We have a Cafe called, S&M cafe, in Cairo MO and not Moberly. I've always wondered what they serve with the pancakes.

I actually used to print signs, mainly on coro(the stuff that looks like corrugated cardboard, but is plastic. "coroplast," or coro) but we did it all. (If you have magnets on your car for a big sports team, look and see if it says "Fantastic Magnets!" on it. Our product was sold all over the US) One job for the state (signs for the boundary of some park trail thing) was on small metal signs....if you didn't load them in fast enough, and tried to slide them as the screen was coming down, the metal corners would just slash right through the screen. Ink goes everywhere....you have to clean up the mess, reburn the screen, reset it up, and start again. Plus, the silk for each screen cost us about $40. The answer is to put 6-10 layers of tape (similar to duct tape, but a little different, and wider) all around the image, to protect the screen. Well, the guy running the job didn't listen to us, and he broke three screens on a 100 piece job. I believe that was a shop record.

So those signs really can have sharp edges! ;)

Who knows but I'll bet they whip up some mean pancakes.
