About Us

Welcome to Essential Signs, a family owned business, operated since 1990 by qualified signwriter, Nick Marandola.

Nick completed his apprenticeship in 1987 and immediately set about gaining valuable experience in the sign trade. He learned and applied the skills of traditional signwriting, such as gold leaf lettering, pinstriping, graphic design, murals, hand crafted lettering, shop front signs, vehicle signage, banners, and more. Despite this extensive experience, Nick craved a greater knowledge of his field, and so chose to work for several larger companies in order to further improve upon his skills.

In 1989, Nick decided he was ready to launch his own business, Brush Art Signs, and for the next 15 years, he served both small and large organizations under this name. Due to rapid changes in the industry, and his determination to stay at the forefront, Nick decided to invest in his business by training in graphic design. Now well versed in programs such as IIIustrator,  Photoshop, Signlab, and Flexi Sign, he was able to offer clients a wider range of graphic services. Reflecting the new direction of the business, Nick decided a name change was in order, Essential Signs was born.

Nick has witnessed the signage industry evolve from one of traditionally brush skills, to vinyl cut lettering and graphics, to its present focus on large format digital printing, and he will continue to evolve with it. Essential Signs continues to deliver the highest quality product, service, and technical expertise to our customers, by working alongside them to achieve the best possible results for their specific needs.

Essential Signs believes that trust, commitment, and special attention to our customers' needs are what set us apart. You know what you want to say, let us help you say it.
