With the volume that they make, they ARE making a Profit. Computers have made it easier to do the graphics & make the screens. Then add the frit & fire it off in an oven.

Order all the vendor catalogs you can, buy the Books that interest you [signs, pumps, globes, cans, etc etc]. Checkout the Oldgas Bookstore.

Were there any Washington Chief pump plates????
The only original pump with Washington Chief that I have seen had a decal and not a pump plate...... it also looked nothing like the sign on ebay....... matter of fact it only had Washington and no Oregon, Montana, or Idaho. It also had a POLYFORM decal just above the WC decal.
