While many sign business owners got their start doing commercial signs, Dennis Stanworth found his way into his sign business by doing design and production drawings for large electrical sign companies. After 20 years of doing designs and drawings for electrical signs, he opened Stanworth Signs, focusing on a market between large electrical signs and commercial work—storefront signs, dimensional letters, ADA signs, monument signs and channel letters.
He’s using his knowledge of sign fabrication and the help of a variety of wholesalers to serve his customers in the San Francisco Bay area. Just two years into the new shop, here’s what Dennis has to say about making it work.
