Well, it has been a hectic few months as I ended up making wooden signs for a few clients as Christmas gifts. For anyone who has read my previous posts, I am all about paper and I did make a few of my Christmas Cards and sell the digital files on my Etsy account.
Here are some of my learning with Vinyl, wood and canvas
- when the piece is very large you really need a lot of words to fill the space. this one was 14 x 24, I had a large phrase and it was still a bit empty even after the frame when on.
- Lining everything up went smoothly if you used squares or dots when cutting the words out. When cutting out the “c” I cut all the little black boxes. When I cut the wreath, I cut the little black boxes also together with the blue box at the end of each line. This really helped keep the letters lined up. I did not take a photo so here is a screenshot
3. I also did some lettering on painted canvas. Regular vinyl was ok but silver tinfoil vinyl was a nightmare and I will use heat transfer vinyl next time for any metallic colours.Th photo does not show but the lettering would not stay stuck down in places.
Some other wooden signs I did and loved… this one is a screenshot as once again I did not get a chance to take a photo
These are still to be delivered:
Should be back on track with my paper items in the New Year.
