    I do wanna come in ....be comin' in soon. ;)

    BTW...Hello! I've recently begun to come online with signs101 more frequently. My handle is StickerMonkey ....but that says NOTHING about who I am. So here goes...

    I started working in the Printing industry back in 1994 as a Paste Up and Pre Press person. From there I began my FreeLance design work while I moonlighted for my families Office Supply business bookkeeper..(YUCK). My Uncle had a really cool Sign Business that he operated from his home. One of the first Computerized Sign Companies up in our area at the time. I did a few desgin projects with him and thought nothing of it until in 2000 he approached me about buying his sign business. At that time, I was not ready to be an business owner...so my father bought the business and allowed me to learn the craft. Over the next 5 years I became confident in my abilities to run the business and wanted to take the already thriving business to a new level. So I bought it...moved it into its own dedicated space within an art gallery.

    I now operate the business from my own building in the centre of our small town and across from my families office supply business. The building is a bit of a money pit...but it's an awesome location with just enough property to hopefully build my own garage. :) Despite some tough times these last few years, I'm still growing and expanding my companies services.

    About ME ...My name is Kyla. I am the mother of 2 awesome kids, 11 girl & 7 boy. I am a wife to the most supportive and patient man.

    How do you do?? lol
