    Dave, Our previous wonderful Presidents have let other countries have their "way" with us. We haven't had fair trade up until now. When has NAFTA ever benefited our Farmers, factories Automobile plants etc for us? Our farmers are suffering and losing their farms, our plants ar just about shut down in the last 30 years. Our largest steel plants are about to shut their doors. Other countries tax our exports 25%+, we tax them 2.5%. Is this fair? Does Canada do this? When you say "his way" you mean our way, because this President, our President is following through on promises he ran on and was voted in to fulfill, like him or not. Cost for us may go up for the short term (hopefully), and that's something we may just have to bite on a piece of leather for a bit,...but this is to get/rebuild our industry back up because we're losing it.

    Amen & hallelujah!!! Yes, OUR wonderful President! And he is wonderful!! Someone that finally has a backbone & could care less about the PC crap of the past. These Countries think they can tax and tariff us to death and we are supposed to just sit back and take it up the tail pipe and not reciprocate!!?? Not anymore! GYNORMOUS trade deficits all around. We have somebody in there now that is standing up for business people - and the rest of the Country - and letting those Countries know we will no longer be taken advantage of. NAFTA is not a good deal and has let other Countries walk all over us. I am all for trade, but it has to be fair and equitable for ALL parties, not just everybody BUT the United States. This President gets that! Thank GOD! Yes, we may have to pay a little more until this all shakes out, but I pray he holds Canada and everybody else's feet to the fire until they make a good deal for both parties. Let the deal making begin! Our U.S. aluminum and steel manufacturers will now have a level playing field instead of having to shut their doors. That's a good thing!

    So.... I've had some recent conversations (phone and in person) and just wanted to remind everyone who might be taking a interest in our awesome NC Reckless LED's. Our NC LED's are NOT the same as NC LED's sold by other distributors. I don't care what they might be telling you NC LED is really growing and branching out. Our NC Reckless LED line is named "Reckless" for a reason, their NOT the same module you could have gotten a sample from some other Vendor here in the US or abroad i.e. Europe. A quick side by side comparison is the DEAD giveaway. NC LED Recently opened up a plant in Vietnam and they make all kinds of modules from various diode producers including Samsung, their catering and competing with other lower tier/cost LED Manufacturers here in the US and all over the world. The NC LED Lower Tier modules are still good, don't get me wrong and much better than the other lower tier manufacturers. NC LED makes LED modules from all kinds of various Diode Producers like LG, SOL, Samsung, etc, and even some Chinese Chips (Vietnam). That being said.... Our NC Reckless LED's are specifically made in Korea, and unique. Our modules are built to specific configurations (we chose from our testing) ONLY with top tier top grade Samsung Diodes. Honestly there is over 30+ Samsung grades and when you open up a magazine like Signs of The Times and see flash words like "Samsung" & "50¢ per module". NOT THE SAME THING, sorry if you bought something called Samsung and expect that to be a Top Tier diode just because of name.....SURPRISE! That is lower tier/grade garbage I would not use commercially With a background in electric sign production I wouldn't do that to you. Our Reckless LED Line is the Cream of The Crop when it comes to NC LED Modules, there is a reason why ours appear "True White" compared to other NC LED's (lower cost) and those other LED's you may be currently be purchasing. Our module specifications have on board current drivers (Constant Current) and NOT Constant Voltage (resistor base) for long life. I'm not putting down or detouring anyone from other NC LED's, they are good quality and better than 75% or on par with all the crap out there in the market....but....their not TOP Tier or High-End. BIG Difference! Anyone who has been buying our LED line, thank you for supporting our high-end quality products for your projects and customers and for supporting The Sign Syndicate. Rest assure you're good when it's from us! Side Note, our offering is expanding in colors, as well as White Temperatures 3000K, 8000K, & Soon 4,000K, 5,000K, 2700K Check us out http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/43-nc-led/

    We have a new customer who needs a new sign face at an existing business. The existing sign has a Sign Monkey sticker. The clear vinyl is delaminating and the sign is in poor shape. They have these clear little tabs that stick off the back where it was installed. The little tabs are so you don't have to open the face to install. When I looked it up on their website I was floored. They say right on the website that their signs don't need an electrician to install, they have cables that can be plugged into the next letter, then the next and so on. They are even ul listed. In Washington State, if it's electrical you have to have an ELECTRICIAN install it unless it has a regular plug in (like a hanging window sign). Has anyone else seen this? Thoughts? I'm really uncomfortable how easy they make installing look, when we all know it's not that easy.

    Growing up in Bethlehem Pennsylvania with the stories of how Bethlehem Steel provided the backbone of our country I certainly have mixed thoughts about these tariffs. The idealist in me would love to see American Steel seize this opportunity and reclaim its market; however, I don’t see that happening. Steel mills like all other corporations are dependent on their stock price. Raising tariffs on steel and aluminum will most certainly have a negative effect on manufacturing and construction resulting in slower economic growth and lower corporate profits. This will result in higher cost of goods and compound from there. This feels like the fulfillment of a short-sighted campaign promise, one that is intended to benefit a few, but will have more broad-based repercussions.

    Probably 8 to 10 years ago we purchased Cyrious software. Explained that we are custom fabricators and not your typical sign company by any means. Big waste of money, they never could get things figured out. That was for their estimating and tracking software. Virtually no help from their HQ. Can not recommend.

    I purchased Casper in 2004 at isa in Vegas. Hands down great decision. The team I met in 2004 (Eric and Linda) still answer the phone and reply to inquiries most time within minutes to this day. I am honestly not familiar with the other programs but Everyone who I’ve talked to about Casper has had the same experience. You can’t go wrong. Also, when we have a new employee we request online one on one training and it is scheduled fast and we don’t have to spend hours on training. I hope this is helpful.
