This one is gonna be big for me.
I am going to make a sign - lots of new things I will be learning as well as you guys watching me go through what I go through.
This might get long winded.
Maybe by now you may have noticed I can be long winded - but I do hope it's fun as well.
First - PLEASE - understand - I am in NO WAY - a master or a craftsman - or even well versed in sign making. I will be leaning EXTREMELY heavily on the REAL professionals at 3D Sign Forum. I will be posting there as well - but not the same stuff I will be posting here. I will be asking for help there. This post will make it appear that I know what I am doing - but in reality - this thread will just be me - doing what it is that I do.
In making a sign there are a lot of things to consider. Text size - how far away the reader is - context of the area - traffic flow - COLORS - of the sign - materials - how the sign will be mounted. Lots of other stuff I have not mentioned.
In the area where this sign will be mounted the design will need to be presented to the city for approval due the the fact that DownTown New Bedford is registered as a national historic district. Ohhh - I could go on with that and my interest is my home town and the history of New Bedford. I gotta stop on that now - so many thoughts flittering around in my head.
REALLY - this is going to be a ROYAL - FASCINATING PROJECT -----
It is so often that I also will be watching this project unfold - because LEO - does NOT yet know the story either ---- It will be happening as I watch just as you watch.
I will try to video and post it as well. I will also be good and not show you my hippy side with bare feet in the shop.
I will need to put the house remodeling on hold a bit.
This IS a paying job. It also IS very much a fun hobby job - to a paying customer - and very much professional.
OK - so are we ready????? NUFF already with the introduction. LET's get started.
I think I will go get a video intro going - just a quickie. You will probably wanna watch me working too.
