Local publisher Bonner Media recently announced its grand opening as Sandpoint’s downtown source for signs and decals following the closure of Mountain Sky Signs and Printing. The company offers indoor and outdoor signage of all kinds, including banners, yard signs, posters, vinyl decals, vehicle and boat graphics, as well as professional design and installation services. Bonner Media also dabbles in independent and irregular works of art and literature “with a kick,” as the company describes it, encouraging “everyone to lighten up and laugh a little at the world around them.”
Walk-in customers are welcome as well as business accounts, and former Mountain Sky signage customers have been transferred to Bonner Media. Selkirk Press in Sandpoint will be servicing all other Mountain Sky printing and copying accounts. Either company can be contacted for assistance regarding printing orders and digital files.
Bonner Media is owned and operated by Jen Meyer, who served as Mountain Sky’s graphic artist for the past three years and hopes to make the transition as easy as possible for longtime customers. Bonner Media was founded as a publishing firm in 2019, and the new shop is located on the ground floor in the Ravenwood office building at 102 S. Fourth Ave., across from the old Mountain Sky building on Pine Street.
“After 32 years serving Sandpoint we’re all sad to see Mountain Sky go,” said Meyer. “Many of us are hurting and struggling from the events of this year and it’s up to us to keep supporting our local businesses and keep our small town alive. My goal is to continue to offer customers a level of skill and service they won’t find on the internet or at the chain stores. I’m the one handling each order from initial design to installation, so there’s no runaround or passing the buck, and most orders can be delivered in two to four days right here in Sandpoint.”
Bonner Media officially opens its doors Saturday, Jan. 2 and invites the public and all past Mountain Sky customers to stop by at their convenience to find out about the transition and receive a complimentary vinyl decal of their choice. Winter hours are Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. or by appointment. The business can be reached at 208-920-0459 (talk or text) or at [email protected] Visit bonner.media for more information.
