We Got Signs

My household's latest tagline for Pomona is "City of Signs" or the catchier "Sign City."

With all these signs about town, it's not surprising that Pomona is home to a few sign companies.

The oldest is Williams Sign Co., located between First and Second Streets east of downtown. The Williams' building is pristinely painted and decorated with awesome examples of their signage. Apparently Williams does the signs for In N Out. In N Out Burger that is.
I clarify because Pomona is also home to "In N Out Pomona Smog Check" at 1711 Holt Street. Last year, the owner there was nice enough to get me in and out at 4 p.m. on a Saturday.

While In N Out Pomona Smog Check's facilities are not quite as pristine as Williams, the place does have a certain Holt Street mystique.

If you go there, tell them you heard about them on the blog. I'm sure they won't have any idea what you are talking about.

Pomona has a new neon sign company on Garey, across the street from Pomona Flowers.

Pomona Flowers is home to one of my favorite Pomona signs, especially when one or another of the letters is burnt out to spell different words.

Dynamic Grafix at the corner of Jefferson and Garey makes signs. Really nice owner who supports the community and apparently U.C.L.A.

Lastly, Impact Signs out on Temple Street somewhere. Their motto and website is simply We Got Signs. The same can be said about Pomona.
