  1. ECO TYRANNY I don't usually bring politics here on the SS unless it's for a very good reason. But since a lot of what we do here in our own industry and how it affects how we make a living I'm going to share a particular youtube video of Senator Ted Cruz asking the president of Sierra Club some very, very simple questions that he's (Sierra Club) not up for discussing or debating. In fact the head of Sierra club is taking a political position instead of acting objectively. The environmental (product safety) movement is or "green" as most know it, has killed our industry like many others
  2. "NLRB Ruling Threatens Sign Industry Contractor-Subcontractor Arrangements" - Article http://txsigns.associationbuyersguide.org/item/47-nlrb-ruling-threatens-sign-industry-contractor-subcontractor-arrangements http://www.isa.myindustrytracker.com/en/article/63958 So I got this today and maybe I'm misinterpreting this but... It looks like ISA wants to come to the aid of the wrong side, AGAIN. First...as in most states, especially here on the west coast you can only legally subcontract when you yourself are a contractor, or licensed contractor. So when it comes to the rule of law, this

  4. "...We're not afraid to get into the trenches when it comes to road blocks....As a matter of fact, that's how we get things done..." - Lori Anderson "The International Sign Association (ISA) is laser-focused on what's happening this very second within the sign and visual communications industry." "As we talk to member companies we hear two constant concerns: (1) The challenges of finding qualified employees and. (2) The issues of getting signs built due to regulations" -Lori Anderson, International Sign Association Hate to interrupt the magazine pep talk but I would think one of the
  5. I don't know what it is about our very own International Sign Association but they continually get it wrong when it comes to anything electric either in our very own electric sign industry or even when it comes to generally lighting. ISA just posted this Forbes article on their Facebook page with an added "Have you noticed that city skylines look a little different at night? I am noticing.... I'm noticing your continual lack of understanding and being able to decipher someones marketing points and doctored images to sell a products which lies about return on investment. Why does I
  6. Being in the electric sign industry where government has a hand in everything we do and most of the time they circumcise (yes that word) our right to prosper and happiness. Here are two issues that make me nervous, and maybe everybody should be nervous too because I think when it comes to these issues with the make up composition of who's in these sign associations and the past omissions to act, or the positions they held/supported that would further regulate the industry we love and prevent us from continuing the work we love or make it a higher cost to us as well as the end users or consume
  7. I was wondering how this new or Old International Sign Association re-org ( Power Grab? )was going to shake down in the Trade Magazines, and SOT shines through. Wades digging deeper as any good journalist should. Both views are on display, not just the whacky marketeering "like" your post statements. There is something that even Wade see's while looking into this that I saw while all this was being shoved through, errr.......going through. This new engine that's being pushed through by the new/old order (depending on how you view the same ol faces) will work now, work tomorrow. The biggest qu
  8. Any of you feeling it yet? Maybe not at all. If any of you are somewhat of a geek like me (who enjoys comic books) you'll understand the significance of this image and how it relates to our very own industry. If not, you have a World Eater, debris from what it destroyed, and it's Herald. It seems like all the separate sign associations that had a separate individual voice are all gone now. Is the USSC next? Will they allow themselves to be gobbled up, errr.....merged, or will we have at least one association left with a "separate" voice? The market talking point is "we're having a lar
  9. I'm all for making changes in your life, whether it's personal or perhaps a career change. But sometimes you have to wonder who it is that runs your industry, or the people who can influence changes in your industry. I've always had questions that for these trade groups that never got answered and always wondered the "why's" behind some important decisions or omissions to act that took place, and continue too. I've run into people who one day sold lift gates for commercial trucks then the next day their LED salesmen for a LED manufacturer telling me that LEDs are the best thing on the marke
  10. SIGN INDUSTRY POWER GRAB? UPDATED 09/11/12, See Post 25, Page 2 The ByLaws & Re-Organization Proposals Bylaws & Reorganization Proposal.pdf It's been interesting for me to see this all slowly unravel. Without Electric Sign Industry websites such as The Sign Syndicate.com you would normally just read in the trade magazines about a large Sign Association such as the International Sign Association taking over and pretty much absorbing the smaller sign associations for the industry "good". Just a short description about "once you join your local association you're also a member of I
  11. Here's an attached doc on some recent changes that will affect how we build and install electric signs. Anything stick out for you? Something you disagree with or glad got changed? What would you like to see changed? 70_A2013_NEC-P18_ROPballot.pdf Some of these requests are comical
  12. Got some news over the Fathers Day Weekend. With the hard efforts from a few Neon Manufacturers and The Neon Group, they've finally broke ground in getting U.L. to recognize Neon as part of U.L.'s new program (ULVS) UL Verification Services (Sign Energy Certification Service), UL Green Leaf. The Neon Group has been hard at work behind the scenes to get this accomplished without the help of any other sign organization/association or International Sign Association. If you're interested in not only having your electric signs be UL Listed (UXYT), but you can also pay the extra money to have you
  13. This ISA Expo was very interesting I have to say so I thought I'd start a new thread from our Sign Syndicate Meet & Greet thread instead of taking a tangent. It wasn't as big as Vegas as I've commonly heard but that's not even important. It took us about 1 and a half days to see everyone we wanted to, or at least we tried to see everyone. Kirstie & I had the most interesting conversations I think we've ever had to date. We had a lot of people tell us their glad to have The Sign Syndicate around, and what it brings to the industry, and what it represents in their minds. We had a select
  14. Orlando, FL - International Sign Association (ISA) Show Only $1.25 Each - Now Available in North America AxiomLED has announced that it has begun volume shipments in North America for its AXLE9-SW65 white LED for signage and channel letter applications. 'The AXLE9-SW65 is the brightest and the lowest cost per linear foot system in the world,' stated Manuel Lynch, CEO of AxiomLED. 'We have had massive adoption of this product in places around the world doing major brand conversions and we are now bringing this product to North America.' The AXLE9-SW65 sells for $1.25 each and is over 100 lu
  15. Why is it that every Sign Association is filled with a bunch of "Do Nothings" who are regurgitates/throwbacks from one Sign Association after the other??? Or serving in multiple Associations at once???? They pride themselves in turning government regulation into a profitable program for themselves for all to assimilate to INSTEAD of doing what's right for the industry they represent, AND fighting it! Are they all from France??? Seriously! Who is DUMB enough to spend money to PROVE they are green???? I thought it was just a MARKETING term to throw out at the ignorant public all to sell a good
  16. There was a post at the ISA linkedin group where a fellow colleague was asking about national sign companies that are late in paying. What the relationships have been with national vs local shops. Kirstie commented about checking out the review list we have here http://www.thesignsy...ociations-list/ It's ironic we happened to send out a mass email on the same topic she commented on and the whole tread over there got deleted??? I can only assume it may have struck a nerve where some of the very board members and chairman companies that don't fair well in the list, maybe they don't want it
