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

90 days and counting

We've attended many trade hows through the years and actively participated in various shows as well. The biggest one to date is the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions EXPO which is held in Orlando, Florida. The event boasts more than a thousand exhibitors and thirty thousand attendees from the amusement park industry around the world.

After attending the show since the 1990's we finally pushed the go button to be a vendor there this year. We built our display booth this past winter while things were a little slow. In the next couple of weeks we'll bring it back into the shop, clean it and tweak it with our latest stuff before sending it down the road to Florida. We've booked our travel arrangements, bought the required insurance, and let our theme park industry clients know we'll be there. We've submitted our booth plan and even entered it into the Brass Ring Awards for prize consideration. We're ready.

Now we count down the last ninety days in anticipation...
