How I Got Here...

From as early as the late 60s I have been involved in the making of
signs and vehicle graphics. Before computers, when letters were
traced and hand cut, I would help my dad in his sign business. I was
on scaffolding, next to a semi trailer when we put up the first
Controltac film. All the 3M big shots were there to see how their new
product actually performed out in the field. Since then I have applied
vinyl graphics to trailers owned and operated by companies such as
Wrangler and Allied Van Lines. We used to travel the Midwest and
South decorating/installing signage on 50 trailers in South Carolina or
100 in Detroit.

Then at some point I got involved in the screen printing side of the
business. Working for some of the largest commercial screen printers
in the Phoenix area, I handled the accounts of several familiar
companies based here in the valley. I have done signs for CSK Auto
owns over 1300 stores across the country and locally operates as
Checker Auto Parts. We also did most of their in store point of
purchase displays, decals and window signage. Fry’s Food & Drugs
was another key sign account that was mine until they were bought by
Kroger.

Finally, the one hour commute each way to and from work took its toll
on me and I made the decision that I had toyed with for several years.
