    New business sign

    looks great! my only nitpicking would be to move up "Daycare" and "Training" a few inches so the URL wouldn't seem so tight

    creating a 3d drop shadow outline

    create your text, convert it to outlines.. duplicate that layer two times so you now have a total of 3 layers.. leave the top layer alone (lock the layer, this will be the chrome text).. then on the middle layer, apply a stroke (black) and then convert the stroke to an outline and merge all the points on the middle layer. now goto the bottom layer (the black dropshadow) and place that how you want it.. Now you need to merge all points from the bottom and middle layer together. You'll be left with the top layer (chrome text) and the bottom layer (black stroke + dropshadow merged together) it's pretty simple, just awkward to explain

    i'm not sure what you ordered but FYI the 9.99 shipping doesn't apply to packages 70+ lbs and machinery (cutters, heatpresses, printers, etc..)

    Perpetual Syncing

    I run a different setup than you (usc tc + mac + scal pro ) but i remember having a similar syncing issue after upgrading osx awhile back.. had to revert back to my old setup. Pretty sure it was an issue with SCAL pro.. After that happened, whenever there's an osx update I backup my entire drive (just incase) and then apply the new osx update.. i know that doesn't help your current situation but it's a little tip for future reference

    if it's only printed on the front, use your regular desktop printer and print your contact information on the back?

    Cutting and layering multiple decals at a time

    i would try using some parchment paper..throw that ontop of your first layer, then you can slide your second layer around to get the alignment set..tape a hinge, lift the hinge and remove the parchment paper and your set.. repeat process for each layer

    Looking for someone who can vectorize this quickly please.

    The entire process of figuring out what font it is, finding/downloading and installing the fonts if you don't already have them, and recreating the logo should take no more than 20 minutes (i'm being generous with the time). This is an extremely simple task. Not trying to be an a$$hole, but I'm going to second the opinion that you might be in the wrong business.. and that's coming from someone who does this mostly as a hobby lol 2 great resources :

    that looks way too close to me
  14. I use 7x10 rigid photo mailers (like .22 cents each) for small decals and ship First Class Mail with tracking via USPS.. Never had anything returned back to me, and never had a customer complain that a decal was messed up during transit.
