Hello from Brighton Just a few of us on here trying to brighten the place up, oh and Darcy you're not alone Cardwizzard is from Dublin

Quite a good place to steal some of the US techniques and sell them as our own. Just ensure you don't give 'em any tips back

Oh, that's awful, Rob

Hello Nigel, welcome to PT
We are trying to invade PT but to no avail.

It is a great place to learn from and I'm sure your business will grow thru the info gleaned from here. The business owners in PT are about 10 years ahead of UK painters & decorators, IMO.

Enjoy!

... Paul, stop calling me "Shorty!"
Cheers, Arch
