That, and the overall experience that all the employees have [collectively]. I think that helps us outshine everyone else in the industry. I myself have a little over eight years of experience. We have other employees that have several years of experience as well…”

Sign Pro is extremely passionate about their work and doing the best for their customers, which has certainly shown through the many positive online reviews they’ve received. “We definitely find great enjoyment in what we do. In many ways, myself and others kind of compare it to almost an art form, more or less. We’re creating something from the very beginning of the design process and manufacturing something that is legitimate and three dimensional at the end of the process.”

Building Success Through Dedication and Commitment

So, what is the Sign Pro secret to success? According to Jeddie, “It’s our strong commitment to making sure that we get things done right, as well as our attention to detail. Just making sure we produce the best quality [we] absolutely can for our customers. Where we live, in Cache Valley, it’s fairly small, not that small, but somewhat small, so everybody is pretty personable and everybody kind of knows each other within the community as far as businesses go.”

Jeddie had some expert advice to extend to other businesses who would like to achieve a great online reputation, just like Sign Pro:

“[Be committed] to what it is you do. Being dedicated and focused on that is what will really help you shine as a business. As for online, as things tend to lean more and more that way, everything’s kind of online-based. What gets you those good reviews and that good feedback from individuals is the good experience they have with you in person…”
