IMG_4850_sizedSigns by Van is and has been the premier custom sign company for all of your signage needs in Aptos since 1981. We are a firm believer that the proof of quality is in your portfolio. Signs by Van’s work can be seen all over Central California and throughout the United States.  We want to meet your custom sign needs and we want your to be confident you are making the best sign choice for your Aptos business. To that end, we encourage our new clients to do your research, visit the sign shop, and meet the people who are responsible for branding your logo for your business frontage. Our shop is open to clients and visitors – come visit and watch the process in person! We want your sign to be as unique as your business.

Unfortunately, in this day and age, the word “Custom” is thrown around to add value to a product that in most cases, is a “cookie cutter” product. In the sign world, there are sign makers, and sign brokers. We are authentic sign makers. To make your sign, Signs by Van utilizes an in-house, award winning design and custom sign fabrication team that truly understands that time and effort spent on concept and design. This attention to detail and to your specific needs will make the difference in your final product. We feel that it is important that 95% of all final products are made in-house by local artists and our local affiliates – not outsourced out of state! Whether you choose a carved wooden sign for your surf shop or a metal sign for your economic powerhouse, we will customize the sign to your needs and make your business stand out.

Signs of the Times and Sign Builder Illustrated are international publications dedicated to the advancement of state of the art sign industry standards and innovation in compelling signage. Signs by Van is constantly approached by these publications for new and upcoming projects. We are partnered with sign material powerhouse Duna USA who have made us their flagship company for the advancement of their products. The signs that we build in Aptos are of the highest quality and are expected to last and age with grace.
