Two months and counting

Happy New Year all!

It’s hard to believe that it is February 1 already! Looking at the calendar there are only two months left to get your pieces designed, built and shipped out to the Sign Challenge at ISA in Orlando. We have yet to see much of anything from most of the competitors but I am sure everyone has their ideas locked down and the build well in hand. We’d love to see some sketches and pictures of progress.  The sponsors are eagerly awaiting to see some of the designs and sketches too!
Peter and I have our pieces finished, ready to palletize and ship out in a couple of weeks to make sure they are on hand in plenty of time. We are currently working on the sponsor’s dimensional signs as well as the trophy which will be presented to the winner.
We look forward to seeing all of the entries and all of you in Orlando in a few short weeks!
