    Hey All,   What are you folks doing to get a paper template to stick to a wet/cold masonry surface? We have tried duct tape, "Sticks to Anything" rubber tape, prayer and fasting. Short of applying the template to a rigid panel, say plywood, and fastening the plywood to the wall we are out of ideas. Any help out there?

    Well, yes I'm behind in the times.  Finally picked up a new Graphtec CE7000-130 via Montroy Supply.     In the 90's I bought a 24" Roland, then in the early 2000's I had to pick up a quick 24" Panther from Sign Warehouse.  With extra money and time on my hands I finally decided to get a MUCH wider Vinyl/Plotter....a Graphtec.   That that I do a whole lot of this type of work much anymore, but nice to actually have and much wider than a 24" that I've had to tile work for almos

  • The Sign Syndicate BrightON II LED Module


    Maybe I should have titled it "That BrightON Halo Illumination"

    Thought I would share a project where our new High-End 24 volt, .8watt BrightON II LED Modules were used.

    As I've discussed before in the past.  There is a difference and a gap between "Usable Light" and "Competitive Light".  The BrightON II is the most efficient (Light per power) LED Module in it's class, and it is the definition of Competitive Light.

    As explained here and suggested for spacing, it was chosen to use the 3" module spacer, and obviously  you'll see as you scroll down the spacing could have even been much farther apart.

    "......Anyway, Fairmont contacted me just prior to the time I realized Regency was going to give me the runaround. So at the time, I didn't think to check for feedback here (lesson learned obviously). They asked me to remove a Goodyear sign. Did that, then the Regency crap started, then I saw their feedback. That's about when they asked me to remove signs at a Kwik Car location. I told them I would do it but if they don't pay...."

  • 24V - Sign Cabinet LED Modules


    Double Sided Cabinet Light Spacing For LEDs

    Most Light Source Suppliers and Manufacturers won't show you examples let alone "numbers" of light readings on Sign Cabinet or Sign Projects from light source components they push like these I'm posting here, but....This is The Sign Syndicate!

    "Seeing is believing" as they say.

    So, one of the components I've been big on because of feedback and demand is a strong enough LED module that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, isn't proprietary where you need to buy their special clips, brackets, etc, and actually put out enough light without exaggerated "Usable Light" under too far spread spacing that's supposed to save you money that won't compete with other existing signs in the area of your project. 

    Biggest complaint from sign shops about cabinet LEDs....."I don't want to use a whole bunch of power supplies!"
