About

May Advertising Old Gas SignMay Advertising was founded in 1946 by the late Richard R. May, in a garage, catering to local firms in and around Fort Worth, Texas.

Our first big break came when an area oil company approached us to create and produce a changeable pricing system for gasoline retailing. This development led to a nationwide system for all gasoline retailers in the U.S. and many other parts of the world.  It also made us the world’s largest manufacturer of aluminum gas price signs, a position we still hold today.

From this foundation, our e-Commerce/Catalog Division emerged. We produce an array of products and sell hundreds of supplies for 8,000 to 10,000 customers who operate gasoline retail stations, convenience stores, fence and security companies. 

Today, we are known as May Group and work with some of the world’s largest brands, but we still proudly serve the industries we started with.

We are located in a modern 140,000 facility, in Fort Worth, Texas, that houses all the latest technologies for printing, cutting and embossing.

We make it here in America. Why should it matter to you?

We take responsibility to help make the planet a bit better.

And it saves you money.  We figure out how to do the most with what we have to keep costs as low as possible.  We control cost through recycling materials and we purchase aluminum that is 99% post-consumer recycled material.   We also take pride in optimizing any design to reduce material consumption in the first place.
