Our clients and our signs in the Asbury Park Press

December 11, 2006

Although Carroll’s and The Cranberry Bog are long since closed, we got a bit of exposure in the Asbury Park Press about the place. Quite a few years ago we began making signs for the Reynolds Family at the restaurant. When the restaurants abruptly closed all kinds of rumors were flying. We were recently visited […]

Reflective traffic control and street signs

November 11, 2006

I’m typically blogging about all of the “glamorous” signs we make here at Typestries. Yes, most of the signs we make are carefully tailored to be excellent business promotion tools. But, we also make signs that serve a specific, often very limited purpose. Case in point with this project. You’re looking at an order for […]

Preparing production files for large mesh banners for Southern Regional Rams Marching Band

October 11, 2006

Here’s what I pretty much look at all day long (not just this particular job, of course). I’m grateful for my large Apple Cinema display. With such a huge screen I can keep all of my pallets organized and hop around between the design applications that we rely on everyday. Here I’m working on re-creating […]

We Love great design……

The Signs and design inspiration of Cars The Movie Cars is truly amazing. For an Adult. In a design world. In the sign business. Did I mention I’d go again, without Logan? It was that good. I’m Not the only one: Letterhead Discussion of Cars LINK”

June 1, 2006

The power of the sign, it’s the “I never knew you were here” comments after we install your sign or vehicle advertising. It’s the sale the day after you pick up yout completed vehicle.

Using a CNC Router to cut individual plastic letters

March 1, 2006

One of our most versatile tools in the shop is our CNC router. The machine, made by Gerber Scientific, was not inexpensive, yet has proven it’s worth time and time again. Here we are cutting a set of plastic letters that read "Sales Center." for Lighthouse Development in Manahawkin. Yes, they are upside down, that’s […]

Introducing our newest Printer Operator!

January 5, 2006

My Son, Logan seems to have an affinity for the Arizona 180 Printer. Maybe that’s because one day around when he just turned two his little fingers found that black power switch on the front of the machine…..and Daddy didn’t notice right away. Not a big deal except for the fact that switching it off […]

That’s A Lot Of Paint

January 3, 2006

When you paint lots of dimensional and carved signs for 10 years, you wind up with lots and lots of paint! At one point we had twice as many cans as you see here, scattered all about the shop. I was determined to make it easier to find the colors we needed, and the tall […]

Usually first…..but

December 20, 2005

In all honesty I really prefer to be first…..but Lincoln Sign beat me to it a while back. Heck, they are the published sign shop blog originators! I’ve been watching the blog they have for quite some time….and must give them credit for finally getting me to get my act together and get this up […]
