Jim Oliver and his wife Linda purchased Albuquerque Sign Print located at 400 Juan Tabo NE from its founder on November 15, 1989. At this time the Oliver’s felt like the business had great potential – coupled with their business background and interests in computer aided graphics. After purchasing Albuquerque Sign Print, Jim took several graphics design classes at CNM to add to his expertise in how to use signs and graphics for communicating. Previous involvement in Human Relations and Business Management classes from Dale Carnegie gave Jim an edge in obtaining quality people and planning, organizing, and directing the new business venture. Following Jim’s instincts, the Albuquerque Sign Print online product catalog was published in 1998. By 1999 shopping cart abilities were added to the website. In 2005 Albuquerque Sign Print was relocated to it’s present location at 6010 Signal Ave. NE. The newly constructed building tripled the work area of the growing business. Keeping abreast of technology and new equipment has been very challenging and gratifying over the last decade. The last few years have provided Jim and his team with a new dedication to more contemporary goals. For the first time ever, Albuquerque Sign Print is reaching out to companies and people they can partner with, in order to achieve their goals.
We strive to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations, while creating a rewarding work environment for our employees.
Albuquerque Sign Print was founded in 1965 located near Juan Tabo & I-40 and was known as Albuquerque Screen Print. It was a sign shop in the true sense of the words, using the screen printing process to produce signs mostly for the real estate sales industry. The business was renamed in 1987 because the screen printing process had become synonymous with the garment industry instead of graphic signage. The first state of the art computer aided design and computer cut vinyl graphics system was in use by 1989. New graphic printing equipment and graphic ink dryers were brought on line in the early 2000’s. This new equipment enabled Albuquerque Sign Print to produce a much higher quality metal signs that are essential for the real estate sales industry. In 2005 the business was relocated to its present location at 6010 Signal Ave. NE. Shortly after the relocation to its modern, much larger location, we added a new high speed printer and UV dryer especially for producing political campaign signs in quantity and competitively priced. We have stayed abreast of technology in the last decade by adding several high speed, wide format digital printers. These printers have allowed us to produce photograph quality graphics for use on signs, banners, windows, magnetics, and of course the ever popular auto ‘wraps’. Along with our filled to capacity ready-made sign showroom (only place in the state that you purchase the sign you require right off the shelf). Albuquerque Sign Print’s strength is its versatility, having remained on the cutting edge and competitive all these years by offering screen printing, computer cut lettering, digital print graphics, sublimating, and engraving processes that allow us to ‘Meet or Exceed Our Customers Expectations’.
