Our Story

Trace Calverley, the Creative Director of NorthStar Signs and Graphics started his design career in late 70s. He ventured into trade-show graphics and sign design and manufacturing in 1999 with the launch of ColorImaging&Design and later re-branded to Colorit Graphic Services in McKinney, Texas which has been in operation for 20 years.

In 2018, Trace felt there was a need for a professional design and sign company in the Grayson County and surrounding area. After acquiring NorthStar Signs and re-branding it as NorthStar Signs and Graphics, it is now the largest design, digital printing and sign company in Texoma area.
