Evangeline Specialties Inc, was formed in 1951 as a supplier of advertising specialty items.
Within several years, 3 other product lines--Municipal Traffic Signage, Municipal Christmas Decorations, Flag & Banners--were added. The signage, decoration items, and flags are distributed nationwide. We have 2 printed catalogs available at no cost featuring those 3 product lines. We are frequently questioned about our unique name.
It’s very common in south Louisiana to see the name "Evangeline" used in business names.
It’s part of our history. The American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poem, Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie, detailing the life of a young Acadian girl, Evangeline, as she searches for her lost love who became separated from her during their voyage from Nova Scotia during the Great Upheaval. We have begun to celebrate our unique heritage and local words like Evangeline and Cajun are sources of pride. We are still family owned with an experienced sales staff that prides itself on excellent customer service. We are a classified as a small business and majority woman-owned. We do accept purchase orders from most government and military organizations.
