About Us

    A passion for creativity with beginnings in furniture design and antique restoration, Bruce Janssen applied his talents and began crafting fine art-inspired signs nearly 45 years ago. Since, the Woodshop and Classic Signs have accumulated a sizable portfolio of award-winning designs. From classic to contemporary, from synthetic to natural materials, clients appreciate a comprehensive approach to signage and wayfinding. Whether a complete navigational signage system or a second home entrance sign, a talented team of sign makers bring professionalism, attention to detail, and expertise to each project.
