Loretta Johnson

- Never Met a Dog She Didn’t Love
- Afflicted With a Touch of Sarcasm

Owner / Production

Loretta’s perfect life consists of lots of dogs to love and a daily dose of body shaking laughter. 

Loretta brings 15+ years of experience as a business owner running day to day operations and a lifetime of experience as a dog lover. Her focus is daily business operations, production & printing and of course weekly janitorial duties.

In her off time, you can find her walking her small horses (also known as dogs), spending time with friends, reading a good book or golfing.


Jim Johnson

- Professional Amateur Golfer
- In Charge of Golf Course PR

Owner / Production

Jim’s perfect life consists of golfing daily…the end.

Jim has 15+ years of experience as a business owner and manager. He oversees public relations on the golf course, and you can find him at his “office” on any hole, on any golf course, on any given day in the summer. When mother nature decides its time for Jim to attend to his paying job, you can find him running the laser engraver and CNC machines for Kootenay Signs.

In his off time, you can find him chasing a ball around the golf course, fishing or driving the backcountry


Julie Winter

- Self-Proclaimed Serial Snacker
- Meme Queen

Graphic designer / Production

Julie’s perfect life consists of endless snacks, funny memes and life outdoors. But when life isn’t perfect, and she has to come to work she brings with her 15+ years of experience and passion for graphic design and the sign industry. She loves the creative process of working with a customer to bring their ideas to life or to bring the ideas to the customer.

In her off time, you can find Julie running into burning buildings (for the Sparwood Fire Department), spending time outdoors and collecting the perfect rocks to paint on.
