MakeSigns.com, MakeStickers.com, and MakePins.com are sister sites and operated by Graphicsland, Inc. I worked at Graphicsland for 6.5 years and was the Senior Web Designer when I left the Chicago-based company to move to Portland, OR in the fall of 2011. On MakeSigns.com users can customize templates online and see an instant preview to create their own signs, banners and posters. Users can also upload their own poster design to be printed, as is the case with Scientific Poster customers (Scientific Poster sub-section of website shown in screenshot), a particular niche of MakeSigns.com clientele.
Press release about major updates on July 26th, 2011. I initiated and led this project to not only get the appearance of the site up to modern times, but also the usability.
