    Hello all My name is Neil Wilkinson and I have a small sign and graphics business outside Lisburn N.I. Ive been in the business for quite a few years now but am relatively new to the forum. I have been posting for a while now also & In a true backwards style im only now getting round to introducing myself properly. Any way i mainly concentrate on vehicle graphics and have now taken the plunge and built a new purpose built workshop with fitting bay downstairs and office and cutting room upstairs. Its almost finished now and i cant wait to eventually get into it as it will be such a treat and step up from the shed i currently fit in. Im fascinated with all the posts and pics you guys put up of some of the wraps you do so ive enrolled to do a wrapping course in the next couple of weeks as this will be very beneficial to me when i move in to the new place and put a big push on what i can offer . Right thats enough from me now . once again thanks for such a great site.

    Yes thats the one Rob. Its with James Deacon i think his name is . It was actually here that I found out about it so i’m extremely grateful for that as i was considering travelling to your side of the pond to do one.

    Yep that’s the man… James is very good at his job as well as his training.
    James actually does do all the wrapping demonstrations for Grafityp at Signuk. so many people will already know him from there…
    He also does the Roland courses too…

    the UKSB one in Ireland is the very first and has more or less been taken on by James himself on this one. But many more will follow and you will probably see magazine editorials appearing aswell as coverage on UKSB.
    Coupled with the courses we will soon be offering UKSG accreditation’s too… more on that will follow soon too…

    anyway… im going ff topic here… ill save this for another post.

    Hi Neil. Welcome aboard. Sounds like graphics are flowing through your veins. It becomes a life long obsession and it’s nice to relate to others that have it too. The industry has changed so much since I started in the early ’70’s but I still love it.
