Our Story


Signs of Our Beginnings

Signarama takes pride in being a strong positive force in the communities in which we operate.

Signarama was founded in 1986 by Ray and Roy Titus in Farmingdale, New York. Since then, Signarama has been a prominent force in the sign industry, building a reputation for innovation, exemplary support and high quality products and services for business owners around the world. Even amidst all of the growth, our franchise locations are not so far removed from our original ideals and principals; we help to reinforce our core concepts and keep all of our stores moving forward.

The First Sign

After the success of that first store in Farmingdale, New York. Father and son decided to open a second location in North Palm Beach, Florida. In 1987, Signarama began franchising. Today Ray Titus still holds the position of CEO, and one of his very first employees, Jim Tatum, is the company’s president.

Continued Success

Signarama was named the #1 sign franchise and ranked #74 on the Franchise 500 list by Entrepreneur Magazine. We are proud of this distinction, and intend to keep our place as the sign industry leader by continuing to offer our customers superior, cutting-edge products and services. With the sign industry now being estimated at $55 billion, and new businesses opening up every day, Signarama is strategically positioned for continued success.


Signarama Supports Veterans and Children

Signarama supports returning veterans by providing discounts based on years of service. We believe that investing in a Signarama franchise can assist returning veterans with re-acclimating to civilian life in a productive and fulfilling way. We provide training, financial assistance and support that can help veterans get started on a rewarding new career path.

Ray Titus has also started the United Franchise Group Foundation, which strives to provide children around the world with both educational and medical opportunities for a better quality of life.

The Future of Signarama

We continually invest in the future of Signarama by funding further research and development efforts. As technology advances, so too do signage needs and preferences. Customers can now opt for digital signage that is far superior to the backlit signs of old or even digital messenger displays that attract customers and deliver content using a futuristic projection that is completely customized. Digital messengers can be looped or interactive to give customers a one of a kind experience.
