  1. I think my supplier is doing the same thing. They won't tell me that, but I got the same response "that I can sell you" - well, exactly what does that mean?? Sounds like you have plenty, but are doling it out to your customers as you see fit?? Not cool! I saw an ad from my old supplier that they were making and installing "partitions" too. Making more money on Covid than they can make selling directly to us.
  2. I would never have imagined in my life time I would have seen the entire Country shut down. It is so heart breaking to hear some of the stories we are hearing. I can't imagine being in CA or MI where the Governors are just not listening and are just keeping everything closed when they have seen that opening up slowly in other States has worked with no problems. Few people had enough money in the bank or savings to last a month paying bills with no income - much less 3 months or more. The one thing that is going to be hard is to get people to come back to work! Most are making more sitting home drawing unemployment than they did working. Got an e-mail from the Governor last week saying that if I offered my employees their jobs back and they refused to come back (I never let any of mine go - been paying them to sweep the floor and clean up the yard) I needed to let the State know and they would cut off the unemployment. Sad to say, but that's the only way we are going to get some folks to go back to work. Stay safe everybody and hopefully this thing will be over soon!
  3. I have been getting some of the same replies when I send e-mails. It's really sad. Hopefully we can get this economy going again and get back as close to "normal" as we can. If we continue to stay closed we are all going to be in a mell of a hess!! If you survived the recession you may survive this.
  4. I second that Snoochie! Erik, please tell K Girl that we are so proud of her and thank her for giving so selflessly even when it puts her own family at risk. That cannot be easy!
  5. So sorry you are having to close for so long. Hopefully when you are able to open back up things will be booming again! We have had the best 3 years of our business and then this had to happen. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
  6. Our phone is literally not ringing AT ALL other than the PMs checking on the jobs we already had. We are so far behind because of all of the rain that the guys work daily on the back log of stuff on the days it isn't pouring buckets outside. I have never seen so much rain in all of my put togethers - Now the coronavirus to add to it. I am praying that thing moves out of here with as little damage as possible and our lives can get back to "normal". Hope all of you are well and remain that way!! We shall survive this!! How long that takes is left up to us. We have to all do our part and do as we have been asked so it doesn't continue to spread. Stay safe everybody!
  7. I use Tony at Vector-man - he is AMAZING! He will typically have a drawing done for me in an hour or less. Depending on how much detail. Has never charged me over $30! I would recommend him to anyone that needs a fast turn around on art work. tony@vector-man.com
  8. OMG!!! Holy crap batman! That's a rat alright. Yep. I would be filing a mechanic's lien TODAY! Do not pass go. We have to break these folks from using and abusing us. If you are like us, we work too hard for our money to have to beg to be paid. I am so sorry this is happening to you. I will sure add these folks to my "hit the bricks" list if they contact me to do any work!
  9. Oh, they are just trying to get out of paying you. I thought it before, but I know it now. That's the oldest trick in the book - "we didn't receive your invoice on time or invoice filed late" - That's why I always save every e-mail I send the folks. Good thing you had yours! Hope they don't owe you a pile of money!
  10. If it actually says that you have been paid - do not sign it!! I have signed a couple that say "upon receipt of payment from vendor, sign supplier will ....." - not that I had already been paid. It feels like they are trying to sucker you into something - and if they won't return phone calls or communicate at all - listen to that little voice. It won't steer you wrong.
  11. I think you did the right thing. Especially since you said the project had already been a nightmare. I think if I didn't hear anything from them in the next day or so I would go ahead and start lien process. Sounds like they are looking for ways not to pay you and tried to get you to sign off on it! Good luck with this one. That's why I love this site. You can ask anything and get honest opinions and help. Let us know how it works out so we can all flag the company!
  12. I had a customer last year that wanted me to sign one that said "once paid x amount of dollars" - I didn't have a problem with that one because it didn't say I HAD been paid. Had it said I had already been paid, I would have never signed it. Just check the wording closely. Some of these folks are trying harder every day to find ways around not paying or short changing!
  13. This printer is still for sale - if you know anybody that needs a printer give them my info, please!
  14. WOW! That could have been so much worse. I will show this to my guys as a warning of what can happen when you don't do what you are supposed to do. I agree after watching it several times that the steel wasn't cut all the way through. I don't think it was anything to do with the rigger or anything he/she may or may not have done - although I think the straps could have been a little more substantial for that size sign. You can see when the crane goes to pick it up, it snaps back when the steel lets go. The guy with the torch in his hand is a very lucky human being. Another few inches and it takes him and his buddy out in that basket. Scary, scary, scary. I bet the owner of the place isn't too happy he has to "rebuild" that iconic sign!! Not to mention what it did to his truck!
