What most people don’t know about Emory is he is a home brewer. If he had to stick to one kind of brew for the rest of his life it would be a crisp Pilsner.

Mark thinks the name change from Graphic Works to Professional Sign Services will open the door for new and more opportunities. He thinks Graphic Works only expressed one facet of what we do as a company. PSS opens the door to all of our other capabilities.

Chad's favorite part about being on the PSS and CL team is getting to experience the satisfaction in our customer's eyes after we help them with their needs.

Katie joined the PSS team in August of 2015. She is a Chattanooga native and loves how the city has the nuances of a big city, but still has a backdrop of nature. She went to UTC where she gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design.
In her free time Katie likes to spend time with her cat named Butterfly and working on other art related projects. She also enjoys posting interests on her blog when she isn’t being a production mastermind in the office. Most people don’t know this, but we blame her incredible skills on her being left-handed. Within the next five years Katie would like to get away from American soil and go backpacking through Europe.
Katie loves her job because it doesn’t require being behind a computer all day. She likes being able to physically make her own work and see the outcomes.
