Hello from Portugal

Hello there!

As many others around here I "discovered" you via The Letterville, where I have been a daily visitor for the last couple of years.

My first 19 years were spent in Barcelona. Back in '95 my father started our business here in Potugal and then, 6 years ago, I joined him.

Thank You for your warm welcome!

Mike, I've been in the sign business for the last 8 years. The three first years, while I was finishing my education in Barcelona, I did my apprenticeship with my uncle in Germany or with my father in Portugal (in my holidays), and in july '97 I became a "professional".

Most our work is vinyl related: vehicles, sign boards, banners... One of my bigger costumers is a company that makes ambulances. As my father says it is difficult to explain what we do, we do everything. :D

Robert, I'm glad you like Portugal, especiallly Lagos. Don't hesitate to come back and bring friends, tourism is a very important business here :lol:

Hi Alex.

Had a run down for the bike rally in Faro this year then cruised back up the coast to Porto, inland to Braganca then back into Spain and the ferry home. Great holiday.

Drank gallons of Sagres and a fair bit of Port. One complaint though was that I didn't get to have any Sardines.
