Lorraine Vanek - Office Manager

Life has a way of coming full circle. Many years ago, I chose a path that led me into the medical field, when the road less travelled would have taken me to Art School. Here I am today using my creative talent and attention to detail and precision in a business that relies on visual communication and exceptional graphic design. Bringing ideas from an original concept within my mind to an actual physical product that is then delivered to a satisfied client is what is exciting to me. Something new is created every day and the possibilities are endless.

My creativity extends to my personal and family life, as well, and I enjoy all forms of crafting, including cooking & baking, painting, calligraphy, sketching, needlework & sewing, knit & crochet, gardening & too many DIY projects to list. I’m not afraid of using power tools, either, thanks to my Dad.

I feel that my experiences, creativity and communication skills will enhance the customer experience when they come to Sign Me Up Smithtown. I am proud to be a part of the Sign Me Up Signs & Advertising family and look forward to what the future will bring.
