Default Designed my Banner

HI guys. Yup, I've been m i a again. Been an interesting year so far, albeit an expensive one. Between motors blowing, washers crashing, and furniture, it's been interesting, to say the least. Also got a new job; full time, at a local college, where I'm back into my office field again after over 6 years of searching for a place to go.

ANYway.... with the new job (and much better pay) I decided to go ahead with three things: New business cards, a banner, and hopefully the trailer for traveling weekends to craft shows. The trailer will be the hardest part. I saw one by a guy who's here in Michigan, reached out to him, asking about his trailer, and where he got the plans. I guess a gentleman from up there somewhere gave him the plans. When I asked if by chance he would be willing to share, I was met with rejection. But, that's okay. He was really nice, and we chatted for just a little bit, and I invited him to here (he's got talent!) and told him if he ever wanted to talk shop, I was up for it. in regards to the trailer, I guess I do it the hard way; There are pictures of the build progression of it, and I'm hoping to be able to go off those, if only for an idea of what to do.

So here's the picture of the banner; the business cards of course look like the banner, but with contact info. Ken was really stuck on the KB Sign Worx, so that's what it will be. I also included it in my fb page so it can be found kb sign worx or out of the woodwork. I may be changing the color scheme on the Custom Routed Signs portion... I want a color to stand out, and blue is my favorite, but not sure. As for the card, I still have to modify the bottom line. Not thrilled with it.

Hoping to get out into the shed today to get a little done. Really need to make another tablet stand. I've kinda taken Ken's over since mine was snagged by our Aunt in New York when we went.

Barb, I like the blue on the first sign and think it could be incorporated into the second sign. Keep in mind Blue is also my favorite color.

Looks great Barb, like the fonts too

At first I wasn’t liking the starting price on there, then I started thinking about it, and it may peak peoples interest more

Thanks Rick. The ones that I've pre-made-simple are those for $10 Rick. Custom start at $25 for a simple sign.

Well I like your idea of having the less expensive signs to draw peopleís attention. Then when they see whatís available they may be inclined to spend more on the high end stuff

Glad to hear the news, we miss you when you're gone. How's Ken? I like the banner, simple, straightforward.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Easier to sell ten things at $10 each than it is to sell one thing at $100 each.

That banner should attract attention quite well, certainly better than what I came with.

I like KB SIGN Worx. Has a nice sound to it and congrats on the new job.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thank you, Tom. I miss you guys too. I miss being in my shop, too. Hoping to get out there soon.

Ken is back to work for the season, and doing good. He got anxious for good weather and brought out some of the outdoor furniture from under the tarp. I warned him not to do it yet, but did he listen to his wife? Nooooooo! He no sooner brought them out, and next thing we know, we got a second blast of snow, cold and ice... I told him it was all his fault Spring went back into hiding for two extra weeks or more
