"Thank you for your patience. It's been a pleasure working with you and your team on this sign. You get things done when you say you are and are infinitely patient with the many changes my tenants wanted. You are now my only source of signs and I'll refer anyone who needs a sign to you."
Thu Nguyen, Bluebonnet Plaza
Signs Manufacturing™, a Watson Family
owned and managed corporation, has been building quality
signs and shipping them worldwide since 1979.
Signs Manufacturing™, as used in this website, refers equally or individually to Signs Manufacturing Corporation, Signs Manufacturing and Maintenance Corporation, or Sunburst LED Displays, LP.
Most male Family members are licensed
electricians (two are Masters), each with over 30 years experience in every
phase of the business. One member holds both Master Sign Electrician and Master Electrician licenses.
Every adult member of the Family has a University business degree. Our education and experience causes us to look at the sign business differently.
principal owner of Signs Manufacturing™ formed several
successful businesses for large and small corporations and
was heavily involved in the marketing and advertising
necessary to make a business successful prior to starting
Signs Manufacturing™ with the Family.
He saw an opportunity to build a sign
company serving local and regional businesses that
understood marketing issues, a huge void even today, to
help customers become successful.
We understand what it takes to make a
business successful, so we develop "looks" and processes
that benefit our customers by giving them continuously
better, more productive signs at continuously lower

The Importance of 30+ Years in the Sign Business
Why is it important to you that Signs Manufacturing™ has been in business under consistent management for 30+ years?
Over the many years we made mistakes, and had to correct them. We heard about and observed a lot of mistakes made by others, and learned from them.
Very importantly, because of the Family's educational, technical, and electrical backgrounds, we tested and evaluated thousands of metals, sign components, plastics, and coatings, and selected the best to use in making specific signs that will look better, last longer, and use less energy. This website explains in detail the results of this testing.
We also selected the best, most accurate, construction techniques and equipment. We even helped invent newer, more accurate ones.
Do you want your sign made by someone who learned from 30+ years of making signs, or from someone who still has to learn?
Products We've Introduced to Use on Signage
"All sign companies do the same thing!" Our customers say that other sign companies use this line a lot when asked to explain what they do differently to make their signs superior.
Through years of research we have introduced many quality products to use on signage. Most remain unused by other sign companies because they have no idea where to obtain them. Some of these products are:
Vacuum Ceramic Microsphere Coatings
Waterproof Whole-sign Interior Coatings to Protect Electronic Components and Wiring
Flame Suppression Coating Systems
Spray-On Metal Coatings
Optical Brighteners for Plastics
UV Protective Coatings for Plastics
Self-Cleaning Sign-Face Coatings for Plastics
Vandal Resistant Coatings
Our modern 1.2 acre (under roof)
production facility, with both high and low dock doors, is
located on a 3 acre concrete pad; the additional area
being used for parking and "clean" outside storage.
One-half acre is planted greenbelt.
