I found out tonight that the quick Open House Today sign I tossed together on a plexi window was shattered.
Bad Design, so on to v.02 ( I chose the plexi so it would stand to a fall, but failed in the QA testing stage) and I did intend to build a base for it, but doubt I would have secured it to the base.
So for V.02 I will do the same thing with a A frame of wood, and another Plexi window if there is one, and work towards a backlight for the later hours / winter.
But before I start with it, I thought I would ask if anybody would like it to say something else.
My plan is to do a
HackFactory in a light blue or gray a the top, with a similar Open house Now! in white, 4.5 inch letters all around, and when I get better Curve the HackFactory letters at the top. Then I would again spray the back with a dark color, though not dark enough to block a backlight.
But since it will be a couple days before I get back to the cutter, I thought I would toss it open to all.
I will consider anything, but since I am doing the work, I may exercise personal judgement on the final sign.
Also having said this, I have also volunteered to make vinyl letters for our new office exterior door, so I would like the space planning group or somebody to decide what they want said. My skills are still a work in progress, but I should be able to work with most text and I am starting to get to graphics after a process of tracing imported bitmaps, jpg, etc. I will order some Red per a request from Metis, but basically have White and Black in quanity, with sample rolls of a few other colors while I teach myself the very basics of this craft.
