Checker Signs started in November 1985 in the basement of Merle’s first home and quickly relocated to another home based site, in a garage with an office. In 1992, another move was required to the current location in Morden, Manitoba. The move to our current site located at 91-9th Street South in Morden occurred in 2017. The need for additional space and location out of the industrial sector as direct service to the public was becoming a main focus of our business. The recent expansion into memorials with Block Stoneworks was demanding more of a street presence as well.
Business growth has been in the area of technology, as we embraced the move to the large digital print platform. At the same time, a large portion of the business has been the establishment and maintenance with craftsmanship of hands-on skills and abilities to produce sandblasted wood, welded and concrete products.
We provide direct service to the public as well as meeting corporate and small business graphic imaging needs, using a variety of mediums to create unique products. Our customers frequently come in with an idea and explore the options that can provide them with the short or long term solution for their home or business. Customers experience the excitement of exceptional innovations from conception to installation.
Checker Signs has a strong relationship with a number of local industries that provides products that contribute to their business development and expansion. We also enjoy working with project managers, marketing specialists, and designers when new homes/businesses require products.
Our Team and Future
The Checker Signs staff looks forward to the future of the business by constantly re-investing in product and skill development to keep the excitement alive. We are a creative “hands-on” team who enjoy our work and working with each other.
