with over 40 years in sign making...

Geet Faulkner

  

    40 + years from billboards to wall graphics, gym floors and truck doors, spraying sign cabinets and lexan faces, fleet graphics & vehicle wraps, hand carved signs and gold leafed fire trucks.


    I have worked as a business consultant, shop manager, salesman, graphic designer and trainer to sign shops and franchise sign businesses.


    Throughout the years I have had training from some of the industry leaders, countless mentors and have trained dozens of individuals in many areas of the sign trades. I have had articles published in trade magazines, and have awards for design and many of our works published in hot rod and motorcycle magazines.


    I offer a structured and very hands-on style of teaching with practice exercises, printed training materials and projects for students to keep featuring the skills they have learned.
