Who We Are

We love what we do! 

The founders of today’s KSC, Claudia and Jay Nolan, are native Kentuckians, one from Western KY, one from Eastern Kentucky. Both believe, from bourbon to sports teams, cars to horses, Kentucky equals the best. 

When the two Communications majors met in Lexington at UK, they discovered they had a lot in common, personally and professionally. They married and traveled around the world while Jay served as an Army officer and earned an MBA. They chose to come home to Kentucky and work in his family’s media business when the two started their own family.  Back in 1996 they turned their fascination for visual communications into a business of its own. They wanted their sign business to be, and serve, Kentucky’s best. 

Recently, that spirit of collaboration led us to partner with our talented and hardworking friends Donnie and Sharon Burton, located in Columbia, Ky., to create more opportunities. Working closely with Sharon and Donnie, we launched  Kentucky Sign Center-Columbia.  Now we have locations in both Eastern and Central time zones!

Today, all of us at KSC share the same goal:  To collaborate with YOU, and quickly provide YOU, our friends and clients, with high-quality signs and visual communication products.
