"WHY ISN'T ANYONE USING OUR ONLINE AUCTION?"
That is what my boss asked me this morning. "I really don't know" I told him. And really I don't. I mean, it is a free online auction (some people pay at other sites!). It will quickly move the merchandise you want to sell. It is easy to set up. So, the only thing I can think of is that people just are not aware of it. Well, here it is! I am advertising it so that you, our valued customer, will know it is here for you!

"IT REALLY HAPPENED!"

Dear SignIndustry.com staff,

Just a note to thank you for helping us introduce the RoboticPainting.com and the WireJet to the sign industry. Our SignIndustry.com ad response was literally overwhelming. We set out to create awareness of this unique full color painting system on line as well as in print. SignIndustry.com has had by far the most immediate and cost effective impact of any media that we have tried to date. We look forward to a continued presence on your website and would recommend it to anyone who has a product to promote to the industry.

SignIndustry.com.........as we say on our links page "the name says it all".

My sincere thanks,
Deck Moser
