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

Why not in the real world too!

In the last four days I've grabbed more than twelve hundred photographs of everything Disney. What I've seen is nothing short of breath taking. Such wonderful attention to detail and story telling at every turn. As I've marvelled at all of the work and especially the signs it makes me wonder...  why can't we sell and create this kind of work in the real world - in our regions. I believe the answer resides within us and I am resolved to design, create and sell much, much more. I know from experience we can do it and it has to start with our own studios.

As an example I show three wonderful signs with brackets that point the way to the washroom near Pinocchio's attraction.
