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

2014 Sign Magic Workshop a success!

We had a high energy group assembled for our 2014 Sign Magic Workshop. Our guests were from all over including Nevis - Alberta, Newark - California, Hickory - North Carolina, Jackson - Wyoming, Prior Lake - Minnesota, Invermere - Roberts Creek - Vernon - British Columbia, and Aitkenvale - Australia. Jeff Hartman, one of the creators of EnRoute came from Denver - Colorado to help with the technical side of things.

This eager group soaked up everything we shared, took tons of photos and notes and did up some pretty spectacular projects during the hands-on workshop time. We took the time to tour the group through three of our recent projects and included some hands-on time on the bumper boats and Bucking Bronco rides just for fun.

Each participant learned our painting techniques and discovered how we create the magic in our studio each and every day.

This coming weekend we will be hosting the Sculpture Magic Workshop with a full class signed up and eager to go. It's going to be fun!
