FASTSIGNS Celebrates Sign Manufacturing Day 2020 With Virtual Initiative

Author: Leah Edwards

FASTSIGNS International Inc. will be celebrating Sign Manufacturing Day virtually during an unprecedented year. In partnership with the National Association of Manufacturers’ Manufacturing Day, the International Sign Association promotes Sign Manufacturing Day every first Friday of October.

To honor the day, FASTSIGNS International will be streaming and sharing videos of a tour from the FASTSIGNS International office on October 2 with subsequent videos to be posted throughout the entire month of October to encourage excitement and interest in the future of the sign industry.

In addition, FASTSIGNS franchisees across the US and Canada have been encouraged to share and post videos on October 2 that exhibit their centers and share with students and the community the vast capabilities at FASTSIGNS. During the recent year, the need for signs and graphics has proven to be increasingly relevant. Whether through retail businesses, restaurants or hospitality companies, the need to inform, direct and sell has established sign manufacturers as an essential business within their communities.

“We are thrilled to once again celebrate Sign Manufacturing Day. As we’ve experienced this year, the signage industry is an essential player in a world focused on keeping communities safe, healthy and informed,” said Catherine Monson, CEO at FASTSIGNS International, Inc. and Chair of the International Franchising Association. “We look forward to using this day to ignite a spark in the next generation of sign manufacturers by sharing the vast opportunities that are available to them with a career in this industry.”
