It's Our Passion
To Help Local Businesses

Look Their Best




Paul Headshot

Paul, our CEO and founder has an extensive background in engineering, a trade he continues to instill in Heartland Design's business signage. “It’s really exciting for me,” Paul adds, “to create designs and develop concepts that just aren’t available elsewhere.” We are also a small business. "I think it’s important that people understand we are not a big corporate entity from somewhere out of state. We are a locally-owned family business. We work one-on-one with customers, and it’s just a real privilege to be able to do that.” Heartland Design brings cost-effective custom creations to a wide array of companies. From hospitals to business startups to real estate offices. “We’re excited to bring state-of-the-art design and manufacturing of business signage and décor to Richland County, Central Ohio and beyond. Just like countless other businesses in Richland County, Paul and his family are doing it together, bringing a strong quality and trust to the table when working with clients. “Being from the local area and having grown up here, it’s a real honor to service local businesses.”

HDC Team Picture


Heartland Design Concepts started out as a division of Forbes Rehab Services, providing in-house printing, product labeling, and business signage needs. In 2016 Heartland Design Concepts was spun off as an independent company and moved into our current 12,000 square foot facility. To set ourselves apart as a leading provider of business signage, décor and branding products and services, we assembled a professional staff of designers, sales and application specialists, engineers, and production specialists with a combined experience of over 60 years.

Fully In-House Production

Exclusivity is something Heartland Design has honed in on in recent years. By investing in state-of-the-art machinery, like UV printers, roll-to-roll printers, a large-format heat-press, and one of the largest format precision lasers in the area, Paul and the Heartland Design Concepts team have moved beyond the area to help businesses grow. “We are doing both the designs and manufacturing right here in Mansfield, in this facility, and we have total control” Paul adds. “It gives us better quality. It gives us more creative designs and it gives us better turnaround. By not having another person or another company in the supply chain, our costs are more effective.”

Custom Design

Each project is a collaboration where we work directly with you ensuring you get the attention needed to produce unique signs. Our in-store Idea Center is just one of the many steps the company takes to elevate itself above local competition. “The Idea Center is a place full of tons of products that can help spark creativity for our customers,” Kristin says. “You can come in and we can design something custom for you. It doesn’t have to be something that’s only available on our website. We can really get that ‘wow’ factor for our customers.” Capitalizing on that, Heartland Design can create virtually anything for its customers.
