My name is Christine Mead and I live in Perry, NY. I have loved to draw all my life and have been blessed to be in the Graphic Arts field my whole adult life.
My older brother gave me a calender one year for Christmas for "left handed" people and I saw all the referances to "SOUTHPAW" in it. I lost my brother shortly after that to MD and decided to remember him with naming my newest adventure "Southpaw Signz".
1984 - 1991
I worked at Champion Products in the Art Dept. learning how to do seperations for screenprinting and designing new graphics for colleges and businesses.
1991 - 2006
Started my own Graphics company, Go 4 It Graphics with a business partner doing artwork for local schools, camps and businesses needing silkscreening, embroidery, embossing and vinyl graphics.
2006 - Present
Own and operate Southpaw Signz creating graphics and logos for vinyl decals, signs, banners, vehicles...
The large format printers get better every year and is exciting to see the technology grow constantly. This makes my job fun to keep reaching for new ways to create signs and graphics for my customers.
2016 marks 10 years of business and still loving every minute of it. I know there are many sign shops out there and want to Thank all my loyal customers for their business over the years.
Here's to many more, God willing....
