One Austin company is helping families with loved ones deployed overseas celebrate their homecoming in style. BuildASign.com lets people design customized signs, banners and more to welcome home their military members.
Over the past three years, the company has given away over 190,000 banners for military homecomings. Family members can add a personal picture, special message, or any other tribute they want to the banners. The company does not charge for the banners used as part of a military homecoming celebration, all they ask is that you pay for shipping.
“It was a nice thing to do for a few people when we started it, and the way it has spread and the way we have touched so many thousands of people is just awesome,” says Andy Knopp, Director of Corporate Development at BuildASign.com.
The company’s banners retail for $40, and they have given away almost $7 million in retail worth of banners.
