They decided that worst case sce- nario, they would use the machine to build the project they needed it for and sell it if it was just sitting in the garage collecting dust. That didn't happen and today Neathawk Designs is going strong. Neathawk works with customers to determine which substrate would work best for their project and budget. When a sign is painted, no matter what the substrate, it is hard to tell if it is wood or not, Neathawk says.

Featuring a custom in-house-made bracket to hold the sign. Image courtesy of Neathawk Designs. Images courtesy of KC Custom Signs. 3 0 • A P R I L 2 0 2 0 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S
