Readers Spread the Love in the First Mailbag of 2023

Plus a California sign pro digs her new Brain Squad T-shirt.




Feel the Love

  • I love the magazine. It seems modern, on point and current. Love how you have been focusing on running a business. I just think everyone can relate to the content. — Dennis Stanworth, Stanworth Sign Co., Nevada City, Ca
  • Love the neon signs. We have a neon shop and it is still as fascinating and beautiful as it was 25 years ago — keep ’em coming. — Nonnie Luther, Cadillac Sign Co., Norwood, NC
  • Company cultures, wrap crews, channel letters, and product reviews (see St, November 2022, pages 23 and 31). — Alexandra Lund, Bismarck Sign Co., Bismarck, ND

Content Cravings

  • I would love to see articles about companies and people who have created niche solutions for their clients and turned that into a productive profit center for their business. — Ian McLellan, Hill House Graphics, Bristol, RI
  • More focus on smaller signshops that have been around a long time (see page 24). — Louise DiGiacomo, Signs of Art Graphic Design, Philadelphia

Big Asks

  • What are the best UL alternative current quotes to convert to UL? Seems like a fortune since we only do five to six electric signs monthly. — William Dehaven, Gulf State Signs, Winter Haven, FL
  • What are other companies doing to offset continued supply chain interruptions and delays? Likewise, what are suppliers/vendors doing to help sign companies? — Matt Brasel, Indigo Signs, Fargo, ND

To The Tee

  • Thank you for the T-shirt! I haven’t taken a selfie with it on as of yet. When I do, I’ll send it in! — Cindy Gillihan, Gilly’s Super Signs, Placerville, Ca
