JOHN & BARBARA
de JONG

Owners / Marketing / Administration

Our philosophy of “Valuable People, Valuable Relationships, creating Valuable Results” are not just cliche words to us. They are the foundation we have built our 34 years of marriage upon and the guidelines by which we have raised our 3 sons.

Barbara’s 17 years as a stay at home mom have undoubtedly equipped her for customer service as much as John’s 40+ years in sales, marketing and management with companies like Ingram Micro, Epson and the Pattison Automotive Group.
But don’t take our word for it, check out our Google Reviews and see if we’re the kind of company you want to do business with!

Alley Kat Signs History

1986

Did you know Alley Kat Signs was started in historical Fan Tan Alley?

That’s where the name “Alley Kat” comes from. From our humble beginnings in a back alley Lorali Burns pioneered our business based on hand crafted signs with prompt turnaround and fair pricing.

1993

Don and Cathy Prevost purchased the business when Lorali retired for health reasons. Don and Kathy built upon the existing the foundation expanding from painted signs and 1 vinyl cutter all the way into digital printing and dimensional letters.

2009

John and Barbara de Jong, another husband and wife partnership purchased the business from Don and Cathy (also moving into semi retirement).

2013

We expanded into a larger renovated space on Bridge St. Updated equipment including wide format printers, laminators and 3 plotters, large format cutters and more allow increased productivity with the efficiency of a smaller staff.
