Worldwide Graphics & Sign is growing into its new name with an ever expanding base of international clients in addition to its local and regional business and non-profit customers.
“The name change has come about due to many factors, but the main reason being that we are doing more and more business with regional, national, and international customers and needed to change our name to reflect that in some way. On top of that, being one of the largest one stop companies around, it was important that people knew we produced graphics and signs, not just signs,” the company’s recently revamped web site explains.
Company founder Christian Beebe started Worldwide Graphics in 2006, following a career in marketing and advertising. Among the ways the company sets itself apart is its focus on design and service, he said.
“We have in-house designers and install crews. We’re known for really helping people, and it’s a huge part of our mantra: top service, top quality and competitive pricing,” he said.
Among the company’s newest products are its biodegradable and recyclable signage which was developed along with Worldwide Graphic material manufactures. The new product line WorldGreen includes a dozen materials including fabrics, wall coverings, photo papers and indoor and outdoor boards.
“The idea is all of them look and act the same (as traditional signage), the difference is when they hit the landfill,” Beebe said. WorldGreen products breakdown in one to five years, while traditional products can take decades.
In three years the company has grown from two employees to seven, and soon will be moving the company into a larger space somewhere in Over-the-Rhine, Beebe said.
