Default Looking for a supplier for sign makers

Hello,

I am looking to find suppliers for sign makers online and everything I found on Google seems to be with suppliers for Vinyl or CNC oriented businesses. I do all my signs by hand, hand carved and painted. I don't use any vinyl or CNC machines for my work.
Can I get any help in this aspect? Can anyone send me some links for suppliers?
Thank You,
Timis

You did not fill out your profile so we have no way to try and find you anything local. What supplies are you looking for? Wood? Router bits? Templates?

What Supply's are you talking about?? If its wood your referring to than That's that I do. I hand rout signs. I get the bulk from eBay. but layout letters I get from Dave & Eric's in Arizona. They also carry templates of various shapes and sizes, router bits some that where designed by them just for wooden sign makers. And if that wasn't all they have you tube videos that show you how to advance your skills. I use MARSH ink that I get from Granger supply, but some times can get a better deal on eBay. My regular 9-5 job is a machinist and I make solid carbide drills, But I make them for metal use. The best wood bits on the market to day I would say in White side, and that's all Dave's carry's. Hope this helps

Marsh Spray Stencil Ink (BLACK) is the best ink to use for lay out purposes I have found. You can get FREE SHIPPING at ZOROTOOLS.com if you spend $50.00! The best wood that I have found for FreeHand carving are Cedar & Pine. Be careful with the pine because the spray ink might bleed into the grain and cause sanding issues when you sign is completed. Use a sanding sealer on pine before you spray the stencil ink. Paint on sanding sealer works better than the spray!
