If there’s one thing that Guy Langevin knows, it’s how to take an idea and broadcast it with maximum exposure and impressive delivery. He is the proud founder of AG Event Graphics and the work produced by his team can be seen all over the vehicles, walls and signage of local businesses. Guy’s work however isn’t strictly local. His skill has been called upon for an impressive number of projects in both Canada and the US. Most notably, his signature was all over the Vancouver Olympics and more recently, he was called to wrap a WestJet tailfin in an impressive, colourful, tartan.
Guy and his team boast an impressive list of credentials and specialty services, and are the only vetted ‘3M Preferred Installer’ operating in Sarnia-Lambton. With a current team of 7 predicted to grow measurably in the coming year, the only way is up for AG Event Graphics. Guy has a keen sense of what works for his clients, and their satisfaction is his goal. He has been in the business for over 30 years and has perfected his own personal brand of service. He chose Sarnia for its proximity to clientele on both sides of the border.
When asked what his biggest motivator is, Guy offers “the satisfaction of success is a great motivator. The epitome of success is building something from nothing”, and he has done it. Quality and service are absolutes for the entire team at AG Event Graphics and the power of those successes is reflected in the strength of their reputation. When most of your business comes from referrals and product recognition – you know you have done something right. He also offers some sage words for other entrepreneurs: “Know your market, know your competitors, know your product – and keep your eye on the numbers!”
As a new business starting in an unknown city, Guy approached the Sarnia-Lambton Business Development Corporation to see about expanding his business and acquiring more advanced equipment. His experience was incredibly positive and he was impressed with the expertise that was readily available “They can take a great idea and coach you from start to finish- execution, planning….they will really show you all sides of the possibilities”. This means you can anticipate where trouble spots may arise and identify strengths and focus before taking the leap to small business owner.
In addition to the more visible work seen on WestJet and the many vehicles in town that have been wrapped by Guy and his team, AG Event Graphics offers a full line of services including graphic production, graphic project management, event management, and many basic print needs including signage and banners. They are also the premier distributer of Penguin tents and dealers for Testrite and Prism Trade Show Lighting. Sarnia-Lambton residents should expect to see a lot more of this up and coming powerhouse in our midst. The entire team is bursting with ambition and ideas, and there is more creative fire to come!
