About the OWNER
"I don't want to be known as a sign shop.  My goal is to help clients build there brand with a unique, high quality design and graphic that fits their industry and allows them to grow their business."
Shawn Mapes is the founder and sole Owner of PRODIGY DESIGNS.  He graduated from Vanguard High School in Ocala, Florida.  After playing two season of collegiate bvaseball in  community college he received his AA degree from Lake City Community College.   He decided to put baseball aside to pursue his degree in Art and enrolled at the Savannah College of Art and Design where he received a B.F.A in Product Design.  After spending several years desiging products for companies Shawn and his wife decided to make a move to the Forgotten Coat in Florida's Panhandle.  There he found a new direction and became a Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of Tallahassee.  With the change in career he found he had time to do something on his days off from the Fire Department  and Prodigy was born.  

Shawn started in the sign business at 15 years old sweeping floors.  He decided he need to learn more to be valuable and make more money.  By the time he was in college he went from sweeping floors to buidlign moulds, metal fabrication, CNC and CAD design among other skills.  He worked on projects during that for the Daytona Speedway, Disney's Magic Kingdom and the Orlando Internaitional Airport.

With a over 20 years experience in  signs, a degree from SCAD and talent for art and design, he new he could provide a quality product in the vehicle wrap industry.  With a little help from a friend at the Fire Department, Shawn took the risk and started Prodigy Designs. 

Today Prodigy has been in business almost 7 years and continues to grow its business throughout the state.   Prodigy specializes in custom vehicle and boat wraps, as well as custom graphics and logos.  Shawn is a certified installer and still preferes to do all of the design and installation personally.  "I dont't want to be known as a sign shop.  My goal is to help clients build there brand with a unique, high quality design  and graphic that fits their industry and allows them to grow their business.   A vehicle wrap has become one of the best forms of adverstisement you could ask for.  A one time cost that can allow someone to advertise everyday they are on the road for years to come. 

 
​​Prodigy Wraps currently uses only the highest of quality Avery and 3M products for their wraps.   "I may not always be the cheapest, but I strive to make sure that the customer gets what they pay for.  I still design and install each wrap personally.  I am able to focus on the needs of each client and ensure that the quality is at the highest level."
