Thanks for the kind words! It's been a journey.

Here's a pic of the first stand being finished back in 2012.

They're made of hard foam. You can coat them in polyurea or just paint them with high quality exterior paint. They can pretty much make anything you want. Pretty cool stuff!

Got the office phone number put up today.

Got part of the sign up today! We had constant 25-35 mph wind gusts so we weren't able to do the big letters but we'll get it done this week. I think it's going to look awesome when everything is up!

The reason I chose today to hang the sign was because it was the kickoff to this thing called Open Streets OKC. It's where almost a whole mile of NW 23rd Street gets blocked off and thousands of people can frequent local businesses without worrying about the busy vehicle traffic that this street has. THOUSANDS of people saw us hanging the signs today and already have people talking about us in the community!!
