    Just for the heck of it, I thought it would be interesting to list our DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS with Sign Making. Here's our list (after 3 years experience): 1. Price...we are lucky to get $20 for a 6"x20" sign around here. It's an economic thing and most people are careful with their spending in...
