Cary Sign Company has been proudly serving Cary, and its surrounding areas, since 1987. We began as part of the Raleigh-based American Sign Shops franchise system, back when computer-cut adhesive vinyl graphics were in their infancy. (Cell phones were novelties then too, and huge; most were pushed around in wheelbarrows.)
The American Sign franchise group was acquired in 2002 by the Signs By Tomorrow franchise system, of which we were then a member for the next sixteen years. By late 2018, our franchise contract was nearing its end, and we had to decide whether to re-up with the franchise or not. After some mulling of the pros and cons, our team came to a decision. The end result was that on March 1, 2019, we emerged, butterfly-like, from the protective cocoon of the franchise system to strike out on our own, not tentatively, but with tentacles headed full-force into the wind! While grateful for the many benefits that being part of a ‘coalition’ affords, our incubation time was complete. We were ready to fly solo.
