About Frog Signs

The Frog Signs Team

About Us

Frog’s began as a weekend hobby of Mel Dollarhide.  At car shows, Mel used his artistic ability of custom pinstriping as a way to earn additional income.  Those extra funds supported his hobby of building Harley Davidson choppers and later hot rod cars.

We frequently hear “where did the name Frog come from?”  The answer is simple.  It is a nickname given to Mel early on and it stuck!

In 1987, Doug, Mel’s son joined on and Frog’s evolved from a weekend hobby to a brick and mortar business.  The two worked side by side for over 25 years when Mel retired.  Today, Frog Signs remains a family business owned and operated by Doug.

  • “Doug with Frog Signs has been amazing for us here at Atlas Security. Doug & his team are fast, reliable, and very professional. They are quick, but they also take their time to make sure their products are very precise & absolutely correct. Frog Signs has not only wrapped our company fleet vehicles, but they have also provided us with numerous different signs, banners, and other printed materials for us to use at the office, trade shows, and many other uses.

    Atlas Security & Frog Signs share many things in common, with one of them being that we are both local & family owned/operated businesses. Thank you to Doug & his team for being a great partner with us.”

  • “There is a standard of accountability, integrity and ethics that must be met in order for me to trust a vendor to perform a service for the Sheriffs Office. Doug and the crew not only meet those standards, they exceed them.

    I appreciate their attention to the small details. Frogs does a fantastic job!”
