Weekly Photo Challenge – Signs




a raceway mounted, LED illuminated sign being tested in shop



If there is a photo challenge appropriate to my life – it would be signs.  I have been working for a sign manufacturer and installer for about 10 years.  The company was started by a close friend in 1985 and after he passed away in 2012, I ran the business for a year and a half until a buyer could be found.  The sign above was built in our shop.  Per the explanation under the photo, the sign was being tested for functionality, plus it was undergoing an inspection – a UL inspection, of which I am the UL technical representative for my business.  The photo below shows the final ‘installed’ product.

I realize this sign may seem ordinary, but to me, it is anything ‘but’ – a lot of effort went into fabricating this sign.  You may see a sign on a building, however, what you do not see is the design work, the back-and-forth dealings with the customer and property owner, the permitting, the fabrication, pre-inspections, installation, post inspection and collection of payment.  This particular sign was, well, let’s just say an en’light’ening project!
