Default More HDU Marketing Sample Signs

In between "learning things" and "dealing with things", I've been accumulating a few more marketing sample signs for that side of my business which is soon to go live. Here are a few more that have been completed.

A small idea for personalized signs for a kids room...name or initials





House sign featuring 3D contour plus a "bronze" plaque look...I really, really like this one



Large "farm" sign...painted, masked for v-carve and then lettering colored prior to removing the mask. 3D appliqué cut separately and applied. I'm guessing that something like this would be gilded in real life. (30" wide)

Very nice, Jim! I like the house plaque as well. What kind of paint did you use?

Yea, I'm really pleased with the house plaque for sure. Primed with a few coats of SW ProClassic (because I had it handy from my kitchen project and it was grey), the bronze is Rustoleum metallic bronze from a spray bomb and the black is a water borne Rustoleum paint I had hanging around. I'm using "what I have" for all these samples. I also frequent the "Oops!" paint rack at the 'borg and get the small containers of various "mistake" colors to play with. At 50 cents a container, they are cost effective for play.

What was fun about this one was organizing the tool path order. Doing these "marketing samples" is really helping me get a good sense of being as efficient as possible, both for cut order and for arranging things to minimize the number of times my Stinger asks me to change the tool. I'm working on some box designs right now that have a bunch of similar operations across multiple components on a board (2 sided, even) and getting all the tool paths in a logical order to take advantage of what tool is in the collet really gets important.

I should add that TR has provided me with some interesting comments, suggestions and ideas for kicking some of these sign ideas up a notch. Kudos to him for being so kind and giving to a newbie!

What a great idea about checking the "oops" paints! I never would have thunk it!
Thanks for a great tip.

TR is indeed a wealth of info & great tips and always willing to share.

I actually scored a quart of top quality bright yellow the other day for two bucks. This was something like an $18+ can of paint that apparently just wasn't the right shade of yellow for someone. :)
