Birch Grove Cattery

Just got the go for this sign, 4' x 3' ish on 2 posts supply only. Before anyone asks I found the cat in a Corel clipart book and designed the rest of it around him. Painted exterior grade MDF board and the rest vinyl.

Very nice I like it the only thing that bugs me is the dash lines between the sub text i think small diamonds or dots would do the trick maybe a different colour - maybe the colour used in the heading immitation gold

Hi Steve!
I'm with Adrian on the dashes. But I would use little cat paw prints instead of dots. And the kitty needs a corresponding grey shadow under him like on the main copy to make him "pop".
Cute! I like the main copy font too. Can you soften the areas between the 2 colors on it to blend it?
I was laughing when I saw the title of your post...as far as I know, we do not have catteries here!
Love- JILL
:wink:

Great idea about the paw prints Jill thanks and yes there should be a shadow under him, between Signlab and making a JPG in Corel its vanished (?)

That looks GREAT!!! The only thing that's got me thinking is that the black outline on the cat is thicker than the sign border, and the (oh i swore !) is not jumping as maybe the lazy bugger should.

I can't wait to see this one made Steve.

As Henry says even better in the flesh/vinyl. Colours really kick out.

I read this! Then thought “yes!! Ive got the big man! Chuckling to myself.. :lol: :lol:

Then I read this

Its that Scotsman's influence, just cos he can't spell he's put a bug in to jinx everyone else well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it, honest it was right before I uploaded it


:o Damn… Ill get you yet mate.. I have to. It’s in my blood.. :wink: :lol:
Who said freedom... :wink: :lol: :lol:


Steve I love the sign.. Really, cracking work and comical at the same time. I bet many comment on it to your customer..
I greed with Jill and Adrian about the dash-paws..
Looks better now you amended it. One thing though.. (No im not mentioning kerning) the paws maybe better in the same brown as the top half of the title letter.. Breaks it up a little
:wink:
