  1. LED Components - You Should Be Worried

    Great post Erik! Some folks (Democrats) are upset about the "war" President Trump is having with China (and others). I say it is about damn time! Every President before him has tip toed around what they have been doing trying to appease them for whatever reason. The big dog is in the house now, and he is kicking down some doors! I say HALLELUJAH! It's about damn time!
  2. NO SPEC

    I spend hours and hours and hours (days) drawing sometimes on one project - it's typically those customers that end up not purchasing the sign! Drives me NUTS! I have been kicking around the idea of starting to charge for the design time before I present the drawing to them, but I have asked around and no other sign company around here charges for artwork, so I'm still torn about what to do. But I think it's unfair for me to spend days and days on a project design and the consumer not expect to have to pay something for that time. Especially those that don't purchase the sign and take my design to the next sign shop to have it manufactured!! Thoughts?? If sign design was all that I did like you, Matthew, I wouldn't even start on a design without some form of payment up front as a deposit and I wouldn't let my design leave my hands without a form of payment for the balance that couldn't "bounce"! If design was my livelihood, no way would it leave my office without payment in full unless it is someone you trust a whole lot!!
  3. Collecting a debt

    Very sorry that happened to you. Wonder what in the world he did to have the IRS seize everything he owned?? That's crazy! Hopefully he didn't own the properties where the stores are so you can file a lien on the property so the actual owner of the property will have to pay you. Not really fair to make them pay, but better than you losing all of that money!! Best of luck getting paid.
  4. Recommendation for Work in NY

    Fantastic! I think this will be enough for him. I will pass everything on to him and have him get in direct contact with you, if that's okay? Thanks! Angie
  5. Recommendation for Work in NY

    That would be great! I know he is going to ask me for some references. He trusts me a lot, but since I am not there to over see things, he is going to want to make sure it would be just like I am there.
  6. Hey guys & gals! I have a long time customer of mine that is actually from New York, but has a bunch of properties in my area that I maintain for him. Great guy/group to work for. He has a sign in the Buffalo, New York area that needs to be replaced at a mall he owns. Please either PM me or send me some recommendations that I can send to him that could take care of that for him. He is a great guy, but he expects first rate work and nothing less. Of course I know all of the folks on here do nothing but first rate work!! Any help to help my customer will be greatly appreciated. He also pays VERY well!! Thanks! Angie
  7. Can't fix stupid

    Just when you think you have seen it all ....... You haven't. Unbelievable.
  8. Thanks for the info!! I will add this to my list of bad eggs I get from The Sign Syndicate.
  9. I get e-mails from them almost daily with trucks listed for sale, but have never contacted them. SO thankful I read this today. That's why I love this website. You can always find the truth here!
  10. Aaaargh Aluminum prices

    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!

    We typically don't get political on this website, but I can't wait to see the responses this gets!! LOL

  13. Aaaargh Aluminum prices

    Just curious - who is your vendor? I need some 4' x 10' sheets for a job I am currently doing, and I haven't been able to find it for that kind of price! Last I ordered that size the price was $150 a sheet!
  14. Aaaargh Aluminum prices

    That sounds like price gouging to me. Just saying. I am checking with my vendor right now to see if they have had an increase. I ordered some aluminum last week and the cost was the same as it was the week before. Just checking with them to see if it has changed since I ordered last week. I will let you know.
  15. Swing Sign Hanger Brackets

    I ordered one from the sign bracket store and it would not be in stock for 2 months! So you will probably find it there, just a matter of if it is in stock or not. We ended up having to manufacture ours.
