J&S Signs is a sign painting business founded by Jeffrey Sincich and Josh Stover, currently based in Portland, OR, although we love to travel for work! We specialize in designing and painting large wall signs, murals, window signs, blade signs, gilded signs, menus, vehicle lettering, and a variety of small items such as "open/closed" signs or directional signs.

J&S Signs began in St. Petersburg, Florida in 2013. Jeffrey and Josh became friends at the University of Florida, where they each completed their BFA in ceramics. After college, they each spent some time working in the ceramics field before moving to St. Petersburg. In 2013, Jeffrey and Josh painted several positive message murals on blank walls around St. Petersburg. Because the murals that they painted were text based, Jeffrey and Josh began getting inquiries for painted signs by some area businesses, which led to the formation of J&S Signs. In 2015, J&S Signs relocated to Portland, Oregon, where they are currently based.

We take pride in creating our own designs for signage, murals, and logos, but are also happy to work with an existing logo or something a client brings to us. We love to design signs and murals that include bold, graphic shapes, lettering and some illustrative elements. When we are designing signs and murals, we draw inspiration from historic "ghost signs," old advertising and vintage packaging. We are always eager to find ways for signage to fit into each building’s unique character and architectural details. We see each job as an opportunity to make our world a more interesting place.

When we are putting together a quote for a sign or mural project, there are several factors that we consider:

• Size and complexity of the design to be painted
• Whether we will be creating a design for a client or painting an existing design
• Location
• Height of the sign or mural
• Travel costs
• Material costs
• Estimated time it will take to complete the project

We do not have set prices, but instead we create specialized quotes for each project we take on because these factors can vary so widely from job to job.


Getting Started

If you are interested in having us work on your sign or mural project the first step is to send us a description of your idea. Try to be as detailed as possible and, if you can, include the following:

• Size of the sign or mural
• Location of the project
• Whether it is indoors or outdoors
• Do you already have a design or would you like us to design something? (We are happy to do so.)
• Any images of your design or photos of the location will help us get a clear idea of the project and what you are looking for.

For some wall murals and larger wall signs we like to come look at the space before pricing the project. This helps us determine what kind of materials and equipment we may need for the job. Any materials or rental equipment needed will be included in the price of the project. (Scaffolding, lifts, etc.)

Once we have all of the details we can get to work putting together an estimate for you. When everything has been approved, we just need a deposit to schedule your project and we can get started on sketches. Deposits are nonrefundable.

If you’re interested in working with us, send us an email!

We look forward to working with you!
