About Us

Husband and wife family team

Xpert Sign Tools owner, Josh Shearer, has spent more than 30 years in the architectural sign business. While working as a shop owner, it became evident that producing top-quality signs required top-quality tools. It was this need that inspired Josh to develop the unique, industry-specific tools manufactured by Xpert Sign Tools today. 

When it came time for Josh to move on and sell his sign business, he realized the tools he'd created still functioned like new after six years of heavy use; these tools withstood the test of time and could be utilized in every shop around the world, creating consistent corners and holes time and time again! This led him to launch Xpert Sign Tools.

Today, Josh and his wife, Crystal, are the owners and operators of Xpert Sign Tools and pride themselves on tools made entirely in the United States. They've worked with some of the best machinists around to create products that meet only the highest quality standards. Whether you have a large-scale sign facility or a small franchise business, these tools will fit your needs.

The Original Xpert Corner Rounder

It started as a simple drawing on a napkin and eventually became the first Xpert Tool!

More than 16 years after that napkin drawing turned into a reality, we now have a line of quality tools that we sell around the world. Each tool is proudly made in the USA.
