Marking Industry Magazine, the only national trade publication targeted to the marking devices industry, announces that Holmes Stamp & Sign of Jacksonville, Florida has been named the 2010 Platinum Manufacturer of the Year, after posting an 18 percent increase in sales. In 1998, Holmes Stamp & Sign owner Bryan Croft started in the family business after graduating from the University of North Florida with a marketing degree and a head full of ideas about how to improve his family’s already successful business.

High Quality Rubber Stamp and Sign Products

Holmes Stamp & Sign has been in business for 56 years and by now we have learned that service it our thing! – Lots of companies can make stamps and signs, but we focus on service and price!

Even during this recession, Holmes Stamp & Sign has thrived and expanded through internal growth and strategic acquisitions. Croft and Vice President Steve Fernandez continually make decisions about which technologies will enable them to increase efficiencies and improve their customers’ experience. By integrating cutting edge technologies, including a focus on web based customers and manufacturing improvements, Holmes Stamp & Sign stays focused on its goal of providing the best customer service at competitive pricing.

Another key to the success and expansion of Holmes Stamp & Sign has been the steadfast commitment to diversifying the product line. By doing so, Holmes Stamp & Sign can better serve their existing customers and attract new customers. They have continued to manufacture core products such as rubber stamps, office name plates, name tags and engraved signs, while adding items to the product line such as full color banners, promotional products, acrylic awards and plaques. This wide range of products allows Holmes Stamp & Sign to meet more of its customers’ marketing needs.

This growth-oriented philosophy has been the driving force behind Croft’s attempt to adapt the company’s 57-year-old policies and procedures to its growing customer base. “When I started at Holmes Stamp & Sign all of our customers were local”. By strategically positioning ourselves within the expanding internet market, and taking advantage of the improvements in technology, we have been able to expand our footprint not only nationwide, but across the globe.” Croft states. “What separates us is service,” Croft says. “Can you get the customer their order on time and at a fair price? Service is a top priority, and we continue to work with different standard operating procedures and LEAN processes to improve.” By doing so, Croft and Fernandez expect to be able to continue to position Holmes Stamp & Sign for continued success for the next 50 years and beyond.
