    Banner Long Time in the Making

    Cheers! I absolutely love my MR2. The banner is actually matte black, but the camera flash and the contrast between the gloss black Oracal 651 and the matte black banner makes it look gray. It's the same banner blank used by xJoey Dubsx in this thread and can be bought from USCutter here. I'm very pleased with how it came out and will be bringing it with me to the next MR2 meet. Lastly, gotta show off the inspiration.

    Banner Long Time in the Making

    Thanks! Now just to figure out how I want to mount it in the garage.
  3. I spent weeks procuring the materials, researching techniques, and designing the final layout. Making it only took one afternoon. Enjoy! And the process (BIG pics so beware): http://i483.photobucket.com/albums/rr197/JimB/Vinyl%20Cutter/SAM_0232.jpg http://i483.photobucket.com/albums/rr197/JimB/Vinyl%20Cutter/SAM_0235.jpg http://i483.photobucket.com/albums/rr197/JimB/Vinyl%20Cutter/SAM_0241.jpg

    Cobra SVT Banner

    Oh ok. I'd probably charge $60 for a single color. May be a little cheap though... I've never made a banner.

    What do you mean by finishing of the banner? Isn't it already finished when you buy it from USCutter?

    Logo Design

    Mailing yourself a design or idea is NOT a legitimate way to copyright a design. You can't prove that the envelope hasn't been reopened. That being said, you can timestamp your logo with a service like https://beta.certtime.com/.
  7. SignBlazer Elements easily imports Illustrator EPS files. I design in Illustrator, save in a legacy EPS format (may also work with the CS5 EPS format), and import in SBE w/ postscript scanner. All works great!

    What weight and style banner blank is that? Great work!

    Which pink vinyl are you using with the tongue? Oracal 651 Pink (code: 041)?

    I'm not going to get into a battle here over what is morally right or wrong, but may I invite you to investigate the vast industry of reverse engineering. Humans have been reverse engineering for thousands of years.

    What I did today :)

    I second this! When a client came to me asking for the same thing you've done, I contacted each of the auto companies to obtain permission. Only half of them permitted it. The other half firmly assured me that they do not allow sign shops to reproduce their logo (and that they do prosecute violators). It sucks, but they do OWN that logo and its usage.

    I'm pretty pleased how it all came out.

  15. Movin up to more complicated projects now. Did this one in about 5 hours, which included peeling off the old lettering. The banner is 4'x4', and I used a wet application method to apply Oracal 651. Hanging it up on campus tomorrow. How much would you guys have charged for something like this?
