Beacon Sign and Apparel began life in 1987 as Itty Bitty Sign Shop, owned and operated by Luann Burton.
After 29 years at the helm, Luann decided to retire, and Andrew Bradley took up the mantle of running one of Sidney’s longest serving businesses.
In the Spring of 2020, it was time for a change. Itty Bitty was growing and was no longer “Itty Bitty”. The name changed to better reflect its close ties with the community, equipment was upgraded, and a great team was assembled.
We have an awesome team now with Raven the Maven…. The lovely Sharon Rose Kneeshaw with more than 25 years of graphics design experience under her belt. And myself Andrew, I’m a well-traveled true blue dinky die Aussie. I have a great wife, a great kid, great friends, and I’ll make sure that you get a great experience when you come to see us.
Andrew came out of the marine industry and has a background in photography. His focus is on providing exceptional service and value to his customers. His goal is always to put a smile on his customers face.
Raven is always up for a challenge; she is highly creative and is great at finding solutions. Raven has singlehandedly built up the apparel side of the business and is always pushing the limits of what she can create. Raven is the glue that holds it all together.
