Re: Gatorboard Delamination

A while back Laminators Inc. had a problem with their Luster Board (alum/ply) material. They started to use a softwood core and I experienced a del-lamination of the aluminum and ply. They have since gone back to the harwood core. I'm guessing this solved the problem. I got off easy on my go round. ...

Re: Looking for good software advice.

The one thing that Jes is interested in is the ability to cut vinyl which I don't think will happen with Corel or Illustrator. I've used Signlab since the beginning of time.

What Tyler is saying is correct. Something about these modern auto glass surfaces. They repel like Rain-X.

Glad to hear your mother is o.k. They lowered the death count to 24 just
heard on NPR. This was grand on the tornado scale. Heard outside Moore
the the highest winds in the world ever recorded of 300 mph happened
back in '99. Is that true?

Re: LP's are back ! Born and Raised cover, John Mayer

Now that's what I'm talking about! That album cover looks even more
vivid than your original art. Vinyl is a happenin' thing again I hear. CD cases are
so whimpy. Very interesting to see this show up in vinyl.
You did real good on this project Dave.
