GRAND OPENING

- In the beginning

Founder Neil Roeda, with his wife Jeneane, opened Roeda Signs in 1954 and initially took care of the sign needs of commercial businesses on Chicago’s south side.



Growing with New Building

- Beginning of growth

Roeda Signs rented barn space on corner of 162nd Street and State Street, in South Holland.  Neil hired many sign painters to grow his business in and around the south suburbs. In 1973, Roeda Signs builds its first new building, approximately 7500 sq.ft, less than a mile south on State Street.  Roeda Signs was becoming a leader in truck and vehicle graphics for the area.



Change is in the air

- The Digital Age

Neil Roeda’s sons, Rodney and Robert, joined the team and at the same time, the industry began to change. After two decades of hand lettering signs & posters, a new form of graphic production was coming about…. computerized vinyl cut letters. Instead of a labor-intensive art form of hand lettering, vinyl graphics were cut and applied to signs and vehicles,saving hours of time and labor costs. This was the first change of many to the sign industry.



New Adventures

- Screen Printing & Decals

Our oldest brother, Randy Roeda, joins the team and uses his selling talents to project a faster growth for Roeda Signs.  At the same time, screen printing decals and posters was a new production method for us that grew into a new division called ‘ScreenTech’, providing decals and displays for retail and industrial markets throughout the country. About this time, we built another addition to expand the screen print production.



A Decade of Growth

- Building the future

This was a decade of fast growth and expansion for Roeda Signs & ScreenTech. We were able to enter new markets quickly, through tradeshows & advertising, and supply a quality product to industries such as the Waste, Recycling, Construction, Portable Toilet and Manufacturing. We also started a local textile print division that printed many types of garments. In 2000, we built a 5000 sq.ft addition to further the screen print & digital production.



Bigger, Better

- New equipment for better service 

Roeda Signs & ScreenTech continued to expand its print markets, added new equipment, bigger presses, faster finishing equipment, a fleet of install trucks, hired more staff and built an addition to further the digital print production. Digital print is the fastest growing media that allowed us to print full color on anything, banners, rigid stock, displays, using solvent based inks, u.v. inks and eco friendly latex inks.



Honoring a Legacy

-  Sad goodbyes but saying hello to the future

The last seven years have been both happy and sad. In 2016 we lost a business partner and brother, Randy Roeda. We are still adjusting to this new reality, but have found both strength and a new commitment in the company. We keep pushing forward. Finding new markets, new relationships, new equipment and new growth. In 2017 we updated our logo and look.  We began a Film and Video division, developing commercials, web content for our clients.  So with signs, print and film, Roeda can provide many graphic and advertising solutions to your next project.
