What's Behind Our Company?

Map to Southern California Office


Since our conception in 1983, we've tried to service you, the customer, to the best of our ability. We realize you have many choices where to get your equipment and supplies from, and we strive for a level of service that keeps you coming back again and again. Our family run business continues to grow with the help of customers like you.

   Before we started Ordway Sign Supply, we were also signmakers. Frustrated by not having a local supplier in the immediate area, we opened the supply business trying to fill this void, figuring other local signmakers had the same problem. The closest supplier at the time was in downtown L.A., and if you ever traveled L.A.'s freeways, you know what a mess it can be sometimes. The San Fernando Valley, and Van Nuys in general is about 25 miles north of L.A.  

   Along with Paints, Brushes, Sign Blanks, and the such, we started producing vinyl lettering for the trade. Like just about everyone else, we put an old Gerber 4B to hell and back. From there we bought an Anagraph and then on to selling complete systems. Outlasting our dealerships with Technoarts, and HTD (they both went belly up), putting plotters and software together was a natural evolution. The vinyl revolution and technology has changed the way signs were made, and we've changed along with it. Now, digital printing is opening new doors and seems to be the next revolution. We continue to be committed to the keeping the the forefront of technology, and offering you new ways to be more profitable in this exciting and ever changing world.

I hope you enjoy my website, and find it useful. It was produced entirely in-house. Many long nights were put into it. (My wife can tell you about the affair that she thinks I have with my computer). Thanks for your support...
