    if your gonna read any read signupdate. the rest are repeats of whats in that anyway. mostly adverts and stuff about new contracts being won… im speaking with them just now.. hopfuly things should start to change pretty soon…
    but yeh… if any sign-update… its twice as thick as the rest for a start 😕

    must agree with rob there, the UK mags are well rubish to say the least, the yank ones are pretty useful but the best of all is this what youre reading !!!!!!!

    you cant ask a mag to help you out with a specific thing but you can on here !!!!

    I did get a mag from the province of yang chow hung ye min, China which was fantastic, full of how to’s, pics, stories etc 😉

    I’ll have to try to get my hands on a brit sign mag. I can only get Sign Craft here. It’s interesting how different signs look in the states compared to down here.

    Its much the same over here Leeroy, there is a world of difference between signage in the States and the UK. Mind you America is such a large place I expect the signage varies alot from state to state.

    i have 3 main trade mags.
    sign update, printwear and promotion, and images.

    the later 2 are clothing/screenprinting/embroidery related. these 2 are completly free, all paid for by the adverts.
    I was quite supprised when i ordered sign update, to be told there was a subscription, albeit small.

    then again i`m a tight git. but if 2 mags can do it, why not others??

    hi kev, ive not heard of those two before.. 😕

    there are some trade mags free… but normally very thin and little other than adverts! sign-update is no exception but i do know they are heading in the right direction..

    Printwear & Promotion and Images magazines are ideal for anyone doing any sort of garment decorating, As kev says they are both free, and are worth having even if you don’t do any garments, as they have plenty of info on suppliers and trade services too.
