Bill Diaz started Diaz Sign Art in 1979. Originally the name of the business was Diaz Painting and Decorating. The emphasis of the business in those first couple years was painting and wallpapering. Sign painting played a minor role. However, the increase in demand for hand lettered signs coupled with Bill’s artistic background, soon led to the restructuring of the business with an emphasis on creating custom, hand-crafted signs, murals, pinstriping and designs. And so Diaz Sign Art was born.
Diaz Sign Art has enjoyed many talented craftsmen over the years, but the Diaz Sign Art today is 100% family owned and operated. It began with Bill asking his wife Jane, who was teaching art at a local grade school, to come work with him instead. Their two sons, Ben and Joe, who would help around the shop as kids would later come back to work for Diaz Sign Art as adults. Each member of the family has their own specialty, which has really helped the company grow.
