Creating business identification systems since 1947

Art Sign Company offers the highest quality custom signs on the market today. We have been in business, near downtown Fort Lauderdale in the Progresso area and under the same family ownership since 1947.  We have grown tremendously; with more than 55 employees and over 50,000 square feet of manufacturing space, we are always providing superior service and quality products to our customers. With more than seven decades of experience and commitment to excellence we have earned the reputation of being the best sign builders in the area well being known for our high-rise sign work.

We specialize in building beautiful monument signs, eye catching illuminated letters & logos for all your specific needs. We offer quality and reliable products you can count on.  In addition, our friendly and professional staff is here to answer any questions you may have about our company or our services.  Whether you need a sign repair service or an entirely new design, we have what you need at prices you can afford.  At Art Sign Company our goal is to provide you with courteous, expedient and professional service.

It all started when a talented young man named Chandler Grey Dillard doing show cards for USO Shows in the Navy while stationed in Hawaii. When he got out of the Navy, Chandler and two friends opened “Modern Art Sign Company” in Fort Lauderdale, FL.  Eventually, the two friends left the company and Mr. Dillard started making neon on he's own.  He changed the name to "Art Sign Company" as we know it today. 

After many years of hustling and building the company to support his family, Mr. Dillard taught the trade to his two sons, Joe and Dan. The two would regularly fabricate and install the creations of Art Sign Company. Eventually Dan would leave the company to pursue other avenues, but Joe helped run the company until Chandler Dillard passed away, at which time Joe Dillard took over the company.

It was in the 1980’s when the company really expanded, from a single building to a second right across the street that's five times the size of the original. Slowly over the years with more large corporate accounts, the company continued to grow. With the help of the third generation Dillard; daughter Shari in charge of operations, while Joe enjoys retirement and visits every day...old habits are hard to break!

In our current configuration we are housed in four buildings. We have two paint booths and one building dedicated to fabrication of large pylons, monument and cabinet signs. Our neon plant currently has a full-time tube bender with decades of experience. The second building houses our sales staff and graphics department. Another building houses our art production team & channel letter department. We also have a full-time mechanic with a dedicated workshop to support our ever-growing fleet of vehicles.

Here at Art Sign Co, Inc. we are a one stop shop for all your sign needs!

I have been using Art Sign Company for many years, during which time they have provided me with excellent sign designs, sign installations and sign permitting.  Art Sign Company quickly responds and has a good relationship with numerous city and county municipalities.


I can confidently recommend Art Sign Company as a solid, reliable vendor, and above the rest in their field.

I’m writing to let you know in all the years of working with fabricators, Typoe and I have never had such an easy experience installing work. You guys went above and beyond to make sure every level of detail was thought through making our experience a breeze. We could not be more happy with your team, the craftsmanship, and the overall experience we’ve had so far working with you guys.
