About Judi - .

Judi Welch grew up in Wisconsin Rapids, WI and ventured into the art field at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh obtaining a BS degree in commercial art. She has since been in the sign business for herself for over 35 years specializing in custom hand lettering.


Being the sole proprietor of Judi Welch Signs, Judi has been able to expand her abilities as well as her business, allowing for a more creative flair and a one-of-a-kind look that is often lost in the larger conglomerate companies.


Over the last 35 years in business, Judi has become known for her “boat names”, that can range anywhere from a 15 foot fishing boat to a 60 foot yacht. Some of these include work for celebrities such as Ray Allen’s “SUGAR 34”, Mike Holmgren’s “FIVE LADIES & MOOR- RINGS” and Mark Chumura’s "SUPER CHEWY”


In 1996, Judi had the opportunity to team up with other sign shops and help “wrap” buses for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, GA. In 1995, she helped work on the entrance field to the College Football Hall of Fame at Notre Dame. It’s because of her unique style and capabilities the Judi has been able to participate in so much.


With the expansion of technology, Judi has been able to computerize that hand painted look to create vinyl graphics to fit every need that arises, however custom hand lettering has always been her forte apparent in the wide variety of painted wall graphics and custom lettered chalk boards she has completed.


Judi Welch Signs has proven to be more than a sign shop, it is a dying art. Handcrafted from conception to design to implementation, it is a full service sign business with a uniqueness that cannot be found often. Judi Welch takes a customer’s thoughts and turns them into customized reality.

After all, “It’s all in the technique!”
