Accent Sign & Awning


To give you the highest quality product and customer service at the best price

Our History

Family-owned and operated since 1979, Accent Sign & Awning has grown its business to serve customers nationwide from its 50,000-square-foot facility in Houston. Founded by Victoria Giannukos as Houston Canvas & Awning Co., the business purchased neighboring Accent Sign & Graphics and became Accent Sign & Awning Co. in 2010. Today her sons, John, Dimitri and George, manage the growing company.

The family believes that customer service, on-time delivery and quality products separate Accent Sign & Awning from its competitors. The family also owns Houston Uniform & Apparel at the same location, giving customers a complete line of branded, handcrafted products, from signage and awnings to work uniforms and corporate apparel.
