    We slowed down drastically in October. A lot of my customers said the same thing. We all thought/hoped it had something to do with the election. We lost another two larger customers to not being able to compete with flatbed print pricing. We definitely don't have that purchase in our budget. Then Wonder Bread one of our biggest and longest customers closed their doors. Christmas was not looking good.

    Well another good customer decided to change their logo. This morning we just got approval for redoing 93 trucks and 28 pairs of magnets. Going to get the 50% down payment. We will also be redoing a dozen or so enclosed trailers and all of their office/warehouse signage. This isn't something I could/would share with friends or FaceBook but I'm so dang excited I want to scream. Might have to get my 3 year old son a extra Thomas train.

    When one door closes, another one opens. Unless you live in a house with one door.
