EMPLOYEES BUY JAFA SIGNS,
FOCUS ON COMMUNITY AND INNOVATION IN NEW LOCATION
PENTICTON, B.C., November 30, 2017 – Employees of Jafa Signs, a trusted partner to Okanagan businesses and organizations since 1995, have bought the company in whole, and recommitted to Penticton as their home and to innovation as their focus, based at a new location at 106-1960 Barnes Street starting Dec.1.
New owners Dallas Fish and Angela Fish, longtime employees of Jafa Signs, together bring over 40 years’ experience in some of the most innovative signage and printing companies in Western Canada. The new location provides a more creative workspace for the staff and houses new equipment and a new, larger showroom.
“As a home-town girl, I’m excited to own a business here, creating family-supporting jobs for our team,” said Angela Fish. “We are proud that all our sign employees are staying with us, including those with 35 years’ experience as well as the new apprentices we are passionate about mentoring and training.”
To recognize their commitment to the South Okanagan and say thanks, today Jafa Signs also launched the Jafa Community Window Graphic’s program. This program provides free marketing window signage to one local area not-for-profit each month. Any organization registered under the Societies Act from Penticton and the South Okanagan is eligible. Each month Jafa Signs will randomly draw from applications and provide a custom windowwrap valued up to $2,000 to help that organization deliver any message they want – from fundraising, to celebrating volunteers or promoting a key event or program.
“As the new sole owners of Jafa Signs, we can now start to give back to our community, with the launch of our new Jafa Community Window Graphic’s program,” said Dallas Fish, a professional graphic designer. “Our work is all about promoting great organizations, business and their stories – we are so excited to help not-for-profits tell their stories of their commitment to our community, a value we share!”
“We’ve set up four sign shops for other owners to date, including Jafa Signs, and are now ready to jump in and be the entrepreneurs we always dreamed of being,” said Angela Fish. “We invest in the newest equipment and the best staff training so our clients get the best value and results in signage, printing and design – and all in one shop!”
