    Greetings and well met!

    I've actually been lurking on these forums for the better part of 2 years, I finally made an account a few months back. LOTS of good stuff to learn here that's for sure!

    My name is Brian Hardin II, and I have a sign shop (and I love to use ( ) when I type - when I do that it shows what I'm thinking aside from what I am typing, almost like a thought bubble in a comic book).

    I started Cheetah Signs when I was living in Palm Bay, Florida a few years back. My wife and I had a baby (she is almost 3 now) and as a result my wife wanted to move back to her home state of Arkansas so that our dauther could grow up knowing her grand-parents. We currently live about an hour away from them, which is great. My wife is really pushing for us to move closer still, which I don't suppose I'd mind, I get along with them better than my own parents anyways (but that's another post for another time).

    Just before we moved I sold off some equipment (now really regretting it) and I had every intention of not doing it as hard and heavy as I did down in Florida.

    BUT...

    It's in my blood! Just like games, signs are in my blood (I used to own a game store in Memphis, Tn called Game Masters. Internet sales from competitors forced me to evaluate that business and I decided to close it down. My wife and I then moved to Florida. With the money I made off of the inventory I invested in sign making equipment.


    It's something akin to how a piano player or muscian can sit down and create something beaultiful to listen to, I love that I can sit down and create something fun to look at, yet at the same time making sure it's functional.

    I enjoy the artsy side of the sign making industry, but I also enjoy the techinal "figureing it all out" when putting a concept together. It appeals to my brain.

    That aside, I'm enjoying this forum very much and realized that I never introduced myself.

    So, there you have it.

    One question I do have, I notice that my name is listed as Flisk (which is what I set it at when I first signed up), but is there a way to change it to my actual name? I ask this because I'm trying to figure out if I want to keep my nick-name (flisk is my role-playing name given to me many-a-year ago and I still use it today), or if I should go with my real name/sign company name here on these forums for more credibility.

    Thoughts?

    By the looks of it you will fit in just fine.

    Just don't sit too close to Flamey, he likes to cop a feel every once in a while!
