Paducah, Kentucky, sits at the juncture of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers, about 40 miles before the Ohio empties into the Mississippi River. It’s a growing historic river town of about 25,000 with a total of 65,000 including the surrounding county. It’s also home to secondgeneration sign maker Rob Estes.
Well-known for his mural and wall work, Rob turns out a variety of custom sign work from his one-man shop. Both his father and uncle were in the sign business, and he worked in his dad’s shop from 1984 until enlisting in the US Navy in 1989. He then opened Brushstroke Signs in 1995. SignCraft spoke with him between finishing up a large engraved plaque and planning a wall lettering project—and hoping the mid-November weather would cooperate.
