"Thank you for your patience. It's been a pleasure working with you and your team on this sign. You get things done when you say you are and are infinitely patient with the many changes my tenants wanted. You are now my only source of signs and I'll refer anyone who needs a sign to you."
Thu Nguyen, Bluebonnet Plaza
Dallas Signs Manufacturing, a Watson Family
owned and managed corporation, has been building quality
signs and shipping them worldwide since 1979.
Most male Family members are licensed
electricians (two are Masters), each with over 30 years experience in every
phase of the business. One member holds both Master Sign Electrician and Master Electrician licenses.
Some competitors brag about their “combined experience.”
Several years ago we figured ours; it is well over 1000 years “combined
member of the Family has a University business degree. In fact 9 members of
our Team are degreed professionals. Because of our education and experience
Signs Manufacturing™ is a different kind of sign company.
principal owner of Dallas Signs Manufacturing formed several
successful businesses for large and small corporations and
was heavily involved in the marketing and advertising
necessary to make a business successful prior to starting
Dallas Signs Manufacturing with the Family.
He saw an opportunity to build a sign
company serving local and regional businesses that
understood marketing issues, a huge void even today, to
help customers become successful.
We understand what it takes to make a
business successful, so we develop "looks" and processes
that benefit our customers by giving them continuously
better, more productive signs at continuously lower
LetterLites™ and SpectraLites™ Channel Letters, Energy Star Signs™ and solar powered signs are current examples.
Underwriters Laboratories has evaluated our sister products PinLights™ and LetterLites™ and they have been approved for use in outdoor, damp and wet location signs.
UL Approval #E345252.
They are the only approved individual LED first-surface lighting products.
As the manufacturer we are very proud of this.
An example of our dedication to helping our customers succeed is this website. It IS the definitive source on signage information, ranked by Alexa® in the top 0.05% of ALL websites in the world, the top 0.01% in the USA! Not bad for a sign company serving North Texas. (We placed the website online in 1999, and have been improving it ever since.)
Dallas Signs Manufacturing has always been a
leader in the development of new technologies for the sign

Our family's manufacturing, electrical, electronic,
computer programming, and IT backgrounds often prove
invaluable to our customers, particularly those with or
desiring Electronic-Message-Centers. We can write/modify computer programs
in many languages. We installed our first message center (an incandescent time & temperature) in 1987; we manufactured and installed our first electronic digital LED sign in 1990.
The people at Dallas Signs Manufacturing are

automated channel letter production facility IN THE WORLD.

- Maurice Feldman, Pine Creek Cleaners
The Importance of 30+ Years in the Sign Business
Why is it important to you that Dallas Signs Manufacturing has been in business under consistent management for 30+ years?
Over the many years we made mistakes, and had to correct them. We heard about and observed a lot of mistakes made by others, and learned from them.
Very importantly, because of the Family's educational, technical, and electrical backgrounds, we tested and evaluated thousands of metals, sign components, plastics, and coatings, and selected the best to use in making specific signs that will look better, last longer, and use less energy. This website explains in detail the results of this testing.
We also selected the best, most accurate, construction techniques and equipment. We even helped invent newer, more accurate ones.
Do you want your sign made by someone who learned from 30+ years of making signs, or from someone who still has to learn?
Please visit our four-building manufacturing campus (Two sets of joined buildings.) (2017
Our modern 1.2 acre (under roof)
production facility, with both high and low dock doors, is
located on a 3 acre concrete pad; the additional area
being used for parking and "clean" outside storage.
One-half acre is planted greenbelt.
If you are seriously considering buying from someone else we suggest that you also visit their location to observe if they can actually do what they say they can; or at least “Google” their address.
Our factory addresses are 4540, 4550, 4560, and
4610 Mint Way, Dallas, Texas 75236.
A lot of competitors who present themselves as manufacturers actually only buy and resell signs, working out of a house, office building, small warehouse, or storefront!
