  1. I'm new and have a question about trade shows

    We both attend and exhibit sign trade shows and some industrial equipment. We go to ISA when and buy the show special printer......
  2. My new desk lamp

    On Amazon prime I watched a movie called "Neon" Very good !!!!!
  3. My new desk lamp

    Finally got around to putting this letter back together. Porcelain Enamel that was taken down from the "Welcome to the Bagnell dam" sign by one of our good friends and customers John at signature signs. I think this was built in the 50's. I am sure it will outlast all of the LED's that we all installed today with a 60+ year head start.
  4. Hyundai Signs For Sale

    I dont know if they still do it but in the case of GM pole signs they would also have to show photos of the anchor bolts cut off and a good portion of the base demo'd
  5. Our new router

    Sawtrax 84'' high we have a speed cut also but its in the crating dept. Same size
  6. Our new router

    Our newest Router is just installed and up and running. 84''x144'' 11 station tool changer with a water cooled spindle. We replaced a 60''x120'' 8 station carousel tool changer (to small). The new one is parked next to out 14 year old machine that is still running and making $. Funny we were talking about how scared we were that the machine would not get used enough to justify the cost. Now between 3 machines we have 100 hours a week in routing time and impossible to do what we do. The new machine is a step up again in speed and efficiency. Sorry if I sound like a sales rep for them but they have not given me so much as a tshirt ..... We have never been sorry about purchasing equipment, scared when looking at a string of zeros on the cost though. It might not work that way for everyone but buy it and spend time on growing your biz and dont look back.
  7. Sign Syndicate Birthday & Christmas End of Year Sale

    BTW the Ushio LED "bulbs" are dimmable? What type of dimmer is best?
  8. Sign Syndicate Birthday & Christmas End of Year Sale

    Congrats on the 13 years !!!!! How time flies when you are having fun.....
  9. UFB Fab 2018 Sign Trade Show

    Unless a company/exhibitor has unlimited budget for show marketing it has to have a measured ROI. As far as a show goes it has to have something to see as an attendee and without attendees you won't have exhibitors. Kind of a chicken or the egg thing. Anyway here is a flyer of our show in Feb. BTW I am pretty sure the Tri-State Sign Association will have a meet and greet directly after the show. We would love to see the Sign Syndicate members stop by.
  10. SignComp

    We are an approved Signcomp fabricator. We have always ordered straight from Signcomp. The problem is we always had was waiting for the supply house to approve the order. Great company to work with.
  11. Painting PVC letters

    We use Mathews. On a second note since its so much work to sand the edges and have them decent we switched to acrylic. A bit more money for matl but almost no prep labor
  12. Ridding Chinese LED Failure

    I think it does not make a difference what continent its made on its how its made. This will include materials used eng. ,assy. methods and QC. I am not a fan of much not made in the states but I know the the good old USA can put out crap as well. I am no fan of China but to generalize is not always accurate.
  13. routers

    I do know shops that have Gerber and they also seem to like them. I only worry that Gerber came into the sign Biz like a lion with cutting edge technology 10-20 years ago and has not made any move forward since and everyone else has passed them by. On a second note none of these brands and others will not run without need of service. IMHO that is the key a 100 grand machine sitting is useless. I want parts the next day or the software glitch fixed in almost real time.
  14. routers

    I agree with the exception of get a 6' table. We end up cutting a fair amount of work for other shops that cant go above 4 or 5 feet wide. If you want to wait until Jan we are selling one of our older 5x10 Multicams to upgrade to a new 7x12 Multicam Apex
  15. routers

    I guess you got the same email special as me
