Signarama Opens in Ankeny

The United Franchise Group announces the opening of a new Signarama franchise in Ankeny, Iowa, under the ownership of Steven Antes.

Ankeny, IA, December 07, 2013 - ( - Steven Antes wants to help local businesses grow. On December 10, Antes will host an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at his new Signarama at 1450 NE 69th St. in Ankeny. The store officially opened November 4. The company is the world’s largest sign franchise and full-service sign business.

Before becoming a Signarama franchisee, Antes was a project manager in the aerospace industry. “Discovering this franchise came at the perfect time for me because I was at a point in my life where I wanted more control over where I was going and what my future would look like,” he said. Now he is ready to help other businesses grow their brand.

For more than 25 years, Signarama has been serving communities with quality products and customer service in a constantly evolving market, offering a full range of comprehensive sign and graphic services, including impactful solutions from digital signs, vehicle wraps, banners, LED signs, to all traditional sign formats. Signarama’s tagline is “The Way to Grow Your Business.”

With brand recognition and local advertising becoming vitally important to small businesses, local entrepreneurs are increasingly relying on Signarama and its trained specialists who understand their unique advertising and marketing needs. Franchisees, like Antes offer personal attention to the business needs of other owners within their communities.

Digital signs and the use of LEDs instead of neon represent some of the latest innovations in the industry. The commercial viability of LED lighting continues to appreciate because of its lower cost, efficiency and environmental benefits, while the digital sign market is expected to reach $13.8 billion in 2017, according to a study by Global Industry Analysts. The U.S. represents the largest regional market in the study.

As a testament to how fast technology is advancing, another innovation creating considerable buzz is 3D printing, which allows for the creation of a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. NASA even used the technology recently to produce a rocket engine injector, which successfully passed a series of hot-fire trials.
