IMG_4850_sizedCapitola is an amazing place to work and live and, as so many know, it is an amazing destination. People come here to visit the sandy beaches, cute, trendy shops, and to enjoy all that bounty that Capitola offers. Its location on the Monterey Bay and its proximity to the UCSC offers a vibrant life and business community. For your shop or business to stand out you need every edge you can get, and a custom sign from renowned sign maker Signs by Van is a great start!

Since 1091, Signs by Van has been the premier custom sign company for all of your signage needs in Capitola. We are a firm believer that the proof of quality is in your portfolio. Signs by Van’s custom signs can be seen all over Central California and throughout the United States. 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 custom business sign to be as unique and the best fit for your business and that starts by getting to know you.

All our signs are custom made. 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. Some business who call themselves sign makers are actually sign brokers, who outsource all the work. Signs by Van provides an award winning design and custom sign fabrication team that truly understands that time and effort spent on concept and design, 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!

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 handmade business signs that we build in Capitola are of the highest quality and are expected to last and age with grace.
