    Help with sign pricing

    I think I see what you're talking about. Not sure why the PDF looks like that, it is just a yellow outline shadow. Looks goofy in PDF.

    That's how he wanted it. Wasn't my initial design, it's what he liked.

    Yea, I understand that. But without getting his permission, I didn't want to put it out there via the interwebs. Any advice on the pricing?

    No, it is the phone number but I took it out for privacy purposes

    Here is what it looks like. What would you be at with having to layer? I was at $260 and I thought I was giving him a deal. Was I that far off? Tyson.pdf

    Help with sign pricing

    Hey guys! I know this will vary depending on market and area etc. This is my 1st "big" sign project and I have no idea what to price it. It's on a 4'x8' piece of steel and it's 2 sides. I initially tried to cover the steel in vinyl to have a base color, that obviously didn't work well and I wasted a lot of vinyl but I don't want to charge the customer for the wasted time. I ended up painting the steel for the base coat. I'm using 4 colors of vinyl and I've had a few things to layer. It's pretty basic with just font and a tree in the center. Any help on pricing would really help out a lot! Thanks!

    HELP! Transfer tape for small letters on Oracal 651

    I actually just had the same exact problem with the same tape on a order of 75 smaller decals I just did. I re-squeeged the bejusus out of all of them and still had trouble with some of the letters lifting. Luckily the order was for a friend from school and if there's any issues I'll be able to fix it with no issues, but I will be changing my tape choice next time I order.

    Design Help

    I'm not looking for that wording, I wanted to create my own but with the "metal hand" as the outline for the wording. I'm creating a design for a professional wrestlers gimmick and was thinking about going this route. It's a free job, so I was hoping to find an easy way to throw it together....of course not. Lol

    Design Help

    Hey again guys! So I'm working on a design, nothing vinyl related, but I could use some help. I'm attempting to use the "metal hand" and I'd like to form text to the shape. I've tried envelope text numerous times but I can't get it to form. Pic attached is kind of the idea I'm going for. Any help would be awesome!

    Help with a knockout design

    Thanks for all the help! I have some experience with Illustrator and I usually don't have an issue figuring things out on my own, but for some reason this just wasn't coming out how I was picturing it. I did end up figuring it out by using a few of the techniques you suggested and combining them. Don't mind the horrible cutting lines, i was using an old blade Thanks again!

    Help with a knockout design

    That's what I was doing, but when it cuts, it either doesn't give me the full letter through the object, or it does what it shows in the photo and cuts through the object. I'm using AI CC 2015, I don't see an Extrude? Would it be Merge? I'm going to run off a few more tests using your guys' help and see if I can get it.

    Help with a knockout design

    Here's an example of how it's cutting. I've tried offset path, but it makes the path too big. I've tried everything I can think of to get it to come out how I want it, but I'm unable to get it there.

    Help with a knockout design

    Hey guys! I'm trying to create a decal using Illustrator. The issue I'm having is, I have an object but I want some font to be inside and some outside of the object. I'm unsure how to get this to cut in a way that it comes out correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Cutting letters unevenly

    Ok thanks guys! I'll give that a shot. I know my rollers are a little looser than they probably should be because I was trying to get rid of the "roller marks" but after reading a bit on the forums I guess those are normal? I'll adjust to your suggestions and see how it works. Thanks again!
