About Us

Steve Hosmer painting the Welcome to Santa Cruz Mural (2012) Welcome to Stokes Signs! This is our virtual store where we sell everything but signs. That said, we're going to tell you a bit about our sign shop.

We've been making custom signs since 1974. We pioneer new technologies while continuing to practice traditional sign-making techniques. From Neon Signs to Reverse Gold Work and everything in between, we design, fabricate, and install your custom sign. 

Sign-maker-in-chief Stephen Hosmer has also got an art habit. Over the years he's created an iconic series of images celebrating Santa Cruz destinations. He sells posters, postcards, magnets and t-shirts in the shop and around town, but well, we realize it's 2012 and decided to make our products available online as well. Well, everything except custom orders. And signs. 

To place a custom order, or to talk to us in person, contact us by phone, email, Facebook or stop by the shop. Don't be shy! Here's where you can find us: Stokes Signs 303 Potrero St. #9 Santa Cruz, CA 95060 tel.831.426.1570
