Since 1980, Ocean Graphics has produced thousands of premium quality signs, designed and crafted by master sign-maker Kevin Barnard. Prior to the digital age, all of Kevin’s signs were hand-carved and lettered from hand-drawn designs. With new technologies now available, Ocean Graphics offers precision-carved and full-color process signs and prints, still showcasing Kevin’s expertise in sign design.
In the early days, Mark Barnard joined his brother Kevin at Ocean Graphics, heading up the screenprinting department. For several years, Ocean Graphics serviced the community with high-quality screenprinted goods, many designed by Mark himself. Sadly, Mark passed away in 2015 and the loss to the family, the local community and the business has been profound.
With the help of talented and dedicated employees and friends, Ocean Graphics was able to continue offering this service until it was transitioned to its new home in September 2021. We are pleased to announce the opening of Crooked Barn Press, owned and operated by beloved former employee and graphic designer Matt Maher who worked for many years with Mark and Kevin. As our “other brother”, Matt knows every aspect of screenprinting and design and will continue to provide the same quality service that Ocean Graphics customers have come to expect. We highly recommend reaching out to Crooked Barn Press for all of your screenprinting and embroidery needs.
A scholarship has been set up in Mark’s memory, awarded to a graduating Wells High School senior every June. For more information, please see the Mark P. Barnard Memorial Scholarship page.
