For more than 70 years, our family-owned business has been delivering on our promise to provide unique designs that are both visually dynamic yet community friendly. We pride ourselves on never delivering anything less than perfection to our clients.


We are located in Paducah, Kentucky, a beautiful river town that is deep in culture and historical preservation. Our town is full of old buildings, families with roots over 100 years old, railways, riverboat stories, and quilts. We are know as Quilt City USA. We moved from our 2nd St. location in the late 1970's to our current location 534 S. 6th Street. Our building has great history. It was once a former Coca-Cola facility,  it survived the 1937 Flood, at some point it became a Dodge dealership, and it also contained living quarters. 


Troutman Sign Graphics, Inc. began with Howard Troutman, who hand-lettered commercial cards during the local news on black and white television. The business was passed on to Tom Troutman, who by age 10, was hand-lettering buildings and windows of local businesses. Some of those jobs  still remain on buildings and in windows of several multi-generation businesses. 

Today, Troutman Sign Graphics, Inc. is a third generation business. Family members have joined the business to contribute to the growth our future.
