How Drumfire Graphics got its name. - Long Version
Drumfire Graphics was created in 2009 after Mike Gholson packed his bags from Indianapolis, Indiana and took a 8,000 mile road trip by himself.
He saved up a bunch of money and took two months off and figured out how he was going to start a sign business. It was a great time in his little honda civic. He went from Indy to Chicago through South Dakota. He was able to see the "Bad Lands and Mt. Rushmore" then went through Wyoming where he saw his first real mountain. He was kicked out of a camping ground just south of Yellowstone National Park. He was told after setting up his campsite he was illegally camping. Mike stayed in Denver with some friends for a week then went through Roswell, New Mexico and through the great state of Texas. He had to visit "Gholson, Texas" which is named after his family. Not much was there but it's still cool to see his last name on everything. Mike eventually made his way to his new home Tampa, Florida.
Once Mike made it to Tampa he finally figured out the name. Back in the 1800's there were a couple of Indian Tribes that lived around Tampa Bay. They use to use the phrase "Drum" for Thunder and "Fire" or "Fire Sticks" for Lighting. At the time Tampa was the lightning capital of the world. So he thought to himself Drumfire (Thunder and Lightning) fits the bill. After a year of living in Tampa and starting up his business he had a lot of work coming from his home town of Indianapolis, Indiana. Mike decided to move back and get to work.
Work he did, for 5 years Mike went out on his own and learned many things about the sign industry. He had experience in the sign industry for 15 years prior but owning your own business is a whole other monster. Once 2014 came around he discovered Etsy. He also discovered the need for homeowners wanting custom wall decals. Mike knew he was fast and efficient so he thought he would give it a try while doing all his other sign orders. Ten months later Etsy took over his workflow. It literally became 90% of the work that was coming in. Mike started turning local sign customers away because of all the online wall decal orders. Once he got to this point he decided to just focus on "Custom Home Wall Decor". That is how Drumfire started and got its name.
