Madison Avenue was founded in 1993 by Steve Hall and Charlie Wiemers, two old friends who ran across each other in the DC suburbs, decades after they’d played together on their Chicago-area high school soccer team. Both were accomplished executives with successful corporate careers. Both were looking for something entrepreneurial and fun to build. Both had young families to support. Neither had ever made a sign.
But they had a vision. Where others just saw vinyl, paint, and plastic, they saw an opportunity to bring creativity and professionalism to an industry that needed a bit of both. Along the way, they discovered that their best customers shared their values: quality, reliability, and true partnership. It has been 25 years since Steve and Charlie launched Madison Avenue, but we feel like we are just getting started.
Madison Avenue is 100% focused on meetings and events. We don’t make birthday banners, business cards, or Beware of Dog signs. Instead, we focus relentlessly on bringing meeting and event planners the finest assortment of meeting-support products and graphics to creatively accessorize and brand any event.
We are proud to count many of the nation’s leading corporations, non-profits, and meeting management companies as our clients. We have earned that by listening closely, developing functional, value-based products, standing by our promises, and always delivering on time.
