“I’m always looking for new products,” says Joe, “but we have standards that we use a lot in our work. We use a great deal of Duna’s Corafoam HDU board, PVC board in all thicknesses and aluminum composite material. Most of our finishes are PPG Acrylic Latex, Modern Masters and Matthews Acrylic Polyurethane.”

This is our 22nd year in the sign business. It’s a pretty typical sign shop story. We moved here from the Atlanta area with the idea of semi-retiring. In Atlanta, I had a hardwood flooring company. I also had some experience with CAD and had purchased a used Ioline plotter.
