I have used Andy’s services over the past few years.  He has done some graphic design work for me as well as signage design and installation.  Andy’s work has always been of very high quality.  But to me, what defines him most is his refreshingly pleasant manner and rock-solid dependability.  He has my highest recommendation. – Luigi Calvori, Audiologist

Andy did a number of small window sign jobs for me including changing my logo and posting new hours on the door. He was prompt, meticulous and very thorough. I had no trouble then asking him for a quote on a full car wrap. As you can see by the pictures of my car, Andy’s skill and design flare really show through. It’s a real head turner and I’m getting amazing results. It’s Andy’s attention to detail, his creative design skills  and his commitment to good service that make me feel very happy to recommend him to others. – Kathleen Erikson, Owner/Publisher

Nail Saloon – Washington DC

After searching far and wide for the perfect sign, we discovered Design Nanaimo a few years ago and could not be happier! Andy was a consummate pro throughout, and really articulated our vision, providing us with great design options! Our sign represents three stores in a building, and looks absolutely beautiful. This year, after a lot of wear and tear, our sign needed a part replaced and Andy once again stepped up to the plate, solving the problem for us right away. We are all the way in Washington, DC – a long ways away from Nanaimo, Canada –  but wouldn’t dream of using any other sign maker from here on out. Thanks Andy! – Andrea Vieira/Owner
