    now I'm pretty sure you guys would prefer pavers over stamped concrete, that's not the question.
    for those that do stamped concrete, do you "sign your name" somewhere on the walkway, driveway, etc?
    walking around today doing estimates, I can't tell you how many times I saw the driveway signed. I find that to look hideous. if I was the homeowner, I would not want some contractors name in my driveway.
    to sign or not to sign, that is the question....

    Maybe the area they signed was an area that they will have to come back and fix after it cracks, so they thought....why not?

    so by your response, does that mean you are a "signer"? i would have never pictured you for one. ;)

    I never prematurely sign. In fact I can go forever w/o signing! :weightlifter:

    J/K Jodi! Seriously, We have experimented w/ engraved pavers w/ our names on them, but we always left additional pavers incase of breakage or the homeowner wanted to replace ours. But signing a permanent thing like concrete is very unprofessionl IMO.

    Slightly different scenario, but have you ever seen a gravestone with a dealer's sticker? The local gravestone installer sticks a gold label on his headstones with his name & phone number. Dozens of them in the local cemetery.

    I have a small stamp, kinda abstract, that I stamp the inside of my concrete curbs with. One strike, on the end of the run. It gets covered with mulch after cleanup of the equipment and work area.

    Nobody but me knows it's there.
