    I think a few things come into play here Gary.

    Buying it in from trade suppliers, cost and turnaround outweigh manually doing it yourself.
    You then have the fact, machine cut letters are better than hand-cut!

    However, skilled workmanship is hard to come by these days and this is just a sign of the times, unfortunately.
    Regardless, if you can do it in-house and have the time to, then why not?
    We still fabricate things manually, on a daily basis. The sign industry is so diverse, you would be crazy to stop staff from learning these aspects of sign making.
    Take big sign companies like SignFab, they still manually make their built-up letter and solder the returns. and make an excellent job of doing it too!

    I am sure many here still do this type of thing in-house.
