40 Years In Business

On January 15th, 1982 Custom Graphics, Inc. opened its doors for business on 912 Page Drive with 5 eager employees. Co-founders Paul Paxton and Jeff Estes worked together with their team to innovate and create top of the line screen printed parts for growing agriculture manufacturers.

As the agriculture industry in North Dakota ebbed and flowed, so did Custom Graphics. Just a few years after incorporation, Paxton took full ownership of the company. When demand for screen printed decals was low, Paul expanded the business into other signage and printing industries. He and his team wrapped vehicles, installed and repaired exterior signage, made neon signs, painted signs, and offered many other services.

Paxton's success continued as he moved his business to a much larger space and brought his loyal team along with him. Over time, Custom Graphics expanded to occupy the entire building at 2501 3rd Avenue North, and on top of that, built a massive installation bay on the west side.

After the untimely passing of beloved Paul Paxton in 2016, general manager Zach Paxton took over the family business. Since that time, Custom Graphics has taken great strides towards becoming a large scale digital printing operation, maintaining success in the screen printing manufacturing industry and increasing the types of signage we create, install and service.

After 40 years in business, Custom Graphics, Inc. serves a large and growing customer base, ships products all over the world, employs 50 people and is proud to be a part of the Fargo Moorhead community.
