Who is Visual Communications Group?

We get asked that question a lot, and understandably so. In the age of online companies popping up overnight and then disappearing just as fast, people want a little background so they can trust that we're going to be here tomorrow and into the future.

In the beginning

Long before we were Signsearch, SignsearchPRO or Visual Communications Group, we were in the sign business, deep in the trenches, searching for sign companies across the country. Way before the internet, we were using directories in the back of trade publications or sifting through stacks of yellow pages from various cities, searching for a sign contractor that fit our specific needs. It was a long tedious process, and we thought... "there has to be a better way to do this".

And in 1999, Signsearch.com was born on a desktop in Vancouver, BC, Canada as the first web-based search engine specifically designed to connect sign buyers with sign companies across the US and Canada. Signsearch was revolutionary, and in no time at all, we presented thousands of sign companies to a rapidly growing online audience. Suddenly finding the right sign company was easy.

Dawn of a new era

After a few self-congratulatory pats on the back for creating something as awesome as Signsearch.com, we realized that we were pretty darn good at this online software thing, and we wondered what else we could create to benefit the sign and graphics industry. So, we embarked down a path of becoming a Software as a Service (SaaS) company and changed our name to Visual Communications Group.

As our product offerings began to grow, so did our need for talented, creative individuals. And we found them... scattered all over... from British Columbia to Minnesota, Missouri, Ontario, and Florida. Our base became Minnesota, but, with so many staff scattered all over, we wondered if it could work to our advantage to take our entire company remote. After all, quality of life of our employees has always been a priority at VCG. After much deliberation, we transitioned from flex work and telecommuting to a completely remote company. We love to brag about that fact that, at VCG, you can work from literally anywhere you want (with a good Internet connection of course). Plan on residing in the Caribbean for the winter? No problem. Summers in Ontario? Extended trip overseas? Cool. Work hard, get rewards.

Customer satisfaction at our core

We know that keeping customers happy is the best way to, well... keep customers. That's why we pride ourselves on our award-winning customer support (ok we haven't actually won any awards, but we should, it's top notch!). Our support team is at the ready to answer any questions or help in any way possible. Take a look for yourself what our customers have to say about us www.vcgcorporate.com/customers/.

The future is bright

At VCG, we're not content resting on our laurels and lose the sensation of the back patting. We’d rather continue to exceed expectations and drive results. We are a company full of fun, energetic, creative and talented individuals who are constantly searching for ways to improve our services. Our success is heavily dependent on our ability to work as a team to provide the best-in-class support and services to thousands of clients throughout the United States and Canada. Although we've grown into a much larger company, we believe that the small achievements are just as important as the big milestones. So, we're going to keep moving it forward with new ways to bring value to our customers through innovation and advancements in technology.

If you think that working at VCG sounds as cool as it is, then we’d love to have you be part of our team. We’re always looking for people that are passionate about making a difference and being recognized for contributing to our efforts.
