Braun Bleamer has been in the sign business for over 20 years. Art came naturally to him as a kid, but fine art didn’t really appeal to him. Commercial art and race car graphics, though, were a different story. During high school at the local vo-tech, he got an opportunity to make signs. Then it was on to lettering race cars, and then the sign business. By 2003, Jet Signs was a full-time project.
Braun works from a 2400 sq. ft. shop in an area of small towns in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania. His clients include the local ski resort and small businesses. He does trucks, flat signs, 3-D projects “and everything in between”, including a lot of logo design.
“Logo design brings many people here,” Braun says. “I love doing logos and creating an image for a business. You often have to read the client’s mind, because most have some idea of how their logo should look. Usually I can figure that out and do something they like right off the bat.
