Christine Mosher

Founder

Christine founded Sign Wizards in 1984. The idea to make signs for a living was inspired by her husband discovering the Gerber Signmaker vinyl cutting machine. It had the capability to cut lettering and graphics as small as 1/4” and as large as 12” in many different colors that could be applied to windows, automobiles, trucks and almost any other smooth surface.

Her first significant sales call was to Nordstroms. Nordstroms silkscreened lettering and graphics on their display window at their downtown Portland store. She met with their head of displays in Portland and within weeks was selling them lettering and graphics for all of their stores on the west coast.

In their first year of business Sign Wizards was supplying display lettering and graphics to Nordstrom, Meier & Frank, Imagnin and other large retail businesses, even going so far as flying to San Francisco to install the graphics on windows and displays for them.

Sign Wizards first location was on NE Broadway. Soon they had several employees with Christine being the main sales person. Christines ability to connect with professional people, designers, architects and contractors has fueled Sign Wizards growth and reputation over the years. Sign Wizards never turns down a job and always gets the job done on time and on budget. This has been Christines’ mantra over the years and still stands today.

Christine moved Sign Wizards to the current location in 1989, purchased the building in 2007 and is a member of the Central Eastside Industrial Council. She has been honored over the years for her standing in the construction community and is known for her honesty and integrity, qualities that are ingrained in the Sign Wizards way of doing business.
