Let’s Move to End MS!

We’re taking a step towards a world free of MS in honor of our fellow team member. We’ve formed a team for Walk MS— an event that brings together a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the world for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
 
MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease. Our team is uniting to end MS forever, and we invite you to donate!
 
We’ve set an ambitious goal because with your support, we can get there. The money we raise will help drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most.
 
Will you help us reach our goal by donating what you can?

Celebrating 20 Years of Customer Relationships

Celebrating 20 Years of Customer Relationships

This July marks 20 years since Todd purchased Creative Sign, and the Sign Nerds are excited to celebrate 20 years of customer relationships.

The below video shows just some of the amazing customers we’ve had the privilege to serve over the last 20 years, but we’d like to thank ALL of the customers that have put their trust in Creative Sign!

 

In 2003, the majority of our projects were semi-truck lettering.  Slowly but surely, Todd built up our customer base by building up our reputation for taking care of our customers.  He stood behind his team and product by offering a better warranty than the competition.

By 2011, Todd brought Sign Consultant Kelli Lax on board, and with her, a whole new level of customer.  Projects like the Menominee Casino and Oneida Casino pylons showed off our in-house fabrication skills, and amazing customers like Subway and Goodwill Industries brought us so much repeat work that we needed to expand our team to accommodate all the interior and exterior signage, window and wall graphics, channel letters, and vehicle wraps we were doing.

As our family of Sign Consultants and Project Managers have grown, the list of excellent customer relationships we are fortunate enough to maintain has grown dramatically.  Again, thank you to each and every one of you that has put your trust in our Creative Sign team for your signage needs!  You have made us what we are today!

Rockstar of the Quarter: Alec Slempkes

And Creative Sign Rockstar of the Quarter goes to…. Alec Slempkes!

Position:  Print & Graphics Technician

Trait of Extreme Awesomeness:  Equality

What his team says about him: 

“Alec is great at what he does and is an amazing person to be around.  He’s always helpful and happy to do it.  He’s very intuitive with what he can accomplish with his machine and it always looks amazing.”

“I admire Alec for his commitment to his work and his ability to tackle anything thrown at him.”

Alec joined Creative Sign in 2021 as a Graphics Technician, quickly becoming a go-to employee for higher profile interior install projects of graphics and ADA signage.  In 2022 he became head printer on our flatbed.  Since taking on his new role he has explored what’s possible with direct print ADA, raised textures, and so much more!

Congrats, Alec!  Thank you for all you do for our team!

Rockstar of the Quarter:  Tracy Burkel

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!!!”

Happily Ever After Animal Shelter Sign Dedication

Happily Ever After Animal Shelter Sign Dedication

We are proud to be apart of so many great things that happen at animal shelters Happily Ever After (HEA). We previously donated signage at their Green Bay location, and are honored to have been apart of another donation at their Clintonville location. Their newest signage was donated by our very own Sign Consultant Kelli Lax, on behalf of Creative Sign Company, to honor volunteer Dean Ekberg as he battles stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Dean is in our thoughts as he undergoes more treatment for his cancer, but his legacy is now available for all to see who visit Happily Ever After.
