65 Years Of Leadership In The Sign Industry

B Sign Group was formed to bring together Bottom Sign Company and Eagle Sign & Design under one roof. Both companies had a strong history and deep experience in making signs using different techniques, but their ideology was the same. 

Bottom Sign Company was established by brothers Bob and Joe Bottom in New Albany, Indiana in April of 1955. They quickly gained a reputation for their dedication to customer service and quality in the signs they created. In 1985, second generation Bill Bottom and his wife Sandy ushered in a new era at Bottom Sign Company. They moved into a new location in Clarksville, Indiana and continued to build on the Bottom Sign Company reputation. 

Fast forward to the year 2005. Enter Joey Bates, a close friend of the Bottom family. With a vast knowledge and background in the sign and construction industry, he decided to acquire the company from the family. In keeping with tradition, Joey kept the name that to this day is known for the same unparalleled customer service and quality that it started with in 1955. Joey and with his talented team of professionals turned Bottom Sign Company into the area leader in custom signs, vehicle wraps and sign services.

Meanwhile Eagle Sign & Design built over two decades of experience as the premier custom sign manufacturer in Louisville, KY, with a reputation for excellence that is still unsurpassed. Started as a small sign company in 1995 by John Shircliffe, Eagle Sign & Design grew significantly over the years. You can find their signs, mailboxes and plaques in virtually every neighborhood and business. With John’s creative oversight, the capabilities and experience of the Eagle Team is second to none when it comes to helping customers get the signs they need, for virtually any application.

In 2011, John Shircliffe stepped back as owner, but continued overseeing day to day operations. For the next several years Eagle Sign & Design continued its growth with their products in the custom plaque, residential development and golf course industries. In 2017, Joey saw an opportunity to expand and agreed to acquire Eagle Sign & Design.
