Erik Dickson’s roots in the sign industry go back to SignCraft’s early days. Trained as a signpainter, he had added computers and a vinyl cutter—with 16 fonts!—when he and Cheryl, his wife, were first featured in the May/June 1989 issue. Now celebrating 35 years of Erik Designs, Erik continues to turn out his mix of vehicle lettering and signs in his hometown.

A world of change: The first issue of SignCraft that I got had Emmett Morelli, the Las Vegas showcard writer, on the cover. That was about 1980. How the world has changed since then! I went on to Butera School of Art and learned how to hand letter. Those are my roots, but I had to learn and adapt as computers became more involved with the industry.
