I would call our work “small commercial signs.” I don’t have a boom truck because I don’t want that liability and overhead. We letter and stripe a lot of fire trucks for Darley, a fire apparatus manufacturer nearby. Their trucks go all over, including about 25 per year to China.
We do a lot of fleet lettering—vans and trucks for contractors and construction-related companies. We’ve been lucky to have a steady flow of customers who like what we do. We pay attention to detail and use top quality products, and that keeps them coming back. We use 3M vinyl on them all.
We do some Gemini letters and a few lighted sign faces. We also print a lot of decals on the Gerber Edge printers. We still do some sandblasted signs, though not as many as we used to. You hear other sign people say how their area is kind of depressed, and customers don’t have as much to spend on signs, and that is sort of our situation here. We do bluecollar signs. Gold leaf and 3-D carving are the exception here.
