New Equipment in 2021

New Equipment in 2021

2021- a year of new toys!  Creative Sign has added a lot of new equipment to their arsenal this year to help our people do their very best work – and do it efficiently!

 

Our Channel Letter Department grew with the addition of our Channel Letter mezzanine, which helped make room for our new SDS Channel Bender SXP, Trimmer, Sander and Stitcher.  Now we can offer our customers the sleek look of trimless channel letters!

Company-wide we are enjoying the new upgrades in our system and computers as our new tech company Technology Architects took stock of our computers and system this past year and continue to upgrade our machines to keep us current and running strong!

 

And thanks to Be’s Vending for our fancy new vending kiosk!

 

With all of these investments, Creative Sign is looking forward to pumping out even more great signage for our customers in 2022.  A big thanks to all our amazing team members that help us achieve higher and higher goals with each year, always striving to improve efficiency, product offerings, and the customer experience!

And Creative Sign Rockstar of the Quarter goes to…. Jessie Niles!

 

Position:  Sign Consultant / Service Coordinator

Trait of Extreme Awesomeness:  Work Commitment

What her co-worker has said about her:  “Jessie is one of the hardest working people at our company, along with one of the most diligent workers I’ve ever met.  She is constantly trying her best to exceed expectations while managing an enormous workload.”

 

Jessie joined the Creative Sign team in in 2020, when a number of companies were feeling the pinch and laying off workers.  She soon found that the workload for her position at Creative was high and quickly began to balance multiple projects and additional responsibilities.  She’s a member of the Creative Sign Safety Team, took on the Service Coordinator position, and covered for multiple people while they were on vacation and leave over the summer. 

 

Her thorough and helpful nature soon helped her gain respect and love from so many of her co-workers across many departments and positions.  “Jessie is a workhorse salesperson who never shies away from helping others and will take on anything!  She’s thorough, organized, and great to work with!  Definite Rockstar material!”

 

Congrats, Jessie!  We’re so happy to have you on our team!

And Creative Sign Rockstar of the Quarter goes to…. Timothy Porter!

 

Position:  Graphic Designer

Trait of Extreme Awesomeness:  Equality

What his co-workers have said about him:  “Timothy always treats everyone with respect and expects no favoritism.  He has taken on challenges…and has handled it like a champion.”

 

“He speaks the truth, plays by the rules, listens with an open mind, and doesn’t play favorites.”

 

A graduate of NWTC, Timothy began his Creative Sign career as a Production Setup Artist in July of 2019 and quickly showed his aptitude for creative, thorough, and efficient design proofs, becoming a full-time Graphic Designer 6 months later.  Since taking on that role, Timothy has consistently risen to challenges in ever larger and more complex projects, most recently taking on large-scale ADA packages for some of Creative Sign’s biggest clients.

 

Congrats, Timothy!  Thank you for all your hard work!

Rockstar of the Quarter: Tracy Burkel

And Creative Sign Rockstar of the Quarter goes to…. Tracy Burkel!

Position:  Senior Project Manager

Trait of Extreme Awesomeness:  Identity

What her co-worker has said about her:  “Tracy is truly a joy to be around and do work for.  Her always appreciative words make me want to strive to do better whenever I am working with her.  She’s professional, thorough and always willing to answer questions.”

 

Tracy joined the Creative Sign team in May of 2016 when Creative Sign was in a time of growth and transition.  We were in the midst of expanding our building and staff to accommodate our large increase in customers and projects.  Tracy’s ability to balance many duties and sign packages at once made her an immediate help in managing ADA jobs in that expanding department.  As the ADA Department grew (largely due to Tracy’s awesome customer service and methodical handling of projects), Tracy was able to bring new and exciting prospects to Creative Sign.  Her hard work, extremely friendly personality, and outstanding organization even landed her on Creative Sign’s Wall of Fame in 2019 and 2020 for sales over $500k and $750k.

 

Tracy is fearless in tackling any project and dedicated to giving our customers the best in quality and service.  For these reasons, Tracy is the perfect Creative Sign teammate to represent the trait of Identity.  She is a Creative Sign ambassador.

 

Congrats, Tracy!  Like your fellow Sign Nerd said, “Tracy is long overdue for the Rockstar Award!!!”
