For the most part, there’s not really much new here—we’re still doing the same custom three-dimensional signs we’ve done since we opened back in 1998. We’ve never been the classic local sign guys. Our work is very specialized. Our market has always been dimensional signs for breweries, hotels and restaurants.

For several years, we did a lot of trade shows to promote our work, because we realized that we couldn’t specialize in the type of work we did and just serve our local market. In Europe, most trade shows last six to nine days, then you have the time spent setting up the booth before the show and tearing it down after. So it takes you more like two weeks overall.
