About Us

Ultimately, everything we do at People Signs is about people. The customers we serve and the clients they serve.

We Put People First!TM

Our very name recognizes that the need for signs begins with people. Primarily, signs identify and direct – getting seekers or travelers from one place to the next. They pinpoint locations, designate departments and name names. They lead people. Redirect them. Stop them. Announce them. Caution them. Welcome them. Entice them. And sometimes, they frustrate them.

That’s where we come in. With decades of experience in interior and exterior architectural signage and wayfinding, the community of sign professionals at People Signs provides the knowledge and know-how to produce impactful signage from a simple nameplate to campus wide, full-scale programs. All aimed at communicating clearly
with people.

Who We Are

People Signs is a privately owned, national company, located in southeastern Pennsylvania with convenient access to major east coast markets and international transportation hubs.

Owner-President Charles J. Kelly Jr. is a third generation sign professional with family roots in the U.S. sign industry, which extend back to the 1930s. His own nearly 30 years in the business and his working knowledge of the industry provide access to resources and professional talent that contribute to the success of People Signs.

Several of our employees have been with the company for over 25 years, some of whom have been joined in the business by their own family members. They are all part of a dedicated staff that is knowledgeable, courteous and efficient. And, when you call during business hours, almost without exception, you will be greeted by a live voice, not an electronic message – another way in which “We put people first!”TM

Where We Are

You’ll find People Signs architectural signage in government office buildings in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States, as well as on military bases and in military hospitals around the nation and across the world. We educate visitors on university campuses; soothe the concerns of people looking for ill relatives or emergency services in healthcare complexes; and negotiate wayfinding in corporate facilities.

Our ADA signs facilitate movement and access for people with disabilities; identify family restrooms for parents traveling with children; and guide people to safety in emergencies. In each case, we anticipate need, avoid complications and provide clarity … for people!

What We Are

We are a full service sign company that sells our products, services and experience through a network of sales professionals. Working in tandem with these sales reps, we collaborate with architects, designers, specifiers, contractors, clients, facilities managers, and other end-users or stakeholders who require signage for their properties and for the successful performance of their business.

Depending upon the nature of the project and the needs of the customer, our service may include all or some of the following: bid review and pricing, site review and recommendations, sign schedule, project plan and management, manufacture and installation of standard or custom signage, and final project report and standards manual.

Project Management

Working with People Signs, you will have access to a full-service, knowledgeable staff capable of handling all aspects of visual communications projects. We are respected for our quality workmanship, outstanding customer service, timely fulfillment of orders/projects, and attention to detail.

Where required, all of our signs are compatible with and meet the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), HIPPA, NFPA, and ANSI and can be adapted to meet local government regulations. Our sign products are composed of aluminum and plastic elements which are recyclable and many offer paper insert options, making them a desirable green solution for sustainability requirements and minimal maintenance demands.

Committed to teamwork, People Signs cooperates in lockstep with all stakeholders with whom we collaborate on signage and visual communications projects. We time our work in concert with their start or completion schedules.

We are adept at handling foreign language requirements and working within government directed processes. We are available to communicate as necessitated by diverse time-zone projects. We pride ourselves on our logistic management capabilities and our prompt turnaround when asked to assist customers with a time-sensitive challenge.
