About Adams Signs & Graphics

Upon his return from service in World War II, John Adams founded the Adams Electric Sign Company. He began painting signs in his garage and soon moved to downtown Massillon, OH. While at that location, John pioneered the fabrication of plastic sign faces, and was the first to offer complete custom signage to northeast Ohio. IAdam Signs buildingn 1982, the company built a new, 70,000 sq. ft. facility in the Massillon Industrial Park. Nearly 90% of our space is devoted to sign manufacturing. Following founder John Adams’ death in 1990, the business was sold to its current ownership. We’ve expanded to include regional office locations in Cleveland, Akron, Columbus, Chicago and Pittsburgh. Still family-owned and still headquartered in Massillon, we have a fleet of company-owned installation and service vehicles, and a national network of sign installation professionals. Our clients enjoy the services of a dedicated account manager to manage each project, big and small! Our motto is “prompt service and competitive pricing to the clients’ satisfaction.” learn more about Adam Signs

This custom neon sign was made as a gift for Canadian rapper and superstar, Drake. 

In honor of his 5th studio album, Scorpion, we created a five foot tall, four foot wide free standing neon sign, with a Plexiglas cover for safety. The sign was presented to Drake during his Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour in 2018. Sign shipped in a custom made display case for protection and ease of handling for shipment elsewhere.

Corporate office of Bachtel Excavating, Massillon, OH

We at Adams signs were asked to team up with Bachtel Excavating and design an interior sign that would set them apart from the competition.  This sign in clear acrylic, stand off style was the chosen winner from many designs presented.   This sign certainly is the eye catcher in the main lobby at head quarters of Bachtel. It’s the perfect storm of classy and functional all packed into one sign.   Adams Signs is a proud affiliate to Bachtel Excavating.


Perry High School – Massillon, OH

Perry Township Schools upgraded their old luminescent lit cabinet sign to a full color message center.

We supply a large number of school systems, and school signage is one of our specialties. If your school system is looking for a retrofit or electronic upgrade, allow us to streamline the signage planning and implementation process for your school buildings.

Adams Signs is the leading manufacturer of signage products in the State of Ohio. Our website contains a number of great examples of products and services we regularly provide. The service access for this particular sign is more than 80′ above grade. We can provide a wide range of customized signage products to meet your specific site needs.


Adams Signs is very proud of our work for Spitzer Automotive in Pittsburgh, PA. We not only consider these folks to be customers, but also friends. After much research, Spitzer contracted us because we had the knowledge and experience to meet their signage needs. Spitzer Automotive is located on a major highway, and is highly visible to motorists and pedestrians alike. In addition, the dealership generates significant walk-in traffic. High tension overhead power lines posed a significant challenge, but our professional installation team worked with the local electric utility to shut off the power during an after-hours installation.  By working after-hours, we were able to complete the signage installation without disrupting traffic around the dealership, or interfering with the dealership’s sales and service work. The dealership chose a Daktronics electronic message center. This product maximizes visibility, even from a significant distance.  The message center uses the latest, cloud-based software, which enables the dealership to change its messages quickly and simply.  Further, Daktronics is known worldwide for its high reliability! Make us your first choice for all of your signage needs! Thank you for you patronage.

I am very pleased with both the design and quality of the sign provided by Adams Signs. You came up with the perfect sign for our business. The 3-dimensional look you created depicts what we do without actually saying it. We have received many compliments on it since you installed it.

Your artistic design and attention to detail is greatly appreciated.

Vanity Chic

A new marketing campaign

It’s really exciting to be a part of the marketing campaign for a brand new company. When Vanity Chic called, I jumped at the opportunity. The owner wanted an elegant sign that communicated the salon’s focus on providing a luxurious, first-class experience. Our in-house designers created a distinguished, innovative sign that appeals to the salon’s target clientele.

Adams Signs

We are absolutely thrilled with our new sign! It was a pleasure working with Adams Signs from the initial design all the way through the installation process. The sign looks amazing, and the LED channel letters are super bright and energy efficient. In fact, I questioned one of the installers when he told me it would only draw around 4 amps. I put a clamp meter on the line, and confirmed that it only drew 4 amps! I highly recommend Adams Signs; they are top-notch professionals, and affordable, too!

HobbyTown, Mansfield, Ohio





Our original sign, not made by Adams Signs, looked horrible. The graphics were peeling off and it looked awful. We called around for estimates to have it fixed. Rick came out quickly and had a great estimate for us. He also recommended doing the sign a different way so the weather would not destroy it as quickly. Once we decided to go ahead with the new sign, everything went smoothly. We are very happy with the new sign. Adams Signs did a great job and we will definitely use them in the future.
