This was Spruce John. They all have to be delivered by May 12... so busy few weeks. I will try getting them all in one pile for pictures before shipping them off.Gotta agree on the paint David. That's what sets it off.
Gonna show the rest of em, Scott? What wood did you use?
No sales calls, met some new lodge owners on a long plane flight one night, and they were discussing work to upgrade the old lodge and cabins. I showed them some signs on my I pad, and a few months later after several emails and designs mock ups in Aspire they committed to buying 6 signs. Another fellow walked into our little gallery and started following us on Face book. A few months later he commented about signs for his lodge, i did some designs for his consideration and he just place an order for 10 small signs and one 48" sign. the Grayling is for him.Now, THAT'S a sign! Great execution, terrific finish. Hope you charged a ton for each one. Tell us a little about how you got the job? Referral from someone else; made a sales call?
I ran into a lady woodworker yesterday at Rockler who is making signs and plans to do it for income after retiring. I'd like to pass this on, as well as something about reaching the many hundreds of lodges in the dozen or so mountain resort areas around here.
