Ches Perry moves to Chicago from his native Newfoundland, Canada to pursue a degree in commercial design, but its up being school dedicated to teaching the art and craft of sign painting. He falls in love with the world of sign painting and never looks back.
Ches Perry purchases Brownie Signs, a small sign shop in Evanston, Illinois. Times are good and he has seven sign painters at one time, but vinyl graphics enter in the early 1990s and change the sign industry and wipe out the need for sign painting. Ches stays with it, but adapts to the latest trends in computer sign making to stay competitive.
At first it was supposed to be a small sign shop like Ches had in the 80s, but it quickly grows into a full-service sign company working with clients like the Chicago Cubs, Goose Island Beer Company, Starbucks, Heritage Bike Shop, Dollop Coffee, Chicago Athletic Clubs and hundreds of businesses, large and small, over the last 5+ years.
Right Way Signs of Chicago employees a team of 18 people, split into 4 teams: sign painting & murals; sign fabrication; large format printing and vinyl graphics; sign installation; and the office team (sales, design, project management, and sign permitting. The company continues to grow and expand their services within the sign industry, giving clients a one-stop solution for all of their sign and graphics needs.
