The sign trade can span a wide range of skills from hand lettering, wood carving, calligraphy, vinyl application, design, glass work, screen printing, woodworking, welding and so on. Of course, not every shop does all of them, but all of them require a fair amount of time and energy and usually a lot of practice.
Regardless of the skill or technique listed above, and the long list I didn’t include, practice is essential.
Over the years I have been writing articles in SignCraft, I’ve received countless calls from people in the “middle of a mess.” By mess, I mean they are halfway through a project, only to find it has gone into near disaster mode, and they are trying to find someone that can help them out.
