    Very nice signs, designs, and finishes. Is this your full time gig?

    Yes, full time. Gotta pay for the shop tools.
    We also teach Illustrator for those interested in learning the Vector world.
    Also do some font design now and then.
    Love wood. Can't help it. Gotta have sawdust around.

    Just looked up Daves location and found a potential large market nearby. That would be in El Passo which is approx 25 miles away. There are several sign business there but none of them dedicated to router work. At my shop we don't do any vinyl sales, realty sign or anything else but dimensional signs. If I lived in Chaparral I'd be looking at making large router and carved signs with my Texas friends. Could be a business with offering routing services to those existing shops.

    Everyone knows Texans have deep pockets.

    All that big business is locked up by the Juarez shops across the border.
    We’re using the internet. Much larger market for us.
    We have signs in Russia, China, Japan and Spain ( the ones we know about).
    Don’t really like working with plastic and pvc.

    We’re just doing vector art in wood.
    I throw my stuff up on this forum to help encourage anyone that can be encouraged.
    It actually boils down to BUSINESS. How much business sense one has can make the difference between HOBBy and really making money.
