When Investors Realty started in 1975, one of the first needs the company had was signs to advertise properties that were for lease or sale. We turned to Doug Schmitz who, along with business partner Allan Rarick, had started ArtFac Graphics a few years earlier in 1971. Forty years later, ArtFac Graphics continues to produce our signs.
When Investors Realty started working with ArtFac Graphics, Doug’s brother, Larry Schmitz, worked for the company and installed all of our signs. Even after leaving the company years ago, Larry still installs our signs today.
ArtFac Graphics prides itself on an ability to grow with changes in technology, equipment, industry standards, and marketing trends. The business started by making hand-painted signs and, today, utilizes state-of-the-art graphic solutions to meet the needs of its clients. Doug and his team have produced several different versions of Investors Realty signs over the years.
Now a division of Omaha Neon Sign Company, ArtFac Graphics provides high quality display and promotional graphics, posters and point-of-purchase merchandising, and fleet and vehicle advertising.
Doug, Larry, and the team at ArtFac Graphics have been terrific partners to Investors Realty and we appreciate the work they have done for us over the past 40 years!
