WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT
OUR WORK SPEAKS FOR ITSELF, BUT HERE’S WHAT IT CAN’T SAY...
Our continuing mission is to deliver a premium product and build lasting relationships with every customer. In short, we want to be YOUR sign shop. We would like to think you mean Bolingbrook Signs+Apparel when saying “I got a guy for that”.
The company has been proudly family owned and operated from the very beginning. After leaving behind the haunted house business in 2008, Kevin Palmer (brother) and Leslie Reed (sister), created an unmatched duality of endless creativity and pragmatic wit in 2008. After 10 years on Boughton Road – The Shop has relocated to a brand new and larger space! The store now faces Schmidt Road, across from the 7Eleven gas station. We are neighbors with Bolingbrook High School, located at Schmidt Road and Lilly Cache Road.
The Shop is a major supporter of the local community’s organizations, and contribute whatever they can to support local efforts while accommodating other clients with the same level of intensity and enthusiasm. It may seem like a small shop from the outside, but the team definitely hides some muscle under their sleeves by churning out designs, signs, apparel and promo items on a consistent basis.
SUPPORT BOLINGBROOK BUSINESSES!
THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING LOCAL SO WE CAN SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY

Do you print on shirts?
We sure do! We print on all types of apparel and accessories. T-shirts, sweatshirts, long sleeves, hoodies, bags, can coolies, hats, beanies, are just a few of the items in our product catalog.
Do I need to bring in the shirt?
No, you do not need to provide the shirt. In fact, we prefer you purchase the apparel thru our shop.
Can I order a shirt online?
Currently we do not have an online store directly thru The Shop. We do, however, have an Etsy store where you can purchase a lot of pre-designed shirts. You are always welcome to call our shop and place and order over the phone.
Do I have to order a large quantity of shirts or can I order just 1?
You can absolutely order just 1 shirt. We offer qty’s as low as 1 all the way to large bulk orders. There are no minimums at The Shop.
What are your prices?
Everything that we do is custom to order. That being said, every little detail makes a difference in the price. We encourage our current and future customers to give our shop a call or stop in the office to discuss the details of your project so we can give you an accurate quote.
What is your process for ordering?
The process starts out with either a conversation or a consultation with one of our staff members about your order. Once we have gathered enough information from you, we will then provide you with a quote. As long as you approve of the quote, then we can move forward with the design process once a deposit has been made. We ALWAYS send proofs of your order before we put it into production. If everything is approved, we then start production for the finished product. Turnaround times may vary depending on the project.
Besides for signs, what other things do you do?
We offer an abundance of promotional items. From cups, cannisters and key tags to bags, badges and tools. You name it and we can get it! We also sell an assortment of apparel items such as hoodies, crewnecks, t-shirts, tanks and sweatpants. We print single color as well as full color designs onto any garment of your choosing. If you are just looking for a digital design, our on-staff graphic designer can assist you! The sky is the limit here at The Shop.
Do you offer sign kits?
We offer a handful of different sign kits depending on what you are looking for. Some common kits that are requested from customers are a-frames, advertising flags, retractable banner stands and step-repeat photo back drops.
Can I order online?

Can I put any logo on a shirt?
We have a variety of different print processes for you to choose from. We offer heat press vinyl, screen printing, dye sublimation and full color vinyl.

We do not charge per letter rather total area of the design. We have small, medium and large impression costs. You can fill the garment with as many letters and logos as you’d like.
I have an idea but I need help designing the shirt, can you help?
We sure can! We have an amazing on-site graphic designer who can help bring your idea to life!
