House Cleaning

Written by: David Buck

Well that time has come for the shop to clean house. Since moving to Florida to a smaller shop room is at a premium, so most if not all the beer signs in stock has to go. I just have no room to work on new / repair signs. So all reasonable offers will be […]


New stuff

Sorry that I have not added anything for a while but it has been rather busy in the shop these past few weeks. Then, with the ice storm and bad weather we have been having, well it’s been fun. Check out the new customer signs and repairs to see what I have been up to. […]


Special Painted Sign

Written by: David Buck

Well here it is. A local business called and said that their sign company called and backed out of job less than 2 weeks before the grand opening. I was called and asked if I could give them a hand. The sign requirements were new to me and I had not done this type of […]

I’m afraid of the dark.

We have all heard that from a young one feeling scared when the lights are out.  Well a caring and thoughtful grandmother came to me with a request, ‘Can you make me a sign for my granddaughter that she can use as a night-light please’. She said that her granddaughter liked to do artwork all […]


Sometimes you just have fun.

Written by: David Buck

There are times you have to think outside the box as it were.  I had a customer who wanted to give an inexpensive gift as a promotion. He also wanted to keep costs under $50. Trying to design a neon unit that would fit into these parameters, I came across a transformer that I had […]

Written by: David Buck
