was thirty years ago that we purchased a small
commercial sign & decal manufacturing business from
a good friend of ours. One of my tasks on the very
first day on the job was to phone in an order for
supplies to Corbin Graphics (now SignEquip). It
must have been very obvious to George and Blair that
I knew very little about the industry because they
both went the extra mile to help me in every way
with product knowledge and screen printing tips &
tricks to get me up & running.
The Industry has undergone immense changes since
that day thirty years ago but, George and Blair
and the rest of Team SignEquip, you have not
changed in the way you treat your customers.
You continue to coach us every step of the way
for our transition into the digital era. You
have displayed an incredible level of
professionalism and patience while helping us
make that transition.
Thank you so much Team SignEquip for all that
you have done over the years to help make our
business a success. Your help and generosity
has always been appreciated and never taken for
granted. Congratulations on your success.

"...You guys got it right by
selling the best products and equipment...More than a
few years ago...you helped me through some frustrating
times. Technology, equipment, $$, and ideas that frankly
scared the crap out of me. Then (your support) took the
fear out of the equipment and technology. I learned to
count on the hardware and software... The comfort with
the equipment and software and your support enables us
to say yes to stuff that we’ve never done before and
also under some really tight timelines.
...you really need to understand that your business
belief of “WE’RE WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY” is
foundational to many a small organization like ours...we
know the support is and always has been available on a
email’s or telephone’s notice, we just merrily carry on
with no concern as to whether we can get the job done...
We truly thank you all at (SignEquip), for your
continued support and being there every step of the way
to making our business successful."

"Hi there, my name
is Phil Goy. I purchased a vinyl cutter from u about a
half year ago. …here is my new address to receive the
monthly flyer and so on.
Thanks very much for
the outstanding service."
"I have just
started a sign business, and after shopping around on the net, I
have found the best prices at (SignEquip). So, I bought a
(cutting) plotter. When my business got bigger, I needed
another one. (SignEquip) took the (original) one back for a
very, very good (trade-in) price. Now I have a plotter
that I'm very happy with.
What is also very important to me, that I can
call (SignEquip) anytime with the questions I have with the
software, or even my other (problems). AND I CALL A LOT!
(SignEquip) is not only a great supplier, they are
very nice and PATIENT people, for whom I'm very, very grateful."

"I was a relatively new 1 man shop and getting
busy. It was frustrating trying to mount larger pieces of work
and either risk a dry mount, or do it with a lot of fluids (what
a mess). I was introduced to the
Ezy Taper at the 2010
sign convention. I was hooked on what I saw....
...The Ezy Taper® is designed from
scratch for the sign industry, that quickly becomes obvious. As
far as I have found, anything that will fit between its rollers
can be stuck together, or even taken apart (I use it to remove
transfer tape from larger applications). I have even passed my
down hill skiis through to apply decalling (partly to see if I
could). A 4' x 8' signboard simply gets pushed through after
alignment, I don't even need to crank the handle.
...Any videos you find on the
operation of this unit will only be a fraction of what this
machine can do. It was a bit of a learning process when I first
started using the unit, but now I would never be without one.
...I now prefer mounting a set of graphics onto a full
4' x 8' sign board sheet, and then cut the sheet up. Prior to
the Ezy Taper, I would often need a helper with longer prints.
Now, by using a portable in and out feed table, I easily
laminate 4' x 8' sign boards (by myself).
I purchased the (Platinum) unit with the deluxe stand, and even
the stand is well thought out and has very useful
features. These units are new in North America, but long over

I just wanted to thank you for the great service and product.
Having never had a vinyl cutter or any experience, I have (the
Rav en CT630) up and working without a problem. It is MUCH BETTER than
I expected and I would recommend both the product and YOUR
COMPANY to anyone."
Clipart online service) site is just
fabulous. Wish it had come sooner. We would
have saved money on buying CDs. Sure saves
on fumbling through the CDs is right!”

"What can I say... 20 minute job takes 2
minutes now! Now we have more time for marketing..I love
this (Ezy Taper)! It's one of the BEST investments I ever
did! Great idea.

"Hi - this (Rav en) cutter you sold us works great!
Made quite a transformation in our business because we
used to outsource our cutting and being 20 miles out of
Saskatoon isn't as handy as now, just going from the
shop to the computer room.

"...my (Rav en) CT630 that I bought through
(SignEquip) is still a real workhorse in my shop.

"...it all happened in less than two
private organizations, we started out small. Didn’t
know anybody and for the most part, didn’t know anything
either. We’d purchased a small 15” Roland cutter...and really had no idea where we might go with
it. The group we purchased the Roland from really
didn’t care either. We found the product very limited
in comparison to the expectations of our small group of
customers, but it truly got us started.
Then...we made a visit to (SignEquip) in
Edmonton. Made what we thought was a big investment;
purchasing a 24” Raven
cutter. What a step up! Blair suggested that he
would take it in trade with no loss in investment
(within 6 months) if we
chose to move a bar or two up. Blair already knew what
we didn’t, that we would have to expand if we were
to stay in the business.
year later, we were back on (SignEquip’s) door step. He was
correct; we needed to move up with the available
technologies. Yikes, now we’re into real money. A
Summa DC4sx...All is well; then all of a sudden, a
technical problem with both the vinyl and printer cutter
occurs. All can be solved, but we can’t make our
deadline. A frantic call to (SignEquip)....
(They) came through with service
excellence. A trip to Edmonton, a short wait and
the contracted signs were printed and later put together
for delivery...as planned.
purchase equipment and support products at (SignEquip), you
can be assured that they feel the same about your
business success as you do and that they will do all in
their power to help you through the trying times.
Blair, thanks for seeing, before us, where our business
could go, George thanks for helping us build and
maintain our quality and timeliness reputation. Diane
and all the others, thanks for allowing us to sit,
watch, learn and chat in the back rooms when we had to
come in for help.
thank you all enough for all the technical and
business support and help that you’ve provided to

|"I was looking for a used
(cutting) plotter... just to use in my spare time, when I saw a posting from
(SignEquip) for a NEW plotter (Rav en CT630) with software for $995.....I thought too
good to be true, but I called them. (They) talked me into trying one
and in a week I had it. I was a sign maker for 15 years,
and I've owned and used probably a dozen plotters, and
for real this is my favorite one. It has an open design
so you can slide your film through, making it easier to
align. IT CUTS CLEAN AND SMOOTH!!!...And (SignEquip) is the best company in the industry I've ever
done business with. Why you ask....
I got the machine... and started moonlighting with it.
Well, after about 3 months I was so into vinyl again I decided to
start a new sign shop. I rented a place and started getting together
everything I would need. I put all my day job money into it (anyone
done this before??) I wasn't gonna be a regular shop, but a Store,
"the SIGN store, A complete graphics solution".... I have hundreds
of stock signs, stock decals, stock neon, and stock banners. It's
set up like a retail store but I do custom stuff, too.... Well, I
opened on June 2nd and it went great.... real customers on my first
day and everything. Well, June 5th a piece of neon from Ebay caught
fire and burned my store out!!! Ok, I'll rebuild. I called (them) to
tell them what happened, and that I could use some help, and right
away they're sending me out a new plotter...They told me they would do whatever they had to to
get me back up. Great guys (and for real the plotter's great....)"
