Helping your business shine since 1989

About Us

Ken at front door 2014Established in 1989 by Ken Boland, Affordable Signs & Banners is an independently owned, certified small business dedicated to providing you with the right product to grow your business.

When Ken first envisioned starting his own sign shop, he had the simple philosophy to sell a quality product at a reasonable price while providing personalized customer service.

Throughout the years, advances in technology have improved signage methodologies. Affordable Signs & Banners has grown right along with these changes.  After an initial start in his basement using a single vinyl plotter, Ken has built the company from a small two man shop into a multifaceted business offering a vast array of signage products. Affordable Signs & Banners currently operates out of a modern, 5,000 square foot facility utilizing several state of the art, large format, digital printers.

Today, Ken still runs the shop but now employs a group of talented signage experts dedicated to his original business philosophy. It is for this reason that most of Affordable Signs & Banners’ customers keep coming back year after year.
