Re: John Mayer, Born and Raised Album Cover art

When I grow up, I want to create an album cover like David Smith or Roger Dean. Seriously, great work, David.

I don't believe I would use Gator Foam outdoors.
I would not hesitate to use HDU, cost is absorbed by the client. Knowing the product will hold up for years is the first step to a good nights sleep.
You can use PVC with the same peace of mine.

Re: cut out dimensional lettering.

Rod, Do you have more information...? First, I determine where the letters are going to be used.. interior or exterior, 10' and above or below 10', and what surface will they be adhered to. Are you creating the letters from your design, hand lettering style, or are you using a standard font availabl...
