New in the Sign business

I just started into the sign business a few weeks ago and am having a lot of fun. I worked in a reprographic shop previously and got my feet wet and recently moved to Texas to go out on my own.
I was excited to discover this forum and really look forward to participating.

Best Regards;

Oh, thank you so much. I designed the Diva logo and sign but I charged too little for the sign though. I told them I would do the signicade for $150 like the 2nd day I was in the business (before I knew how much work they were). Being a newbie I have just charged them for the vinyl and none of my design time. However; 3 weeks later i'm much wiser now (Rob<---Liar).

Very cool. A lot of us from the Fort Worth area. A ton of business out here so we should all get fat and happy. I had the ...pleasure of meeting Cadmn in the other forums.

No, you asked me if you couldn't draw how I expect to do well in the sign business. But.. I do know how to draw. I did rip on your cutter; that's true. However; now If I could go back and do the mature thing i'd turn back the clock and rip on your website instead :)

PS: Anyone that reads Cadmn and I go back and forward pay it no mind. I think we just have fun messing with eachother and we don't get too worked up. :Coffee:

All newbies must submit themselves to the following hazing ritual.
Call your local sign shops and see if they have a bin full of scrap vinyl, offer yourself to them so they can get the local grade school to come by and cover you in it, extra points are awarded for walking down the main street covered in said vinyl.... hehehehehe
