shop signage: dental surgery

Here is a job we completed yesterday. Nothing special about it except that it was done all in vinyl, whereas in the past I would have done most of it with paint, maybe I'm getting lazy!

Before anyone says it, I know, there's a bit of black vinyl that wasn't weeded out between the T and the A.
The customer supplied the logo (tooth), I put it in the diamond to try and improve it.

The facia and the window consumed over 23m of vinyl and 7 hours labour, not including design.
I charged about $900 (360 pounds)

Excellent Gray. You might want to suggest that your sign makes their building need a bit of a painting on the balcony above! :wink:

You say nothing special Gray but it’s a good looking sign, the sort that keeps putting the food on the table.

Now Robert’s going to come on and say, “I’d have liked the kerning opened up a bit” :lol: :lol: :lol:
But I think you've got it spot on as it is because the light colour of the chisel font helps to keep the lettering open.

I bet Rob Roy is plotting his revenge on me now. (:) (:)

Rob Roy :lol: :lol: :lol: what an image that conjures up!

I did wonder about opening it up, but wanted a 'tight' design.
I also would have liked maybe a light grey drop shade to tart it up a bit, again, didn't want to overdo it.

yes, the building does need a paint job.

I'm sorry that this job seems to be bringing back painful memories for some :(
Eddie, you're gonna hafta give up the sweeties, you reap wotcha sow you know!! :wink:

Doing the tooth logo was a big pain for me, the customer kept changing their minds about it and making small changes.

Yes Eddie, see you in Ireland real soon!
