Wholesale Sign Manufacturing: What's Going On?

In efforts to be transparent with our clients and partners, we wanted to share with you a little bit about what is going on in our corner of sign manufacturing.

The Good News:

We have a smart and high­ly cross-trained team in place, we’ve just added a few new peo­ple, and we’re putting out great prod­uct (see some recent images above). We are always on the look­out for new recruits as well.

There is high demand for qual­i­ty sig­nage and we are con­stant­ly chang­ing and mak­ing improve­ments to accom­mo­date our cus­tomers’ needs.

3 Ways we con­tin­ue to opti­mize capac­i­ty and efficiency.

  1. Opti­miz­ing our mate­r­i­al stag­ing and stor­age areas along with fab­ri­ca­tion work­sta­tions in an effort to improve work­flow through­out the shop. 
  2. A sec­ond addi­tion­al CNC machine is set to arrive late sum­mer and will help with capacity.
  3. Tablet devices have been imple­ment­ed through­out the pro­duc­tion process in an effort to cut down on paper usage, opti­mize com­mu­ni­ca­tion, make real-time adjust­ments and stay on top of sup­ply needs. Employ­ees can make notes and update mate­ri­als in real time from their workstation.

The Not-So-Good News:

The sup­ply chain con­tin­ues to be unre­li­able and a mess, here’s 4 ways we con­tin­ue to help ease that bur­den.

In a nutshell: 

We appre­ci­ate and we real­ize how try­ing these times can be, Image­First would like to thank you for your patience and under­stand­ing as we are all work­ing hard to get through these busy times. 

If you have ANY ques­tions please con­tact us any­time!
