    Been doing some research past couple months about the vinyl decal/sign buisness and i took the plunge a few weeks ago, bought a graphtec ce5000-60 24" plotter based on the reliablity reviews, got a bunch of oracle 651, banner blanks, magnet blanks,ect..basically a small sign shop in about 10 boxes of goodies. Ive been really interested in this buisness. I also have illustrator cs6,photoshop cs6, and coreldraw x5. I have been getting a slow and steady amount of buisness based on word of mouth right now the past week or so. I think my main concern is learning the software alot more, its so much to take in at once as far as the design aspect of it. Anyways Im just here for some pointers and to learn from the veterans. thanks
