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

New Jersey Sign MAGIC Workshop less than a month away!
I've heard there are still some seats available in New Jersey. I've made my plane and travel arrangements. With the Sign Magic Workshop in New Jersey now less than a month away I'm starting to get very excited. It should be a fun and informative time. We'll be working on all kinds of 3D routing techniques and also talking about marketing, designing, and a whole lot more. We'll also be doing plenty of hands-on work, learning how we do our painting and glazing in our shop. A little sculpting is also on the menu and it is my bet that each participant will go away knowing they can do a whole lot more than they thought they could going in.
The Sign Magic Workshop is to be held in at the MultiCam East Technical Center, Hackensack, New Jersey on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, November 6, 7 and 8, 2012. Seating is limited. I hope to see you there! -dan
