Chuck was first featured in the March/April 2001 issue of SignCraft. He has moved a couple of times since then before landing in his native San Diego. Now 64, he’s using the Internet to market the brand of creative sign work that he enjoys along with other types of sign work that fit his shop.

I work out of a studio in my home. I have about 600 feet of workspace—the garage plus one adjacent room in the house for my office. It works very well for me. I’m pretty low-tech. Believe it or not, I use a Gerber Signmaker IVB and a Gerber Edge. I outsource anything that requires bigger equipment than that. That way I don’t have to stock the materials or spend time doing the work. I know some shops prefer that, but I’d just rather be doing other work.
