It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one of these machines - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Along with the CNC router I discovered the wonderful material called Precision Board and the glues, primers and other companion products they offer. Since then we have gone through many tons of the material using it in most signs and projects we tackle. This journal will chronicle our many adventures both past, present and future. I'll talk from the perspective of someone who pushes these products to the creative limit on a daily basis. I'll be adding to the stories two or three times each week. -dan

Eighteen months ago I issued a CHALLENGE to my sign making friends. The CHALLENGE was for everyone to create one sign or project that was for themselves. It was to be  sample for their shops. The sign was to be of the type they would make if cost was no object - the type of sign they dreamed of making. In our shop we upped the ante, creating one sign each month instead. These signs worked beyond my wildest dream for us. They've been honored with many international awards, been featured in articles and most importantly brought in the type of work we WANT to do.

Today I received word the CHALLENGE is still going. The CHALLENGE, along with pictures of our projects is being published one more time - in Russian this time. A six page feature is to be published in the biggest Ukrainian Sign Magazine.

It is my sincere hope some sign makers there take up my challenge for themselves!
