Steve & Barb Shortreed...Fergus, Ontario, Canada

Steve Shortreed and his wife, Barbara, registered The SignMan as a business in 1975. Working in his hometown of Fergus, Ontario, Canada, Steve and Barbara eventually discovered the Letterhead Movement.

The Shortreeds also discovered the frustrations that often come with running their own business, everything from losing big accounts and being forced to lay off friends, to having to deal with life-changing health problems and re-discovering the importance of family and friends in making a life.

In late 1994, Steve & Barb launched a website dedicated to a group of people who call themselves Letterheads & Pinheads called The Letterhead Website. That story is here too.
