Madison Avenue was founded in 1993 by Steve Hall and Charlie Wiemers, two old friends who ran across each other in the DC suburbs, decades after they’d played together on their Chicago-area high school soccer team. Both were accomplished executives with successful corporate careers. Both were looking for something entrepreneurial and fun to build. Both had young families to support. Neither had ever made a sign.
But they had a vision. Where others just saw vinyl, paint, and plastic, they saw an opportunity to bring creativity and professionalism to an industry that needed a bit of both. Along the way, they discovered that their best customers shared their values: quality, reliability, and true partnership. It has been 25 years since Steve and Charlie launched Madison Avenue, but we feel like we are just getting started.
Madison Avenue is proud to be women-run, women-owned and that our products are made in the USA. We work with many of the nation’s leading corporations, non-profits, and meeting management companies. We help creatively accessorize and brand events with various meeting-support products and graphics. Our in-house designers and project management team partner with our clients to match them with the best products that keep events looking professional and running smoothly.
With over 25 years of experience, you can trust our team to be with you every step of the way through the ordering process, from concept inception to on-time delivery.
Give us a call, send an email or order directly on our website. Then go ahead and forward your art files and instructions through our website’s user-friendly FTP site. But first, take a look at our website’s Art Guidelines to make sure your files are properly configured. But feel free to call us with any questions.
We will assign your order a Project Manager (PM) who will contact you to review your order details and start the process moving forward. Work with your PM until all the details match your vision. We’ll then email you proof to review and/or adjust. Nothing is printed or produced until we receive your email approval.
Once your approval is received, our Production Team goes into action. When the smoke clears, both Production and your Project Manager carefully inspect all elements of your order. This last procedure ensures that all the items are included, and the graphics match the proof you approved.
Following quality control checks, our Shipping Manager expertly packages and ships your order. Once it leaves our dock, you will receive a notification email from firstname.lastname@example.org with your tracking information.
