THE SG WAY
CEO Frank Hancock
For Frank and Linda Hancock, the idea was simple: serve as the go-to resource to the city’s many professional and amateur sports events. We soon realized something important: the hustle, the dedication and the quality that worked well in sports-crazed Indianapolis also worked well for other clients across North America.
Over the last 30-plus years, Sport Graphics has developed into an enterprise that is a multifaceted provider of products and services to the local and national sports and events industries. Sport Graphics offers products related to event signage, product fulfillment and printing. While the company is highly proficient in managing large-scale, time-sensitive events, it also excels at providing products to universities and companies, which operate on less time-sensitive schedules. Sport Graphics’ unique suite of services, in combination with the explosion of funding in collegiate and professional athletics, has positioned the company at the forefront of a newly developing industry – sporting signage and décor. The company’s commitment to excellence and on-time service has been rewarded with multiple new annual events and the enhancement of long-term relationships with existing clients.
