    T'was the night before christmas, and all through the forum . . .
    Not a member was stirring not a newbie was boring . . .


    The signs were all hung on thier buildings with care . . .
    and the scent of some rapid-tac a loft in the air . . .

    All the tools put away all the vinyls and blades . . .
    Oh' the paint wasn't stirring and no car wraps for days . . .

    While the old timers gathered for a bit of shop talking . . .
    And the kiddies all waiting to look in thier stocking . . .

    But while work is so slow no employees will stay . . .
    And the bills all stop coming for at least one more day . . .

    As the big day approaches and we all laugh and cheer . . .
    While we all sit around having coffee or beer . . .

    Let me leave you with this for all your hard work and smarts . . .
    Here's to all the great sign-makers . . . All you cranky old farts . . .

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year . . . ! ! !

    That's pretty good replicator.

    I made one a while back, that I'd like to share again.

    Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the shop,
    not a sign was drying, because I forgot to turn the heat.
    The vinyl was cut, and even R-Taped, in hopes that the sign would be great.
    The customers were nestled all snug in their beds, with visions their sign could be read.
    And the boss just getting in, and I on my way, knowing we have a sign to make for Christmas day.
    When getting to the shop, and hearing the chatter, I came in to find my boss even madder.
    The heat wasn't on, the sign wasn't dry, my boss turned red and started to cry.
    We knew the odds were against us, only hours to finish the sign, what would we do, the fault was all mine.
    When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a site called Signs 101, with great people full of cheer.
    I posted my plight, not knowing what to expect, more rapid than eagles, the posts rolled in. Do this, do that, this battle you'll win.
    So I took the advice, from sign gods you see, in no time at all, the sign was tack free.
    A few other tips, from many at signs 101, we soon removed the backing paper, and then we begun.
    "Letter here, letter there," my boss finally talking to me again, we squeegeed like mad to the end.
    Just before dawn the sign got done, the customer came and got it, thank god there was only one.
    My boss was happy, my life was saved, all by a website, Signs 101, I'll never forget that day.


    Cheers all,

    George
