    Hi there.

    I just registered today.

    I'm 31, and I roll biscuits for Hardees. I also recently bought a Roland CX-300 plotter so I can do some sign work on the side.

    I'm not new to the sign business. My dad owned and operated a sign business for about 15-20 years. He managed a sign company here for about 5 years, but that sign business closed and the owner had my dad re-trained to be a jeweler (the fellow now owns a jewelery store). My dad went from being an excellent sign guy to being an excellent jeweler :).

    I've done all kinds of less-than-mediocre jobs (about a job per year was my average). Before I got my job at Hardee's I decided to try to stay with whomever hired me just to change that average. Well, Hardee's hired me.

    I tried to do signs before (without buying a plotter and without having any other source of income), and it was a miserable failure. Perhaps it will be better this time. I think having a plotter and another income makes a bit of difference.

    Anyways, I have perused this bulletin board and it seems nice. I wanted some opinions on a job coming up (will post that elsewhere); so I thought I'd register.

    Cheers.

    {edited to fix a typo}

    Techman is right.

    I am from Pensacola, and I live just down the road from Old Paint.

    Thanks for the welcome folks.

    I don't think so, but then I've never heard of it (so I might and just don't know it).
