Signs First History

     SIGNS FIRST franchises computerized sign stores specializing in producing digital and vinyl sign-age of all types, manufactured in one day utilizing computer-precision cut or printed lettering and logos under the mark SIGNS FIRST. These services appeal to retail, commercial and professional businesses needing quick service and quality signs from convenient locations. Your competitors include other sign stores offering rapid service as well as traditional sign businesses which are not conveniently located and require significantly more time to produce such signs. SIGNS FIRST has been offering franchises since June 1989.

James "Mack" Warr

     James “Mack” Warr - Mack Warr has been SIGNS FIRST’s sole shareholder and President since its incorporation in June 1978. Prior to 1978, Mr. Warr owned and managed SIGNS FIRST’s predecessor, a traditional commercial sign business as a sole proprietorship. Mr. Warr developed the distinctive concept of the SIGNS FIRST franchise prior to its implementation in October l987. The SIGNS FIRST concept of manufacturing signs in one day was then perfected at three company-owned SIGNS FIRST locations.
