Wicked weather

Last Saturday I hurried to cover the boat before the storm came. We just fixed a rip on on the quick cover we use for emergency protection. Well, the storm had other ideas in mind for that cover. The wind was about 50 mph and switchy for about 5 minutes. I even had to adjust the dock due to the wind bobbing the boat. Sunday was beautfull, 70 and scattered clouds.

Brian is moving

Tomorrow I am helping my son Brian to move to Mt. Pleasant, MI so he can get back to school at Central Michigna University. He will be finishing his degree in computer science. I wonder if he can figure out Vista?

What I do

The morning I was born my mother was screen printing 7 foot bus benches, so you could say I have been in the business all of my life. I began to help my father Arlie Edwards hand letter at the tender age of 5 by filling in his lettering. As time passed I began to graduate to higher forms of lettering. By the time I was in 9th grade my lettering was on par with the old pros.

Our business has evolved over the last 60 plus years from brushes and paint to the digital age of rips and vinyl. By the way we began printing on pressure sensitive vinyl in the 50's Some of the first police decals ever made were printed by my mother Rosemary. Only the brushes have changed, not the art. A computer is mearly an expensive pencil in which to express a design. In much the same way as a piano is with a song. Some can play it, some think they can.

I love my work, it is my life!
