Hello from Belfast

Hi everyone. I am starting a small business here in Belfast, starting simple with an eye to growing into a full bespoke electric sign company. I am from the states and started out backspraying sign faces back in the day. When vinyl replaced the backspraying, I did a few other things then came back to the sign business and learned fabricating. I have spent the last 10 months teaching myself how to use inkscape and sign cut and am to the point where I can design basic things and cut them on my cutter. I have also been teaching myself the differant methods used in the UK such as the folded diabond tray sign and the built up perspex letter. I have made alot of aluminium reverse pan type letters in the states, but I would almost compare making perspex letters to making neon because in both you have a hot totally uncontrollable material in your hands that you have to subdue and control.
I have got to the point that I am ready to open for business and will likely start selling next week.
Thanks for all your tips and tricks. I have learned alot reading these forums.
