Hello from a returning signmaker

Hi my name is gary in the essex area uk, I used to run a sign business from 1992 to 2002.
I left the trade but have missed the buzz of designing and seeing my work and products out there.

I realise it has probably changed quite a lot since my involvement but have decided to re enter the fray.

im still sorting out a few bits and pieces before i am fully up and running but im almost there.

just wanted to join this forum as we didnt have much internet back in 92 let alone friendly advice on various products and design tips

the sleepless nights trying to work out how to use corel draw with other programs.

anyway i'm sure to be asking for advice and help in the near future all the best Gary

Welcome from 20 miles north of Pittsburgh PA.
It's so convenient to be able to ask for help here, quite a blessing really.
If you don't mind some wisecracks from the peanut gallery.
:D
They didn't have The Internets when I started either!
Love....Jill

Welcome Gary - I'm sure you have a wealth of experience to contribute. :D

But watch out for Jill - she's got a sharp tongue especially after she's had a few :-?

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone, John singh is right. i missed the whole process from marketing, selling,design,manufacture and installation. i still remember how much fun it can be to get paid once you have completed that list though lol especially the big companies " we are only paying certain letters in the alphabet this month

Really looking forward to giving it a another go, and i realise its not easy out there

i'm in the benfleet area hope to build positive relations with some sign companies near me as i will need to pass some signwork and fitting on at this stage

cheers again all the best gary :lol1:
