Things to keep in mind:

  1. Know the Convention Expo Services.
  2. Check to see if your booth package comes with carpet, tables and chairs. If not, be sure to arrange to rent these items, if necessary. You can check with the Convention Expo Services first.
  3. When you check-in at the Convention Center, be prepared to give your company name and booth number. You might also be asked for your ID.
  4. After you check-in, it’s a good idea to go find your booth and check if your palette is there.
  5. Start setting up your booth as soon as possible to give you ample time to spare in case something goes wrong or to get prepared for show day.

San Diego Sign Company—Harrisburg, PA Division Celebrates 5 years!

We’re celebrating an anniversary! It’s been five years now since we first opened our second facility located in Harrisburg, PA. Business has been better than ever!
If you’re thinking that San Diego Sign Company provides signage needs to only half of the country, think again! That’s right, for five years now we’ve been able to provide not only fast turnaround production times, but also 1- or 2-day UPS Ground ship times for the majority of our East coast and Midwest customers—from Maine to Florida to Chicago, IL!
As word keeps spreading across the country, our Pennsylvania warehouse is picking up speed fast and growing tremendously. While we have been adding more equipment and talent over the last few years to keep up, we have realized that we need to expand the space as well. So, we’ve started expanding!
Our Pennsylvania warehouse, which is currently 23,000 sq. ft., will acquire 14,000 sq. ft. more, totaling 37,000 sq.ft.! The added space will allow us to better meet your needs by holdi…

New Popular Big Displays. Filling the 30 Foot Gap.

Sometimes you need a large display, but perhaps it’s not large enough to keep its portability, its easy setup and its light weight. You have to go custom. You don’t wanna go custom.

But what if I told you we have a super easy fabric pop up display that is 30 feet wide?

And it fits into one, I repeat, 1 travel bag! It’s only 65 lbs. Geometric accordion-like frame has plastic hooks attached that clip together to secure. Fabric comes attached, (though we recommend you remove graphic for long-term storage), and stays put with Velcro. Convenient in travel mode, in setup mode, and in takedown-storage mode—fits into a small space!

Introducing the 30 ft RPL Stretch Fabric Pop Up Display!
Let’s take a closer look at some pictures and setup video below!







Here is the frame expanded completely. Very simple.








The Dish on Pizza

I love pizza. I love how each pizza shop has their own flavor. It’s like you have to go to that pizza shop because you’re craving that taste. Most of all, I love tossing pizza dough. I learned on the job. My late teens to early twenties were spent making and delivering pizza. I was first hired as a driver, and the first time I ever knocked on a stranger’s door was, well, strange, but I got used to it real quick after I got my first tip. At 18 years old, making tips was freakin’ awesome.
Work was the best: I’d take phone orders, “decorate” and cut pizzas, and plan out my driving route, ready to make that pocket skrill. Most pizza driver’s get into the business for tips, but also for the music. You can’t go a full eight-hour shift without personally-selected music ready to play in your car. Plus, there’s free pizza to eat; mostly it’s hours-old-mistake pizza, but sometimes it’s fresh-of-your-choosing pizza. Where we lose it and quit? It’s when we grow tired of hearing the cacophony of p…
