how do you get rid of scrap vinyl?
Ok we all have boxes full of offcuts and scrap vinyl, the offcuts go in a few boxes under my worktables and when looking for odd bits for little jobs thats where I look, but after a while you get bits that are folded and creased that won’t go through the cutter, these used to go into the bin then one day i was talking to a friend of my parents who is an assistant-head at a local junior school, he said they were buying bin liners full of scrap vinyl from one of my competitors at 50 quid a piece, now this made my blood boil 👿 , this other signmaker was making money out of rubbish, good on him some will say, 😡 but not me! the schools have little enough money as it is without having to pay for other peoples rubbish!
So I said to this guy next time I have a bin-bag full you can have it for free and then proceeded to give it away to as many schools in the area as possible mostly just to p*ss off the opposition, but it’s kinda backfired in a good way as I seem to be the only fella in the area doing school signs. 😛
