There is no place quite like Santa Cruz. The climate, the people, and the geography mean that this mecca for alternative lifestyles, skating and surfing is a destination for people who love what they do and do what they love. Your business is likely as individual as the people here and you want that unique character to be broadcast to all who pass. A custom business sign from Signs by Van can do just that and let your potential customers know who you are and what you offer them. Our signs are made in-house, not farmed out. Our skilled artisans will work with your from design to installation to make a sign that will be a big part of your brand identity and on-the-ground marketing. Our custom signs are made to last and to age with character for a long lasting marketing partner for 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. 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 signs that we build in Santa Cruz are of the highest quality and are expected to last and age with grace.
