About Us

The Frack family has been in the advertising world since 1931 when Ed’s grandfather founded Frack Electric Signs. That business changed its name a number of times over the years, most recently to Signs by Frack. The business is still around today. The business survived throughout the years — in good and bad economic conditions — because of their dedication to providing a superior product, outstanding service and their understanding that without a happy, satisfied, and successful customer, their business will fail. Their goal remains the same: never to give a customer a reason to go to a competitor!

That focus is what drives The Factory Advertising!

Founded in 2005 by Ed Frack, a Lehigh Valley advertising veteran with more than 30 years in the business where we have provided strategic media and advertising solutions to literally hundreds of advertisers – local, regional, national and international consumer and business-to-business clients.

Regardless of their goals: build the brand, increase awareness, sell a product or service – our way of assisting our clients is grounded in a consistent and strategic philosophy.

We take the time to understand our clients’ business goals. We also discuss plans for determining success of a campaign. We don’t just recommend the latest trend because it’s what everyone else is doing. We come up with the most effective strategies for each particular goal.
