A Texas man selling his wares near a highway intersection west of a small town got a big boost after a local graphics company signed on to help.

David Ortiz has sold fruit, plants, eggs, hot sauce and honey west of Beeville in southern Texas for more than a year, KSAT reported. It's a humble business, and motorists can easily miss Ortiz's handwritten sign.

When the couple left, Cisneros suggested that Ortiz needed a bigger sign. Gonzales broached the idea to her boss, Gilbert Herrera, who owns Total Graphics in Beeville.

"Well, being the awesome boss he is he told me Total Graphics would gladly donate the signs," Gonzales wrote on Facebook.

Gonzales and her co-workers created a sign with large block letters set against a bright white background and brought it to Ortiz on Tuesday, KSAT reported.

"After work we drove over to give him his signs and he was so grateful," Gonzales wrote on Facebook. "Y'all don't forget about Mr. David Ortiz when the stores run low on eggs."

Now, customers will know where to look.
