Let’s Start The Process
At Lykins-Signtek, we never forget that our business was built on your success. We are committed to help you make profitable investments with a lasting impact, beat your competition, win markets, and delight your customers. With in-house manufacturing of custom signs, mailboxes, and street signage, we provide everything you need to make your development, community, business, or event stand out from the rest. Every day, our staff applies all their experience, knowledge and creativity to prove that we are the best at what we do and build lasting relationships. Almost everything we sell is manufactured at our facility so we have full control over the finished product. Most of our signs and all mailboxes, street signs, and traffic signs are built of fully welded aluminum with automotive-grade finishes for maximum strength, durability, and appeal. Nobody does our business with greater dedication to quality or a stronger commitment to your satisfaction. We have been rewarded with great customer loyalty and our business has expanded its reach in the footsteps of our developer and builder clients.
Lykins-Signtek covers all of Southwest Florida, from Sarasota to Marco Island, serving Collier County, Lee County, Charlotte County, Sarasota County, and Manatee County.
Our story starts with two neighboring businesses often working side-by-side on different parts of the same projects. Lykins Development Specialties was a Lykins family company specializing in the production of custom mailboxes for local developers and builders. Signtek made the signage those developers and realtors relied upon to market the projects. Their capabilities complemented each other and the decision to join forces was almost inevitable – both believing a one-stop solution would be beneficial to their business and to the community. After 20 years of growth under the leadership of the two founders, testimony to their enduring and successful partnership, Lykins-Signtek has firmly established itself as the cornerstone of the Southwest Florida custom signage and mailbox industry, and the time was right to pass the baton. In October 2019, a new owner acquired the assets of Lykins-Signtek, and swiftly embarked on a strategy of modernization and regional expansion. In January 2020, the “new” Lykins Signtek closed on the purchase of SignMasters (aka Artisan Signs) of Nokomis, FL, whose local offices and production capabilities firmly establish Lykins Signtek as a leading sign provider in Venice, Sarasota and adjacent areas.
It’s been a rewarding and sometimes challenging ride. Along with our clients, our business has enjoyed the booms and weathered the busts of our local economy. We are thankful for the long-term relationships that have made this possible and we believe they are rooted in our small business values – do the right thing, do it well, keep our promises, treat our employees like family and our clients like friends. As a member of the International Sign Association we strive for the highest professionalism in our trade, and we maintain current UL and electrical sign contractor registrations for your safety and peace of mind. Last but not least, we are fully committed to your satisfaction and stand by everything we do.
From all of us at Lykins Signtek: Thank you for your business.
Lykins-Signtek’s team of nearly 50 employees can efficiently tackle just about any size or scope of project, from a handful of decals to comprehensive community and street signage and custom street lighting with matching mailboxes for a major real estate development. On any given day, we typically move dozens of jobs through different stages of design, production, or installation. We can draw on a vast knowledge base of previous designs and manufacturing experience to make your product stand out and last, while minimizing the potential for errors or oversights.
Our capabilities include 3D-routing, welding, spray- and hand-painting, digital printing and automated cutting, in materials ranging from metals to wood, plastics to specialty sign substrates. Our expertise with these materials and processes is second to none and we are able to combine them for a truly unique design that is guaranteed to set you apart. We use premium, environmentally protected low-voltage LED technology in all our lit signs and Lykins-Signtek’s electrical license and UL-approved electrical sign production demonstrate our commitment to your – and our employees’ – safety.
We have a full-time permitting specialist on staff to stay on top of applications, inspections, and approvals, as well as a community mailbox specialty team to ensure seamless coordination with the US Postal Service.
Our installation teams not only install our in-house products but can also handle any type of signage for national brands, including site surveys and permitting as needed.
Most importantly, however, are the work ethic and dedication to quality exhibited every day by our talented people.
Since 1998, Lykins-Signtek has established itself as the leading full-service provider for major developers, builders, property managers, HOA’s, realtors, businesses, and institutions in Southwest Florida. Additionally, we have helped countless homeowners with mailbox repairs or replacements. Our employees take pride in pointing out “we did that” to their family and friends, and would be hard-pressed to drive anywhere without opportunities to do so. Here’s a sample of some of our clients:
"Thank you and your team for a great job on the Mercato Kilwins exterior signs! Cant wait for the vinyl to be installed and see how all looks at night!! Again, awesome work."
"Thank you again, the sign is awesome! We have received so many compliments. Cars literally stop in front to look up at it."
"We worked with Lykins-Signtek for several months in 2020 to renovate all three of our community ground signs in Aqualane Shores. Due to the fact that our community is within the City of Naples we had various limitations on what we could do with the original signs and Lykins-Signtek did an amazing job of renovating and updating our existing signs within budget. Lykins-Signtek was very easy to work with and knew the ins and outs of the permitting process. In addition to the three large ground signs, Lykins-Signtek also did a fabulous job updating all of our small community posts signs around the neighborhood."
"Just a quick note to commend the installer on the job last week for Villa Mar Bonita Springs. Michael did a great job communicating to me about placement of the signs and sent photos throughout the install, which was extremely helpful! Great work, thanks!"

I really appreciated him doing that! "
"Jim, our new sign for Steamboat Bend in The Landings looks great, and the installation guys did a good job. Thanks for your work in getting it done! It was a pleasure working with you."
"Sharon – I haven’t taken the time to follow up with you since the painting project concluded several weeks ago. I want to thank you and your staff for a quality job and a job well done. Russ, in particular, was a pleasure to work with. He checked in every day, was pleasant and very accommodating to myself and to my hardscapes Assistant. You are lucky to have Russ and we look forward to working with you again in the future."

"The Lykins crew just finished the installation of two sign posts on our property and we couldn’t be happier.

The business process was smooth and professional, Jim happily answered all of my ongoing questions, and the installers were great to work with. An excellent experience from start to finish. "
"Just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how awesome Mike has been for us. We’ve had two big clubhouses going and have had inspectors asking for misc items here and there and he’s been really on top of getting these items done for us.

"Dear Lykins-Signtek, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your recent assistance in getting me some signs and decals made. These were needed for a fire inspection and the urgency in getting these for us was critical for the completion of a project. I knew after dealing with your company for over a decade that I could turn to Lykins-Signtek to make this happen, and you did. You have always done a great job with our vinyl logos on our vehicle fleet as well as business signage. I was equally impressed by how you handled my little emergency as well. Job well done “as usual” and thanks again. "

The quality of work is also top notch with salesmen that are always willing to help. I will continue to use them with confidence. "

I am very pleased with Lykins-Signtek. "
