OUR PROUD

History

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.
