  4. I have been trying to hire an as in 1 experienced person for over a year...I didn't think it would be hard. What a fool am I. I guess I got spoiled with the people I had. Most of them had been with me over 10 years. (Treat them right and pay them well) When it was time to move on I got my eyes opened for me. Not a single worthwhile EXPERIENCED applicant. I too have taken to hiring for uncommon sense and train to be a sign person.

  6. We've done some "wet" signs before. Biggest challenge is the bottom pan being custom and NEVER leaking.
  7. Val the switch shown in your photo is switching the secondary circuit. I don't think that was ever acceptable. The driver is still energized with the switch off. All you could safely do is replace the LEDs.
  8. Your last photo shows galvanized letter backs!!!! I haven't seen that around here is a lot more than 20 years. What were they thinking with that mixed bag of crap LEDs in the other one.
  9. Why not print them on an edge? Print on clear vinyl reverse the instructions back with a double coat of white then black then the logo. All in-house or subbed to a local guy with an edge.
  10. We never use any suppliers other than McNichlos as Paul and Gary say they are great
  11. I walked away from one that had about 20 of these LED "replacement" lamps. When it was on it looked like a blue poka dot sign.
  12. Our price went from $129.00 for 4x8x.125 up to $195.00 in 2 weeks (10 sheet order) and the supplier will only commit to the price for the day quoted. They are going hog wild at our expense. I am now adding a new item to ALL of our proposals to cover any increase in material costs. I know my bigger clients will not like it but I'm not going to lose because they want to lock in the price and me pay any increases.
  13. Search "The Sign Bracket Store" They have a lot of hangers but you will pay
  14. Low quality cell pictures but shows the concept. The red letters are exposed look neon (clear lenses) The building has been painted out white since these were taken. The 2 "S" are real bird nests every spring and summer. This sign is on eye level with the road and only about 20' away so when someone stops at the traffic light they are up close.
