Encouraged by a master sign painter Mike Chenail began hand lettering signs at the age of 21- the beginning of what is now The Graphic Garage. The skills required to be a "sign painter" in those days were highly specialized, including training in many different trades. The old-timers in the business held on to the "secrets" of the trade, only passing along advice to the most motivated or talented young upstarts. Though it was not natural for a "southpaw" to letter signs, given that even the alphabet was designed by a right-hander, Mike was all the more determined to learn.
At the age of 25, a motorcycle wreck would severely alter the course of Mike's life. However, at a time when many people would consider giving up on life after a serious accident left them paralyzed and reliant on a wheelchair for their mobility, Mike was ever more motivated to persevere in life. Now with more than 35 years of sign making and graphic design technology experience behind him, Mike brings a wealth of talent, skills, and capabilities not found in other sign companies.
