SWMCA was founded as a calligraphy stand in Edwardsville, Kansas during 1977 and became a painted sign operation from 1979 through 2003. SWMCA stands for Stephen Wayne McBride Calligraphic Agency. From 2003 thru 2009; as painted signs were replaced by vinyl banners, SWMCA became a ad-supported free web information provider. While we were known primarily for our Flesh 'R Artz and Letz Sav-Ya-Mor websites, we had others. We operated as ABAI Websites for this, but SWMCA was still the official business name. During that time we continued to design fonts and typefaces, but not nearly as much. We moved our base from our hometown of Edwardsville, KS. to Kansas City, MO in May of 2006. In 2011 we decided to just offer our fonts to the public (including to former sign painting rivals). SWMCA became finally incorporated December 9th, 2014 in the State of Missouri.
