Not sure where to ask about this. I have forgotten my pass word. I am able to connect on this computer as the password is saved but I cannot access from my home computer since I have forgotten it. Any solution would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi Ralph,  

 

Once at home, you can go into the log in, and go to "Forgot password" and have a password reset sent to your email address, then click on that confirm link and rest a password to your liking.  Later change your existing

 

Or from your existing computer, go to your profile located at the upper right window in a pull down menu and go to your settings > EMAIL/PASSWORD and select a password to your liking that you can remember for both locations.  But, it might ask you to put in your existing password.  In that case logout, and to the following I described above.

 

If you need more help, you can email us at admin@thesignsyndicate.com

      The Specials (some include free shipping) and reduced costs on selected electrical sign supplies that we stock continue even after Christmas when you're a Board Patron or National Patron.
      A lot of items are already reduced when you log in and you're an upgraded member. You might not notice the pricing unless you log out, then log in. You will see that the shopping cart prices are reduced when you log in.
      Just another reason to upgrade your free membership to a Board Patron or National Patron.
      You support us, we'll have your back so you can compete better in the marketplace!

      We've made some changes when it comes to membership.
      There are now two groups of Supp/Mfg./Assoc members, I & II. I is for the business's that make under $2million in annual sales, II makes over. When they choose to upgrade their membership to a Board Vendor they are also broken up into I & II. Reason being is smaller vendors don't have their light sources in the light sources test comparisons. For the $350 a year as it was, it's too time consuming and costly for me to build out three or four compartments in the tests, the cost of operation for those tests and the time it takes to rotate the advert banners in the newsletters every week etc.
      The Supp/Mfg/Assoc members that make $2m+ are now $500 and $475 to renew annually. This is still a far much lower cost and better deal than joining an Association at $1,000 which comes with no real perks or advertisng unless you spend more, or paying for one issue of adverting of $10,000 for one single page in one single issue of a trade magazine. The adverting perks that come with the membership like the weekly newsletter banners that are a whopping 150x700 horizontal banner, and the three month rotating board vendor banner, and the affiliate banner seeing that the footer of the board has a much larger advantage.
      Also a new class is the National/Service Co members, these are the same as a Board Member, just a little different, they can't view or access the National Sign & Service Co Review List. Reason being, so they can't skew polls or their own listings. They can access this area when they choose to support this board and upgrade their membership to a National Patron which will give them access. This new Patron membership will have the same perks as a Board Patron but a few more. If their one of the Nationals that have a high rating on the board (Good relations / Pay on time) we will post openly in weekly newsletters and on the front page of this website the best National Sign & Service Companies to work for.
      Membership upgrade are purchased from our store

      I want to take the time right now and thank our Board Patron's who continue to help support this site by renewing their Board Patron membership and some who continue in advertising. There are quite a few of you and below are the most recent, some are new Board Patrons for the first time.
      Chubby, myfordtk, Tim, Brad Hunter, Signworksinc, mj1975, saneon,
      You members help in continuing the testing we do here for those 5 projects that we have running 20 hours a day and make the site possible on a daily basis.
      From Kirstie and myself, thank you!

    • Sign Suppliers selling to anyone for that extra dollar.  I know it well.   I can not blame anyone for trying to make more money or extra money on the side. We all have done it. When a supplier goes into business selling to the trades, that is his profession and that is what he is building his business on If the Supplier wants to sell to the public and or manufacture themselves and sell directly. Let them. You can do the same.  Buy Direct. Buy someplace else. Knock them out of the picture. Make them hurt. I did it several times with a supplier. I stopped ordering from them.  Sometimes I paid less, Sometimes I paid more. But that supplier lost everything from me. That was a big hit to them and they felt it immediately. New Suppliers want your business and want their competitors out of business also. The suppliers came back to me and with better pricing and service. They also changed their policies. Get a few shops together on this and watch the impact you will make.

    • It's no shot at me, no worries.   I'm semi -retired on sign production.  I only have a handful of clients that refuse to go elsewhere.  Also, it's only in my local market.   Our Electric Sign Supply sales don't amount to much here locally because our market is all based on lowest price NOT quality....it's a shame really   The upside to the few items I distribute is that I know what I'm talking about unlike the distributor/sign supply rep most talk too on product information or questions.  I give customers and sign shops my first hand knowledge on use and testing and won't read them info from the product "Faq" page, or rely on info from some manufacturer rep if a product is going to "last"   Staying somewhat active in sign production/installation also keeps me up to speed with the Electric Sign Industry trends and active demand as well as codes, unlike a sign supply rep who was selling cars one week to selling sign components...or a sign supply rep who has been around for years but yet never produced or installed a sign.   The Sign Syndicate Members and Customers worries, are also my worries...it's always been that way     I only distribute products I have tested, used, and or created ourselves like our new BrightON LEDs which has been taking the best characteristics of LED modules from all our testing over the years and putting it all into one product line.   I'm not looking to be the next big sign supplier, far form that.  I just want to sell high-end components to shops looking to produce high-end signs that last...and work efficiently.     But I feel you on the COVID shut down, how it's making for desperate times.  People loosing their jobs, working minimal hours, schools shit down and requiring zoom only and requiring parents to stay home and not work if that is possible.   Making people get into areas they might not normally dap into   I could write a long thread with all the BS Kirstie is dealing with at the hospital and how the medical community is widening/broadening COVID symptoms to count more people all to get paid more by MEDiCAL, and to politically keep the number positive cases higher.  In my state, with what they're doing...we will never open up.  It's not testing more to get a higher number of +'s....it's broadening and changing what can lead to + symptoms...   Sorry for taking a medical tangent on your thread....it just pisses me off
    • We all know times are tough.  How do y'all feel about your local Sign, Metal, Plastic Supplier transitioning into selling direct to the public?  I like many other sign shops have added Social Safety Barriers to their portfolio.  What's your alls take on this? Example, I was just talking to my main metal wholesale supplier.  The CSR told me to check out their new line of Barriers.  Needless to say she got a polite earful from me.  I for one am not going to compete with my suppliers.  When this CV19 bs is over.  Will they start selling pre built cabinets, or offer channel letters direct to the public as well? Erik, this isn't in any form directed to you.  You've always been upfront with your sign/supplier sales.  This is directed towards the big guys who have always sold only to resellers.   I will not be giving them my business for eternity.
    • We like the plastic clips.   I completely agree with the 1-2 click rule.  Having that extra travel has saved us a few times.   We get the face fairly tight/smooth then go around the whole thing depressing the clips another click or two as needed.   The tensioning tool makes short work of that last little bit.  Puckering might be a sign of having it too tight as well.    Yes, I've done that.  Either that or the sign needs additional supports.   Its amazing how much tension a flex face puts on a cabinet, especially if it was not designed for a flex face originally.
