About Uptown Signs

Serving the Auburn community with quality service and products for over 20 years.

Family Founded, Owned, and Operated

Jerry Kopp

As with many small businesses, we started out of our garage. Over 20 years ago we were painting window splashes (mainly for car lots), carved oak signs, and puzzles being sold at Denio’s and craft fairs around the area. In early 1997 we opened the Uptown Signs & Graphics storefront on High Street in Auburn, CA.

Jerry Kopp, founder of Uptown Signs, previously sold automobiles. Signs went hand-in-hand with some of the needs in the car industry, and Jerry did artwork as a hobby, so he thought why not try to make a living out of it?. After many harsh years in the car business Jerry gave it up and started Uptown Signs. Now mostly retired, Jerry continues to do artwork on the side, displaying some of it in the shop.
