Are you interested in making signs? Do you want to start your own sign shop? Maybe you already own a sign business or you already work in one? Well, you have picked a great industry and one that has been close to my heart for over 25 years.
The Good News:
The beautiful thing about owning a sign company is that it allows a level of freedom that few people ever get a chance to enjoy in this life. There is freedom to create, design, meet people, travel the world, make a profit, take interesting vacations and, most importantly, the freedom to LIVE your life. Needless to say, many would love to make this a reality.
The Bad News:
Owning or running a sign business is NOT, contrary to some opinions, a way to get rich quick (of course, if you figure it out, please let the rest of us know). Being in the sign business is definitely NOT as easy as cutting some “sticky” letters and putting them on a banner. If you truly want to be successful then you better be prepared to work very hard learning about everything from computers to welding. Most importantly, you need to be ready to learn how the business of signs really runs. It’s not for the faint hearted but, boy, what a ride!
