Mascitti, Paul
My family's Barre roots go back to the very early 1900's when my great grandfather migrated here from Italy to start his own granite business. He was especially good at carving roses by hand out of granite and, at $25 a piece, that became his focus until his untimely passing in the 1940's. With my grandfather and father also working within the granite industry, it seemed to make sense that I would follow suit. While spending time learning monumental drafting, I just couldn't keep my mind away from my true passion: designing race cars! - I loved looking at the fantastic race car lettering that local guys like Chris Ford, Orton Patch and the Lefleche family over in Graniteville did for racers in the region, and I like to think I still draw inspiration from them even today! Mascitti Brothers was born when my brother and I noticed a local need for a reliable source for office, truck, and motor sports vinyl lettering where the customer could tell the company was interested in fulfilling their needs to their liking no matter how small.
