Tallmadge Ship Center under new management
The Tallmadge Ship Center is under new ownership. Jacki Cyr, the founder and 15-year owner has sold the business to John Fankhauser.
Fankhauser, who has a background in signs and graphics, plans to keep all the existing services such as shipping and packaging, and expand the sign and T-shirt printing part of the business. He has studied graphic design at the University of Akron, and has had a 30-year career in the sign and graphic field, working various management positions at area sign shops. He operates a sign business called Amerisign that he will continue to run at the Tallmadge Ship Center.
Fankhauser said he will offer many types of custom signs to the public -- full-color printed signs on banners, corroplast, aluminum, as well as vehicle and window graphics. He has expanded the T-shirt printing services to include small or large quantity orders, and also has an online store called Brick Street Apparel. He is able to provide shirts for large groups such as schools and organizations.
