CHARLES – Ultimate Graphic & Sign, LLC opened its doors at 910 N. Saginaw St. in St. Charles in 2014. The company has evolved a great deal since its beginnings in Greg and Michelle Armstrong’s basement in 2008.

“It started as a hobby. It wasn’t started as a business,” owner Greg Armstrong told the Citizen. He was initially designing and producing stickers for fun, under the name of Sticker Pirates. But when people started requesting the designs on t-shirts, it was then he realized this was a good way to start a business.

They are capable of creating new designs; as well as mimicking other designs, old and new.

The business has grown substantially, especially since they opened the new location in St. Charles, just south of McDonald’s Restaurant.

Their services have expanded to include: screen printed apparel and promotional items; screen print and stencil work on metal; non-lighted signs; printed banners and posters (even extra large ones); embroidery; yard signs for political/real estate and other uses; dye sublimation on apparel and some promotional products; team apparel; removable wall graphics; magnetic signs large and small; vehicle wraps for major marketing promotions; and the product that started it all, stickers.

“Moving here was the right decision. We’re definitely growing,” Greg said.

Ultimate Graphic & Sign is open Monday through Friday, and Saturday. For more information about Ultimate Graphic & Sign, visit the shop, or call (989) 865-5200. Please see the Ultimate Graphic & Sign corrected Ham Giveaway Coupon on page 13. Clip and deposit at store by noon Tuesday, April 15.
