    ....some of you know me, I'm sure, and I'm not really hiding my identity with my user name....a little background on me;

    I started in the glorious Sign and Graphics biz back in 1993......small shop, doing lots of vehicle graphics (Gerber EDGE was the thing!), and doing tons of tradeshow pop-up graphics and displays....

    Learned to run Gerber equipment, including an AR600 and Gerber Sabre 408 routers the head way----by throwing stuff out and starting over!.....after working production for 7+ years, I was tired of the "gotta work Thurs and Fri night" thing due to clients and agencies not getting you the promised files/SyQuest (remember those?) etc etc on time on Tues, but Thurs noon instead....we were doing some pretty high-end stuff for MLB, the NHL, General Motors, and that shop still does some NHL work....

    I jumped ship in 2000 and went to our major supplier, whom I'm still with 11 years later...

    I have EDGE, Solvent Inkjet and UV-flatbed experience aplenty.....I also have a great background on cutting, be it on a router, or a flatbed cutter like a Zund/Kongsberg/etc....

    Yes, I sell materials and equipment, but try to stay as objective as possible, helping out where I can.....there are lots of good solutions out there that my company doesn't sell, and plenty that my company does sell....
