Last week's survey results...

  • Less than 12 months if you are turning out a quality product. Much longer and maybe never if the work is sub standard. So basically it all depends on the quality of the work produced.

  • It s not about how long is about how well your pricing & services are. you maybe in the business for only few weeks and still people considering you as a professional printer. (ET SIGNS,  Masoud) 

  • I remember when my husband and I started in the industry 6 years ago, we were talking to an older gentleman who had once employed 10 staff, and business was booming. He used vinyl cutters and traditional signwriting formats like hand painted signs. Anyway he told us how now he just has himself and one other guy. Basically what happened to him was he didn't move with technology and expand to buy a large format printer, he just kept his old setup. He was complaining about how good it was in the "good old days" and how these "new printers" were ruining the industry. The truth is there are always businesses within every single sector who aren't as experienced and give their industry a bad name. I suggest new businesses learn as much from trade shows and other means in order to learn about the industry, but maybe certain "certifications" and licenses could be gotten to prove workmanship etc. It took me at least 2 years to get to grips with the industry, I had come from a graphic design background. On the whole I believe "new blood" in the long run can add quality to the sector. 
  • I am old school and time served. Been printing 40 years and I am still learning. Today people go out and buy a computer,,a laser printer and in some cases a printer cutter and set themselves up as printers doing business cards t shirts at cut rate prices. 
  • I don't think the question is "Before you are legitimate" Many new businesses downgrade any Industry by thinking business is all about price only. People work for companies, see the prices and think they can go out on their own "and be cheaper" Very few say they "can be better". So I would say you are legitimate when you run your buisness without destroying the industry and do your calculations on real costs including overheads before you quote a job and start taking business away on price only. And when you pay taxes like all other businesses. 
  • only issues we have is the larger businesses (multinational etc) not understanding their market space, and chasing all the work as low margin or businesses like Office Works moving into traditional print. Occasionally we see brokers acting as printers, cutting costs and pushing out low price work. 

  • I would rate that on your training prior to opening the business. But if untrained and you are not working with someone that has received professional training/or trade then I think this is downgrading the industry and you would need to be in it for 10 years before i would consider it legit. 

  • Perhaps people should be more concerned about what they are doing in their own business, rather than worrying about the skills of their competitors? Signwriters buy printers and call themselves printers - why can't a printer who occasionally installs a sign call themselves a signwriter? Perhaps printers should be getting upset about the poor quality of printing that some signwriters are putting out there.  

  • After moving a design based business into the signwriting field about 15 years ago, we are still considered 'newbies' irrespective of the fact that we employ fully qualified signwriting staff. Recently however our reputation for quality work and after-sales service seems to have made a significant impact in changing opinions. The derogatory comments are towards those who have no morals, who don't know their products & application, can't spell and produce sub standard work. If you don't fit into any of those categories - don't stress it - it takes time!
  • Are we in the "Printing" business, or are we in the Sign Writing, Sign Making / Manufacturing, Graphic Reproduction Industries? Firstly I find there is an issue with clarification of most businesses and where they should be classed and classified. Secondly I find it is not an issue of "NEW" to any of these industries that downgrades them but more to the point of how you act, perform your business, how you influence and impact the industry you choose to be in that will either enhance your chosen profession, your standing and reputation or degrade it and your industry. I have No issue with new players entering the industry, but I do have an issue with people who enter an industry with little to no respect for the industry, people who basterdise the trade by not respecting the real worth of the products and services sold and by their actions cheapening the the products and services and the good people / tradesman who work within it. Thus cheapening the industry - "Downgrading the Industry"....( Steve Baker Signs Pty Ltd , Steve Baker)
  • Considered legit by whom? By yourself, by your spouse, by your clients or by fellow sign shops?
    You might get a different figure from 1 week to "Never!" depending on whom you ask and how they define or assess this legitimacy. Any 'downgrading' tends to have an associated drop in material quality as well as design effectiveness, and a lessening of base price associated with it. i.e. a gigantic obvious 'amateur' label.  
    Those who engage in these practices do wreck it for the rest of us in this 'Buy a printer and call yourself a design shop' age. In the older days you would quickly be out of business for doing inferior work, or for a lack of understanding of the basics of materials - when to use acrylics, lacquers, enamels or screen ink, how to coat something out so it will last, how to edit a mistake with the least possible fuss.
    These days so many seem to not care in their chase for the $, and it is this ignorance, this apathy, that is the problem. What irks me even more is the ignorance factor where they tell a customer who comes in looking for something that this new quicky sticky shop does not offer, that what they are seeking does not exist at all.
    I am heartily tired of being told by clients who call up that so-and-so says 'Nobody does (take your pick) real gilding/real striping/scrolling/brush lettering/ painted banners/painted murals/ etc... any more'. Lies like that due to ignorance of newcomers also wreck the trade as some clients get conned into accepting inferior work from that which they originally sought. Of course also there is possibly also a kind of jealousy perhaps associated with any new business coming into an area, 'stealing' ones' clients and undercutting other established businesses.
    I was told not long ago by a local long-established full service signshop who'd just been and quoted on a job, that a competing quickie-stickie sign shop was waiting across the road to go and measure it up for a quote also.  The owner of the quickie-stickie shop simply said "Whatever they quoted, I'll do it for 10% less, and left his quote at that."
    Sad, truly sad. (Traditional Signs, Ian Stewart-Koster)  

  • I have been signwriting for fifty years and I believe that I have almost reached legitimacy...
    If Newbies wish to be taken seriously then firstly they should consider their place of education to be more important than merely somewhere to eat their lunch. True professionalism (and legitimacy)starts with being able to spell and to count. The next skill is to be able to show manners and respect... without which you will never gain acceptance from your customers or your peers. (Old Kevie)
  • What a load if crap. I've been hearing that sort of comment from the "old school" sign guyd since the introduction of the first Sign A Rama. Now some 16 years later those "old school" sign guys arw still blaming others fir their own bad business practices. Sign A Rama as a group have revolutionized tbe sign and graphics industry and they have created more jobs than any other sign group.

Sunday Morning Sex

Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's house to visit her 95 year-old grandmother and comfort her. 

When she asked how her grandfather had died, her grandmother replied, "He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning." 

Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that 2 people nearly 100 years old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. 

"Oh no, my dear," replied granny. "Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong." 

She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, "He'd still be alive if the ice cream truck hadn't come along."
