Like so many of our jobs, this project came to us as a referral. We work at satisfying our customers and that often leads to referrals. We post a lot to social media, and it helps keep our name out there. People prefer to work with someone who they feel has satisfied others with their work. In fact, we tend to refer prospects to our Facebook page instead of our website for that reason.
It was a new housing development, so we worked with the developer on the sign. They wanted something clean and traditional, and within their budget. I spent about 1½ hours meeting with them and doing the drawings.
