    Hi, I'm from Manila, Philippines, I'm currently working in a startup team of signmakers here in Manila. My role is more on design & fabrication. Our team is going on its 2nd yr, with currently 7 staff. But the people behind our team has wide range of experience in terms of sign fabrication & installations (they come from different sign maker company here in the Philippines). I joined the forum to learn and share what we know to bring back something to the sign making community. Cheers

    Welcome.

    My stepson will be traveling from Hawaii to the Philippines to visit with his father next month. Unless the hurricane delays him.

    Genuinely curious too. I visited the Philippines this summer and saw all these signs and graphics shops but the spaces look very small and didn't get a chance to check them out.

    ALSO this is very satisfying to watch. so amazing!

    playerplayer - I guess the sign trick I can share is regarding non-lighted signage build up, We always use painted G.I. sheet as our main choice of material instead of wood, the result of finish painted G.I. sheet is really good and it is budget friendly. Please see attached sample of our works, (@admin - hopefully it is ok to post some of our works) The soldering works is done by manually placing nikolite leads on the edges with the help of our custom made soldering iron. For the software, We use AI and Autocad for the design and shop drawing. Btw, as a short background, I was a Technical Drafter from an Industrial Company before here in the Philippines, so jumping to signage design is quite a breeze since I have the experience using CAD program (2D/3D drawings) which I always find useful. Shop draw is always helpful to us. For the printers, As of now We outsource our plotting and decal needs, since we are just a startup company, but we are considering getting a mimaki cutter plottter and a decent large format printer soon. For our laser cutting needs is also outsource but hopefully one day We can afford to get all the sign making tools available for us. Regards from the Philippines. Cheers

    JR'sJR's - Thank You. Regards

    clarizeyaleclarizeyale - that is a commonly used signboard by our local transport vehicle. Mostly use by Jeepneys here in the Philippines. That video is a good example of sign making skills at least to me. Regards

    Thanks for the info! I'm very well aware of Jeepneys, I've just never seen a sign being painted so I thought that process was really cool.

    Thanks!

    morty87morty87 & The Big SqueegeeThe Big Squeegee - cheers! Thank You

    clarizeyaleclarizeyale - yup jeepneys are almost everywhere here in Manila :)
    It just happens that whenever we have clients looking for non lighted build up We normally recommend
    painted G.I. sheet because we find it very straight forward working with G.I. sheet either manually jigsaw
    or via laser cut (outsource) and the durability is great. For other signs, We usually work with the most common material which is acrylic & sintra boards but still in the end its still the clients specs / requirements to meet.
