Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. Our most common sign is interior corporate identification. Normally dimensional letters made from acrylic or metal, but now may of our clients want interior illuminated signs.
Our industry is always changing, and we have to go with the flow.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Supply us with as much information that you can so that we can accurately price your sign. Sometimes a survey is needed.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. We listen to what our clients say that they want, but if we feel that there is a better way,
we offer our suggestions. In the end, we want our clients to be proud to showcase their sign to their friends and clients.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I do not just sell signs. I get to create beautiful "eye-catching" signs.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. How much will my sign cost before they tell me the size or any other pertinent information. I politely ask them to send us an email with the required information and hopefully an art file.
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. We had a client that wanted us to re-fill the holes that were drilled into an acrylic panel.
This question came from their building engineer.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. Our signs are not sitting on a shelf. All of our signs are custom made, and that takes time. We do our best to accommodate every client, no matter how little time they give us to get the job completed.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I was an art consultant for 15 years until the recession hit in the late eighties and framed art became a luxury item that our corporate clients were not as willing to spend for. During that time, I had a client that asked if I knew of a sign company. I ended up supplying them with their sign. So, I started to ask art clients if they needed a sign. I sold a few signs. The art business was put on hold and I started to learn the sign business. I enjoy meeting and speaking with people. If I like the product that I am selling then the rest is just a learning process about your product. I still sell art when I see a need for it in an office or when an old client calls.
