From the desk of Pete Ordway

Since our inception in 1983, Ordway Sign Supply has tried to service you, the customer, to the best of our ability. We realize you have many choices from whom to get your equipment and supplies, and we strive for a level of service that keeps you coming back again and again. Our family run business continues to grow with the help of customers like you. 

As signmakers ourselves, we were frustrated by not having a local supplier in the immediate area. Discovering other local signmakers had the same problem, we opened Ordway Sign Supply to fill this void. The closest supplier at the time was in downtown L.A., and if you ever traveled L.A.'s freeways, you know what a mess it can be. The San Fernando Valley, and specifically Van Nuys is about 25 miles north of L.A.

Along with Paints, Brushes, Sign Blanks, and such, we started producing vinyl lettering for the trade. Like just about everyone else, we put an old Gerber 4B to hell and back. From there we bought an Anagraph and then began selling complete systems. Outlasting our dealerships with Technoarts, and HTD (they both went belly up), putting plotters and software together was a natural evolution. Technology and the vinyl revolution has changed the way signs are made, and we are changing along with them. Now that digital printing is opening new doors of opportunity, it has become the next revolution. We continue our commitment to stay at the forefront of technology, and offering you new ways to be more profitable in this exciting and ever changing profession. 

I hope you enjoy our website, and find it useful. Many long nights were put into it. (My wife can tell you about the affair she thinks I’m having with my computer!)

My family and I thank you for your support...

Pete Ordway
