80 • August 2016 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S ARCHITECTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL materials to ensure quality and on-time project completion. Dobie admits that he began purchasing equipment early on, something he may advise against in today's market. "Being the tool-junkie that I am, I bought equipment before we needed to," he confesses, offering up a suggestion for other sign shops to "use sub-contractors until you can clearly demonstrate an eco- nomic advantage." Nevertheless, Dobie's strategy worked with his business model, and he explains the function of his equipment: For routed signs: "Our two MultiCam router tables stay busy cutting aluminum, acrylic, wood, HDU foam and any non- ferrous materials." For channel letters: "After hand- bending letters for years, and after care- ful due diligence, we purchased a CLN Channel Bender, which we love." For digital printing: "Primarily for our electric sign needs, we have a 54-inch Roland X C-540 SolJet printer, and a laminator." John Dobie says that when it comes to out- door signs, it's not just how the sign looks, but how it will look years down the road. Designers at BSC can produce professional 3-D sign renderings for proposals and presen- tations, as it did when it recently won a job to complete signage for the historic 40 West Art District just outside of Denver. BSC has an arsenal of equipment includ- ing a MultiCam CNC router, A CLN channel bender and Roland digital printer. BSC has expanded its company to include electric signs, including channel letters and cabinet signs.
