    I've been looking through this sight for a few days now just wanted to intro my self. My name is Mike and I bought a Roland Cx-24 about 4 weeks ago. I've been in the auto/industrail paint business for bout 20 years. I also have applied my share of graphics mainly on fire trucks and the sort.
    This is my first step on the this side of the computer. I still have a full time job, and I do this on the side. The one thing I have learned so far is that this takes alot of time, more time than I realize. I have made a little money so far, I've also lean a little about "Intellectual Property", The Hard way.
    Any way thanks to all the people who has contributed to this sight and I hope to be reading a lot more in the future.
    Mike

    Welcome from west central. Charge extra for intellectual property and collect the sales tax too.

    intellectual property

    It started when my wife asked me to make a decal for her car to advertise a health drink she was using. After a couple of her friends seen it they wanted one. Then I took a picture of her decal and listed on E-BAY.
    Well they were selling like crazy. After about a weeK my wife recieved an e-mail telling her to quite selling on E-BAY. Well after a few e-mails back and forth we figured it out that they were talking about me. After reading about all the legal ramifications, I stopped. I'm still getting e-mails wanting me to make them decals. You would think they would want the advertising. I guess I have alot to learn still.
    The good thing is that I made enough money to buy more specialty vinyl.
    Thanks Mike
