Signs since 1976


New Member
Hello All,
Was excited to find this site today. Been in sign business since 1976 in Ohio, doing various types of signs & screen printing. Computerized since 88. Would love to talk to fellow artists.
Still using ancient Anagraph software cause I'm comfortable with it, and a 42" Summa cutter... cause it still works! lol

Have a Great Day!

It's like a mirror image. We started in '71 on our own, got Gerber and ANA software in '86 and we're still too poor to quit.

Hello from someone else who learned the trade before computers! I also started in the early 70's. Time can sure pass quickly in this ever changing industry. From hand lettering to computer-cut vinyl to large format digital printing (which I farm out). This business nowadays can sure get costly!
Anyways, after a long day it's time to relax and have a cold :beer
