It’s been said that all sign painters are inventors by necessity, and when Dale Boyd was just 18 years old, he saw Becker Signs painting a trailer and he was immediately captivated. Realizing that this was professional grade work, Dale decided this style of work was something he wanted to do so he found a part-time course in continuing education that taught this quality of painting. Once he completed his studies, he got an apprenticeship at Becker Signs and it turned into employment and eventually he ended up buying the business. Some of the highlights of Dale’s sign painting career took place when he painted Airplanes for Ward Air and for Pink Panther “Think Pink” for their fleet of trailers!
