SafetyDecals.com, a division of Tye’s Incorporated, is the third generation of sign companies in the Tykoski family and was created in 2009 by Nicholas Tykoski, owner and CEO of Tye’s Incorporated. All current manufacturing is done in one facility at 5236 W. First Street in Ludington, Michigan.
In 1948, Nicholas’ grandfather, Marion “Tye” Tykoski, began a family tradition of sign making by starting his own company, Tye’s Neon Sales and Service. Prior to creating Tye’s Neon Sales and Service, Marion served in the US Army from February 1943 to March 1946. After returning home, Marion attended the Chicago Institute of the Arts, learning the art of creating signs. After receiving his diploma in June 1948, Marion purchased a 1934 Crane Ford Pickup truck to start his new endeavor.
Tye’s quickly flourished and built a strong customer base that centered on quality and service. This tradition was passed down to Marion’s son, David Tykoski. David furthered the family’s sign making capabilities by growing the business regionally with the advancement of technology and a strong dedication to hard work; implementing his father’s core values of quality and service. David expanded into the decal business in 1984 when he purchased one of the first sign computers available, an Apple IIe. David went on to create his own entity “Tye’s Signs Incorporated” which continued to grow in the sign and decal industry.
Nicholas Tykoski, at the age of five started learning the sign business. He traveled with his father and grandfather across the State of Michigan to work on various projects and learn all aspects of the family business. Nicholas attended Michigan State University, returning home to work at the family sign business. In 2009 Nicholas successfully moved Tye’s Incorporated into a global manufacturer with the acquisition of SafetyDecals.com.
