    Here is one that I haven't run into in 18years of sign making. I have a sign that appears to be injection molded plastic. Not vacuum formed but injection molded. I will try and post pics as soon as I can but anyone ever hear of a company doing this? It is a 19"x23" backer panel on 5" decorative columns with toppers on columns and backer panel. It is double sided. Any thoughts?

    Like to see a Pic.. Some resins look very much like Injection Molding.. Usually a dead Giveaway is Resin will not have any ejector pin marks and Injected plastic you will see little circles around the inside/Back of the part from the ejector pins.

    Although I've personally not yet dealt with them, they are literally just down the street from where I currently work. How cool!

    If they were that close to me I would be working there now.. even if they didn't hire me I would sneak in and start sweeping the floor in hopes that they would not notice or just let me stay as a shop mascot and absorb all that knowledge and skill...

    I can't help but think that this company needs a show on Discovery.

    They have a show about a guy who makes cakes for cripe sake. At least this one would be entertaining.

    I used to design injection molds. They are very costly and you must have large volume to justify the tooling. The press needed for such a size would have to be over 500 ton.
