Paul Fanning, owner of PK Sign & Graphics
How long have you been in business?
Six and a half years, we opened in June of 2010.
Why did you choose Anadarko for your business?
We’ve lived in the community for over 20 years. This is a business that we can operate during our retirement.
In your words describe your business:
We print about just anything vinyl from decals to stickers and banners and even large aluminum signs. We also have a personalized product line where you can customize coffee mugs, portraits on aluminum and other specialty gifts.
What is your biggest challenge as a business owner?
Our biggest challenge is probably just to keep the doors open with the way the economy has been. Especially, when you consider people shopping online. It can be challenging to get people to shop local and keep our tax dollars in Anadarko.
What is the most rewarding part about your job?
When people come in and need something that we can help them with. We like to make people happy with the job we’ve done for them.
If you had a magic wand to fix anything in your business or the city what would you do?
I’d like to see Anadarko to start growing again and which would make the town more prosperous. We would love to continue growing this business into a really big business. Do something that would encourage kids to stay in Anadarko after graduation or to move back if they went away for college.
Why is it important to join the Anadarko Chamber?
The chamber of commerce helps promote all the businesses in town. They keep the small businesses informed about the happenings in town.
Anything you would like to share with our audience?
We have a new product line of personalized products that make good one of a kind Christmas gifts and can be personalized with family pictures or business logos.
