Client satisfaction goal of

A top quality - state of the art sign shop is bringing business to Greenwood from across the continent.

Owner Cornel Hanson

One of Greenwood’s newest businesses——is technologically up-to-date, right down to using their website address as their company name. is a tech-savvy sign shop that relocated to Greenwood from Kelowna last fall. They offer wide-format printing and laminating with top-of-the-line equipment.

“Whether your needs are digital imagery, dimensional product, illuminated signage or custom manufactured art projects, we work with you to guide your ideas to quality, professional finished product,” says their website. also uses the Internet to serve their customers and expand their market. They have shipped high quality, unique specialty signage across North America and to a half dozen countries overseas.

Perhaps the best way to fully grasp the range of signage options that exists today is to visit online. The galleries of their work often help customers decide what type of sign they would like; that is a great place to start when dealing with a shop that offers so many options.

Owner Cornel Hanson has been in the business for 17 years, and during that time has developed valuable associations with several commercial artists. These collaborations have brought new products to market such as edge-lit and halo-lit accent signs that pop.

A stunning example of a halo-lit canvas hangs on the wall of the shop. The four-foot print of a cat is shown with eye-catching effect when illuminated with LEDs creating a coloured halo effect around the print. You can see it online, just follow the printing/canvas prints link.

“We have built our business based on our firm belief that customer service and satisfaction are the number one priority,” says the website. “What we do is more than just work….it is a lifestyle and a passion and we take pride in our workmanship.”

As for prices, Cornel said the product line is so varied that he has to look at each job individually. But has the experience and range of product that it can certainly try to accommodate your price point. For example, the dimensional foam signage that graces the new assay office façade at the A-frame was done with dimensional foam. “It is a nice way to go upscale a bit with a sign that jumps out at you without spending a lot more,” Cornel said.

Cornel is a community-oriented fellow too. He was vice president of the Chamber of Commerce in Keremeos, sat on the tourism advisory committee and supported local charities, and has done much for the kids.

But the Okanagan-Similkameen’s loss is the Boundary’s gain. Cornel laughs when he says, “We escaped from Kelowna. We ran away from Kelowna to get here.”

He appreciates the slower pace. “I like to think I came here to die. Not going anywhere. My wife Cathy and I just love it here. We are just really happy to be here. And we are here for the duration.”

He invites people to call ahead and arrange a time to drop by and see what he does in the shop as it continues to evolve.

“We are not done yet but we are getting there.”
