Akers Signs - Four Decades of Excellence

Akers Signs was founded in 1972 by Dick and Sue Akers and quickly developed a reputation as being for quality sign making and highly personalized service.

Dick Akers began hand-painting signs during his teen years, and mastered his trade as a member of the U.S. Army while stationed in Germany.

The Akers family lived in their shop when their business opened. Rick Akers, oldest son of Dick and Sue Akers, was born in 1969 and literally grew up in his parent’s sign business. Rick started working at the company in 1982, and by 1997 he managed Akers Signs. Foreseeing changing trends in modern signage, he moved the company in the direction of electric signs. Rick Akers became the owner of Akers Signs in 2006.

"Our company has greatly expanded in our capacities and our range of services, but our common thread throughout the years is our ability to confidently guide customers through the sign making process—and most importantly, our customer’s satisfaction with the end product. People, Products, Processes – These are attributes of Akers Signs that will never change." Rick Akers


*I’ve owned a small business for 20 years & always had minimal signage. This past year we relocated & I felt it was time to look into better signage so I contacted Akers Signs. I worked with Rick Akers & Michelle Miller for both indoor & outdoor signage & I would not hesitate to recommend Akers Signs to anyone. They were always there to give me ideas on what they thought would work best, they took care of all permits & they stayed within my budget. When we originally contacted them their production time wouldn’t have given us our signs in time for our Grand Opening, but they went out of their way to get our signs up & looking fantastic the day of our Grand Opening. Our sign has been one of our best investments & marketing tools & has brought us additional clients strictly because they have seen our sign.* - Danielle Wirick, MS, CSCS, FMSC
