Your signage can have a significant effect on how your business grows; it helps drive customers to your location, build brand awareness and more. At Signarama—Kearny Mesa, a Certified Small Business Enterprise, we understand that, and since 1999, we've been providing a unique combination of quality and service that's earned us tremendous customer loyalty. While our product is signage, we really sell solutions, and we enjoy consulting on everything from how many signs are necessary and where they should be placed to what design elements will get the best response.

Our team helps you get messages out by creating innovative designs and producing them in vinyl, large format digital print, screen print and other state-of-the-art techniques. We’re especially adept at thinking outside the box, a skill we showcased during Comic- Con 2010 to help transform a 15,000-square-foot building for Cartoon Network. Other clients that appreciate our inventiveness include Westfield Malls, Cushman & Wakefield Property Management, Northrop Grumman and Stu Seagull Studios.

Owner Steve Mader has more than 35 years of retail experience, including 25 years as owner/general manager of a large Midwest glass business. In addition to having a strong customer-focused background, he has a great work ethic, something he requires in all staff members.

There are more than 850 Signarama stores worldwide, but not many of them have been honored more than the Kearny Mesa location, which was elected to the Signarama Hall of Fame in 2005 and has also received honors for overall achievement, mentoring, quality, store appearance and customer service.
