Hello to all from a beginner

Greetings all,

Looking at starting my own business initially producing basic signs and promo stickers from vinyl.
Have been reading the boards for a little while now and really like the vibe and atmosphere, so friendly.

Planning on starting with a 600mm cutter and then who knows.(Already got Coral draw 12). Just to pick a make now, the boards seem an invaluable source in for this.

In the first instance this will hopefully supplement my main job but it would be nice to think I could make a reasonable living out of it eventually.

ANY advice would be gratefully received(and probably needed :D )

Anyway thats me.

Regards

Lee

Hi Andy and John,

Currently I'm an HGV driver(since being made redundant from management two years ago, wow doesn't time fly), and since I work nights most of my post's will be in the middle of the night. :o

Hi Lee, and welcome.

I am usually posting in the middle of the night too, so we may be on together from time to time.

I am about half a day ahead of you lot in the UK, so your midnight is my day.

Cheers, and ask away.

Thanks for all the welcomes :D

May have inadvertantly got my first commercial job (not bad as have no gear yet) doing the windows on the place I just brought some bathroom panels from.
They said to pop in to discuss when I'm in a position to possibly do it.

Ok so a word I'll be using soon is HELP :D as not a clue quite where I would start as even they don't really know what they want!!!!!

Lee, when it comes to window signs, Dewi is the master :o :P

Seriously tho, ask away. Collectively there is nothing we, as a group, don't know :roll:

Cheers, and well done.

Hi Lee

I too was made redundant from a management position that I held in the brewing industry 8.5 years ago. I decided then to set up my own business as a signmaker. Nearly 9 years later I am very happy doing the work I do, and now I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else.

Good luck with your new career - sign making is very creative and satisfying. I can guarantee you will make a good living at it if you go about things the right way. :D
