Ron Baechle Advertising Inc.


I've always had a passion for the arts. I love being creative, designing, drawing, creating graphics and playing music. This has followed me my whole life. I've been married for 30 years and have 3 wonderful daughters. My oldest daughter works with me full time, creating design ideas from begining conception through project completion. I enjoy sports, especially hockey, performing music in my band, and love being around family, good friends, and motivated people.

Over 25 years in business, we are a complete one-stop shop, working with other vendors to get your job complete without having to shop around. We create company logos, design brochures, letterehead, business cards, slogans, outdoor identity signage, directional signs, subdivision entry signs, sandblasting, CNC routing, window lettering vinyl and hand painted. There are almost no limitations to what we can do for you to provide all your advertising needs.


Experience

After attending Technical Training School for Commercial Art in 1977 and graduating top in my class, I worked breifly for a company doing technical drawings. From there, I received training from a sign artist learning the art of hand lettering with calligraphy pens and brushes. After this training, I started my own business in signs and graphics in 1980. Since then I've expanded into airbrushing, sandblasting, wood carving and glass etching before vinyl computer graphics came into the industry. Within the last 10 years we have expanded in the areas of Photoshop, Illustrator, and In Design along with vinyl graphics, silkscreening, and digital printing.


Just For Fun

Over the years, along with owning and running a business, my free time has included playing drums in a band (Sideline) once a month for a St. Louis organization called ARC for mentally challenged children. This has been going strong for 29 years and counting. I also play classic rock music in another band called "Jam Central Station" performing in and around the St. Louis area.

You might already know me if you're a hockey fan! I have enjoyed being "THE TOWEL MAN" at the St. Louis Blues games. This is something I started here 21 years ago after attending a Peoria Riverman game. The tradition of counting goals here has remained strong and is something I have lots of fun doing. I'm just waiting for the day that we all get to parade and celebrate a Stanley Cup! Let's Go Blues!
