             If you’ve strolled through the New York City Theatre District and gazed at all the marquees, billboards, wall dis-
        plays, flags and banners, then chances are you’ve seen the creative handiwork of King Displays Inc. The Manhattan,
        NY-based graphics house now outputs about 90 percent of all the Broadway show signage being produced.
             King Displays opened for business 71 years as a photo shop; farming out film and negatives to a contractor.
        In the 1990s the company decided to bring the printing in-house, and in that time, has expanded into wide-format
        digital printing.
             “We are always ready to deliver any job, and we are consistently able to meet our clients’ expectations for top
        image quality in the fastest turnaround time,” said Wayne Sapper, president of King Displays Inc. “Most of our cli-
        ents provide us artwork, but the jobs themselves can have as little as five working days to print, install, and be ready
        to go by opening night. Sometimes it can get a little hectic, but we always get it done before the curtain goes up.”
             “We will like to keep our clients in the loop throughout the entire project, from its inception to its completion.
        It is our goal to give them everything they need to meet their deadlines and to ensure that are totally satisfied when
        the work is complete,” he said.
