Sign Manufacturing Day Sparks Interest in a Fascinating Industry

Sign Manufacturing Day is Oct. 2 and will offer interested students and others a peek at what can be a thrilling industry to work in and follow.

Mark McClellan, a Manufacturing Supervisor for Kieffer Starlite, said it’s a perfect way for the industry to present itself to people who may not know what goes into crafting a sign.

“Sign Manufacturing Day showcases the sign industry by taking you to many different locations and showing you, behind-the-scenes, how things are built, the time and effort that goes into design, engineering, CAD, layout and the fine craftsmanship that takes place to actually make the signs that you see when you’re driving around look as nice as what they do,” said McClellan, who also is the president elect of the Wisconsin Sign Industry.

Those things are designed to arouse and interest and passion for sign making, especially for graduating high school students who aren’t yet sure what their next step will be.

The sign industry accounts for $37.5 billion in U.S. sales each year, according to McClellan, and can make for an enjoyable career.

“A career in sign manufacturing is very rewarding,” he said. “I would strongly suggest considering a career in sign manufacturing. We’re always looking for young, motivated people that are willing to [work] alongside somebody that’s been doing it for a while and learn what they’ve learned about all the aspects of building signs. Sign manufacturing is a well-paying job … and can give you enjoyment year-to-year, because every day is something different.”
