“My favorites,” says Brian, “are imagination, hands, a #8 Mack brush and an Iwata Eclipse airbrush.”

If you dig back to the July/August 1990 issue of SignCraft, you’ll find Brian Schofield on the cover, adding the details to truck door lettering with an airbrush. The 27 years since have seen changes in technology and the economy, but Brian is still turning out custom signs from the same location with the help of Karin Levin.

“We have a very simple operation,” Brian says. “It’s just the two of us, still in the same shop. The production techniques have changed, but we still produce attractive, effective signs. We’re not the cheapest show in town, so people who come to us expect a little more. We seem to make it work.”
