The History of Shure Signs
ReprosSigns, formerly Shure Signs, Inc., has been serving the residential real estate sign industry in Northeast Ohio for over 25 years.
When the founder asked how they came up with the name Shure Signs, he recalled that his wife always heard him say, “Sure, we can do that!” His work ethic and attention to detail not only shaped the company name, but a highly successful future.
Shure Signs was incorporated in February of 1986 in Valley City, Ohio. The company produced its own silkscreened real estate signs with metal frames.
When asked how they came up with the name Shure Signs, the former owner recalled that his wife always heard him say, “Sure, we can do that!” His work ethic and attention to detail not only shaped the company name, but a highly successful future.
In December of 1986, they purchased the property of Kingsbury Road that allowed for commercial business. The family built a shop next to their home and moved the company next door. Over time, they successfully procured numerous real estate company accounts. As the business grew, Shure Signs expanded into producing a wide range of signs, including vinyl and sandblasted signs, in addition to their silkscreen offerings. Later, they sold the metalworking part of the business, which mainly produced the real estate frames, since they could be purchased for less than their cost for producing them.
In 2000, Shure Signs decided to purchase a Zund UV Flatbed printer, reducing the need to make silk-screened signs. This allowed them to narrow their focus to producing signs mainly for the real estate industry. Later, with their equipment aging, Shure Signs began to subcontract some of their printing work to outside companies. One of those companies was Repros.
The association between the two companies worked well and, after a few months, Shure Signs moved more and more work to Repros. With the departure of a loyal employee after 16 years with the company, the owners of Shure Signs decided to simplify their lives and sell the business to Repros in October of 2018.
