I will post a picture of the sign tomorrow. I finished it a while back. It turned out nice.

Is this the same for everyone or is there a way to use the mask with end mills so the mask isn't all torn up?

Depending on the End Mill cut... use a V-Bit before to just break the Mask surface. Anotherwords run an inside/Female 'cut' with a V-bit about ~1/16"

Then run your End Mill as you normally would.
