About Us

We came to be because a kid couldn't stop doodling in class.

 Owner/Operator REIN BONTREGER
        Rein always loved to draw. As a kid, he would turn zeros in math class into tires, and would draw countless muscle cars on papers that were meant to be for homework. You might say that art has always been in his blood.
After graduating from high school, he got an associate's degree in Electrical Engineering from ITT Tech in Fort Wayne, and shortly after married his high school sweetheart, Suzie. A few years later, in 1985, he left his job to start Reinforcements Design. Over the last 20+ years, the business has grown and expanded beyond the scope that Rein ever dared to imagine.
        Today, the company is still run by Rein and Suzie, and employs a handful of workers, some of whom have been with the company for nearly twenty years. As a family-run business, Reinforcements Design adheres to family values and principles and strives to provide excellent service for each and every customer by offering flexible deadlines and customized logo design and project planning, tailored to each customer's need. Because Reinforcements Design is a small business itself, they cater to the needs of other small business, as well as larger companies, organizations, and educational institutions. No order is too small or too large.


        And we use every inch of the space! Whether we're lettering semi trucks, putting graphics on a billboard-sized sign, or screen-printing a large order of shirts, it pays to have space. (Mainly for our sanity of mind.)
