    OK finished the job on Christmas eve these will be going out to an Oilfield site. we ended up going with .125 thickness aluminum with High intensity white reflective. I applied oracal 761 black on them used my tried and true speed press and they turned out nice.

    actually I was quoted by Newman and another suggested supplier. In this case and I am not plugging or saying this will always be the case but Newman signs definitely came in lower than the other source.

    Okay, I know the job is done and I know this isn't a layout thread but why is "5 MPH" the smallest thing on the sign? It should have been the biggest.

    The signs were drawn up by someone in one of the oil companies with specific layouts how they wanted to look. Then they put their order in to an oilfield supply house that came to us to do the work. I found 2 misspellings in some of the other signs (Most were signs listing allowed and prohibited waste materials in certain bins) I brought the misspellings to the attention of the supply house that ordered them from us and I was told to not deviate from what was supplied from the oil company. I am sure the supply house has no problem charging the oil company for fixing the misspellings when they show them it was their fault. Big ego's and big waste in the Bakken. the whole job was size, material and excess cost overkill in my opinion, but I will do them again, and again.

    I would have told them...as they will find out, OASHA will NOT approve these. So be ready to re-letter.
