My name is Shawn Highfield, I started Signs of Integrity in May of 2007 with the desire to have control over the product that left my shop and the level of service the customer receives.
I started in the sign business in April of 1992 at a family owned sign shop in Springfield, Ohio, my home town. I had just graduated from college with an Associates Degree in Commercial Art and thought I was going to take the advertising world by storm. I had no idea what the sign business was all about or what I was getting myself into. It was love at first site. I was helping businesses create opportunities for themselves through creative means. I had always been creative and loved to see the finished product and now I was doing just that for businesses. I knew quickly that this was my passion and something I wanted to make a lifelong career of.
I began as an entry level production person, doing the basics of signmaking. I quickly caught on and before I new it I was promoted to Production Manager. I managed the workflow and training of new employees. I also began doing design work and screenprinting. I soon became lead designer and began to do some estimating of new projects. After 6 and 1/2 years, getting married and moving to Columbus, the last 3 1/2 year commuting, I took a position at a franchise sign shop in Worthington. I spent over 11 years there running the shop and doing sales. I developed a great relationship with the owner and learned a tremendous amount about running a business. When he sold the business in 2006 I decided it was time to finally venture out on my own. So here I am. I believe my experience and knowledge over 18 years in the business allows me to be the best resource for my clients and helps me provide a positive experience for them when making buying decisions regarding signage. There isn't much I haven't done, from consulting, to designing, to producing and installing, I have experienced all facets. I would love the opportunity to work for you and provide you with the service and products you desire. Let me be your "Signguy", you won't be disappointed.
