Default Sometimes I use a marker to help with other aspects of signs

So I am creating a rather large reverse gilded glass reception desk backer for a client. I needed to try and get a mock-up done to see where it sits on the wall and how to align studs with holes so that it looked right. Most of the time I would print a sample on a large format plotter but that is very flimsy and difficult to level.

I have one of the original Cosmos pen holders so I thought I would try and lay it out full size on coroplast. It worked perfect and was far easier to dial in issues found with spacing and level on wall.

You don't always have to cut stuff with your machine to show it's value in everyday activities.

I love my Cosmos pen. Planning on using it this week to mark grids on my spoil board to keep things lined up nice.
