  5. I'm getting ready to launch a new website It's going to sell blank a-frame hardware for $10. I am also going to start carrying a line of pre made designs and was thinking about making them $29. My goal is to get a lot of volume so I can keep my (already paid for equipment) moving at night and generate a 2nd revenue stream. How much would you pay for a sign like this?
  6. I'm about to share some personal information - not my comfort zone to do that on something like this, but I would love to get advice from people in this industry. I have a day job. A very good paying day job - That I am pretty much miserable at. I have switched companies several times (private to government and back) and I think it is just not the profession for me. While I do well at my job, I just am not enjoying it or the long hours plus the stress. In comes my vinyl hobby. I have had this hobby for a while, and I have considered starting it as a side business. Selling wall decals and such on Etsy. I am finding it hard to get time to even get that going since buying my new 24" cutter since I work such long hours. I have an opportunity to do some signs and such locally coming up, and it has gotten me thinking that I could add local signs to my business and maybe go all out and do it full time. Go big or go home right?? I had originally thought I would dip my toe in and try it out, but I just don't think I have the time to spare right now with my job to do so and really give it a fair shot. I have no Graphic Design background, but I do have extensive design background in AutoCad and GIS. So I have some basic knowledge of how to technically do some things (vector design/drawing etc) but the graphic design part of it is something I know I will need to work on. I am prepared to put time and effort into learning some basics on my own and if it becomes necessary take a class at a local college. Also I am looking for a business that might allow me to work from home. I want to start a family, but I also want to have 2 incomes without having my kids in daycare all the time. I grew up with self employed parents and I know it takes alot of work and long hours, but I also was never in daycare so I see the pros and cons. This kind of thing is a choice everyone has to make on their own, but I just can't see myself working the schedule I do now and having children. So my new found internet friends, I guess what I am trying to get around to asking is can you share your general opinions and experiences concerning this sort of thing? I realize business' take a while to get going, but if I were to commit full time to something like this and give it my all, I am wondering if this is realistically something I can make a decent income at. Also, is this type of sign business stable? Those are the sorts of things I would love for you to share with me. I live in a rural area, and I think I can market to the locals (Realtors, business' and clubs and such). I can offer them a local option and save them a long drive or an internet order. Thank you!

    Coroplast Sign Thickness

    Hello! I am new to sign making, and I am just wondering what thickness (mm) coroplast is typically used for signs? What is the durability of different thickness? Obviously I realize the thinner stuff is going to be cheaper, but I want to be sure I get the right product for the application. I have someone asking me to make some 2'X2's and a 2'X6'. I meet with her on Friday, but I wanted to have an idea of what thickness to suggest. She will be bringing me an example of her older signs so I can probably measure to see what thickness it is and see how satisfied she is with that thickness to make the final call, but any information or experience you can share would be great. Thank you! Marie
  8. Hello, have never bid on a job this big before, would appreciate anyone's help!! 1. 4- 4'x8' double sided signs 2. 4- 4'x8' one sided signs 3. 4- 3'x5' double sided signs 4. 4- 3'x5' one sided signs 5. 24- yard signs (18'x24")- all double sided. -All the big signs are wood signs. All of these signs have a maroon/burgundy background with yellow lettering. They are political signs. I've done signs for a while, but I would appreciate any opinions/help! A few months back I did 3-4'x4' single sided wood signs @ 250.00 a piece. These had the 4"x4" posts with fancy end caps, so I'm kind of going off of this. but my quote is coming out way high. I think?? I'm going to attach a pic of the lettering. Like I said, any help is appreciated!!! Thank you, jus kind of lost on this one?

    outsourcing signs

    I am new to the vinyl industry. I have been doing shirts and signs with vinyl. It is a side job that I would like to build up over time. One of my customers wants some sponsor signs for a golf course. I have done them for him in the past with vinyl and he has been happy, however he wants to have some later on done in full color thats printed instead of vinyl. Problem is most of the time it is 18 signs and they are all different. So I am looking for a good place to outsource some signs to at a good price. I want to be able to still make some money off of the job but still stay at a good price. Any suggestions will help. Thanks Scott
