Over the years the Markle brothers have been featured in hundreds of articles in newspapers and magazines, and radio and TV interviews both at home and abroad. They have also received many very appreciative letters directly from their clients. See a few of them below.

“Just a quick note to let you know how much we like the new pylon sign for the Villager. You and your staff did an excellent job on the design of the sign and on producing a top quality finished product. Please thank everyone involved for me and congratulate them on a job well done!. As usual, it is a pleasure working with you”.

The Regional Municipality of York

“The Brothers Markle Inc have provided signage, wayfinding planning services & products to The Regional Municipality of York for many years. Over the period of time in which we have worked with Jack, Sam and their staff, I have been very impressed with their good service and their attention to detail on behalf of the client.

I also acknowledge that the sign products they supply are aesthetically pleasing, of a high quality, and are designed to effectively serve the purposes for which they were intended.

I would have no reservations recommending this team of professionals to serve your future signage requirements.”

Jeff Skoll, eBay

“Actually, you guys were pretty good role models for me (and not just how to pinch pennies at garage sales, Sam, which actually did come in quite handy at eBay!). I remember from my summer at The Brothers Markle how well you treated your employees — like family — as well as your community involvement. Good lessons to learn.

So thanks for the note and the offer. I’m not sure how to take you up on it, but who knows when the right opportunity will arise!”

—Jeff Skoll, eBay co-founder

Scott Thornley & Company Inc.

“We have been associated for over 15 years, in that time we have put out many fires. You are the best fireman I know in signage. I respect your work and your team. Dave and Bob were great. The work bears no mark of the speed with which it was produced.”

—Scott Thornley, President

The Chesterfield Shop

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job that your company did in the installation of the new signage at our head office and showroom at 4900 Dufferin Street, North York.
From our initial contact to the final installation, everything was handled with professionalism and promptness. Your creative was right on for the image that we attempt to project, and it appears from the reaction we are getting from customers, suppliers and staff, that the sign change is progressive and ultimately will generate sales increases and a positive look for the future.
Again to you and all your staff, thank you, and we look forward to doing business with you in the near future.”

—Steve Freedman, President

Infostream Technologies Inc

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased my partner and I were with the sign you supplied and installed for us at our new location recently. Your company was most professional and you may feel free to use my name as a reference for any of your future clients.”

—Ted Darmos, CEO

Canadian Football League

“Thank you for efforts assisting us with the design and installation of our logo in the lobby of 110 Eglinton Avenue West. We are very pleased with the results of your work and have already received a number of favourable comments from visitors to our office. Everyone on our staff also thought that it looked great.

You were right. I’ll stick to the football business and leave the sign business to you!”

—Paul Mihalik, Controller

Manulife Real Estate

“The manufacturing and installation of a computer directory at the above mentioned site was a very difficult project. The directory was to be installed adjacent to an existing Entraguard System in a space not designed for the computerized directory. Sam Markle worked very closely with me to customize the directory to fit into the existing design of the lobby vestibule. The installation was difficult due to the necessity of housing the Entraguard System and the computer directory in the same cabinet.

We were very pleased with the results and have had no problems with the unit since its installation in late 1992. The project was completed on time, on budget, and was very well received by the tenants of the building.”

—Ron Swall, Property Manager
