  1. Hi Folks, Was wondering if anyone would be willing to share a wholesale LED poster Box source with me. We are putting a bid together for a local casino and they are asking for pricing on a few LED light box for back lit prints. I suppose if I had my choice a supplier located mid country would work best. Thanks Mike B Big River Sign Co.

  9. Truck for Paul

    For some reason this looks like it would be a good truck for Paul's Sign in New York! Um......

  14. Proper Lamps for Flex Face

    Just a quick follow up, we were informed by our vendor that a single print may result in some "washout" issues. We elected to go with a single print because we had to tighten our belt on this one. Thanks for everyones advise as it is always appreciated. Our vendor has always treated us fairly and delivered what was promised. This was an issue brought about entirely by us. We'll truth be told by me. Thanks Folks Mike B
  15. Proper Lamps for Flex Face

    Thanks Folks, Wife drove by last night while running our oldest to scouts. She said shes not quite sure what the customer is complaining about. She noticed a little "washout" of the lighter yellow and orange of the logo. She said all in all it looks fine. I'm going to swing by and talk to our client today. We had to go with printed faces instead of yellow cooley because he did not want the deeper yellow of the cooley material. In retrospect I should have had my vendor print both sides. We have done the single print for a number of Dick's Sporting Goods cabinets with nice results using day lights lamps. Cool whites produce a more yellow light and washed out the color of the flex face. When we installed daylights the color transmitle was much cleaner. Again, thanks for the input everyone. Mike B
