    Well it is nice to be apart of the group. I worked in a sign shop while I was in school. There I weeded and installed graphics. I learned a lot but I moved away to be with my girlfriend and now my wife. I got a job at a publishing company where I did stuff that really bored me. Luckly for me the business had a screen printing company. I transfered from one part of the business to the other. I was much happier there. Well, after a while me and my wife got married and moved back to our home town to be closer to the family and raise a family. Only job i could get was in a factory building seats. Now since it has been almost 10 years since the last sign I made I decieded to open up my own shop. I realy enjoy what I do. I like working for myself. It kinda stinks at times just starting out but I've been doing decals for friends and family and I been looking around at some old worn out signs and introduceing myself hoping to drum up some jobs.


    Well thats it, oh like I said I'm still married and have two boys. Maybe one of them will take to the sign business and join me at work. I think I would like that. Thanks!:thankyou:

    OK...I'll be the devil....
    Well..who do you have to contact other than knocking on doors?
    You know..that has a VERY small percentage of success.
    AND..you haven't mentioned the software that works for you or potential clients..that is HUGE....will you outsource the cutting/printing..or gonna go whole hog with machinery...storefront?
    I'm just trying to see the other side of your optimism...Don't let me toss you an anchor...
    Cheers!
