  1. Unfortunately, I hear not many actually retire from this industry. I hear retirement is only made possible by electrocution, taking a spill, or some misc means of passing away on the job/shop. No golf course or convertible corvette time ending for me.
  2. 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 almost 30 years.....so sad...
  3. Sweet, thanks for sharing. That looks pretty well explained for those needing to know / follow
  4. If anyone is needing wholesale Neon or Crane Service in the San Diego Area contact Bob Miller. If you need to integrate Neon into your projects or looking for repairs he's your shop. He's a hell of a Neon Bender and one of the few who truly know the craft with proper processing knowledge.

  5. Thanks Guys! Sucks getting older
  6. Just noticed a high number of bounce backs after sending this weeks Sign Syndicate newsletters out. I didn't really pay attention to the last few but I did this week. Lot's of complete domain's (company email) gone as well as "Individual is no longer with our company" The positive part that now makes sense is that lots of members who have joined recently are "passed members"
  7. 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
  8. Just like to announce that we now stock France Westrim Burroughs 1" Grid Pattern Paper for Neon production and Channel Letter & Electric Sign wall Pattern Paper. This is the BEST Heavy Duty Kraft Paper for "On The Fly" patterns that need to get made by hand in the shop, on the field. For quick un-install & quick re-install. Especially for signs not done by your shop! This is the best Pattern Paper you can use. I've posted pics of this paper plenty of times in the past, I truly believe in it and it makes setting up channel letter patterns much easier with the grid and heavy weight of the paper. Specs: - 70 Lbs Heavy Premium Quality Kraft Paper - 1" Grid with 1/4" Plot Points - 48" x 110 Yard Roll (38Lbs)
  9. ****Update - Now Stocking Westrim #100 and #300 Neon Glass Housings
  10. Wow, so good luck with getting any clear acrylic sheets along with Weld-On
  11. One thing I'm starting to see sign companies use as a tool along with the threats of a lien, and don't know how legal it is but cutting off the additional insured certification carry
  12. Updated. We now stock France Lighting Solutions Eco 24V Power Supply in a 60W unit
  13. So for some time we've had two main pages that I've had out there and thought that maybe I need to make it as just one. 1) Our Landing Page, which I'm using at a main page. When you type in www.thesignsyndicate.com or click on the logo located at the upper left you will come here http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/ 2) Our old Portal Page, which use to be our main page. Which recently I moved to the top menu "What's New" http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/index.php?/portal/portal/ Is this too confusing having both? Do you prefer one over the other? Which one do you dislike to like better? Some have told me in the past that they dislike 1 or 2 I need your feedback Thanks!
  14. La Mesa city hall is about 15 minutes away and that got destroyed, burned and looted. Many probably didn't hear about it. We don't have the same issues as LA which is not that far. Our city mayor is still a pussy, but not that much of a pussy as the LA Mayor, and our police take care of shit pretty fast...unlike LA. We had a protest/riot downtown, but it didn't last that long
