In 1977, Bobby Joslin began helping his grandfather change out parking lot lights at downtown Nashville car dealerships. Eventually, they began asking if he could fix their signage as well…and the rest is history. As demand grew and his customer base expanded, what began as a simple one-truck repair service evolved into one of the largest custom sign shops in Middle Tennessee.
Bobby Joslin’s loyalty and passion for his hometown is unmatched. He remains intentionally involved in the community, voicing his concerns and banding together with other local businesses to improve and innovate Nashville.
Joslin’s customers are friends, neighbors, and fellow Nashvillians, among corporate clientele across the country. We make it our mission to collaborate with our customers, sharing the sign making experience and cultivating lasting relationships. These connections are, after all, what life is all about. As Bobby always says, “If you don’t know signs, know your sign man!” And please, do.

I’m thrilled with Mike Shea’s work on Elliston Place Soda Shop. I appreciated his personal enthusiasm for our efforts to preserve this Nashville icon. The LED and other signage Joslin & Son Signs provided both inside and outside were critically important elements.
I just had to pass along the happiness and gratitude, from both Sony and myself. I've been in signage for 15 years, and I've worked with countless vendors across the world, and Mike Shea ...you and your team made this so incredibly easy on me! From working with my designs, the absolute ease of the permitting process, and the completion of such a quality sign, it's a rarity and a treat to have a project go so smoothly! I can only say thank you so many times, but I wish I could say it more! I truly appreciate your craftsmanship and dedication to this project, and I'm looking forward to seeing those interior signs and meeting you next month when I come!
