Open house festivities
Classic Sign Services was founded on April 18, 2001. Since then, the company has grown and expanded to a new location, and recently celebrated 20 years in business! To commemorate the special occasion, an open house event was held on Friday, May 14, 2021.
The open house featured tours, photo opportunities, giveaways, ribbon cuttings, appetizers, and good company. Each station throughout the shop contained work samples, freebies, and more. A team member was placed at every station, ready to answer questions and provide tours to guests.
Scattered throughout the building were also hors d’oeuvres, provided by Trigg Banquet Center in O’Fallon, Missouri. The candied bacon was a hit with the guests!
Ribbon cutting ceremonies took place, courtesy of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce and O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce & Industries. Classic Sign Services moved into the new building, located at 125 N Service Rd in St. Peters, in December 2019. What better day to cut the ribbon than during the 20th anniversary open house?
After the ribbon cuttings, it was time for speeches. Owner Bill Brink was first up, and thanked everyone for coming. It was a tear-jerking speech, and everyone felt the emotion.
The next speech was given by the Mayor of St. Peters, Len Pagano. He and Bill have been friends for nearly thirty years. Len had many positive things to say about Bill and Classic Signs.
The third and final speech was presented by Scott Tate, President & CEO of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce, of which Bill has been a member for twenty years.
After the speeches, guests were encouraged to sign the ribbons from the ceremonies, and tours resumed. Those in attendance could stop by each piece of equipment to learn about its capabilities (and grab a snack while there)!
The biggest hit of the evening (besides the candied bacon) was the DTG printing station! Guests could send a photo of their choice via email to our printing specialist and receive a t-shirt within two minutes. Check out the shirt Mayor Pagano received!
