For over fifty years, Archer Corporation, based in Canton, Ohio, has built its reputation in the custom sign manufacturing business on three principles: innovation, commitment to the customer, and hard work. Dwight Archer, the company’s founder, started out changing light bulbs in gas station signs. He launched Archer Corporation in 1969, the same year that the first moon landing was launched. Both events marked the beginning of something great.


Archer Sign Corporation provides turn-key sign services to customers throughout continental North America. These services include: sign design, code check, site survey, permitting, ARB & BZA meeting representation, engineering, manufacturing, installation, and repair.

It all begins with a sign design. Using the latest computer graphics technology, we can create new sign designs that fulfill your advertising goals while working with your existing signage program. Our expert project management staff has the experience to handle the intricacies of zoning and landlord negotiations, and can help secure necessary approvals when needed. After the creative stage, we move into sign manufacturing. All Archer signs carry full UL approval and comply with all NEC requirements. Both the materials and the construction of Archer signs meet the highest standards of quality. That commitment to quality is backed up by a complete warranty. The completed and inspected signs are then carefully prepared for shipping and installation.

As a new generation takes the helm of our company, we will continue to seek new ways to help customers build their businesses through the use of effective custom signs.

We will strive to build relationships with new customers while maintaining our valued partnerships with our established clients. Our goal is to provide a powerful advertising medium that will enable our clients to achieve ever-greater success.

Working with a nationwide network of sign installers, Archer coordinates signage installation and maintenance services throughout the United States. Wherever your business is located, you have the advantage of the Archer team behind you.
