Finally, Instasigns’ signature graphics application process has become our specialty. Allow us to properly prepare and install your vehicle graphics to withstand the test of time. Most other companies will apply your vehicle graphic outdoors, inviting dust and debris to compromise the integrity of the final product, resulting in a wrap that quickly loses its adhesion and beauty. This is a waste of time and money. We will apply your vehicle graphics in our climate controlled garage, eliminating the costly errors that arise from outdoor application.

Instasigns was founded in 2000 by Eric Uhland. Having worked for many years in the sign business, Eric recognized the need for a more efficient, accessible way for businesses and individuals to purchase signage products and services in the Westminster area.
Before Instasigns was founded, choices for consumers in need of signage were limited. Sign companies in the area were slow, lacking in modern approaches to design and printing, and weak on customer support. Eric’s vision was to improve the sign industry by offering more services, greater options, faster turnaround time, up-to-date technology, design recommendations and a facilitated method for customers to secure the results they wanted for less.
The beginnings of Instasigns were humble. Upon founding his company, Eric worked long hours into the night, meeting and exceeding his customers’ expectations for signage design, quality and service, while toiling in the restricted workspace of his home. Soon, his business outgrew the dim lights of his basement and he sought his first retail location. He was proud and excited beyond measure to open his first store front in a retail location on Bond Street in Westminster.
By the time his new store opened, Instasigns had already established a strong clientele base and reputation for meeting strict time lines with unsurpassed quality. As an active part of the Main Street community in Westminster, Instasigns quickly became known as a leader of advancement in the local signage industry. Business grew at a fast past, and customers responded with enthusiasm to the new, streamlined and facilitated way signage was being offered in the area. Instasigns continued to grow quickly, so quickly in fact, that before long, it was time again for owner, Eric Uhland to search for a larger, more suitable facility to accommodate his new staff, and the new, state-of-the-art, equipment Instasigns had acquired.
A new, fully equipped, facility was constructed in 2007 on 57 Aileron Drive, just north of Westminster. The move made it easier for Instasigns to meet the demand of their loyal customer base, and offer customers the high quality products and services that separated Instasigns from their competition. The new facility houses the latest state of the art equipment including wideformat printers with several digital pieces of equipment and a warehouse, unique to the industry, with enough room to service three regular sized work vans or one tractor trailer at a time. It is this warehouse that enables Instasigns to specialize in, and perfect, the climate controlled application process of vehicle graphics, done the RIGHT way, and unsurpassed by the competition in both beauty and longevity.
Thanks to years of hard work, learning, development and innovation at Instasigns, customers continue to have their signage standards met and exceeded on a daily basis. Superior customer service, strong relationships with the highest quality vendors, access to the highest quality materials, workflow efficiency, design expertise, accessibility and fast turn-around time keep Instasigns on the cutting edge of the sign industry. What began as a vision grew into a reliable company that customers have come to depend on for a positive signage experienced for the last ten years. Be the next customer to be thrilled by your experience with Instasigns.
Instasigns owner, Eric Uhland, received his education at Towson University and Catonsville Community College in the field of Computer Graphics and Visual Communications. His combined experience of 15 years in sign business sales, management and ownership contribute to his unique insight into the challenging projects his company handles today. For ten years, Eric has guided Instasigns in its mission to develop relationships with businesses while helping them meet their visual communication goals. Eric’s expertise in the sign industry, his innate eye for visual balance and color, and his easily accessible personality all contribute to his ability to work with clients and recommend the best solution for their individual signage needs. Eric guides his company with compassion for the community and assures that Instasigns is actively involved in donations, fundraisers and other charity events. His commitment to family, church and community weigh heavily upon his work ethic, motivation for success and reputation with his clients.

And never fear, due to our stellar customer service, help and support are always just a phone call away.
At Instasigns, we possess finer cost control than do many other companies. The cost based pricing system we apply to many of our products means you avoid paying “market driven “ price-per-square-foot costs, which does not always benefit the customer. However, in the event that price per square foot costs DO benefit you more, we have the flexibility to apply that pricing system as well, giving you a price that works to your cost advantage. In addition, a lot of sign companies will not start a quantity discount until you order several signs, at Instasigns, in many cases, you will begin realizing cost savings upon the second sign in your order, a testament to our commitment to offer you competitive pricing.
Our clean and orderly appearance is a reflection of our controlled and efficient workflow. Our showroom is modern, fresh, and cleanly; an example to other sign shops for which to strive, and a clear indication to you about the quality you receive and the organization behind the scenes.
Related to our cleanliness is our timeliness. Organization allows us to streamline our schedule and keep customers and their projects in good hands.

It is our commitment to work within your means and provide you with an array of materials that work with an array of budgets. Our prices remain competitive due to our organization, efficiency and knowledge of the business, not because we pass along cheap materials or rush a job.
Instasigns is independently owned and operated; allowing us greater flexibility in the decision making processes that directly affect how our customers’ needs are met. Unlike a franchise, Instasigns was founded on direct experience in the industry and is not controlled by a group of people not well versed in the details of the business. Our company owner has established his business through hard work and labor, from the ground up, and is immersed in every aspect of the signage product or service that you receive from us.
