ISA Sign Manufacturing Day Is October 6

Market your sign company and our industry to students this fall.




The International Sign Association (ISA; Alexandria, VA) is once again coordinating its annual Sign Manufacturing Day on Oct. 6, involving sign companies and students all over the US and Canada, according to an emailed statement from ISA.

Intended to both market the sign industry to young people and to initiate connections that may lead to jobs at sign companies for some of the students, “Sign MFG Day” involves sign companies hosting high school, college or other students at their signmaking facilities for a day, during which tours and demonstrations are offered to introduce and excite students about working in the sign industry in the future.

ISA hosted a webinar last year featuring past Sign MFG Day participants Matt Baker, co-owner/operator of Bakers’ Signs, and Bob Mattatall, founder of Mattatall Signs, who shared their experience and provided tips for a successful event. Click here to watch a recording of the webinar.

Signs of the Times supports Sign MFG Day as an excellent opportunity for sign companies to market themselves to young people. Shops looking for a way to attract students as future employees should consider participating. According to Bob Mattatall in the webinar, no company that has participated in the past has ever regretted it.
