  1. Ebsco Signs

    We actually havn't done the install yet - the customer is buying the sign directly. I only just got the purchase order from Ebsco today. We have not installed for Ebsco before, but we have serviced a Stewart Sign and I believe it's part of the Ebsco family. I don't really know about their quality, my beef is that Stewart signs sold a high school a sign without any thought to where the sign is installed, what power is available, etc. These signs look inexpensive until you add in all the labor for things like power, prices of permits, shipping, service calls (we didn't install it so we didn't warranty our labor on the service calls).
  2. It's just one of those days

    Just another day in the pacific NW!
  3. Just Out of Curiosity - Day Without a Woman

    Oh, I should have said I earned it, but God blessed me with everything I have! Like the will to work for what I want ...
  4. Just Out of Curiosity - Day Without a Woman

    It's all BS - I was in the Navy for 8 years, 10 years as a secretary and now 19 years in this sign shop. You want equality? Do the job! Want a raise? Do the job! Deserve a raise? Ask for it! If you don't get what you deserve, find a job where you will. Just stop blaming other people. I'm sure there are situations/companies that really work that way. I guess I've been blessed not to be in that situation. There were some instances in the Navy where the "old guard" called me sweetheart and made inappropriate comments. I stood up for my self and called bs on it. The one guy who didn't quit got reported to our superiors (chain of command, it works) and then he quit. Retaliation? Nope. Our leadership took effective action and shut him down. Maybe this "Womens Day" was to call attention to women all over the world that are treated as second class citizens - not equal to their male counterparts (I don't know the real issue, I missed the memo)? How does our "support" by not going to work help these women out? wouldn't it be better to find organizations that support helping these women and donate a day's pay to them? I'm not entitled to anything because I'm a woman. I'm entitled to what I earn because I work for it.
  5. High-End Sign Bulbs In Action

    We put these in for one of our customers who has an old sign with chasing lights around part of it - over a year and no issues. Our customer is very happy not to be changing light bulbs every 3-4 months. They are much brighter than we thought they would be. Well worth the initial cost!
  6. Ebsco Signs

    Has anyone ever worked with Ebsco signs? Know anything about the products/sales / anything? We are doing some work for them and have not heard the name associated with signs before. Thanks!
  7. The sign business!

    How blessed is your life! Thanks for sharing!
  8. Plastic recyclers ??????

    Yeah, we don't have a plastic recycler anymore either, so it gets dumptserized. Same with our wood, but we do have a few locals that come out and get some of the usable stuff for sheds/coops etc. And we have taken sign faces home for yard projects (around the bottom of my green house). It is a shame that so much gets tossed.
  9. New Format

    I would never complain about a FREE website that has provided me with so much awesome/useful and in some cases MONEY SAVING information. And I, too, like the new format. Thanks for everything, Erik!
  10. ImageWorks

    I happened to be on Signweb (horrible forum site, but I had time to cruse thru the crap to find some relevant posts) that ImageWorks is out of business? We haven't done anything for them lately, I was just wondering if it's true...
  11. Seriously why bother

    Exactly the same in Washington State - the ones who play by the rules get the shaft with fees/inspections etc. There are a few cities that work with us but the majority just want their $$.

  14. Safety meetings... How do you handle them?

    Captive audience - We have payday weekly and safety meetings weekly.... works well for us! NW Sign Council provides us with all our meeting talks (like the ToolBox talks) and I get stuff from our insurance company and a few other places. Washington State has a requirement for an annual Heat Exhaustion/ hot weather safety meeting, and I try to keep in mind the various jobs we are doing so I can grab the appropriate info.
