  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. How blessed is your life! Thanks for sharing!
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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...
  7. 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 $$.

      Sorry Gus, the boss is asking $39000 for this ladder truck.

      Best of luck to you!

  10. 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.
  11. We had a company come out and pick it up whenever we had a pile. We didn't get paid for it but they did all the work. Unfortunately they aren't doing it any more. Now it's just trashed.
  12. We have a graphtec - our designer hates it, says it misspells words and gets scales wrong... He had his own one man shop before he came here and has a summa and absolutely loves it.
  13. Wasn't that part of ImagePoint's downfall? and I have a form that asks for net 45 - in writing -with a signature. Lien if not paid in 60 days and the lien fees will be added to their invoice. I've not had to do it yet, but if someone goes over the 60 day mark they become a pay up front customer. And if they won't sign it we don't work for them.
  14. Eric, we didn't use our sign associations - it seemed like we were just sending money out for nothing. Then we found out some interesting programs. Our local county was changing the sign code and we had lots of input. Long involved process, but ISA had all the info in the right order and actually sent out James Carpentier to go thru the ordinances and attend meetings. That was a huge benefit! And our local sign association (NorthWest Sign Council) is trying to get cities on board with an engineering program - they have engineering specs for signs, so if the city/county will accept it, we can use it at $70 versus $200-$300 for a "wet stamp" engineer report. NWSC also sends us weekly safety meeting sheets and keeps us informed of any city/county code changes. There are more programs in place, we just never made the effort to contact anyone about them. I've looked in the RCW/WAC codes for Washington state and still can't determine if it's legal for out of state contractors to hire us to work. But we do it for nationals that we like - the ones who pay on time, send us QUALITY product and have all the testing lab labels. We won't install crap. We always prefer installing signs we make in our shop. We had a great year last year and this year looks to be even better.
  15. We do charge for travel time, but they try hard to eliminate it. One of the most frustrating aspects of our job is our state Labor & Industries. We have to have so many licenses just to walk out the door it's silly. and in Washington state, we can work on parking lot lights and replace like-for-like parts, but we can't replace the entire fixture with - say - an LED fixture. And the rules get interpreted by each inspector (especially the newbies) differently. That's a real buzz kill.
