Desperate Enterprises - Our Story

"Why should we be in such a desperate haste to succeed and in such desperate enterprises"
Henry David Thoreau, Walden          

Desperate Enterprises

    It is impossible to describe Desperate Enterprises without paying tribute to our founder Bob Secrist. Starting in 1969, Bob dedicated himself to the intrepid life of an antique dealer, buying and selling himself to one of the most extensive collections of nostalgic advertising in the country. In the 1980's, it became obvious to Bob that the finer, more collectible advertising pieces were being sold to collectors at prices that made it impossible for anyone except the wealthiest to purchase, many to never be seen again. Bob passionately loved the old imagery and the nostalgia they represented. For this reason, he founded Desperate Enterprises with the primary mission to reproduce some of our nation's iconic advertising legacy as metal signs and make them available to all at very modest prices. Starting with just 6 images, he began selling these at flea markets and antique shows. Bob's "desperate enterprise" fed on the endless supply of desirable imagery from our collective past and he developed it into truly a global business!

Desperate Enterprises

    We are grateful for the opportunity to show you our complete line of products. Over the years, we have seen several other sign companies come and go, but none has ever brought the love, the consistent quality, and unmatched variety that you have grown to expect from Desperate Enterprises! Being the dominant force in the market that we began back in 1987 has led us through the production of over 2300 different sign designs. We are proud to currently carry over 850 sign designs, different icons and artists of America's past and present including, but not limited to DC Comics, Coca-Cola, Anheuser-Busch, Warner Bros., Jack Daniel's, Elvis Presley, Marvel Comics, Remington, Ford, Chevy and so many others. And most importantly.... all of our products have been and continue to be AMERICAN MADE!!! Compare our products to any of the others out there and you'll easily see the reason our products have won countless awards for their quality.

     There absolutely is a difference!

     While we were very saddened to lose our founder Bob who passed away in the summer of 2013, we take great pride in carrying on the standards that he established 30 years ago. He loved his "enterprise" and the legacy that Desperate has become. We will continue to work as hard as we can to carry on this great tradition.
