  1. Hey guys! I am looking for a new company to order flex faces from. The company we currently use only warranties them for a year. If we print any kind of colored background they are fading really bad within months. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. TIA
  2. Has anyone performed work for this company, Skyline Sign in Conway, Sc, or subcontracted for them? Any information would be helpful. We like to check all companies references we subcontract for, either by this forum or by the review list- they aren't listed in the Nationals review list on this site. Thank you, Teresa
  3. We have been covered up here in Ky too, dfor past 2 years...Every year exceeding the last..We purchased 2 new trucks this year and hired another crew...Life is good!
  4. I am not affiliated with 1 source but I must say they do an excellent job on fabrication of pan formed faces. We have ordered several times from this company and were very pleased with their products. The staff is very nice there as well.
  5. lol, some must think our trucks run on air, lol...I bet their sign company wouldn't go out to a job and eat the cost, would they?
  6. We have been doing some subcontracting with Nationwide Sign Service and Repair in last couple of months and I have to say they have been great to us. Pay was almost 60 days first time, he said it was due to the hurricane, but the 2nd time was 45 days pay. In which most companies are 60 day pay. Frank and the staff there was really nice to us.
  7. Yes, I was getting ready to say the same...Garland at S&S is great guy to do business with!... Also, you could try Sams club, but the quality probably won't be as good as S&S signs. Ooops, I just noticed this was posted back in 2011, oh well, someone else may need to know.
  8. I know Coast Signs have some of them, but not all of them. Does anyone know who else has those? Thanks.
  9. It is Allen Industries, in case someone else needs to know. Thanks, Teresa
  10. We here at Taylor Made Signs would like to wish each and everyone of you and your families a VERY MERRY and BLESSED CHRISTMAS.... and a HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR! I also would like to say a special thank you to each and every one of you at for the advice and for welcoming our company into your forums/site. Teresa Taylor Made Signs
  11. Thanks for the replies, but I have a copy of the manual now...thanks everyone.. Teresa
  12. If you only knew this guy, if you told him that he would be like "ah make me the XXX sign, I dont care what they say"....This customer owns several chains of different restaurants and hotels...we have done all of his, so far, and they are still standing and without any questions. I feel like that the customer is the one owns, bought and paid for the hotel, they are having to pay in order just to carry the name of the franchise, and as long as they are following/meeting the branding and identity of the franchise, than they should be able to chose whomever they wish to fabricate or install their signs, but that is just my personal opinion. I know why they do that, the "approved vendors" are double what another company would charge, as we encountered that with another franchise company we fabricated for him....we just kinda leave that up to him and the corporate offices. He is type of guy that don't always follow the rules...hey, we just give the customer what they want...I agree with you about the approved vendors, but if he calls says he wants us to do it, than we do it, but we do follow the PMS codes and standards for those franchises.....The pylon sign is already there, we aren't having to fabricate anything but the faces, it was a previous Holiday Inn....as long as we get paid, he can deal with corporate on his end....I think he has a packet with all this information in it, or should have....just thought I would ask if anyone may know what the PMS codes were....He has another Quality Inn we done for him before, I believe I found the branding and identity packet on the internet, but now it is no longer available and its been yrs ago, I would have to go to storage files to find it, but was hoping not to have to do that....thanks again for the responses... Teresa
  13. Yeah, that is what I have done in the past, call corporate get them to send the branding and identity signage packet it to me...but some corporate companies act as if they "ONLY" want certain sign companies to do their franchise signs...well, this customer "ONLY" wants us to do his, so yeah...I think that I'm going to have to ask the customer to call on this one and get the PMS colors, specs, etc....thanks again Teresa
  14. Does anyone know the PMS color codes for Quality Inn signs. Thanks,
  15. Thank you, you are exactly correct...I appreciate the feedback and was just curious how other sign companies are making sure they are getting paid for surveys... Thanks again, PS: Any other companies feel free to reply, would like to hear from you Teresa
  16. Hello, I'm just curious how I can charge, or write on my proposals that there will be a charge for site survey when bidding on a job if not awarded the job. Normally, I add that price in with the bid/proposals, and most of the time we are awarded the job, or if not awarded it's usually something small that we don't worry too much about....Long story short, back in March I was called out to do a survey and place a bid that was 1hr each direction travel, and was onsite 1hr with the truck, taking measurements, etc, for the building and pylon sign that was damaged by a tornado....It was going to be a fairly big job and I met with the guy again and was awarded the job thru a contractor, not the owner himself.....I was told we were awarded the Job..Sent in all the vendor pkts, etc, paperwork, etc....I call back today, as I haven't heard back from them in a while and was told that the job was given to another person while "he" was on vacation and the company decided to go a different route with the job...Now, I am going to be sending him a bill for the 3hrs survey, and he was ok with compensating me, but only after I had asked. I was wanting to know if anyone else has encountered this??? If so, would it be possible to "put in the fine print" on the bottom of my job bid/proposals that there will be charges that apply for site survey if not awarded the job??? If so, could someone please help me with the "wording" of how I would say this....Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks, Teresa
  17. Does anyone know who has or does the "Lee's famous Recipe" signage??? I know that "complete signs" is one company, Ive sent them an email but I haven't received a response back yet, but is there others??? We need to get a copy of the layout, with PMS colors, embossments, etc....most of the time I can get this information from the corporate office, but Im not getting much feedback from them....thanks, oh and this is for the pylon sign ...if anyone reading this may have that information, I would greatly appreciate if you could email me a copy.....thanks again...

  18. Hello, just wanted to see if I could get any feedback on subcontracting for Belfor USA group "property restoration"..If so, was your experience positive or negative??? Your replys are greatly appreciated. Teresa Taylor Made Signs 606-785-0441
  19. We are looking to buy a used 5ft x 12ft sign cabinet....customer doesn't want to invest that much, that is why we are looking for one used for him, thanks....any information, please contact Taylor Made Signs 606-785-0441
  20. Hello, Im needing help finding a website or source where I can find USED restaurant signs for sale. I have a customer that was a victim of the tornado. He has a Lees famous Recipe and a Dairy Queen...he is looking to go the "USED" route, he says...lol...I quoted him the NEW price...but anyways, if anyone can be of help here, I would greatly appreciate it...I tried "craigs list" , no help there..Also, I thought maybe there may be some kind of restaurant forum or something that would have classified ads....any help would be greatly appreciated...oh what im needing is the pylon sign faces(1 DQ-new design) and 2 Lees faces...thanks again, Teresa Taylor Made Signs 606-785-0441
  21. Same here, we've been using flexi many years too and didn't know this either...you can find out practically anything on the internet...its amazing how you can pretty much trouble shoot your own equipment anymore by looking on the internet...anything from working on your car to sign equipment. Who needs customer service anymore? lol....and its free, most of the time. Glad I could be of help to you! Teresa
