Signarama takes pride in being a strong positive force in the communities in which we operate. Signarama was founded in 1986 in Farmingdale, New York. The brand was introduced to Southern Africa in 2000 with the first franchise opening in Cape Town. Since then the brand has experienced growth every year since its’ inception. This growth has seen Signarama become the prominent force in the local sign industry, building a reputation for innovation, exemplary support, and high-quality products and services for business owners across Southern Africa. Despite this incredible track record of success, our franchise locations are not far removed from our original ideals and principals; we help to reinforce our core concepts and keep all of our stores moving forward. Ultimately, we have one customer, our Franchisees – when they are successful we are.
