It helps to develop a reputation over the years. If you can do that, it really makes your business run more smoothly. I like to develop an image for my customers and help them be more successful. Most of them seem to appreciate that.
I just turned 53, and that makes me one of the old-timers in the area. [Laughing.] I’ve done a lot of work here, and have always tried to keep the signs interesting and appealing.
When you work alone as I do, you need to get other companies to help with production if you want to keep your volume up. I outsource a lot of my panel and letter cutting work to a friend of mine who has a Shopbot router [www.shopbottools.com]. He can cut things in a matter of minutes. It’s not worth me getting the jigsaw out. I’ve got plenty of other work to keep me busy, so I let him do that part.
