A little road side stand

I finished this up the other day. Double sided MOD hand lettered. The green was cut in and the colors laid in. The panels (coro and vinyl) are attached with Velcro... as it's run by a nice fella that is wheelchair bound and has limited use of his arms and hands. When I first seen Billy... he was fig...

Re: Advice and tips needed for new Cutting and Design software.

Erik You might want to look at vinylmaster pro if your considering a new package. From what I've seen and read it's workers flow in designing is like AI and has a host of options as far as cutters it supports. No phone home or dongle to misplace. Very reasonably priced compared to Flexi or Omega.......

Re: Chris Fernandes Introduction

Welcome Chris,

I like the use of color on the sign... the robins egg blue and fire red really work well. And I agree the fruit looks well done.

Gerber 4B

Last year I did some for sale signs.... as I was leaving was asked if I'd like to take this. Which turned out to be a Gerber 4b that works fine. This is the first automated sign machine I've owned. When asked what type of machine do you use to make your signs? I use to tell people phalanges digital ...

I know your info was pointed towards Larry. I feel like such a Neanderthal when it comes to all the advances in social media and net workings as a whole. I guess I need to check my blinkers and step on the gas.

Re: cut out dimensional lettering.

Geez I hope those are the thickness... In the past I've used foam to aluminum to cut letters out of. As far as paint depends on the material used. Nowadays's I'd make a DFX of whatever needed and send over to my Bud with the water jet and pick up the next day. So unless you know someone with a water...

The first movie I recall seeing a sign painter in a film would have to be Badlands (1973) Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek.

Looks good.. I'll take your 100 deg as it's been damp and snowy here. Things are changing though should be more damp with a chance of less cold in few weeks.

Re: Hello All

Thanks Bob

I did just that. U shaped hangers with thru bolts that are sleeved to stop any sawing action and a set under to hang smaller sale sign.

Just built to scale... Over the years I've seen to many nice signs with ugly hanging systems. It's like an after thought to some.

Re: glue chipping...........

Hi Vance

Really have no advice to offer as Glue Chipping is a new venture for me. I do have a question as to the use of the spike tool. Are you trying to control the size of the chip by weakening the glue layer in a uniform manner?
