Learn More About Our Company
Frank Walsh is the founder of Frank's Signs. Following his military service in World War II, Frank studied sign making at the New Hampshire Technical School, where he learned about the finer aspects of hand lettering and screen printing. He put his skills to use at Walsh Signs, a business owned by his brother located on Manchester's west side. Frank worked at Walsh Signs until 1965, when his brother's poor health forced the business to close.
On July 27, 1965, Frank opened the doors to Frank's Signs. Originally located on Hanover Street in Manchester, the shop moved shortly after to 287 Lincoln Street. In 1976, the shop moved to its current location at 591 Lincoln Street.
Frank's son, Jim, joined the business in 1975 and learned how to make signs from his father and older brother, Dennis, whom also worked at Frank's Signs. Jim excelled in the sign industry and took ownership of the business in 1986.
In 1987, the shop made some dramatic changes. A second floor was added, doubling the square footage, while also making a large investment, including adding state-of-the-art computer equipment.
Frank's Signs has thrived over the more than 50 years it's been in business. We continue to meet the needs of our customers, creating one-of-a-kind signs to help set their businesses apart from others.
