Aztec Signs is a commercial sign shop in Dallas Center, Iowa with over 45 years experience in the engineering, design, and fabrication of custom lighted signs, commercial signs, banners, and vehicle lettering.
Samantha (Sam) Bryant has owned and operated Aztec Signs since 2007. A natural commercial artist and professional graphics designer, Sam proved her skills in sign design and lettering in the high-volume environment at Joe Batey Signs in Des Moines, Iowa from 1996-2000.
In 1999 Sam and her husband Morrie, also an experienced signman, moved to Dallas Center and in 2000, they established their own full-service sign business, Aztec Art & Sign.
As this new business evolved, it proved more cost-effective and headache-free to abandon Morrie's high-maintenance electric and neon service part of the business, and focus more on the commercial signage needs of our growing list of walk-in customers of the Dallas County area: Dallas Center, Adel, Waukee, Grimes, DeSoto, Earlham, Van Meter, etc.
As a result, Morrie retired as a signman (not that he doesn't offer his "occasional" critiques) at the end of 2006, to become a semi-retired website developer. Sam became sole owner/operator and renamed the company Aztec Signs.
Thanks to Morrie's work in the website business, Aztec Signs also operates our e-commerce website SignLetterSupply.com, as a national distributor of Zip-Change and Pronto flat panel changeable sign letters, and Wagner and Gemini dimensional marquee letters, letter changers, suction cups, letter track, and other marquee sign repair parts.
