ACT Printing Division brightens Signal Mountain Boulevard

ACT Printing Division on Signal Mountain Boulevard is hard to miss. The building is so vibrant with blues, reds, yellows, greens and violets that it easily catches the attention of passersby who exit U.S. 27 toward Signal Mountain.

ACT owner Kent Davis said that’s exactly what he was going for.

The printing and sign-making shop uses the building to display the very product it sells.

“We did everything on the building,” Davis said. “That was kind of the concept — to show people the stuff you can do.”

That goes for the interior of the building as well. ACT Printing Division provides signs, business cards, vinyl banners, letterheads, brochures and more, most of which can be seen displayed inside the shop.

Specialty items are also offered, like coffee cups with the customer’s logo, said Davis.

“If you want it printed, we’ve got you,” he said, adding that the business can apply graphics to walls, floors, even ceilings. “Wherever you want it, we put it there.”

ACT Printing Division is actually an extension of ACT Business Machines located just a quarter-mile down the road toward Dayton Boulevard. The business was growing and needed to find a second location to expand into, Davis said in regards to the colorful new location.

ACT Printing Division is located at 305 Signal Mountain Blvd. and can be reached at 664-4164. Visit printingplussigns.com to learn more.
