Barb & Corey

With more adventure in their spirits than money in the bank, Barb & Corey decided to embark on a business venture, and purchased Silvertip Graphics in October 2011! Silvertip originally began doing business in Julie Halverson’s (Founder) garage back in 1995. As the founder of Silvertip, Julie took it upon herself to continue to help guide all of the future owners after her, during their journey’s with Silvertip. During that time all of the previous owners did their part in building the Silvertip name up as a reliable and customer oriented business.

Once Barb & Corey took over they quickly realized that they needed to go to work to learn the ins and outs of the signage business! The first two years of their new venture was spent building meaningful relationships with their customers, their vendors and ultimately with each other! This time was primarily spent on learning and honing their crafts, while taking risks, and taking on jobs that pushed them outside of their comfort zones.

In their third year of owning Silvertip, when they had finally come into their own, Barb & Corey realized that they had a very viable opportunity to bring their business to the next level! In order to move forward with that vision they knew that a rebranding was in order! From there, a new concept was born, and new life was sprung into the Silvertip name! Not only did Silvertip choose to rebrand visually, they also decided to rebrand physically by upgrading to a new location with over 3000 Sq. feet of operating space!

With four years strong, and a reputation that continued to spread Nationally, Barb & Corey continue to pride themselves on having a strong sense of value within their community.Both being members of their local Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce, they have a strong presence with many of the local and Iron Range Businesses.

core values

Barb & Corey pride themselves on being “hands on” owners, that are involved in every facet of their entire business! Silvetip’s clients learn the meaning of true customer service the moment they step foot in the door! Barb & Corey love to guide their clients on every project from start to finish. They are in constant communication from their initial contact, all the way through the completion of their project! Being “hands on” owners allows them to provide their own personal touch on every project no matter how big or small.

Beyond having exceptional customer service skills, Barb & Corey also pride themselves on producing a quality of work, to their customers, that cannot be matched by their competitors. They do all of their printing, graphic design work, and installations in house, which allows them to spend time fine tuning those tiny details that many other businesses overlook! Corey’s high attention to detail, and amazing installation skills has made him into an amazing wrapper, and Silvertip is willing to put his skills up against any other installer!
