HONOLULU SIGN CO.

Having been around since 1939, Honolulu Sign Co. has a mini museum of sorts in one of its back offices. From signage for a South Pacific governor’s race to Jake and the Fatman television series to the one-time Hawai‘i professional football team in the 1970s, Honolulu Sign tells a visual history of almost the past century with very little need for words. Terry Rotz, whose father moved to O‘ahu from Washington state in 1939 and joined Honolulu Sign in 1946, is the second generation of his family to work in the business.
