I decided to open my business, Carlson's Custom Signs, in April of 2015. It all started with a baby sign I made as a gift for a close friend. I was looking for the perfect gift, something special and unique yet personal. I was having trouble finding that perfect gift so I set to work and made my first baby sign. The sign was a hit - so much so that I started getting requests from friends to make more. Soon I branched out and started making family name signs, wedding signs, state and town signs - you name it, I was giving it a shot!
As the orders started to come in, I realized that I might be on to something. I decided it was time to start my own sign business! With an Art degree from Fordham University and four young children, I found that I could do what I love while taking care of my daughters. It can be challenging working from home but it's a set up that works well for me and my family. I love what I do and I love being my own boss (even though I can be tough on myself!). It's been almost two years and it's been an extremely interesting ride along the way - I learn something new every day.
I live along the coast of New Jersey and I am so thankful to be here! In my online store you'll see a large assortment of beach themed signs and a handful of New Jersey inspired pieces. I love doing custom work so if you don't see what you're looking for, please contact me and I will work with you to create the perfect keepsake or gift.
Thank you for visiting my store - I hope you find what you're looking for!
