WHO WE ARE.
Total Motors’ graphic solutions department started on January 1st, 2018, but was previously known as Old School Signs based out of Le Mars, Iowa. Old School Signs was a small business that was owned and operated by Cathy Krommenhoek. Cathy has a wealth of knowledge and experience with sign development, graphic design, vehicle graphics, business interior, free-standing signs, apparel & textiles, decals, banners and about any POS you or your business would need.
The history of Old School Sign Company began in 1989 after college, when the owner of the company, Cathy Krommenhoek, began work as an apprentice signwriter in an “old school” environment at a greatly respected sign company in northwest Iowa. The 20-year history of sign making began in the earlier years each morning with a hand-lettering training session by one of the area’s leading sign makers. It was this employment that taught Cathy the business and developed her talents to design and produce commercial advertising.
The advertising industry has changed dramatically over the years from hand-painted applications to digital computer-aided graphics. Old School Signs successfully kept up with technology, being able to offer customers both old school, traditional signage as well as digital graphics; a rare trade in the business.
The experience allowed Old School Signs to be able to provide a full package, one-stop shop to its customers by being able to incorporate the production of their logo design into storefront signs and other items in their business plan, as well as offer consulting services of all advertising products available to them and their business.
In 2018 Total Motors saw an opportunity to streamline some of their offerings and allow a “total” in-house solution. Total Motors was looking to offer their customers full-vehicle solutions between their sales, service, and collision departments. That is when the owner of Total Motors, Scott Taylor, came to a progressive business acquisition with Old School Signs and with Cathy Krommenhoek.
Total Motors Graphics Solutions and Cathy will continue to serve all the previous customers that Old School Signs served while still offering all the wonderful services that Old School Signs had.
Please allow Cathy and our team to help or continue to play a part in your success!
