Akers Signs—Cutting Edge Technologies and Time Tested Know-How

Akers’ experience with sign making is a primary reason we are an industry leader in Northeast Ohio and beyond—including Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Dayton, and many more locations throughout the country. Though we’ve been a reliable producer of quality signage since 1972, we realize our industry is not what it was 20 years ago—or even 2 years ago. Understanding that an adaptable approach produces the best products for our customers, we place a strong importance to cutting edge technologies, time tested know-how and proper brand management.

Our talented team includes graphic designers from local University’s all the way to sign engineers with 25 years’ experience in the field. Our entire team will ensure your sign is produced within your budget and at the highest standard available in the industry.

*I’ve owned a small business for 20 years & always had minimal signage. This past year we relocated & I felt it was time to look into better signage so I contacted Akers Signs. I worked with Rick & Michelle for both indoor & outdoor signage & I would not hesitate to recommend Akers Signs to anyone. They were always there to give me ideas on what they thought would work best, they took care of all permits & they stayed within my budget. When we originally contacted them their production time wouldn’t have given us our signs in time for our Grand Opening, but they went out of their way to get our signs up & looking fantastic the day of our Grand Opening. Our sign has been one of our best investments & marketing tools & has brought us additional clients strictly because they have seen our sign.* - Danielle Wirick, MS, CSCS, FMSC
