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

Workshops! Workshops! Workshops!

These days we are thinking a lot about our Sign Magic Workshops. The next one to be held here in our studio is now only a week away. In the shop preparations are in full gear! I'll be posting some step by steps of some of the name tags I am making for our attendees later today.

Plans are also underway to have a workshop in the Ukraine or perhaps Moscow sometime later this year. I received a copy of the Ukraine sign magazine this morning and noticed a full page ad for the workshop. Unfortunately I am only able to read a few words. 

There is also some serious talk of a workshop on the east coast in the New Jersey/New York area later this year. No firm dates have yet been set for that one. But as things firm up I'll be posting details here.
