"I have been in the sign industry for over 13 years now and the Elite program was an invaluable experience. You cannot make the connections you will make in this program anywhere else. The sign industry is huge as a whole, but this program gives you a small community that you can relate to, and people you can call on when in need. It gives you the resources and the network to do so. This is an experience that you will be able to build upon for the rest of your sign career." — Amanda Lauridsen, Account Manager/ Designer, Precise Sign, AZ
