    Recently installed a sign for a business district. When our truck pulled up we found a camera crew waiting for us! Can someone say...free commercial?

    No mention of our company but plenty of shots of the co name and phone number on the truck.

    At least the guys were dressed appropriately, with company shirts & everything. Our company is part of another company & sometimes I will "borrow" employees from the other half to go on installs; usually they're just wearing their mechanics clothes, lol.

    Nice commercial.

    Very cool
    But...
    Your guys were not wearing hearing protection and safety glasses , and traffic cones to alert drivers you were working next to the road.
    I would have been fired.
    / just bustin your chops.

    hey we had traffic cones!! :Big Laugh

    they left the part when we hit a rock that was easily 12" wide. luckily had our combintation hammer with a chissel bit to knock it out of the way. if they filmed that you would have seen me with saftey glasses and hearing protection. :smile:

    What kind of sign is that?
    The 1/2" bolts made me go hmmm.
    Parts look like vinyl... some look sandblasted.
    Noob question.
    It looked very nice.

    Nice sign. :thumb:

    Try wrapping the legs with shrink wrap before you put the cement to it. Saves a bunch of clean-up.

    good idea!


    Really cool vid man.. hope you get to do the banner program also!

    I have a guy who subscribes to my magazine in Ossining.

    The best part was that I got to see the trailer to the new resident evil movie as an ad before the video! LOL
