At the age of five, Nick Tykoski started learning the sign and decal business when he traveled with his father and grandfather across the state of Michigan.
As much as a five-year-old can, he helped with various projects, soaked in the technique of not only running a business, creating signage and decals, but also continuing the core values his grandfather started many decades before: quality and service.
Nick enrolled at Michigan State University to pursue his degree with his sights set on life outside of Mason Co. Michigan. However, he eventually found himself back in his hometown where he took over the family business. Nick now lives in Ludington with his wife Heather and their son Aiden.
In 2009, he successfully moved Tye’s Incorporated into a global manufacturer with the creation of Safety Decals.
Safety Decals has built a worldwide reputation based on quality and service; the core principals of the Tykoski family since 1947. These values, among new ones, are the basis for Safety Decals 400 percent growth over the past eight years.
Safety Decals now supplies companies throughout the United States as well as an international presence with industry leading printing services for decals, labels, signs, banners and much more. With new technology, Nick has grown Safety Decals into one of the largest decals manufacturers in the world, producing millions of decals annually.
Safety Decals 9,600 square foot headquarters is located in Ludington, Michigan with plans to expand in the near future. The office houses all critical aspects of what makes Safety Decals a success: sales, customer service, billing, production, marketing and graphic design.
